    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    Met with an assistant manager, spoke briefly, and then got the job. It was very brief. I gave my resume but it was not even glanced at. I believe the information they want is just garnered from the online application.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    Super simple structured interview with incredibly welcoming people. You can tell they like their jobs, which is always a good sign. They ask about 6 questions, almost all pertaining to how you'd interact with customers in certain situations so nothing crazy. Just be honest and thorough with your responses and you'll do great. Entire hiring process takes about a week and a half from the offer date because of waiting on background checks and the saliva drug test.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you handle a customer if you don't carry the product they ask for, or don't know the answers to their questions?   2 Answers

    • It's what they did not ask i.e. about XP. Yet they rejected me saying "tactical experience to execute in an XP environment was strong enough" even though XP was neither in the JD or on my resume. Ces't la vie!   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    Process was very quick. I was first interviewed by HR, it was very quick around 10-15 minutes. He stated my background fit perfectly and asked when I could schedule a face to face interview with the hiring manager. After scheduling the next interview, I met the hiring manager and we spoke for an hour. We discussed my background and they explained the jobs responsibilities. Standard questions nothing out of the ordinary. A few days later, I received an email that I would be hearing from the director of sales soon. A few days later, I scheduled a 30 minute interview. We talked on the challenges I would face in this role. How I would over come them and why I want this position with them. A week later, after emailing the hiring manager. He stated I’d hear from him in a few days. 3 or 4 days later I received a call from the hiring manager, where they wanted to offer me the position.
