    Interview

    I applied on line and followed up. Things have changed in 9 years. I think now a days, someone calls you from the corp office in Atlanta, GA. They choose the location they want to hire you at, even if its not the closest location to your home. there is a drug test you must pass.

    Interview

    First I applied online and then three months later I got an email the day my application was expiring explaining a phone interview. Called them for my interview by the number directed on the email. Then I talked with the operator and once I was done being asked a few questions, she set up a store interview. Well when I first went to the store I had to wait since the store manager was conducting another interview. Once I went in the store manager introduced himself, very polite and straight forward. We talked about ourselves and then he started asking me questions about. Why home depot and what experience I could apply to the work environment. After that I knew I had originally applied for another position and he told me he wanted to place me in appliance specialist instead with highest entry pay since my attitude and knowledge seemed to be perfect for the position. It went very well and he said congratulations we will see you soon.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Sequim, WA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I came in and they asked the standard questions. What was the hardest thing you've done? Describe how you handled a bad situation? Then we had a friendly conversation about something random like the weather and I was out of there in less than 15 minutes.

    In all honesty it was one of the easiest interviews I have ever done, and I work in HR now (for a different company). If you are going in for an interview just have some basic knowledge of household care and be extremely upbeat and friendly. They love that. I went in knowing nothing about home improvement, I knew nothing about nails, screws, toilets, appliances, or anything to do with home depot yet I got a job offer over the others. I was friendly and had a big ol smile on my face and I did just fine. They'll teach you the rest!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Lawrence, KS) in August 2013.

    Interview

    They call you first and you answer automated questions, then they will follow up with a person calling you asking you a few questions. But its really weird because its contracted out so the people asking questions dont have a vested interest. Then you will go in for a interview and they will ask you general questions and work history.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I wasnt really interested in negotiating because its just a part time job while im in school.

    Appliance Sales Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Houston, TX) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview and then an interview with the specialty manager and then the store manager. The entire process took about two weeks and everyone involved was really nice. They really tried to promote this concept of Success Sharing as an additional means of income that occurs twice a year but the payouts for most associates was $100-200 dollars and by no means justified not paying commissions or a higher hourly pay.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions. They asked about my previous work experience in sales and with appliances. They asked how important customer service was and how I would potentially react with an unruly customer. All the basic retail questions.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They offered me $10 dollars an hour and told me they were not allowed to go higher. I knew I didn't plan on staying long even though I told them I wanted to be there and take advantage of promotion opportunities, so I accepted that dollar amount. After being hired I did discover that some specialist hired @ the same time as me were started at $12. Oh well!
