Interview Details

You get a call for a phone interview if you don't pick up they send you a email saying they missed you and send you all the info you need to complete the phone interview. If you pass it they later send you another email letting you know when your in-person interview will be at. Pretty simple just prepare in advance review normal interview questions so you can sound confident.

    I applied online – interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    I applied approximately three weeks before I was called in for an interview. Before I went in for the interview I had to go through a screening process which I did over the phone, after I was done with the screening stage the person on the phone told me that my interview would be Friday. I went to the interview and was offered a position as a part time lumber sales associate.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Home Depot in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very easy and simple. I applied on and received an automated voice call from there headquarters in Atlanta to set up an in store interview at the location I was applying too. When I went to the store they were a little late for my interview. The interview was basic and mostly behavioral questions and customer service questions. Basically they asked what you would do in different situations for the customer.

    Interview Details

    went in for an interview. Answered typical interview questions tell me about a time you provided customer service, tell me about a time you had to work under pressure, blah blah blah. long story short he told me he liked me but they wasn't doing 2nd interviews anymore that day and that he would call me to come in for a 2nd interview. this was a month & a half ago and I still haven't received a call. Applied again last week got called in for a interview for Wednesday at 8AM. it was way to early for me so I was never going. The day of the interview at 7:59AM I receive a call saying the position has been filled. VERY Unprofessional ! Don't bother applying here.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    The interview was conducted by the Assistant Store Manager in a small cluttered office. The interviewer was very pleasant and straightforward in his approach. He had a copy of my online application and a copy of my current resume. He noted that Home Depot was ONLY hiring part-time employees. In fact he stated that all new hires were part-time and must be available to work all shifts and weekends. Questions asked of me were very few.

      Would you be available to work weekends?
