    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at The Home Depot (Niagara Falls, NY).

    Interview

    The interview was great. My interviewer was extremely nice & down to earth. Felt more so like I was talking to a friend & not an interviewer. The interview was about an half an hour & I was told that she really liked me & that she would love to see me as apart of their team!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    Applied online. Was contacted for a phone screening three weeks later. Followed up by yet another phone screening and then three yes three face to face interviews. The first with HR then the department head/manager and finally the store manager. Then I never heard from them again. No email thanking me for my time but they had found a better candidate. Nor did they return my call when I followed up with them. I must admit I was rather disappointed with their actions. This was a six week process and then not to respond was in my eyes was poor business practice.

    It was relaxed and thorough, the usual questions were asked about previous job history and how you could apply previous experience to this job. The office space we did the interview in was big enough to be comfortable but not over-bearing.
