    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    The process is forever! They have to interview at least 3 people. The questions are difficult and have to be answered in 3 parts. Most of the time the person interviewing already has someone in mind, for the position making the process a bit unfair. It's very difficult to get an office position unless you know someone.

    It is a joke. They have you answer a ton of questions and then they have a stupid third party company call and drill you a little before you can even talk to anyone at the store location that you applied.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    The interviews were pretty abrupt and only consisted of a few questions. They mainly asked about my personal life more than anything. I was asked why Home Depot and what skills I had that I could use to move up in rank and that was about it. They then did a background check and two days later that went through so they called me back to take a urinalysis which took another week and a half.

    Cashier Position Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Home Depot in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and the process took one week. After filling out an online application, I was called for a phone interview a few days later. After the phone interview was finished, I was scheduled for a face to face interview. The manager who interviewed me was very nice. The questions were typical customer service questions. After the interview was over the manager told me I did excellent and told me to wait to do a second interview in a few minutes. I did the second interview and was offered the position and given the paperwork for the drug test. I went for the drug test, I guess they got my test results back rather quickly because I got called the very next evening by a female manager saying she wants to hire me the next day. I went in and filled out the tax forms and gave my ID and SS card. The hiring manager scheduled me for orientation 2 weeks later and had me sign an invoice so I could be paid for going in that day. She shook my hand and welcomed me aboard. I go to orientation this Sunday afternoon. Overall it was a positive and pleasant experience.

The interview was about 30 minutes. The manager explained why they were hiring and really focused on the company culture and his expectations of his workers. After answering all of his questions, I met another manager, who spoke with me. Once the interview was concluded, an offer was made to me on the spot :). Once I accepted, I was immediately directed to go take a drug test. I was then advised that the background check will take about 3 days and the HR rep will call me to let me know when the training class will start.
