Garden Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Springfield, VA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Springfield, VA) in February 2010.

Interview

Apply Online, then they call you. It seems pretty random, a little unorganized. They have an independent company doing initial hiring, then they call you in to the store they're hiring for. A department head or assistant manager then does the interview. They read off standard interview questions and record your answers. Very few people don't get hired especially in the spring hiring process.

Negotiation

Little negotiations, they typically hire around base pay unless background is extensive.

    The application and interview process was easy and straightforward. There is a two stage interview process to ensure good fit for the company and position. A drug test and background check was necessary for employment.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot in October 2014.

    Interview

    First I was called by their automated system and I was given a preliminary interview in which everything I said was typed and most likely sent to the location. Then I went in for my first interview with one of the Asst Managers. The interview was very structured and every potential hire are skied the questions. I was then called for an interview with the store manager. I was asked why I wanted to work at The Home Depot and then we began discussing pay, my position, and orientation. The interview with the store manager really wasn't much of an interview, it was more of letting me know that I got the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Shawnee, KS) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called about a week after doing so. The HR Center of Home Depot called me and set up the interview that happened maybe two days later. I waited a while for the manager to finally finish with other interviews before he finally called me in. In all, I would say that the interview lasted thirty minutes or so. Although I felt pretty nervous at first, the manager made me feel right at home and we were able to have a relaxed conversation. After the interview, I was sent to the HR department where I was informed I had the job.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult part of the interview was when he asked me why I had left my former employer. I had conflicts with my former manager and so it was awkward trying to explain - as politely as I could - why I left my old job.   Answer Question

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

    Interview

    Very Corporate. They ask a lot of questions and they're just read to you by other associates. It's not too intimidating other than they often hire in bulk so you sit in a room with a bunch of people waiting to be called in for you interview. They're not very good with scheduling.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Stafford, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I had a brief phone interview and then had a brief face to face interview. It wasn't very long, just one of those interviews where they are just looking to get a feel of the type of person you are and see how you'll fit in at the store.
