    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Tempe, AZ) in September 2015.

    Interview

    3 Stage interview. First is on the internet answering basic knowledge questions of home improvement to locate your best fit department. Next is a phone interview (outsourced) which is a bit frustrating with you giving monologues and waiting for the guy on the phone to finish writing down details. Last step is in person with associate at the store and store manager.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Home Depot (University of Denver, CO) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The entire process from application to interview was completely automated, mostly handled by robots. The interview questions were robotic standards, and despite feeling as though I'd made a personal impression on the interviewer, i had to call the store back to learn that "they'd found a more qualified applicant."

    There were a total of two interviews. The first one was with a hiring manager, she asked a list of typical behavioral type questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Fort Collins, CO) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The Paint Department Supervisor asked me very basic interview questions—name a time when this...or name a time when that...Ultimately, what seemed to matter most was whether she believed my personality would mesh well with the other associates in the department. Since these positions are very trainable, I thought that was a good approach.

    Standard interviewing process. You will meet with the Assistant Store Manager and if you pass that step, they will bring you back for an interview with the Store Manager.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Escondido, CA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Most of the interview was the manager describing the background and policies of the Home Depot as well as what the environment is. Then it followed by a series of questions about customer service. As long as you can appear to value customer service highly, you should do well during the interview.
