I applied online - interviewed at The Home Depot in July 2014.

Interview Details – First, I applied online.

How did you handle it?' and two other similar questions. The representative was impressed enough and set up an in-store interview for me promptly.

Head Cashier Interview

Head Cashier

I applied online - interviewed at The Home Depot in October 2012.

Interview Details – It was very smooth, nice and friendly, There was some brief questions asked and basically a feel to see if you align with the company, but overall nice. You are interviewed by usually the department head, the assistant manager of that unit and then the store manager. they all are pretty is going but themanager was a little blah. i guess he is more on the business end of things.

Interview Question – I do not think any question was difficult. I idea is to be honest about your skills, identify if you are a people person and move forward from there.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation but was told about employee evalutions and how that would assist with an employee annual raise.
