I interviewed at Staples

Interview

Brief, zoom based interview. Not impressive. Interview lasted less than 30 minutes. Recruiter seemed distracted and not in the least interested. Would not recommend applying unless you have a connection there that can get you into the process.

I interviewed at Staples

Interview

It was pretty easy. I’m glad I had the experience Rabat I did. Went from a tech associate to a manager within 10 months. After 12 months, no pay raise, which is why I left

Average. An HR person to screen, and then the hiring manager and team. It did not seem overly burdensome like some interview processes I have had. It was neutral to positive experience.

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Staples (New York, NY) in Apr 2021

Interview

Applied online and was contacted quickly. Met with an HR recruiter first and this interview was done over the phone. It took about two weeks before meeting with the hiring manager, that was done with TEAMS but the hiring manager did not go on camera, thought that was strange as I was.

Interview Questions
  • What is your experience with technology? How comfortable was I with technology?
  • Did I have experience selling cloud services?
  • Did I have experience selling security services?
  • What were my sales quotas in my last job?
  • What was the biggest sale I ever made?
  • Explain what I did at my last job? How did I find/create leads? This job position is mostly hunter not farmer so they were interested in how I generated sales leads.
  • What level did I sell to? Wanting to know if I engaged with C-Level.
  • Why did I want to work at Staples? Why did I think I was a good fit for the job?
  • What brought us here today? In other words why was I looking for a job?

Went well I think that the process of the interview was rather not as difficult as the image had been perceived and most would think that it is going to be difficult.
