    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.

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    I completed an online application with all of the standard questions like, "What hours are you available?" and "Are you able to work weekends?" You also select what departments you would like to be considered for and which stores in your area you would want to work. About a week later I received a phone call about an opening in the Plumbing Dept. at one of the stores that I chose. I went for an in person interview. The store manager and the head plumbing associate conducted the interview. They asked several behavioral type questions and the a few plumbing related questions. They then thanked me for coming in and said that they had one more person to interview and that someone would call me either way to tell me if I got the job or not. eended up hiring

    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.

    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.
