    Specialty Department Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    Fairly painless. They ask predetermined questions from the company, and write down your answer as you talk.
    The more specific you are during the questions the better you will do. If you can not think of a specific example, describe how you would handle the situation and always try to tie it back to the companies values of customer service, in-stock and store appearance. Also add in how you would inquire into the problem, respect the issue/person, solve the issue, and thank.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot (Omaha, NE) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was called by a retail staffing center located in Georgia. I answered a few of the standard "Tell me about a time when you... " questions over the phone. An automated system called me again later to set up an in person interview at the store. There was no interaction with a live person that time.

    The in store interview was short and positive. The HR manager asked me a few more of the same style questions, and told me that the online test had matched me to a few possible positions. He was very friendly, and kept up great communication. A few days later, precisely in the time frame he had promised, I was called again, this time with an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Several were the "Tell me about a time when you... " or "Describe a situation where you had to... " variety questions. There was also a role play example where I was asked to show how I would aid a customer in the aisles, with the HR manager playing the role of a customer.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at The Home Depot (Baton Rouge, LA).

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call asking if I could schedule an interview, so I did. The day of the interview I was sitting in a waiting room like area and waiting two hours to get with someone, the person who interviewed me was alright, she asked about my previous work experience, and talked about Home Depot's history. From then, she told me I'll hear something if they're interesting. Sure enough the next day I got a phone call from someone in their HR telling me...they will not be hiring me, but they like my personality and asked for me to apply again (...Really?)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at The Home Depot (Baltimore, MD) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I did the application online, got a call back a couple days later about doing a phone interview. The phone interview was rather easy just a few questions about yourself. The rep then told me that she wanted to schedule a interview in person. That interview was fairly easy, just six questions. After that the manager told me that I should be receiving a call back from them within the next couple of days. . . Got the call the next day asking me to come in the day after for a background check. Lets see how this goes.
