    it was easy, they were quick. You apply online, then they call you to schedule an interview for in person. After a 15 min interview, you get a phone call and they tell you whether or not they are hiring you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    Applications had to be submitted online, no in person option which seemed odd but might be status quo. Was not much to the process, the store always needs bodies. They don't pay very well even for the area, so there is alot of turnover.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing stands out, nothing at all, but I'll write your required thirty words so I can finish this I suppose. Is that thirty? Is it thirty now? Nope, not enough. Lets see ... no, nothing stands out. Put in an application, had an interview, got the job.   Answer Question

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Austin, TX) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Interview was a total waste of time. Sat in a circle watching videos and getting some dull presentation while filling out paperwork. Never wanted to take me off the floor to do the actual computer training required for my job, go figure.
