    I applied online – interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    What a mess - Vets stay away
    I came in for an assistant manager position that was advertised on the main home depot corporate site as well as locally. The first time I arrived the manager did not even show up. I rescheduled for another interview and the manager told me that the job was already filled and tried to get me some slightly above minimum wage job. Home Depot does not value education or leadership experience.

    Veterans stay away! It is not veteran friendly unless you are looking for a minimum wage job. Look at the yearly turnover. Its staggering and very indicative of how they have evolved. There are no former electricians, plumbers, carpenters in their ranks and you surely do not need to be low balled into this company if you are coming out of the military. Go else where and prosper!

    Interview Questions

Then I was given a few minutes to ask questions, and after that I was asked a few questions.

    Interview

    Fast she barely asked any questions. She never lookex up from her paper and barely acknowledged my presence. After the interview, she said I should walk around the store and learn where every thing is. I waited 3 weeks and never heard any thing back from them. Very unprofessional in my opinion.
