    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Aurora, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Aurora, IL).

    Interview

    The interview was fairly informal. I first spoke to one of the assistant managers, then the human resource director and finally the store manager. During the interview I was asked a series of questions and because of my answers and experience the manager thought that I was capable of more responsibility. The manager offered me a head cashier position with the potential to become an assistant manager.

    Interview Questions

    • One question that seems to get asked in all interviews is "where do you see yourself five years from now?" I was in the process of getting my BA in Legal Studies so I was not sure how I should answer that question. I was honest and it had no effect on me getting hired.   Answer Question
