Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at The Home Depot in April 2017.

Interview

Applied in February through the university career fair. It took four months to finally receive a phone call about setting up a phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 20 minutes, and seemed like it was going well. The interviewer interned at Home Depot for 3 straight summers and was now there full time, super smart guy, really grilled me about my resume and experiences but overall seemed pretty excited about me and said the recruiter would contact me in a week. Never received a phone call or a reply to my thank you emails after that day.

Interview Questions

  • Tell me about yourself, tell me about any out of school projects you've been working on, general project/various software experience   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    Interview was at the Home Depot office; several candidates were invited for an "Internship Day" where we took turns being interviewed by a series of employees (3-4; mostly technical-ish interviews). Though we were told that we'd hear back in 2 weeks at most, it was over 6 weeks before hearing back.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Atlanta, GA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Sent my resume to a recruiter that visited my school. A few weeks later had an easy phone screen. Then I waited a few months not hearing anything from my recruiter until they scheduled an on site. I never got a confirmation about the onsite and they had to reschedule it. After the onsite, I received an offer a few days later.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Atlanta, GA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Very casual process. Apply with a resume -> phone screening interview (minimal technical questions) -> in person interview day. Over the phone my questions were primarily behavioral and work/school history based - "talk about a project you worked on", "Tell me about how you juggle multiple tasks well". In person the questions were much more technical, but that was dependent on which interviewer I got. Several of the other people in the room said their interviewer asked them no technical questions.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Atlanta, GA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was easy but timely. First round was a coding test they sent via email. Second round was a phone screening where technical questions were asked. Third round was an in-site interview with some technical questions but mostly fit.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    I was called for a phone screen, was called and asked a series of questions for 30 minutes. The interviewer seemed more interested in testing for knowledge of programming terms, not problem solving skills. It felt like a test that was testing the wrong skills for this type of job. I did not get a positive view of the culture for their IT developers.

    • Wanted to know a text book definition of abstraction, and other object-oriented programming terms and concepts.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Applied through university recruiting to the Atlanta (main) office. Within a week of dropping off my resume to a representative, I received an email inviting me to a phone interview which was mostly behavioral. I stuttered a lot and thought I didn't make it. After the phone interview, I received an invite to a site interview two weeks or so later. The interview didn't happen until an interview event the next semester.
