Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

Interview

I applied and received a phone call for a phone interview the following day. Then set up a in person interview at the store. The wait wasn't long. I interview with one of the managers and after the interview filled out the W2 forms and all that paper work. They were really understanding that I needed two weeks before being fully committed to the job.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    Automated Phone, Regular phone, in-person, in-person. The interview process was pretty long and drawn out for how they just plop you in front of a computer for training and you have no idea what is happening otherwise. I didn't know anything other than how to clock-in and out and felt like I could've been locked in bc I worked until late and didn't know anything else.

    Interview

    The interviewer asked about my experience in customer service. There was a background check and a drug test. The interview however was informal. The people seemed courteous and I later determined that they were genuine. The management was often very busy, but I did meet with the store manager while interviewing.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Amherst, NY) in February 2012.

    Interview

    First you apply online. It did not take very long before I got a computer generated phone call, saying that they wanted to interview me over the phone. I called them back, and they interviewed me (I think it was from Corporate, because they read from a sheet asking me questions). The questions consisted of mostly customer service, and how you would react to stressful situations, etc. Remember...the customer comes first, and no matter how stressed out you may be, you cannot show that to the customer. You must help them as much as possible, and show them kindness and respect. If you cannot answer their question(s), you need to find someone who can. Customer satisfaction comes first with any retail position. Safety is way up on the list as well. Basically...the interview is common sense on how you should treat any other human being. The Golden Rule....do unto others as you would like them to do unto you. After I answered all of the questions, they told me about the position they had just interviewed me for, then they told me a dollar amount per hour that the position paid. They asked if it was acceptable. I said...yes. Then they set me up with an in-store interview. The in-store interview (which may or may not be at the store you will actually be working for), went pretty much the same. A few customer service questions, safety questions, and "what would you do in this situation" questions.

    Interview Questions

    • How did you handle a customer when you were very stressed out about completing other tasks put upon you, that had to be completed quickly.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was not able to negotiate. I got the impression that it would not be acceptable to do so, but I could be wrong. I think I would try to negotiate, if I had it to do over again.
