    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Staples (Atlanta, GA) in February 2020.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted by the sales manager. Once he was finished with his questions, I proceeded to meet with the store manager for a quick second. The entire interview was only for 10 minutes at the max. I was asked some generic questions about my previous role and what I bring to the table.

    Easy Tech Sales Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Staples (Wilkesboro, NC).

    Interview

    Walked in a Lady Greeted me at the Door and I was promptly brought back to the back of the store for interviewing. Absolutely no privacy was given whatsoever.

    I was asked some basic situational questions and some questions on my values and competency along with some hypothetical scenario questions.

    I was then told that I would have a series of follow up interviews to confirm that I was right for the Job.

    I was given every indication that I would be employed there. She essentially told me the chances were very likely that I would be hired.

    Afterwards trying to call back several times someone finally answered the phone as a store manager and told me I'm the sorry to tell you the truth we gave the Job to someone else that we know or something along those lines.

    It appeared to be blatant nepotism and I was pretty upset with it all. No I never received my follow up interviews as was promised.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Staples (Newark, NJ).

    Interview

    The interview was just a conversation with the store manager. He was a good guy, very chill. I feel that the interview would vary depending on the store and who is interviewing you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Staples (Framingham, MA) in January 2020.

    Interview

    This is totally useless information for everyone, by glassdoor requires 30+ words: Found an open position on the internal site. Personally knew the hiring manager, so I just walked into his office and asked if I can be a good candidate. We discussed his short term and long term expectation from a candidate. It didn't match my expectations, so the inverview was over.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Staples.

    Interview

    I got the call to come in for an interview the same day I submitted my online application, and I was hired immediately after the interview. The store was short-staffed though, so I think that's why it went so quickly.
