    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    I did a first interview. It was 6 questions that they said they ask everyone and it only took about 10 minutes. They said they would call me in for a second interview. The manager interviewing me didn't seem to realize I had an interview that day (corporate calls you to schedule the interview), so she wasn't super prepared. It didn't appear she had looked at my resume or application because she seemed surprised at my retail experience. I don't blame her, I imagine there was a communication breakdown somewhere since corporate schedules all the first interviews.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Aurora, IL).

    Interview

    The interview was fairly informal. I first spoke to one of the assistant managers, then the human resource director and finally the store manager. During the interview I was asked a series of questions and because of my answers and experience the manager thought that I was capable of more responsibility. The manager offered me a head cashier position with the potential to become an assistant manager.

    Interview Questions

    • One question that seems to get asked in all interviews is "where do you see yourself five years from now?" I was in the process of getting my BA in Legal Studies so I was not sure how I should answer that question. I was honest and it had no effect on me getting hired.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Poplar Bluff, MO).

    Interview

    Met with the Human Resource supervisor to discuss pay and scheduling. Also talked about what to expect and other compensation if applicable and drug testing schedule. Then, the same day met with the manager for interview. It was really simple and didn't ask for too much. Just the basic inquiry about previous employments if there were any. After that was I went to see HR again and gave me my number to clock in for orientation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Clovis, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied in August 2016 and didn't hear back until October 2016.
    They sent me twice an email letting me know that there will be a phone call for me, but I never got one.
    Then some random day I received an automated phone call an was scheduled for an interview.
    It was too easy.
    I think they may have been short staffed and needed some quickly. I got interviewed within 5-8 minutes and got the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted my application and received an email exactly a week later saying that I would get a call from the staffing center. I waited a few days but never received a call so I called the number provided to me. During the call I answered a few simple questions like whether or not I was still interested. I also set up a date for the interview (was given two options) I chose the one almost two weeks later (wouldn't recommend) I arrived 30 minutes early to my interview. The interviewer was impressed by it which was good. The overall interview took about 30 minutes and he asked around 5 basic interview questions (you can find ones like them online) He was impressed with me and really loved my bubbly personality and scheduled me for a second interview with the store Manager 2 days later. I believe when offered a second interview you know you've got the job. Again, I was asked about previous work experience and availability and was given a quick rundown of responsibilities. Afterwards I met with another manager for a background check and drug test. Overall the process was quick and easy going. All staff were very friendly and chatty. After 3 days the results were in and I was offered the job!
