    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Boston, MA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    First interview was with an Assistant Store Manager. They asked me a series of questions and graded each of my answers. If you get a second interview you pretty much have the job. The second interview was with another ASM and a meet and greet with the Store Manager. The second interview was basically a recap of the first interview. We also figured out which department would be a great fit for me.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Houston, TX) in February 2018.

    Interview

    There were 2 interviews and then an immediate mouth swab drug test. I was taken to my first interview which consisted of basic customer service questions and scenario questions. I was then taken to a second interview with the store manager which consisted of availability and logistical questions. I fortunately impressed him enough to hire me on as a full-time position, which he apparently seldom does. Enthusiasm goes a long way!

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Aurora, CO) in February 2018.

    You apply online, get an email if there's an open position, and do a questionnaire from an email link. If you finish the questionnaire with the answers it wants, it'll set you up for an interview time. Showing up for that interview, an employee takes you to the staff room to sit for a few minutes, then into a room near or attached to that one for the interview itself. You're first asked to verify everything on your application, then the 4-5 scripted questions start.
