Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Staples (New York, NY).

Interview

Interview was great. I loved the general manager she was very easy going and a people person. I found out it only paid $12 an hour at the end of the interview. Felt like I wasted my time wish I knew before I went in.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Staples in June 2015.

    Interview

    bait and switch. They posted an opening for operations supervisor, then they told me that they were hiring for this position internally. I asked then why am I here? The guy explained that they were looking for associates and offered me a part time job as an associatiate for minimum wage. Good grief. I have had some bad interviews, but this one will forever reign surpreme. That is the worst practice I have ever heard of, hiring entry level part time help from a senior level manager posting.
