Sale Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA

Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Staples (San Jose, CA) in July 2017.

Interview

I applied to staples, but after a week of waiting they didn't call me, so I had to call them. Got an interview. The interview was one on one with one of the managers, he talked about what staples was like and stuff like that, then he asked me if I had any questions. It was kinda weird and thought why he didn't ask me many questions. Afterwards, he said they call me on Wednesday, but I didn't get the call, so I had to call them again and they told me they were still interviewing other applicants.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Staples (Hershey, PA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I showed up early but had to wait until my schedule time anyway. We went into a really big empty conference room. Interviewer was quiet and maybe a little shy which made my quiet/shy side come out too. The entire interview is what I wrote below in the questions section. When I left I honestly thought it could go either way. When he asked me to tell him about myself I mentioned that I had built my own computer, so later when they called me back they asked if I would be interested in the Technology Sales position instead, which pays $0.30 more per hour.
