Interview Details – HD has a very active recruiting department that conducts information sessions at various colleges. These information sessions cater to both potential full time employees following graduation for Seniors and also summer internships for Juniors. These information sessions are a great place to establish a connection with not only the recruiters, but also management within Finance and Accounting. The application process is completely online, but handing the recruiter a hard copy of your resume goes a long way. First round interview is via phone, mine was in November. Basic questions were asked, just trying to get to know more about you, very laid back interview. Second round of interview process was an online critical thinking test. No way to study or prepare for it, strictly a test of your thought process, and the way you work through situations. Third step if you have made it through the first two, is an invitation to interview at the corporate office, SSC, in Atlanta. In this interview I interviewed with 3 different members of management from the Finance department. The first two proctored "structured interview guides" basically a packet of questions they asked and they wrote down your answers. ex: Tell me about a time when priorities changed quickly. Tell me about a time when you were assigned a task that you did not have the resources to complete. Tell me about a time when you had to convince someone else to change their opinion and how did you go about doing it. Third person proctored a case study. Basic analysis of a project given sales, COGS, units sold, and then comparing two possible projects based on NPV and cash flows. The case study was the only finance related part of the interview, and only covered basic concepts that would be taught in a intro to finance course. Offers were given out approximately a week after the face to face interviews.

Interview Details – I received an email saying I would be receiving a phone call for a brief phone interview. I was expecting maybe the next day or so but I actually got the call within an hour or so. It is automated at first and asks if it was not a good time. If you are busy take say you want them to call back because I just this time was fine when I was walking around with friends no thinking it would be as long and in depth as it was described. They ask you a series of questions along the lines of describe a situation when... You want to make sure you speak slowly because the person on the phone is typing it all while you're talking to them so you want to make sure they don't miss anything. They then schedule you an in store interview. The job title they interviewed me for in person was different than what they told me on the phone, but it didn't matter to me. You go into a back office with one of the managers and they ask you pretty much the exact same questions the person on the phone did. The standard what would you do in this situation, what are your strengths and weaknesses. The in store interview was only about 15-20 min and the phone was maybe 30 min because of all the automated stuff before you got the real perosn
