    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Lancaster, TX) in January 2015.

    Interview

    They walk you in, often times are not ready, or are running late. They might have you wait for 15mins, and bring you into the office and from there simple questions and small talk. They will try to low-ball you on the pay, but just ask politely if they can get you to maybe **$ ideal number depending on what you want. I was asked to come on at 9.00$ as an associate and I ended up as a Appliance Sales Associate which netted me 3$+ at 12.00/Hourly.

    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!
