    Sales Associate - Flooring and Walls Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at The Home Depot in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got a call from their call center who was conducting the initial interview. The person was real nice but the questions were somewhat generic at first. I got the feeling that this initial interview could not give them a true picture of my abilities or personality. I also felt the interviewer was not well versed in her job. She was trying to type my responses. She kept reading them back and I had to keep editing them with her. This particular part of the process will probably close doors on some really good people.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was - " give us an example of a difficult situation you have been in with a customer and how you were able to satisfy that customer."   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at The Home Depot in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initially applied online and received a email from headquarters telling me to call a number for a screening interview/call. After that I was offered a in store interview. Basic questions, all pertaining to customer service. Easy interview, now waiting for a call back to interview w/ the store manager.
    *update* I was called back for a interview w/ the store manager after 2 days. This interview was a lot shorter (5mins) and was really just manager verifying I was the right pick. Was asked to tell him about myself, and why I want to work there. Keep it customer service related. If you nail the first interview, the job is pretty much yours. Just make a good impression in the 2nd.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by phone first to conduct an over the phone interview. Was asked scenario questions regarding past experience as a cashier or how to solve a problem. Once the phone interview was done I was told that if I qualified, I would be hearing from them for a face to face interview. I was called few days later to attend the interview at the store where I applied. The interview was very relaxed. The manager who interviewed me was very nice. I was asked just like 4 question scenarios about things that would happen while being a cashier. I was offered the position on the spot and I accepted it.
