    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days - interviewed at The Home Depot in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was hired through my college as an intern. I am sure the interview process is very simple with situational questions being asked. Most positions at a Home Depot department store are jobs anyone can perform so the questions asked shouldn't be too difficult to answer

    Interview Questions
    • I did not receive any questions due to being hired directly from school. If I had to guess, a difficult question would pertain to something about how you interacted with a customer and how you delivered exceptional customer service.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Home Depot in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    The application was a simple 20 minute endeavor, and the phone interview came not long after that. They asked me simple questions to verify points made on my application such as the ability to translate Spanish, my math skills, and problem solving techniques. However, it took some finagling to get the in person interview. I went into the store in person to seek out the hiring manager, and from there, she decided to schedule an interview. My interviewer was an ASM named Dan Pryor, who now is another THD location, he was very personable and easygoing, which made me feel comfortable.
