    Interview

    I arrived at the home depot, I waited for about 10 minutes for a manager, the wait wasn't bad at all they had ac in their employee break room and a tv. She came in and greeted me, she was very nice, she asked me about my strengths and weaknesses, she asked about my prior experience and how it compared to their environment, and then she asked how I would resolve a conflict in the work place. The whole interview lasted about 15-20 minutes, she said it would be about 2 weeks before she started making any phone calls, they called me 2 days later and offered me the job.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call asking if I could schedule an interview, so I did. The day of the interview I was sitting in a waiting room like area and waiting two hours to get with someone, the person who interviewed me was alright, she asked about my previous work experience, and talked about Home Depot's history. From then, she told me I'll hear something if they're interesting. Sure enough the next day I got a phone call from someone in their HR telling me...they will not be hiring me, but they like my personality and asked for me to apply again (...Really?)

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at The Home Depot (Baltimore, MD) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I did the application online, got a call back a couple days later about doing a phone interview. The phone interview was rather easy just a few questions about yourself. The rep then told me that she wanted to schedule a interview in person. That interview was fairly easy, just six questions. After that the manager told me that I should be receiving a call back from them within the next couple of days. . . Got the call the next day asking me to come in the day after for a background check. Lets see how this goes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at The Home Depot (Trotwood, OH) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an automated phone call from HR about a week later. Answered a few questions about whether I could perform the basic physical duties of the job, and was transferred to a representative to schedule an in-person interview.

    I arrived at the store for my interview about 10 minutes early and met up with the Assistant Manager at the customer service desk. He lead me to his office at the back of the store where we conducted the interview. It was fairly easy, with questions regarding previous experience and what you bring to The Home Depot. The interview was quick and relaxed but still very professional. I was only in the office for about 15 minutes. At the end of the interview, he explained the next steps in the hiring process and what I should expect. He gave me papers to take to a local Urgent Care for a drug screening, and I had to consent to a background check. Was told if they decide that I am a good fit I would hear back in about a week.

    Interview

    First interview is over the phone then they schedule you for a in person interview. My first in person interview was a Lil nerve wrecking because the man who interviewed me only asked questions and didn't blink or look away from me the entire time. I'm sure I won him over because my next interview was the very next day with the store manager who was AMAZING. Such a sweet down to earth gentleman.

    Interview

    They email you telling you they'll call you for an interview with an automated system. Or you can call their phone number in the email.

    The automated phone interview was super easy, you just pressed numbers to answer the questions and it was very straight forward. Then you're transferred to an actual person. There were about four interview questions which weren't too difficult, but not easy.

    She then set up an appointment for an in person interview
