If I was to talk to your previous managers, what would they say are your strengths and weaknesses?

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Home Depot Canada.

    Interview

    The interviewers asked questions that were very though provoking. They asked a lot of very technical, systematic questions, wanting to know specifically HOW processes were done at past companies. They wanted lots of examples on times you had to do things above and beyond the scope of your past roles when you were not asked.
