    Kitchen Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    Applied online. Called for a phone screening then a face to face with HR. While interviewing I was told the kitchen designer position was not available but they had another full time position they wanted me to consider and asked me to return a week later to sit down with a department manager. So I arrive, introduce myself and the managers first words were, you have a great resume are you only looking for full time employment. Yes! That was noted on my application full time only as well as my salary requirements. Long story short they offered me a part time position at less than half the salary requested. Actually, a salary I was making out of high school in the late 80s. I was rather annoyed. Why waste my time and theirs. They ask these questions on applications... Why not read it!! If I'm asking 18.50-20 an hour did they really think I'm going to work for $9?????

    Reasons for Declining

    Offer was ridiculously low. Not even something I would try to negotiate higher.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Fort Collins, CO).

    Interview

    The process is pretty quick. You apply online under the careers tab on the website. They called quickly and set up a face to face interview. It's pretty informal. They usually start you off entry level and you have opportunity to advance from there.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    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.
