    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at The Home Depot (University of Denver, CO) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The entire process from application to interview was completely automated, mostly handled by robots. The interview questions were robotic standards, and despite feeling as though I'd made a personal impression on the interviewer, i had to call the store back to learn that "they'd found a more qualified applicant."

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot (Denver, CO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Once I submitted my online application I had to call the HR manager several times before I reached her and then was scheduled for an interview at a hiring event. The interview was brief and impersonal and unorganized. Once I completed the pre-hire requirements I again had to contact the store HR director for an on boarding and start date.

    Part Time Permanent Bilingual Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at The Home Depot (Denver, CO) in April 2014.

    Interview

    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.)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Pay was mentioned during phone interview. HR just gave me a print out that showed my pay rate. No discussion about pay at all.

    Greeter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at The Home Depot (Denver, CO) in April 2013.

    Interview

    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

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation, that's what I was offered and I wasn't going to pass on the money.

    Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Home Depot (Denver, CO) in February 2013.

    Interview

    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

    Interview

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at The Home Depot (Denver, CO) in March 2011.

    Interview

    You'll likely get a phone call first from someone in Atlanta (Corp headquarters) and then a series of pretty easy questions. They'll schedule you to come into whatever store you've chosen and you'll have a second interview with a manager. They'll ask even fewer questions, probably 5-10. Walk in, answer 10 questions. As long as you don't come across as a sociopath, you'll have a job. Unless you're in upper management, then being a sociopath is a requirement.

    Interview Questions

    • How often do you get angry? How often do you steal? How often do you punch things? Have you ever committed Felony? Have you ever lied to an employer? Can you do this job without accommodations? How often do you like to be around people?   1 Answer
