    Merchandise Planner Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a Home Depot recruiter about the position on LinkedIn. I sent my resume and got a phone interview.

    After the phone screen I had to take two online assessments, one was more about my personality and the other was a basic math skills test. After this I waited about a week and a half and didn't hear anything so I reached out to the recruiter. That day I got a call back to set up an in person interview.

    I had the in person interview about two weeks later. The first hour of the interview was a case study. I worked on the case study then after the hour was up I went in front of two senior merchants and one HR recruiter. They started by asking about the case and my analysis of the problems presented. The next part was the more standard interview about my background and about how I would fit in with the department goals. I was told I would hear back from them that night.

    I got the call back that night, and the next step was a "fit" phone interview with a VP. That happened the next day. Then that next Monday I got a call that I was being offered the job.

    Every person I interacted with from the security guards, to the receptionist, to the recruiters and merchants were nothing but nice and reassuring. They all put me at ease and made me feel really comfortable throughout the process. In total it took about 4 weeks, but after I had the in person interview I knew in 2 days that I had been offered the position.

    Interview Questions

    Resolution Expeditor Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application online. A week later I was contacted via email to take a personality screening and skills assessment online. This test was relatively simple and took about 1 1/2 hours to complete. After completing the online assessment, the next day I was invited to come in for a face to face interview. The face to face interview was routine. It involved me and the manager of the customer care department. He was very nice and made me feel comfortable. The questions S.T.A.R. based behavioral style. The email inviting me to the face to face interview had a link with sample behavioral questions. After the interview, I was told to have a seat for some in HR. She then escorted me and another gentleman applying for the position out. Based on other interviews on glassdoor, those that were hired were offered the job on the spot. So I am left to assume I didn't get an offer.

    Logistics Analyst Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Just a single round of interview. Mostly based on a standard set of behavioral questions (Tell me about a time ..' type questions) and questions on points stated on your resume. Was called by the HR after about 3 weeks to enquire about my visa status (OPT). Subsequently, I was called by the hiring manager and told that I had be selected for the position and would be offered a salary of 58k. I was asked to drop by their office within the next week for a round of 'introductions'. I went to the office and met my hiring manager's supervisor. As someone with significant work ex and a Masters degree, the salary was well below my expectations. It seemed more like an entry level job with some reporting to do and calling up vendors to ensure compliance with their transportation policy.

    I tried to negotiate the salary but was told it is comparable to the salaries being offered to other logistics analysts in the company. I then tried to find about their leave policy and asked if they would give longer vacation period to which they replied in the negative. They also do not have a sign in bonus nor a relocation amount.

    And then, the HR informed me that I had to confirm my acceptance within 24-48 hours, which I felt was ridiculous. When they took more than 3 weeks to get back to me, I felt I deserved at least a week or two weeks to take my call. I asked the HR to speak to the manager and see if they were willing to extend the time for me to consider the offer.

    Guess what. The next day, I get a call from the HR and she says my offer has been rescinded!!

    More than their decision to cancel the offer, I felt offended by the manner in which they went about it and communicated their decision in a very impersonal and even rude manner. Initially I was upset when I received the call but then later I felt i was'nt a good fit in HD's work culture.

    God's been kind and I have had good interviews with another big company and the salary being offered there is commensurate with my experience and skillset.

    So, if you think you are good and are smart and well qualified, think twice before you apply to HD.

    IPR Analyst Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a strategist position through LinkedIn and was contacted within a few days. I exchanged a couple of emails which led to a phone interview. During the phone interview I was told the position had been filled just that day, however, the recruiter wanted to see if another opportunity may be available. I traded a few emails with the recruiter after the phone call and finally almost a month after the initial phone interview I was asked to interview in person down in Atlanta. I was told I would have two interviews but ended up having four interviews. Each interview had two managers and my final interview had two senior managers. Everyone was extremely friendly. Some of the interviewers struggled with the format of the interview because they were given packets that had specific questions they had to ask. When all the interviews were over, I was told I would be contacted and was pleasantly surprised when I was given a gift card to use at any Home Depot.

    Interview Questions
