    I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Great, Easy, Funny.
    You apply online, the process might take a few months to get a call from Atlanta (HQ) when you do they will schedule you a in person interview with a manager at your convience.
    The manager was very professional he explained every detail about my role including what day I would begin training.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me about recent job experience, when you are asked to take a drug test or go for a drug test on the day of the interview that means you got it! It is up to you to pass the drug test to start the job right away. If you don't get asked for a drug test on the spot chances are you didn't get the job and thats ok because you can always apply to a different location and be better prepared next time!   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    I applied online and then I was called after some time had passed (week to a month, don't remember). They asked me a series of pre-interview questions. That were fairly situational such as "what would you do if a customer....?"

    A couple of days after the pre-questioning, they sent me an email, scheduling an interview. I got there for the first interview a good fifteen minutes late because I went to the wrong home depot, but no one was present in the interview room so there was no real penalty. When the interviewer showed up, I greeted him and we sat in a small sort of office. One-on-one face to face interaction with your average interview questions, "Why should we hire you?" "What can you bring to our store?"

    But wait, there was more! I had a second interview a week later with the manager instead of a supervisor and he was basically asking about the experience I had with Hardware products and surveying how badly I wanted the job. This time he was late or rather a little busy I should say. I passed the first and the second was sort of the manager checking the supervisor's work. Not too difficult of an interviewing process the people are relatively laid back and the environment wasn't very intimidating.

    Interview

    Initial phone call, then an interview, then a job, the interviewer was very good, she offered different possibilities, listened to what i wanted and made the effort to accommodate me, has continued in that strain. It was a very easy and comfortable interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Thinking back, i don't think the interviewer had any difficult or technical questions, I imagine those questions are geared towards the higher positions such as supervisor and mgmt. positions. It seems for the position I applied for if you're sincere they're interested   Answer Question
