Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Vernon Hills, IL) in December 2010.

Interview

Sat down with the Merch. Exec. Mgr. and he asked me about 5 questions as it relates to my past experience and how it would apply to this job. Very easy questions.

Interview Questions

  • Describe a time when you had to meet a specific deadline although you had a lot on your plate.   Answer Question

Negotiation

Before the interview, I did research on what the positions paid and found that on average it paid 3 dollars more an hour than what they were offering me. In the end, I was told that the pay for this particular position has gone down in the last year and was no longer as high. I feel that was nonsense.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Newnan, GA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straight forward to what the company's expectations were of what the position was about. I was interviewed by a district manager which I am proud of because the district manager was the one who offered me the position. The district manager explained to me how the position was needed for the company and how it was created and gave me a lot of tips in order to perform the duties that were required to be successful.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Philadelphia, PA) in August 2009.

    Interview

    The whole process seemed fairly standard for retail, they score you with some paper they have. It also seemed to take longer than it should. The one on one was about average but I had to keep coming back to fill out some paper about this or that, pretty annoying. It made me think that it could be run a little more organized. Also, interestingly I was hired about two months before the job actually started.

    Interview Questions

    • You are asked to role play as an experienced garden associate and the interviewer as a new guy and he needs help figuring out the differences between string trimmers (weed whackers).   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There were no negotiations, I was asked what did I make now and when I answered my now manager said something to the effect of I can swing that. Which lead me to believe It was more than average or about average. My advice to others would be know the pay scale which is about $9-$11 an hour.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Orlando, FL) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online. Had a brief interview with a bot. Was then transferred to a live rep who told me more about the job and that I would be traveling to the two closets HDs in my area, and I would be reimbursed for gas mileage over 35 miles a day, which was fine. She then began to ask me the general what would you do type of questions. After the interview was complete she transferred me over to schedule a 1 on 1 interview. I was scheduled to have an interview at a "Hiring Event" at a Devry University 30 miles away a few days later. I was asked to wait in a waiting room where there were Dunkin Donuts and one other guy waiting. The two MEA supervisors came took the guy and before I could finish reading a pamphlet they gave me at the door, they came back to get me. I was taken to a room filled with about 10 tables very close together, each table was other people being interviewed. Prior to the interview beginning I was informed I would be driving daily to about 5-7 different HDs in my area, they mentioned nothing about gas reimbursement and I didn't ask. They were very nice and made me feel comfortable on an interview where I am usually filled with nerves. The interview asked basically the same questions as the telephone interview, what would you do type, (if an angry customer, if your routine was changed, what safety precautions would you take etc) They were reading from a packet they had with predetermined questions. One read the other wrote.
