    Flooring Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Home Depot Canada in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I have applied to Home Depot 3 times over ten years in two states. If u are not persistent they will drop the ball. I have a 18 year history of carpentry and 15 year sales and a BA with a focus in Marketing. I assumed I would be a little more valuable than the average employee. It is not the case with Home Depot however. I hope I don't experience the negative effects which seem so consistent of the employee reviews. Which are slow advancement and pay raises, terrible work scheduling and dismal work/life balance. Will update in 90 days.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Home Depot Canada in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Depending on the time of the season, there will be different ways to apply. Usually you apply online through job banks or through their site directly. Most stores will have a hiring day/week depending on the amount of workforce they need to fill for the spring/summer. You hand in your application and resume (cover letter is a bonus) and wait for that specific's store human resource manager to contact you for a phone interview. Very easy questions usually related to past experiences you have related to sales or any outside experience that you may posess that applies to a specific department (plumbing, electrical, building materials). After a week or two you recieve another phone call to come in and meet with a manager to answer a few more questions. If they like what they see, you hear back from them and sign the employment papers with the Store Manager and begin your training. The actual hiring process lasts from 1-4 weeks depending on how much they require individuals.

    Interview Questions
    • If you saw a fellow associate being disrespectful to a customer, how would you deal with that situation.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I'm sure if you have prior experience and in depth knowledge about a certain field, you could negotiate a better starting rate. For students just applying to be cashiers/sales associate I, there is no negotiation.
