    I think it's a phone interview first from an individual from Atlanta corporate office, then an in person interview with the asset protection manager. Store HR called me after the offer to stop a time to complete paper work, and drug screening appointment

    I got a phone call couple days after i applied online. Phone interview was first, where they ask if you are still interested in the position. Then the set up a face to face interview at the store. There, the interview was very easy. Asked simple questions. They said welcome aboard. Then i had to fill out this information card on the computer. The hiring lady gave me papers to take to Quest diagnostic for a drug test. About a week after that i got a call for orientation.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    You get a call for a phone interview if you don't pick up they send you a email saying they missed you and send you all the info you need to complete the phone interview. If you pass it they later send you another email letting you know when your in-person interview will be at. Pretty simple just prepare in advance review normal interview questions so you can sound confident.

    Interview process was very easy, arrived there early at 2:45pm. My interview was at 3, I was called in 17min after 3. 2 department managers interviewed me at first that interview took about 10min, then waited a second and the store manager interviewed me, reviewed the basic interview questions with me and made me an offer of $10.50 for the garden sales associate. Did the drug screen the next day and I'm still waiting on them to call me, might take 2 week's.

    Interesting that the first interviewer was a computer. I was then transfered to a person who asked me more questions. She then set me up with an in person interview. Wish me luck, I go into the store for my in person interview this coming Tuesday.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at The Home Depot in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I was basically told I wasn't going to be hired for the positions in paint or flooring that I had interviewed for. I was told I was being offered the position of "Project Specialist". A TOTALLY different kind of job then I was looking to get, but yet they only offered me $10/hr, which is much better than the $8.50/hr I make as a part time cashier.
