    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at The Home Depot in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Filled out online app on a Thurs, was emailed Friday to contact Retail staffing center for more questions. I called Vs waiting for them to contact me. Was a automated system to begin with once you answer those questions (I assume the way they are looking for you to) you are transferred to a "Live" phone interviewer.

    Went through a series of questions (This is the starting pay, Have transportation, these are the hours etc) once this section ended asked me if I had any questions. Asked my question which caught them off guard and they stumbled their way through the answer.

    Has been close to a week with no further communication to date.

    Merchandising Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at The Home Depot in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    It took two months from application for open job, to get a call back from an automated contract employment company. They set up an interview with a store manager and I drove the one hour to the interview location and met. They had paperwork that showed not only my application, but what looked like SS deposits that listed small self employed jobs that I claimed the income for, but didn't list on my resume because they were small self jobs (no employer). Obviously employers use tech to get every possible bit of info, which opens up the possibility for huge errors, if you've ever checked your credit report and found a ton of junk, or googled yourself and found a lot of people with your name the same. They said everything looked good- I'd get a call for a training start in about 2 weeks. (this was a night job stocking shelves- wanted the job for extra cash.) They thought I was a little "sophisticated" for the job; must be their term for overqualified. What qualifications are for stocking shelves? Never heard back, even from the automated call center. Eventually got an email asking if I wanted to keep my resume active. Been 3 months.

    • Nothing difficult. Asked if I could operate technical equipment (hand held bar code reader/printer) because they got a lot of elderly applicants that were stymied.   View Answer

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview started as automated about times I could be available, etc. Seems someone was listening to my answers and once you answer these 6-7 questions correctly then a human takes over and asks about 8 more questions. It's been a week now and he said could take two or more weeks to hear back. I'm waiting for a response from them and I hope it's not a Dear John letter.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at The Home Depot in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    it was one of the best interview process's I ever had. got in 15 minutes early, had a great conversation with the trainees while waiting and went in for the interview. there were two people in the room; the hiring manager and the store manager. they were relaxed and very positive. I felt a good vibe from the start. they asked me around 5 real easy questions and ended the interview with a good joke and an offer.

     the most important thing is to smile a lot and laugh if somethings funny. good vibes go a long way. ohh and relax.

    Applied online through their website & was surprised by the prompt return of interest.
    There automated system had me answer a few general questions about my availability and over all interests in the job description.

    This lead to the in person interview, It was all pretty quick & orderly; I didnt have a lot of confidence in the online/automated system at first, but over all no complaints

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Home Depot in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    After applying online, it took about two to two and a half weeks for them to contact me. They sent a detailed email telling me that they reviewed my application and that the staffing center (in ATL, GA) would call me for a phone interview. Surprisingly, I received a call from them 10 minutes later. The woman conducting the interview was very down to earth and made it extremely easy to talk to her. As soon as the interview was over she immediately set a 1:1 interview in the store which I applied. That interview was extremely easy as well. They mainly focus on problem solving skills and customer service. By the environment of the store, I could automatically tell what they were looking for. After my interview, the interviewer took the results to his SM (store manager) and they gave me the job on the spot.

    They pay based on retail experience; you don't need to know much about your required position because they put you through training once you start. I'd also advise that you be ready to go take a drug test right after. They give you 48 hours to return your results, which really means 24 hours since they count the interview date. The company overall seemed great, no problems what so ever!
