    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Home Goods (Granada Hills, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Super easy, I was called in to come for an interview the next day after applying and calling the manager to make sure they got my application. The longest part was waiting for them to tell me if I got the job or not. You have to call them multiple times to check in.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Home Goods.

    Interview

    Very quick and easy. It was my first time applying for a job and my first interview ever. It only took about 10 minutes. I followed up after a couple days and they said they needed to check references (which they really did. If you have no real job experience like I did, have some teachers that know you well be your references.) and a few days later I got the job. The manager asked very easy, typical interview questions, pretty much read them off a script. The whole process from the day I turned in my application and resume to the day I started working took about 2 weeks.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Home Goods.

    Interview

    Easy, simple, couple questions about strengths/weaknesses, and about the company. The manager was nice, but it took a while to get an interview I called back many times about my application to get in touch with the hiring manager

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Home Goods (Dunwoody, GA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    40 min interview where Loss Prevention Manager spent most of the time talking about himself and how he got to his position. Got distinct impression he wasn't interested in hiring me. Overall impression is he wants young people in their twenties and not willing to hire those older.

    Team Member Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Home Goods (Elk Grove, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I sat down with the assistant manager and she asked me very basic questions and had me talk about myself. I told her about graduating high school and that I got good grades throughout my life, and talked about extracurricular things I did outside of school. It went really smoothly and there was no reason to be nervous at all. Later, I had a second interview with the other assistant manager who asked me nearly identical questions. It was a little bit more difficult because she wasn't quite as nice or understanding to me, but overall it was not difficult and went really well.
