Special Services Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Carefree, AZ
Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Carefree, AZ) in May 2017.

Interview

Very informal and handled by people who have zero experience in HR. They hire cashiers for the position because they pay so poorly. They forget your schedule request you write on paper and then flat out lie to your face about it. Just like the seasoned employees, management will throw you under the bus to keep their gigs going.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Porter, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and completed position assessment. Two days later I received an email with a follow up phone screen interview from the Atlanta. They asked me behavior questions using previous experience scenarios. After 1st phone interview I received an email within 2-3 days to follow up with on-site interview with HR. HR interview was delayed due to re-scheduling. In person interview was laid back and easy repetitive questions from phone interview including work experience (10 min interview). If your a great candidate they ask question to see where you best fit in. I was interviewing for cashier position and ended up at service desk due to my experience and accomplishments.
