    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at OfficeMax (Milwaukie, OR (US)) in April 2015.


    I was in the store and saw a hiring sign. I asked the guy at the door about the hours they were looking for. He commented the application is online. Due to the OfficeMax/Office Depot merger, the online portion is a pain. Make sure to check your email and do the personality assessment. After I did so, I went back to the store to speak with the store manager. He had already printed out my resume and was doing interviews the following week. I got a call on Wednesday. Interviewed Friday morning. He is waiting on the results of my background check (3-5 business days), after which he told me he will call with an offer of employment. We were talking about training schedules before I left.
