Interview Details – I applied online which consisted of a skills test and a personality test. I was contacted by corporate HR (which they called "The Home Depot Retail Staffing Center") a couple days later and I had a phone interview, which consisted of a few questions involving work experience, work attitude, background, and information regarding the job I applied for which was a cashier. I passed the phone interview and had a one on one interview with the store HR, which they call an "ASDS". The interview consisted of basic scripted questions involving work experience which I already rehearsed the answers for. I also asked the interviewer some important questions to give me an insight into my future working at The Home Depot. After the interview, I was immediately scheduled for a second interview with the Store Manager. The second interview was a couple days later, and it was less formal and more personal. After that interview, I was sent to be drug tested the same day and I was told that I would be hired once my drug test and background check passed. Two weeks later I got the call that I was hired and scheduled for a group orientation.

Interview Details –
You will be interviewed several times. The first one will be by the phone. You won't call them, they will call you. The first interview will be a background. If they like you, they will refer you to a store.
The second interview will be from an employee, usually from HR or management. They can be lenient to prospective employees, and will also ask about your background, and a few questions based on situations, and a 'What Would You Do' kind of fashion. Nothing to fret about, just a mild q&a.
The third interview will be from the Store Manager. The Store Manager can be a wild card, so be prepared. Sometimes, they can be polite and relaxed, like mine was. Other times, according to other associates from other stores, they can be hell bent and a tad bit over abrasive with a short temper tantrum equivalent to that of a spoiled child. They don't last long at one store, though. They will ask you about why you want to work at The Home Depot, so do your research thoroughly! Don't forget to show enthusiasm and cheerfulness.
Interview Question – I forgot. Most of the questions seemed to be pretty easy and straightforward. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation, however, if they like you, they will offer higher than their top dollar.
