Cashier Interview

Cashier
Porter, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Home Depot in January 2014.

Interview Details – The hiring process is relatively simple. You go online and put in an application. They will send you an email letting you know that they have received your application. After reviewing your application they will send you another email letting you know if they're interested, including a number for you to call to have a phone interview. If the phone interview goes well they will immediately let you know the date and time of your in store interview. The in store interview is not very hard and the interviewers are very polite. They decide if they want you to work for them that day and if they do, they send you off for a drug test. After about a week they get your results and call you back if you come back clean. They then set an appointment for you to come in and fill out your paper work, making you an official Home Depot employee. You begin lots of training videos with four or five hour shift for about five days out of the week until you finish all of your videos. The amount of time you spend in the computer room depends on what department you work in.

Interview Question – They ask a lot of questions for examples of situations that you were a great employee who went above and beyond to help the customer get all the help that they need.   Answer Question

Tool Rental Associate Interview

Tool Rental Associate
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at The Home Depot in March 2011.

Interview Details – Its really not that bad. You meet up with an assistant manager and they ask you some pretty generic questions about your background and skills. The majority of the concern is that you will show up for work and do what you are supposed to do.

Appliance Sales Specialist Interview

Appliance Sales Specialist
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Home Depot in October 2012.

Interview Details – I had an initial phone interview and then an interview with the specialty manager and then the store manager. The entire process took about two weeks and everyone involved was really nice. They really tried to promote this concept of Success Sharing as an additional means of income that occurs twice a year but the payouts for most associates was $100-200 dollars and by no means justified not paying commissions or a higher hourly pay.

Interview Question – There were no difficult questions. They asked about my previous work experience in sales and with appliances. They asked how important customer service was and how I would potentially react with an unruly customer. All the basic retail questions.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They offered me $10 dollars an hour and told me they were not allowed to go higher. I knew I didn't plan on staying long even though I told them I wanted to be there and take advantage of promotion opportunities, so I accepted that dollar amount. After being hired I did discover that some specialist hired @ the same time as me were started at $12. Oh well!

Part Time Cashier Interview

Part Time Cashier
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at The Home Depot in November 2012.

Interview Details – You apply online and then it can take up to almost a month to get a phone interview which you must pass to get and in store interview. They don't tell you on the phone if you have passed or failed the interview and it takes forever, almost a month for me, to get a store call back. If you pass the store interview they will give you information for a drug test and it took them a month to call me back to schedule training and orientation. If you need a job asap DO NOT go for Home Depot, their hire process is very long and you tend to hate it when you get there which waste your time as well.

As far as interview questions go, they ask how you've ever shown great customer services, if you work well when a customer gives you a negative attitude (because they will all day long) and if you give acceptable answers they will hire you. One thing they don't do is discriminate, i do know that much.

Interview Question – The most difficult question they could probably ask you is why you want to work there, just be truthful. Even if you need extra money, that's a fine answer they just want to know that you'll give proper customer services.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There isn't much to negotiate, they pay a little above minimum wage which is good enough when you have no retail experience so I took it rather than left it. It's not a job you'd want to be in long term, the environment tends to grate on your nerves after almost a year of working there.
