    Reasons for Declining

    How can an HR professional ask a patently criminal question or allude to a potential ADA tiger trap to start an interview? Mind boggling.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2012.

    Chronological background and Star based interview technique. Good process, but standardized so they miss some personal and professional information. The interview process is comprehensive with testing, 1:1 interview, and panel interviewing

    Store Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Gloucester Point, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Gloucester Point, VA) in June 2008.

    Interview

    In addition to an interview with the Store Manager and HR Manager, we all received an HR knowledge test, and an inbox test which was very challenging. It basically provided several different events that occurred within in a particular day and we had to respond to each question accordingly and note whether we responded via phone, e-mail, or in person. All questions related to HR or customer service responses.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember exactly what, but one of the inbox questions didn't make sense until you went further into your inbox, so it seemed like too vague of an issue to respond. But when you finally arrived to another item in your inbox everything made sense.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I asked how flexible was their offer and they said there was some flexibility. I offered an alternate amount of about 5K and they accepted.

    contacted by third party interviewer. didn't get a call about the location I desired that was open.

Interviews consisted of telephone, test and panel interview.
