    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Home Depot (Houston, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was brief. I interviewed with in store HR on a Tuesday and Thursday I interviewed with the night time manager. The first interview was very generic. The second was more about the job. Both interviews were short and very general. The first interview was made up of personality questions about problem solving, while the second interview (conducted at night) was about the job requirements and the working environment. I would say they were very professional and thorough.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot (Houston, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied, was interviewed by someone in Atlanta via phone, and was then called in for an in-store interview. The phone-based one was very straightforward about if I would be okay with flexible hours, etc. The in-store one was perfunctory - I passed by not wearing a T-shirt to the interview.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, that'd require talking to someone in Atlanta, GA.
