    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Home Depot in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    You apply online, receive a call from a call center in which they conduct the first interview with three questions. The second interview is conducted in the store they select you for (when you apply the call center could select you for another store that is close to your home as well). I was asked to come one more time and conduct an interview with the store manager. After I was done with the store manager I waited another 3 days and started the orientation.

    Administrative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    The process is forever! They have to interview at least 3 people. The questions are difficult and have to be answered in 3 parts. Most of the time the person interviewing already has someone in mind, for the position making the process a bit unfair. It's very difficult to get an office position unless you know someone.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at The Home Depot in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    The application process was rather quick, around a week or so I got a call from HR to do a phone screening and got scheduled to meet with the hiring manager for an initial interview the following week. Upon meeting with the hiring manager I got asked typical question such as What do you know about Home Depot, Why do you want to work here, and my personal goals. Introduction questions aside, the manager then proceeded to ask me questions off the STAR packet. I will admit that I was not prepared for this so I stumbled upon answering on the spot. It seems they grade you based on how you answer, every time I hesitated or repeated myself he would make marks on the packet. After 5 questions or so I was dismissed, and was told I would get a call in 2 days or so if I got hired.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions I got asked where based off the STAR format. So, be prepared and be ready to mention scenarios either from school, volunteer work or past employment.   Answer Question

    I applied online - interviewed at The Home Depot in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The HR was an hour and a half late for my interview, claiming she did not remember we even had one. She was not prepared at all, and told me she was hungover from the night before. She called all the managers and no one wanted to interview me. I was there for over 3 hours and I got the job right after the interview was over.
