I applied online. The process took 4 days – interviewed at The Home Depot (Detroit, MI).
Casual, brief the average retail interview process. Was hired same day as my second interview. Similar to any retail job. Had maybe one or two perks above but not much.

I applied online. The process took 5 days – interviewed at The Home Depot (Baton Rouge, LA).
I applied online and got a call asking if I could schedule an interview, so I did. The day of the interview I was sitting in a waiting room like area and waiting two hours to get with someone, the person who interviewed me was alright, she asked about my previous work experience, and talked about Home Depot's history. From then, she told me I'll hear something if they're interesting. Sure enough the next day I got a phone call from someone in their HR telling me...they will not be hiring me, but they like my personality and asked for me to apply again (...Really?)

I applied online – interviewed at The Home Depot (Baltimore, MD) in April 2015.
I did the application online, got a call back a couple days later about doing a phone interview. The phone interview was rather easy just a few questions about yourself. The rep then told me that she wanted to schedule a interview in person. That interview was fairly easy, just six questions. After that the manager told me that I should be receiving a call back from them within the next couple of days. . . Got the call the next day asking me to come in the day after for a background check. Lets see how this goes.

I applied online. The process took 3 days – interviewed at The Home Depot (West Covina, CA) in April 2015.
First interview is over the phone then they schedule you for a in person interview. My first in person interview was a Lil nerve wrecking because the man who interviewed me only asked questions and didn't blink or look away from me the entire time. I'm sure I won him over because my next interview was the very next day with the store manager who was AMAZING. Such a sweet down to earth gentleman.

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at The Home Depot (American Fork, UT) in April 2015.
They email you telling you they'll call you for an interview with an automated system. Or you can call their phone number in the email.
The automated phone interview was super easy, you just pressed numbers to answer the questions and it was very straight forward. Then you're transferred to an actual person. There were about four interview questions which weren't too difficult, but not easy.
She then set up an appointment for an in person interview
- What is one situation where you went above and beyond what was expected of you when providing customer service? Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day – interviewed at The Home Depot (Marietta, GA) in April 2015.
my interview was quick and easy . She hired me on spot. I honestly had been calling and calling because if you don't call them they won't call you . I didn't go through the phone screen process. I just called the hiring manager and she told me to come in for an interview.
- what is the least thing you like about being a cashier ? What would you do if a customer asked you about a product that you didn't know about? Answer Question
I applied online – interviewed at The Home Depot in April 2015.
Everything was smooth...I have alot of experience of being a cashier so I kinda knew what to expect. The questions were pretty easy and common sense. I had my first and second interview in one day and now I have to do my drug test.

The process took a week – interviewed at The Home Depot.
I got a phone call couple days after i applied online. Phone interview was first, where they ask if you are still interested in the position. Then the set up a face to face interview at the store. There, the interview was very easy. Asked simple questions. They said welcome aboard. Then i had to fill out this information card on the computer. The hiring lady gave me papers to take to Quest diagnostic for a drug test. About a week after that i got a call for orientation.

Well if the manager could talk correctly and not mumble maybe just maybe the interview would have gone better but I had to keep asking what to every question .. few days latter they called with a job offer I declined no way would I work for that nonsense
