Difficult Interview

Very grueling, common questions that come from a printout that seems to be the standard for any job anymore.

There are little negotiations available with this company

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Philadelphia, PA) in October 2007.

    Interview

    I submitted detailed application online. Was called about 10 days later with phone interview. Made appointment for one on one interview in about 15 days. Had interview with human relations manager and was offered position as long as background check and drug testing were acceptable. I did not feel the HR person knew a lot about what was required for kitchen design.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Atlanta, GA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    After the phone interview with corporate I was set up for an in store interview. The manager was not aware of my interview so he rescheduled. On the second interview I had to wait over 45 minutes. I completed a group interview with the department head and a manager. I was then asked back to do another interview with a separate manager. I was then asked back for a 3rd interview with the Store Manager who offered me the position

    Negotiation

    The store manager offered me $2 less than the corporate off had told me would be the pay. After waiting $30 minutes for the manager to decide whether or not he would approve the higher pay he stood strong to his first offer. I declined the job and was called 3 days later offering me the original amount the corporate office had promised

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    Applied online. Called for a phone screening then a face to face with HR. While interviewing I was told the kitchen designer position was not available but they had another full time position they wanted me to consider and asked me to return a week later to sit down with a department manager. So I arrive, introduce myself and the managers first words were, you have a great resume are you only looking for full time employment. Yes! That was noted on my application full time only as well as my salary requirements. Long story short they offered me a part time position at less than half the salary requested. Actually, a salary I was making out of high school in the late 80s. I was rather annoyed. Why waste my time and theirs. They ask these questions on applications... Why not read it!! If I'm asking 18.50-20 an hour did they really think I'm going to work for $9?????

    Reasons for Declining

    Offer was ridiculously low. Not even something I would try to negotiate higher.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Providence, RI) in October 2011.

    Interview

    First you speak to the HR, then you meet with the store manager. They wanted to know background and experience. Must take drug test. Not too difficult of an interview. They wanted to know how familiar you are with the store layout. Know which aisle different product is located like faucets vs. nails, etc.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Schaumburg, IL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed first with the HR employee who asked me relatively specific questions regarding the job position. Once she determined that I was qualified, she had me interview with the SASM (specialty assistant store manager) who did a role-play in which she acted as a customer and I had to sell a kitchen to her. Then I came back a few days later and she had me interview with the store manager who asked me specific role-related questions. The SM does not usually interview sales staff, but he does interview for specialty positions, especially the Kitchen Designer, as they have the highest-paid non-manager position in the store.
