    Interview Details

    Don't miss the interview, as it is nearly impossible to reschedule another one. Once at the interview, it is fairly easy going as long as your confident in your abilities. They'll ask the standard interview questions, and you'll give the standard interview answers, and you'll start shortly afterward. Good luck and be confident. Remember, if you've got the interview, they're already interested in you.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    Honestly the only way to really get an interview is to know someone in the store you are applying to. I applied 5 times in 2 years and never got an interview even though I was clearly over qualified for the position I was applying for.

    Interview Details

    You apply for any job at THD online. If they want to see you you are then called down for an interview with an assistant manager or store manager. There is another application to fill out. At that time they may decide to offer you a job. Be sure to negotiate the best salary they will accept at the time since your raises are small at THD (usually a quarter a year (or fifty cents if you are a SUPER employee!))

    Interview Questions
    • Have you ever lied to a customer or done anything dishonest in the course of business?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I asked for a certain dollar figure and explained I deserved it. They countered with their best offer. (it was higher than that position usually started at, Note: They do not have a standard scale. Pay is negotiated with certain guidelines.

    I applied online – interviewed at The Home Depot in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The Home Depot's online application process is for the most part easy to navigate. There is a specific sections for veterans which was nice. After submitting my application I was contacted about 2 months later for a phone interview. The lady conducting the interview seemed bored with her job and asked me questions in this monotone voice that was putting me to sleep! I must have done well because I was selected for an interview in the store tomorrow morning. I'll update the rest of the process after that interview.
