Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot in April 2019.

Called me in less than a week for an interview. Questions were simple and easy to answer. Then they called me in the next week for a "second" interview. They basically told me I got the job but asked if I could be front desk instead and asked for a drug test right away.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Franklin, TN) in January 2019.

    Interview

    First, you have to wait for the help desk to call someone for your interview. The interview process was very generic. I felt like he was reading from a sheet, asking me "how to handle failure" and "working as a team". He did his job with a neutral face, in an average way, but stuck the landing on placement of position for hire. He did so by taking note of my abilities and choosing the right position for me. Then they do a drug swab, where you have to wait while this thing is in your mouth for a couple of minutes. After that, they needed you to read some digital stuff and digitally sign some background information.

    All interviews are a carbon copy for all positions. There is no originality for different positions and are very basic. There can be a lack of enthusiasm if the person giving the interview is feeling pressed for time.

    Interview

    The HR lady at home depot called me in for an interview, I had no idea what position I was even being hired for. So I went to the interview pretty much blind, also it was my first interview. Not really knowing how the departments worked and maybe I am going to be working everywhere??.. I had my interview, went well, got the job, the end.
