    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Home Depot (New Rochelle, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I walked into the break room with 3 other people waiting to get interviewed. Two other people joined in after me. My interview was for 4:30 and others were for 5. I was the last one to get interviewed. I got interview by a manager, she asked 4-6 questions. Then, she told me that the HR will interview me. However, she put me back into the breakroom. I waited in that room for at least 30 minutes. Then when my name was called, I had to do a drug test and background test. Then after that was over, I was done. As I was leaving, a girl who I talked to before the whole interview process told me how she got her uniform, locker and so on already. I was super confused and went back cause I thought I had to stay to get interviewed by the HR. I was unable to find anyone so I left (I was late as heck to class) Then afterwards I called and ask was I supposed to stay. Someone explained to me that if they like your application they will do everything the first day and that if they do one interview, then a drug test, you didn't get the job. The interview process is a manager will interview you, then the HR, then you will be drug and have a background check. Finally, you will get your uniform and a locker. Thanks for nearly 3 hours of my life.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Claymont, DE) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed at the Claymont, DE location on 2/23/2017. I arrived at 1:53 pm for a 2:00 pm interview. I waited until after 2:20 pm for the interview to start with a manager who I cannot name but is a common white male name. During the interview he answered his ringing phone numerous times. One phone call was from another person who interviewed and wanted to know why they did not get the job. Finally, after one phone call, he stated he would call me without giving me the chance to ask questions. I asked him what are the qualifications and what reasons would they not hire me. He stated "you are not qualified" I asked him what makes me unqualified. And he actually stated, "I just don't want to hire you". This mad me feel very disrespected and angry so I begin to ask him why schedule me out here if you weren't serious about hiring me. I did use the words "that's why you work in a store you (f word with ing) loser". I have worked with multiple companies including Wal-Mart, Best Buy, CVS, and UPS. If I was unqualified they should have never called me in for a interview. The manager was a White man with Middle Eastern type hairy arms. I am a caramel color Black man. I intended to stay for a few months. I will be a Lyft Driver and I suggest everyone work for similar courier and driving jobs. Or just go to school for a rewarding career.

    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. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Dover, NH) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very strange, I got an interview set up over the phone by a robot. They were doing a hiring event which I did not like! I feel that they just do this to help with the cumbersome of employees that want to join, however it felt like they didn't really care in the interview. The interview was about an hour and there was an unexpected drug test (which I don't mind and passed) but it would of been nice to know before going into the job interview because some may not want that.
