    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edmonton, AB
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Office Depot in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    The whole process took about 3 hours. I filled out an application in store, then did an online test of 182 questions all pretty straight forward. E.g. Have you ever stolen from an employer? Do you feel dishonesty is a good thing to do to make a sale ?

    During the one to one interview it was simple. Have you ever worked retail and asked for examples of when you had a great boss and when you had a bad boss and how you dealt with it. Also asked how long I would commit to office depot.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Office Depot.

    Interview Details

    It took about 4 days to actually get hired. I submitted my resume and got a call the next day. The following day I went for the test they require. It was the normal "what would you do in different situations" type test and a drug screen. The following day I came in for two separate interviews, one with the store manager and one with the assistant manager. Both were very easy to talk to and didn't make me feel intimidated at all. The next day I was called and offered a job.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Office Depot in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    The interview was short and easy and the woman who interviewed me was vocal about wanting to hire me. I received a call about a week and a half later asking me to come in for orientation the next week. I had made a list of possible interview questions and compiled answers for all of them, which definitely helped in preparing me for the interview.

    Claims Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    I only got to my initial phone interview and decided that based on several factors, this company was NOT for me. The corporate recruiter failed to call me as scheduled a few times. When on the phone, she started going thru my work experience, but it was quickly evident that she didn't understand the terminology she was using and didn't understand the position. She then reads off a paper to give me very general information about the position, but doesn't ask if I have any questions. She makes assumptions about my work experience because she doesn't understand the position she's recruiting and the call ends. I found it to be a poor experience overall. No respect for my time when setting up a phone interview and not calling (several times) and I got the sense that she thought I was desperate for a job or something. I rescinded my application about 30 minutes after getting off the phone.
