IT Developer II Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Home Depot in February 2014.
Interview Details – Two short phone screenings and a Skype interview. It was very brief and not too technical. The interviewers wanted to get an idea of my background and experience so they asked questions related to past experience. I had the impression that I would be developing, but it was more of a support role in which I would not be programming.
Interview Question – Nothing too out of the ordinary. Fairly basic questions such as explain some of the points made on your resume and Tell me about yourself. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – The job sounded too similar to what I was doing and I felt as though I wouldn't be advancing.
IT Developer II Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at The Home Depot in November 2013.
Interview Details – I was referred by an employee who sent my email and résumé to a THD recruiter. She called me, inquired about my needs, and set up a phone interview with a future teammate. That future teammate called soon after, asking basic questions about the languages I would be using and how to apply basic concepts.
I was asked to come on site, and attended a 3 person panel interview. Most of the questions were easy, and my future manager was mostly just telling me how life would be like at THD. I was taken down to the lobby and told my salary would be no problem.
I received an offer, however the position I was interviewing for was a senior position. My manager thought I was more fit for an IT Developer 2 position, so he created a new position for the team for me. I was told to wait 2 weeks before I could get confirmation that I had the job because of a company policy regarding a new position.
After two weeks, I got my offer letter and accepted the job.
Interview Question – What is event bubbling? View Answer
Negotiation Details – No negotiation.
IT Developer II Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at The Home Depot.
Interview Details – I had an overall good experience in the entire process. I was initially contacted for a phone interview for an assessment of my technical skills. For the phone interview, I met with a lead and a senior developer. The interview went pretty well. About a week later I got a call back for an in person interview. The in person interview was with the Project manager and another manager. This was more of a general interview.
Interview Question – Name a time when you encountered a difficult situation and how did you handle it? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Distance from home was too far, Out of pocket cost of benefits was much higher than that of my current position, Limited PTO.
