    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    Very straight forward. I applied online and a few weeks later got a phone call. I answered some background checks administered by a computer. I was then scheduled for an in-person interview. This interview was also very straight forward. Alot of the questions asked were similar to the ones people have posted on here. Review this site and you will do fine.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    I feel the interview process to be a part time sales associate to be a bit overkill for such a low wage job: personality tests. phone interview test questions, personality test (which seem creepy and questionable). in person interview seemed normal though they could have specified in the ad that you HAVE to work on the weekend.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    Complete an on-line application and an e-mail response with your interview date, time, and place. The interview was scheduled for 30 mintues with 4-5 interviewers (Office Managers and District Manager) and 3 applicants. Each applicant received 1 question from each interviewer and it may be a repeat question. The questions were situational, like (1) Have you ever had a communication problem? if so, how did you solve it?.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about your past work experiences.
      There was no negotiation. I would advise others to take the position to be able to gain the necessary skills and experience to either move up within the company or to move on to other companies.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    Did online application and got email 2 weeks later telling me I will receive a call. Phone interview was 3 questions and then I was scheduled for an in person interview. The manager interviewing me asked questions mostly about past experiences- not too difficult. Just make sure to prepare. After, they extended me a job offer and gave me drug test form to fill out. It took 3 weeks until they called to schedule an orientation. Overall positive experience. Don't panic if you don't hear from them for several weeks, it usually takes them awhile to call you back.

    Online application was followed by a call from a central employment office (based in Georgia I think).

Dress was business casual, Met with a manager, entire interview took about 20 minutes, I was offered the job and handed paperwork to go take a drug test. About a week later, I hadn't heard anything about starting so I called and got put on the schedule for the next week.

    MET Team Interview

    Interview Details

    Ask you a lot of questions based on scenarios, if you've taken the test on the website, be prepared to take it again in person. It wasn't too bad but I didn't even know what to wear and came in business clothes and really could have just worn jeans and a t-shirt. Some of the management is nice, others not so much.

    Interview Questions
    • They ask you about certain areas in the store and how you might handle a situation, if you have no experience in hardware, PPE or anything else like that you won't have a clue how to answer the questions.   Answer Question
