    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Staples (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and they contacted me a week or so later. The interview itself was easy-going. The manager took me to the back, asked me generic questions as well as having me sell him a printer on the floor as if I was working there to see what I'd be like - which was perfect. I was called four days after my interview confirming I got the job offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Staples (Commerce Township, MI) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was asked questions about the company that I was being interviewed for and the one I previously worked for. Not at any time was I asked anything about me as an employee. I'm sure it was my fault for not brushing up on the company before the interview but this was the worst interview I've ever had. It was almost patronizing

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Staples (Carbondale, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Came in and waited for her to complete her interview with another candidate, and I could hear every word that was said. My interview was very laid back, and a little awkward, she asked questions, but often went off on tangents about her personal life. Could tell she was preoccupied and/or nervous. Interview lasted about 30 minutes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Staples.

    Interview

    Ask about my personality etc. I was a little shy at the beginning but then I kind of opened up and talked about more about myself, which I think made the interviewer liked me and wanted to give me chance to continue the interview process. But they suddenly told me that they want to change my position to sale stuff, so I didn't continue the interview process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Staples (The Dalles, OR) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, within 2 days the Assistant Manager got a hold of me and asked me some basic question over the phone like "Can you do an OS installation?" "Do you know how to transfer data?" After answering yes to both of them she asked if I could come in the next day for an interview, my first interview was with the GM, it was pretty casual. We sat at a desk in the furniture area and he ran over the basic questions with me and I was actually unconfident because he seemed to not be very interested in me and I was nervous.
