Dunder Mifflin Infinity (DMI) is a game in which players become employees of a particular branch. Branches then compete against each other online for Schrute Bucks and prizes throughout the season.

I was lucky enough to get a personalized tour of the site, and I can tell you an incredible amount of work, not to mention attention to detail, went into the creation of DMI.

Let the games begin!

  1. I have Schrutebucks, but not idea if people are signing up under me – I mean, they SAY they are, but I’ve gotten no notifications.

    As I posted before – there seems to be a duplication of branch codes, although the dupes I’ve seen have been for different branches. I emailed the Infinity team asking about this, but have received no reply.

  2. Tanster – Do we know if 15 is the maximum number of employees at a branch? Or if, once the branch has an established regional manager, we will be able to add additional employees? NAers are currently trying to figure out if we need to start another group and I can’t find a place on the Dunder Mifflin website to actually ask a question where I can expect a response.

    Any idea?

  3. Claire: Does it matter if you are in the UK? When I filled in my details as coming from the UK it still let me sign up!

  4. Question: Is there a maximum number of employees per branch?

    Minimum number of employees: 15. There is no maximum number of employees.

    Employees should be able to join any branch now, but there currently is a glitch with some branches not appearing in the drop-down list. NBC is aware of it and working on a fix. If you don’t see your branch listed, try again a little later.

  5. How do I get Schrute bucks?!
    I want to be in the TN, Chattanooga branch, but only as an employee. If anyone sees a code – will you post it?
    I’m so excited!

  6. Question: How are employees hired?

    Emily, the way I think it works is this:

    If you apply as an employee of a branch and enter a branch hiring code that a prospective manager has given you, then you’re automatically hired for that branch IF that manager is hired.

    If you apply as an employee of a branch and DO NOT enter a branch hiring code, then once a branch manager is hired, they can accept or reject your application.

  7. How do we get manager codes now since we cannot find/post them on here?
    Does anyone know how long it takes to get approved?

  8. Thanks tanster! i just discovered that it let me apply! Which is awesome, because normally NBC hate us Brits. Yay! I’ve just gone for normal employee though as I don’t have 15 friends who like The Office (although I can now say I converted 6 people to it which is good going – and surely i should get Shrute bucks for that!) x

  9. Question: I know I earned Schrutebucks, but they aren’t showing up on my page.

    Stacy, NBC is aware of that issue, too. You do have Schrutebucks — they just aren’t displaying properly right now.

  10. So if you get rejected by a branch manager then what do you do? I wonder if the RM also assigns the positions

  11. Question: What happens if my EMPLOYEE application is rejected?

    If a branch manager turns down your application, you can then re-apply to another branch. Click the “Re-Apply” link from your profile page.

  12. If you apply as a manager and are not awarded the job does your application automatically transfer to a standard employee or do you need to reapply?

  13. Posting again to comply with new comment policy. :)

    Does anyone have more details? It says that Branch Managers will get to approve applicants, does this mean it’s possible you might not get to participate at all? Is there a max number of people in a branch?
