    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    the overall interview process was quick. Dress business casual. When answering questions be as honest as possible...there really is not any right or wrong answer. Everything for the most part is based off of you morals and ethics...Pass the drug test and you have yourself a job

    Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Applied at career site and received interviews for two similar roles under a month. At the end of the 2nd call, I concluded the same result for both. Recruiters and hiring managers are not on the same page. Hiring managers want specific skill sets (i.e. working with home depot applications), and recruiters recruit outside applicants that have similar/translatable skill sets but not company experience. Either recruiters need to only recruit internal employees or find applicants with the same "specific" experience or hiring managers need to be open to hire applicants with similar skill set and train the rest to close this gap.

    Sales Floor Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Johnson City, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Interview process was basically in three parts. The first step was an automated process on the phone. The second step was at the store with an assistant manager. The final interview step with the store manager (following two reschedules because of their poor planning). The store manager basically did a "bait and switch" job offer by pulling the full time floor associate position and offering me a part time overnight stocking position.

    Applied and took over two weeks for a recorded message telling me my application status. Very different than the normal ways of contacting respective applicants. Should figure out a more personal way going further

    Cashier Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Toms River, NJ).

    Interview

    So far I accidentally met the hiring manager during one of their workshops and she asked me if I wanted a job. So I filled out an application online which included a simple test at the end and it didn't take very long. Then I completed a phone interview with a robot. The phone robot told me that If I answered any of the questions no, that I would not qualify for a job at the Home Depot. So I answered yes to everything and now I'm going to my interview tomorrow.
