Easy Interview

Application

I applied online – interviewed at The Home Depot (Niagara Falls, NY).

Interview

The interview was great. My interviewer was extremely nice & down to earth. Felt more so like I was talking to a friend & not an interviewer. The interview was about an half an hour & I was told that she really liked me & that she would love to see me as apart of their team!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Home Depot (Fort Collins, CO).

    Interview

    The process is pretty quick. You apply online under the careers tab on the website. They called quickly and set up a face to face interview. It's pretty informal. They usually start you off entry level and you have opportunity to advance from there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    Sat down with manager and head cashier, was asked for a resume, resume was reviewed and I was asked questions about schooling and previous work experience. I was asked if I had any qualifications from previous employers that made me a better candidate. Relatively basic and simple process. Because the position was open, I was hired on the spot and started training that afternoon.

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at The Home Depot (Danvers, MA).

    Interview

    Interviewed with ASM first, on her recommendation, interviewed and hired by SM. This all happened after applying online in January then getting called in April. I was also given a telephone interview and was first offered a position in freight. Frankly, however, I have a college degree and this position was a "bridge" job.

    Interview

    Took 3-4 months before they actually gave me a phone interview and if you pass the phone interview they will email confirming a person to person interview within a week. The process overall does take long, usually they always hire alot of cashiers.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of cashier experience questions: 1. If you were the last person a customer come to what kind of service would you provide them? 2. when was a time when you experience an angry customer and how did you handle it?   Answer Question
