Interview Details – I applied to work at the Home Depot and was called in to an interview about 6 weeks later. The interview was completely scripted and no variation was allowed and was done by an asst mgr. I was called back a few days later and rearranged my schedule so that I could meet with the store manager. I showed up a little early .. and waited and waited and waited for over an hour. Finally, a dept supervisor was asked to see me. The poor guy had no idea what he was supposed to do, other than we both figured out he was supposed to give me a form to complete allowing for a background check and also he gave me a form to take to get a drug test. Just as I was leaving, the store manager showed up. He had apparently decided that getting lunch was more important then meeting with he. He made me go in the office and spewed off some generic speel. I asked what position I was being offered and the pay. It was for a garden associate at the pay was under $10/hour. I thought is stunk, but took the job because I needed the insurance.
I was not pleased about the store manager not being respectful enough to be on time (he was over 1.5 hours late), and he did not even apologize. I hoped that my first impression of him was wring, but unfortunately, it was completely correct and I learned the hard way.
Negotiation Details – There was absolutely no "wiggle room" - and by the way - you DO NOT get a raise after 90 days. You get a raise only once per year, unless you move into a higher pay "band" position. The pay at the Home Depot is awful and you have to be aware that you will be promised promotions -- but with all the people that have been there longer, it will take years until you get it - if/when you do.... and that is the case even when you incredibly over-qualified, as I am.
