    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Port Charlotte, FL (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    I applied at a computer at a local home depot. I was called to meet at the port Charlotte store for an face to face interview. They asked me basic questions like have you ever had to follow instructions or please describe a time that you needed to help a customer.

    Interview Questions
    • They wanted me to role play a scenario where a customer pays for something that cost him/her over 500 dollars. As they walk out the alarm goes off. You would then try to make sure you scanned everything and from there how you handle the situation is what they judge you on. The correct thing to do is to just say "your right have a nice day".   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online for the position and store I wanted to work for. I was called by an automated voicemail to partake in screening questions over the phone. Basically, they wanted to find out my availability. It is best to guarantee an interview if you are flexible. Next, I was called in and I completed my interview at the store. It went pretty well and the hiring manager said that they would get back to me. However, I had to be persistent and keep calling to check on my status. I was finally invited about three weeks later to another interview with one of the managers in the store. That went well and then I was able to sit and fill out paperwork. I was not offered the position that I applied for which was Office Associate, but I did eventually get into Home Depot.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. After a week I got an email that they were going to call me to have a phone interview with me. They called me that same day as I got the email. I was not able to answer at the time. I called back the day after and had the interview. Just in case you're wondering at first it's an operator but for the interview they transfer you to a h.r manager. It was my first interview so I was a bit nervous. Personally I think I was nervous but anyone who has experience should do good. In the end I was told "if they do hire you, you should be contacted via email or telephone." At least they were frank since the beginning. P.s it is a call from Georgia

    Merchandise Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a Home Depot recruiter about the position on LinkedIn. I sent my resume and got a phone interview.

    After the phone screen I had to take two online assessments, one was more about my personality and the other was a basic math skills test. After this I waited about a week and a half and didn't hear anything so I reached out to the recruiter. That day I got a call back to set up an in person interview.

    I had the in person interview about two weeks later. The first hour of the interview was a case study. I worked on the case study then after the hour was up I went in front of two senior merchants and one HR recruiter. They started by asking about the case and my analysis of the problems presented. The next part was the more standard interview about my background and about how I would fit in with the department goals. I was told I would hear back from them that night.

    I got the call back that night, and the next step was a "fit" phone interview with a VP. That happened the next day. Then that next Monday I got a call that I was being offered the job.

    Every person I interacted with from the security guards, to the receptionist, to the recruiters and merchants were nothing but nice and reassuring. They all put me at ease and made me feel really comfortable throughout the process. In total it took about 4 weeks, but after I had the in person interview I knew in 2 days that I had been offered the position.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really difficult. The case analysis was the hardest part. Know what the job is that you're interviewing for and the case was really in-line with what I expect to be doing.   Answer Question
