    Floor Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    Really easy, basic interview questions. Interviewed with two people. The department supervisor and the HR leader. Got the job offer that same day. Total time lasted about 30 min. One of the easiest interviews I have had. It wasn't very professional and it seemed as if that they didn't take particular care of the interview process. Never got to meet the manager.

    Interview

    I met the recruiters at an event at my college and was scheduled for an interview the next day. I was surprised to find out that the interview was in teams of 4. The interview consisted of two parts. During the first part, we were asked to reorder some lines of code and walk through our reasoning. During the second part(which didn't involve any coding), we were asked to come up with a creative and cost-effective solution to build a dorm for students, given a set of guidelines and restraints.

At the end of it all she told me what position she had available and I took it. This was my first job interview, but it was not my first job, so I understood all the questions she asked.
