    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HD Supply (Atlanta, GA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Fill out an online application to a recruiter. Had a phone interview with the recruiter, Passed.

    I got an email to have a phone interview with HD Supply. He asked me questions like... what lights do you use? What's your favorite format? At the end of the interview he told me that I was the best they had interviewed yet.

    Waited a few days and got an email requesting a second interview. After a week of emails, keeping me posted on what week they will be doing in-person interviews. I was told to come in on Thursday May 26. They emailed me who all would be in the interview. They also requested 5 references to fill out a 29 question survey on me ( you can wait to see how the interview went before sending out survey). I study all utube videos on the company, glassdoor and study the interview questions.

    In the interview all the questions were about 6-7 behavioral questions. No technical question and no test. I did bring my photography and they just passed the photography books around. Everyone was very nice, but also hard to read. The interview was 1 hour long.

    I waited 3 days and heard from my recruiter they went with a internal candidate referral. The whole process took a month. Very sad I really wanted the job......

    Accounting Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at HD Supply (Atlanta, GA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Started by going through 4 separate phone interviews on different days: HR, Hiring Manager, Panel interview with 3 peers, and interview with one direct report to the position. Heavy behavioral interview questions and very repetitive with same questions asked multiple times by different people. After phone interviews, an on site interview was scheduled Prior to the interview I received an email from hr asking me to get 5 references to do a 360 degree type questionnaire on me. They did not mention this in advance as being part of the interview process. They make it sound in the email that if you do't do it you will not go forward in the interview process. I received multiple follow up emails, almost daily and even over the weekend, from HR until it was completed. The on-site interview was approximately 6 hours. One of the direct reports took me to lunch. Talked to many of the same people as on phone interviews and again mostly behavioral questions and repetitive in nature. I left the interview and never heard another word back from this company in 2 months. I even followed up with HR guy via email. Very disrespectful of the candidate. Especially after wasting 5 of your references time in completing the 360. The 360 is completed by reference over web site. It is beyond what most references are typically expecting to provide and can be awkward.

    Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at HD Supply (Atlanta, GA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, and was emailed about a week later to conduct a phone interview. After i passed the phone interview I had to submit an online reference to send to 5 professional and personal references where they had to answer a series of questions about me. Then I was selected to conduct a 2 hour, face to face interview with the recruiting team, to include some over the phone with the West Coast recruiters. After my interview i sent a thank you email to the team and have heard NOTHING. I even emailed the lead recruiter and she still has not responded and it has been over a month since my interview. I think it would be common courtesy to at least respond with a no thank you, or we are still in the process of our selections. They even reposted the position which i took as a "no thank you", but human decency would to at least send out an automated "thank you but no thank you". This has left a very bad impression on this company and I'm not sure I would want to work for a company that can't even be courteous to respond within a month.

    Vice President Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at HD Supply (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    For such a high level position the interview was quite limited. It consisted of hour long sessions with the hiring manager and a HR rep. The questions were very vanilla especially given I was an internal candidate. I know the process did get more in depth further down for those who made the subsequent cut. They involved meeting with senior leaders who were in some cases fairly rough.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HD Supply (Atlanta, GA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Multiple interviews which could have been better streamlined. Met with three different levels of management on three different interview days. The whole process seemed unorganized and all of the interviews could have been done all on the same visit had it been planned better. However, the days/times were flexible so it worked out fine.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HD Supply (Norcross, GA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I applied online and after about a week received a call to set up a phone screen. The same HR rep from corporate called back later and conducted the phone screen...."Why are you leaving current job?" "What relevant experience?" "How often is it ok to call in sick?" etc.
    Then I received a call several days later for a face to face with the asst mgr. This consisted of him asking the same questions and filling in answers on a form as well as some basic question and answer.
    He said the mgr would review and call people back in the next week.
    Got a call the next week and set up interview for the following morning. Talked with the manager a little about background and experience went over my resume then took a tour of the warehouse and he explained the job. At this point the interview was more of an attempt to get me to loosen up a little I think and see how I would fit in. We talked a little and I was feeling nervous but asking questions and trying to picture how the job would work. Eventually he said that he had one more interview and that I would probably get a call the next day to finish up.
    Haven't heard from them since then.
