    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Palm Coast, FL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    it took about 1 week after I applied to get a call. Did a 5 phone questionnaire with an automated system then it scheduled me for a in person interview. You have to go through what they call "3 interviews" first one is your basic interview, second is a sit down with a store manager and do a in store drug test and background check, 3rd one is accepting your job offer and salary and filling out pre employement paperwork.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stockton, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Stockton, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was scheduled through the company's website. I took some boilerplate online personality test. After about a month, I received an automated phone call asking for an interview. I made that appointment for later in the week. I went into my scheduled interview; the interviewer was not aware the interview had been scheduled. He asked me questions about my work history (he did not have my resume and I hadn't brought one; I thought that would be included in the information the company sent him... which they didn't.). The gentleman was very personable and suggested a couple options within the company, as I'd mentioned I was concerned about the standard 10 bucks an hour they were offering. He liked my qualifications and said he'd discuss me with the store manager; I should receive a call for a second interview by the end of the week. A week later, I followed up with him, and he assured me I'd hear something within another week. I haven't heard from them since.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Orange Park, FL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It was the first step of the interviewing process. This was an over the phone pre-screening before actually being scheduled for a 1:1 interview. They give you a few details about the job and ask if you're willing to perform certain task. They inform you that if you answer no to any of the questions you will not be considered for the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    This was really fast in my opinion and I'm happy about that fact, I applied and about 4 days later I received the automated bot call which asked me to come in for an interview. At the interview it was pretty laid back really liked the atmosphere I will say I felt nervous when I first walked in because there were about 10 other people interviewing so I felt on edge but once I was up the manger took me to his office and I have to say one of the best interviews I've ever had the guy didn't feel like a manger he felt more like a family member trying to welcome you to his family. After the last question we actually chatted for 10 min and he asked me if I would be able to handle it I said yes and he told me your hired and to go back to the room to preform a drug test and background check that was 2 days ago and I just got the call today that I cleared everything and to come in and fill some more paperwork.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Santa Clarita, CA) in January 2017.

    Called me in from applying online as it was fairly easy, a lot of situational questions and how does your experience help you for the job you are applying for. Filled out a packet of questions for the first interview. Said wait 3-7 days to see if you get a call back to come in for the second interview with the store manager and the drug test.
