    Part Time Permanent Bilingual Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at The Home Depot in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Online application, online assessment, brief visit with cashier manager, phone interview, one in person interview, and drug test. Try to apply in spring for they need people for summer. Home improvement occurs when the weather is nice.

    Interview Questions
    • Customer service is the key. If you have recent experience in customer service, interview is a breeze. However, they hire cashiers without experience too. Just show them that you are nice, sincere, and easy to get along with. Treat them like you would treat your own family. Home Depot is like a big family.

      Benefits for permanent part-time: PTO, sick leave, 401(K), stock purchase plan, dental, vision, hospital, critical illness, success sharing, and time and a half for working on holidays (need to verify this because I’m not very sure since I’m new).

      More perks for part-time: friendly co-workers, flexible scheduling (can work on weekends only), and get to wear jeans (so you don’t have to buy a different wardrobe for work).

      Sadly, NO MEDICAL INSURANCE. Have to buy Obamacare.

      Timeline for cashier:

      · First time applied, waited for six months, no response.
      · Applied again for the second time. Waited for a week. No response. Went into the store and talked to manager of cashiers. Gave her my name, phone number, and SSN.
      · Later received a phone interview.
      · Weeks later, invited for interview with cashier manager I talked to while I was in the store.
      · One week after first interview, called in for second interview but it was not an interview. HR just told me to go get a drug test then she ordered a background check at that moment.
      · Started working the following week.
      · From applying the second time to hiring, it had been two months, excluding the preceding six months.

      Questions are paraphased. I don’t remember the exact questions.

      Phone interview. The questions are the following:

      1. Tell me a time you went above and beyond in your job.
      2. Tell me a time you worked with a team. What was your role? How did it turn out?

      First in-person interview. The questions are the following:

      1. Tell me how you qualify for the job.
      2. Tell me a time you had to deal with a difficult customer. How did you handle the situation?
      3. Tell me one thing you had to do accurately or tell me a time you had to multi-task.
      4. How do you provide good customer service? Why is it important to provide good customer service?
      5. At the end of the day, what do you enjoy most about working at Home Depot?

      If you have a second interview with another manager. The questions are as follow:

      1. Why did you leave the job before your last job? (It’s okay to say that the pay was more that’s why you left the job before your last one. The manager will be understanding.)
      2. Why do you want to work for Home Depot? (Be sure to mention the employees are very nice. They treat each other with respect. It’s like a big family at Home Depot. This is very true.)

    Greeter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at The Home Depot in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online then called the store a few days later to see if I'd be able to schedule an interview. The HR Supervisor was very friendly and scheduled me for an interview the next day. I went in, she asked me the standard interview questions (previous job experience, tell me about yourself, etc.) then told me what the starting pay would be, the hours I'd be working, so on and so forth. I was instructed to take a drug test and submit consent for a background check and that was that. The process took longer than average because I was not not notified right away (my own fault, phone problems) when my background and drug tests came back clear but despite that, it was quick. I came back to the store the day after I spoke to her and started orientation/training.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions, they were pretty basic and predictable.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Home Depot in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    They do these job fairs a couple times a year. They go by the eye test more than by qualifications, as they will approach only certain people in the group. I was interested and qualified but had to pursue the sales managers in order to gain attention. Once that happened, it was smooth sailing.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no technical questions...just a sales job by the branch manager that I'd do well if I could pass the drug test and background check.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Castle Rock, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was relatively easy. I was called by a representative from their centrally located HR group in Atlanta. This person did a very brief 4 question interview. They would ask questions such as "describe a situation where you went out of your way to focus on customer service" or "describe a situation where you fostered a team environment to complete a task". I was then called by the local HR rep who scheduled an interview. This interview was with the store operations ASM and it lasted about 20 minutes. I was offered the job on-site.

    Interview Questions
    • Explain a time when you fostered a team environment to solve a complex problem or issue.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Thornton, CO
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at The Home Depot in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    It's pretty much a if you're "in" with the management at your store. They know who they will promote before they conduct interviews. I interviewed as a favor to my favorite asst. manager for Front End Supervisor because he had to conduct a certain number of interviews. I didn't even want that position; but I excelled in Customer Service and when I interviewed for Hardware Dept. Supervisor I breezed through it.

    Interview Questions
    • If you have worked for the depot long enough and know that you are "empowered' to help customers there are no surprising or difficult questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    You pretty much should take a 1.60/hr. raise. They can find someone else, every associate is expendable.
