    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (San Diego, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Thought provoking. They want to see how you view scenarios and if you're able to both think on your feet while maintaining standard operating procedure. The interviewer was polite but direct. You could tell he knew what he was searching for.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The Home Depot (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I got a automated call and it let me set up which date id like for the interview. After that, I went and met with 2 people, one was the hiring manager & the other I presume to be the general manager. The GM asked me 3-4 questions and the hiring manager took notes. They really let me express myself with these questions. After that I kindly thanked them and handed my resume. Even though they already had printed it. I left the room and just as I was exiting 2 mins later, I got called back by the hiring manager who gave me the offer. Really pleasant interview and challenging with questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Lagrange, GA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very easy. I've already had two interviews, for two different positions. Usually two people are interviewing you and taking notes. First they asked me what shift I wanted to work, then they had 8 general questions. As you make sure you work in an environment that meets the standards of being safe. You do at the moment of completing your work, but you are constantly interrupted. Those are examples of how easy questions are.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Atlanta, GA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online to get a phone screen, which lasted about 30 min and was very laid back. There were a few behavioral and situational interview questions, but nothing technical. A few weeks later, I received an email telling me I was invited to interview onsite at the Store Support Center in Atlanta. This was a 2.5 hr process that involved taking a tour of the building and watching a presentation about the internship program. Then I had an interview with two associates who asked 6 behavioral questions followed by a verbal case study with another interviewer. I received a phone call and offer letter (via email) less than two weeks later.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell us about a project where you had to use out of the box thinking to reach a solution.
      What is an example of a time you were given a task you didn't have the resources to complete?
      When was a time you had to brainstorm to solve a problem?
      Before the case study, it's a good idea to brush up on NPV, DCF, CM, and cash flows analysis. It's also good to show that you can evaluate intangible costs/benefits.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Atlanta, GA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    First, there was a phone screening. I was notified that I received an interview a week or so later, and I travelled to their corporate office (The Home Depot SSC) in Atlanta. There were about 8 other interviewees with me, and we were taken on a tour of their incredible facility before having an orientation session of the history and structure of THD. Afterwards, we were escorted to the individual rooms in which we were going to be interviewed-- there were 2 interviews about 30 minutes apiece. First interview was strictly situational and resume-related. There were two employees and it was extremely casual and conversational. The second was a case study, but it was completely doable with a simple understanding of financials and business-knowledge. A very personable and intimate process for a company of that size and prestige.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Atlanta, GA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Did a phone screen with the hiring manager before being brought on-site. Interviewed with three different people and had to prepare a case study. The team was very personable. The only drawback was that there was a change in recruitment and took longer than expected to get feedback on an offer.
