    Current employees would get selected to go through a RMA or a Retail Management Assesment. At the time, the RMA consisted of a test and an interview. The test was a 3 parter that covered Financials, Human Resources, and Customer Service. The interview was conducted afterwards with 1-2 members of management usually being Store Managers or District Managers with an occasional Human Resource Manager as well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Salem, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter, answered some questions, took 2 surveys and was contacted 2 days later by the recruiter to set up and interview. For the interview the Market manager wasn't there, store manager was nice and asked the typical packet of questions looking for the typical 5 point answers. Was told that he wanted to make a decision that day and had 2 more interviews, never heard back either way even after contacting the recruiter.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at The Home Depot in May 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process took a long time but was deffinetly rewarding in the end. On average, people interview with three different stores to find a good fit. Sometimes multiple store managers will interview you at once, like a panel.

    What a mess - Vets stay away
    I came in for an assistant manager position that was advertised on the main home depot corporate site as well as locally. The first time I arrived the manager did not even show up. I rescheduled for another interview and the manager told me that the job was already filled and tried to get me some slightly above minimum wage job. Home Depot does not value education or leadership experience.

    Veterans stay away! It is not veteran friendly unless you are looking for a minimum wage job. Look at the yearly turnover. Its staggering and very indicative of how they have evolved. There are no former electricians, plumbers, carpenters in their ranks and you surely do not need to be low balled into this company if you are coming out of the military. Go else where and prosper!

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were juvenile and hardly worth mentioning. More time was spent talking about the poor hours and how hard it is on the family.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Most questions for hourly associates are specific to customer service. Generally interviewees have no experience of the industry and this is okay. As long as you have customer service skills, Home Depot will hire you.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions regarding parts of the business, which new associates generally know nothing about. If you've never worked in construction or a related retailer, during the interview use a "what if" scenario to help you answer the question.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at The Home Depot in June 2014.

    Interview

    Initial RMA questions were pretty general, but finished with a roleplay that was specific. Make sure that you sell yourself and talk. I did not talk enough about myself, so the interview did not go that well. The second phase of a FIT interview with the Store Manager went better, but you still need to convince them that you are the best candidate for the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing very difficult, just make sure that you sell yourself.   Answer Question
