    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Home Depot (North Bergen, NJ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The waiting was a bit longer than I expected, and the interview was about 20 minutes. The interview process was quick and easy she asked a lot of customer service questions & offered me the job on the spot for 12 dollars an hour part time. I haven't accepted it yet because I have another interview today but their offer was so good it's probably the one I will accept!

    Interview

    Interview is a joke, the person conducting the interview asked very simple questions. The interview lasted ten minutes. Anyone can get a job there because of the horrible turnover rate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Soquel, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was in three stages. First a phone review, then an HR interview, and finally an interview with the department head. The interviews were laid back and almost felt informal. The process was a little long from interview to offer considering the number of openings that needed immediate filling. It took longer than expected to get the background check back. HR was very good about staying in touch with me. I suggest that you give at least one follow up call to your interviewer a day or so after your interview to let them know that you are still interested and excited about The Home Depot.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Southfield, MI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online. I was contacted via phone for a phone interview. During the phone interview I was mostly asked questions about if I still wanted to apply for the position as well as told what the possible days that I could end up working.

    I was then contacted about coming into the hiring store for a face to face interview. I arrived 10 minutes early for my interview. I checked in at the customer service desk as I had been instructed. From there I ended up waiting 28 minutes past my interview time to be seen.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Torrance, CA).

    Interview

    Easy. You have to be horrible for them to not accept you.

    Interview Questions

    • It was all made up; they knew who they wanted by looks and a do-able wit. I was hired before the corporate phone interview. Fake. All fake.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, he just told me what I would be paid and made me sign a paper. I thought nothing of it. NEGOTIATE. This puny kid without a GED got paid more than me! Because he was a guy and I have an Associates degree.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    I applied online and about a week later received a call for an initial phone screening. By the end of the call, I was scheduled for an interview with store management. I was surprised that I was interviewed by the Store Manager. She asked about my past experience and what departments I would be most interested in. She said she would like to have me working directly with customers on high ticket purchases and suggested starting me as a greeter in Decor, and then put me through training to be a Kitchen Designer. She had me meet briefly with the Assistant Store Manager over those departments. I was then turned over to HR to sign paperwork, schedule the drug test, and told I would receive a call when background check and drug test results were received. About 2 weeks later I received a call from HR to come in to sign paperwork and schedule my orientation.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. I was told what the hourly wage would be. Just be sure to get clarification regarding what department(s) you will be working in and the type of tasks you will be expected to complete.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Seattle, WA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    I initially applied online, which was then followed by 2 interviews, both of the interviews were over the phone and they were fairly easy. Each took about 10-15 minutes, mostly basic interview questions plus some questions trying to identify your character and how you would handle certain situations. But the focus was mostly on customer service skills.
