This job was not open they called me in to interview. Was informed of this when I got there. Seemed not very 'above bar'. Should have been a bigger red flag, maybe.

    They have 6 specific questions they ask and grade you on basically they are looking for you to say key words or phrases.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Mooresville, NC) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Had an initial phone interview, which was asking "tell me a time when" questions.. passed that and received an in-person interview - this is when things went downhill. It was initially with a female, then she said she would go get her boss... when he came in, he saw that I was a police officer, and said "I see you were security?" I said "A police officer" and he responded with "So, security".... really??.. then he went on to say I didn't have any leadership experience even though my resume clearly stated in bold font that I used to be an assistant manager, a supervisor, and leadership through law enforcement. He was very dismissive and it was clear they already had someone picked out. Will never come to them again.

    This is an overview of an internal promotion interview. Management has to do a very structured interview to start with, then they can ask more in depth questions that are more related to the job and your overall performance as a current associate. After the interview happens management takes anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks to make a decision and revieve cooperate approval.
