    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+ weeksinterviewed 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 through an employee referral – interviewed at Home Depot Canada.

    Interview Details

    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.
