Application

I applied online – interviewed at The Home Depot (Baltimore, MD (US)) in April 2015.

Interview

I did the application online, got a call back a couple days later about doing a phone interview. The phone interview was rather easy just a few questions about yourself. The rep then told me that she wanted to schedule a interview in person. That interview was fairly easy, just six questions. After that the manager told me that I should be receiving a call back from them within the next couple of days. . . Got the call the next day asking me to come in the day after for a background check. Lets see how this goes.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot (Montreal, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    I went to the fair and met with a head cashier and she liked the fact that I made some research before about the company. She asked me some regular question and situation questions. My advices: the client is always the more important person in your life, as a cashier, if your client didn't have a good experience in store, it's your responsability to give him the good impression to make him want to come back. Make a visual contact with him, SMILE, ask him if he found all he needed, etc.
    So, after 1 1/2 week, they called me for an interview. I went, and the HR guy literally asked me 2 general questions easy to answer (Tell me about yourself and why do you want to work here) and after, I signed contract C: So I'm doing the formation now. Good look! People here are really nice! (at least in my store in Montreal and the people I met)

    Interview

    Interesting that the first interviewer was a computer. I was then transfered to a person who asked me more questions. She then set me up with an in person interview. Wish me luck, I go into the store for my in person interview this coming Tuesday.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at The Home Depot (North Richland Hills, TX (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied a few months before and then had to take an online character assessment test. I guess I must have passed it because Home Depot's automated employment center started calling last month. When I called back there were a few easy automated questions and then it sent my call over to a real person. They asked if I would be willing to provide excellent customer service. Of course. They told me the starting wage for the position was $9.00, which I was OK with. Then they stated that the position would require open availability Monday through Sunday.... and I was out. I have a daughter and can not work ANY shift. Not a very flexible part time job.
