    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Muskegon, MI
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Muskegon, MI) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I first had an over the phone automated interview, in which I had to answer yes or no to the questions. I had to basically answer yes to all of the questions in order to be considered for a face to face interview. Once I completed that, I had to schedule the face to face interview, but the face to face interview was really a let down as they only asked a few questions. I had my resume with me but the interviewer wasn't even interested in looking at it. I was then told that if I made it to the 2nd round, I'd be called back in for a 2nd interview. I felt a bit let down that I came in for a face to face interview that was so brief, and that my resume wasn't even a priority.
