I applied online - interviewed at Home Depot in February 2014.

Interview Details The interview process was question and answering. The hiring process was a background check and a drug test. I thought the process went well. The interviewer was very professional. Took me to meet the manager and told the manager that I meet all qualification for the job and was given paperwork for the drug test.

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Home Depot in February 2014.

Interview Details The whole process took nearly 3 months. I applied back in February and got a call from the staffing center. I answered a few questions on the phone and was given an interview date. I showed up for the interview and it went well. I waited a week and tried calling the HR department for a status no answer. A few weeks later in mid March I was called to set up a second interview, I was unable to make it to any of the dates they had available so they told me to call back the next morning to speak to a manager to set up a time, I called multiple times and there was no answer any time. I went into the store a week later to leave a physical message with customer service for HR to call me and in early April I received a call to set up my second interview. I proceeded with the interview and was offered the job on the spot pending drug test and background screening. A few weeks later I was given a date for orientation.

Interview Question – They were pretty simple questions I just don't remember the questions   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation

I applied online and interviewed at Home Depot.

Interview Details Had a phone interview 3 - 4 weeks after applying online at about 6 different locations. Phone interview was short and simple. Called in 2-3 months later for in-store interview. This was more like a screening - very informal. Used a standard packet of 6-7questions and jotted down responses of one to two sentences. Did not take many notes at all. Workers came and went through the room during the whole process. Called in 2 days later for third and final interview with district manager. Told to come in two days later and that I needed to come in on that specific day. Manager was running 20 minutes late, so I had to sit around with nothing to do for 20 minutes in the work room. When we met for the interview, it was extremely short and simple. Just wanted to know if I could do the job, really wanted the job, and was capable. Lasted about 20 minutes or less.

Interview Question – Why should we hire you?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – no negotiating - except for days/times worked - but even that was discouraged

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Home Depot.

Interview Details It was a very pleasant interview and I only had one with the Store Manager, she explained what is expected of the part time cashiers from a customer service standpoint very well and she explained the Home Deport family values.

Interview Question – She did give me a couple of scenarios that may have been a bit tricky but are actually easy to answer, just be polite and direct the customer to management.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not too difficult

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Home Depot in July 2013.

Interview Details Applied online, was called within a few days of applying for a phone interview. I was asked a few very generic interview questions and then was scheduled a in-person interview at my local store. My interviewer was very welcoming and asked questions about my past experiences relating to the job and how I would/have acted in certain situations in the past. I was offered the job on the spot and accepted, pending a background/urine test. It took like 2-3 weeks for them to call to set up a orientation... I had called a couple of times wondering why it had been taking so long and they had told me they were waiting for the urine test.. I guess the wait is common in the company though.. Many others I work with had the same long wait.

Interview Question – Describe a time you went above and beyond for the customer.
What do you find most difficult about working in retail?
What makes you an asset to the team?
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No wage negotiation.
