Application Details

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

Interview Details

Initial communication: I applied online and within about two days I was contacted by email and phone. I interviewed on the phone for about 15 minutes answering a few questions regarding previous employment. I recieved an invitation to meet and interview in person within that week. I originally was interviewing for a Freight team, seasonal position. Interviewed in person with the department head over lawn & garden whom wanted me for a Waterer, seasonal position. Hired on the spot, I accepted.

I did a drug test and background check and within a week was scheduled for an orientation.

When I went into do my paperwork I was informed that it was to be a Waterer until the season was over and I would be kept on as a Floor associate in the Lawn & Garden area. I worked on the floor and as a waterer for about two months and then was moved to cashier.

    Received a phone call from the Hiring Center and answered a few questions. I was then set up for an interview at my store and hired on the spot. It was really simple and there was not anything hard about it. Home Depot is desperate for people that want to work.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    originally, I applied for merchandizing position online. They called me a few days after and after a phone interview, they invited me for an actual interview at the store. I met the merchandizing team leader, cool guy, we talked for some time, he showed me what exactly merchandizing means since i didn't have experience with this type of job. Than he found out about my experience as store associate and dealing with customers. The questions were pretty common, nothing specific and nothing tricky. Remember, the main focus is customers and safety! The interview was close to an hour.

    Later the same day he called me and asked me to go and apply online for cashier position and than call a different person and schedule an interview. I did that and the next day I was there for another interview with a different manager. This one was more customer service oriented and again nothing stressful or tricky, talked about my previous experience and than got scheduled for a second interview the next day. The next day I met, i think, the store manager, he was a little too serious but still nice. This is where I got offered a position and talked about salary. I was asked to go take drug test and than we were gonna talk about start day.

    The questions were really pretty common for retail jobs. The focus is, as I said - customers and safety! Remember customers always come first, whatever you are doing and they come and ask for help and interrupt, you just smile and help with whatever you can. Do not ever make customer feel bad and worry about your personal problems or whatever could be stressing you at that moment. They should be getting as positive experience at the store as possible. And the other focus - safety! Learn and know the safety rules and follow them without exception!

How did you handle it?' and two other similar questions. The representative was impressed enough and set up an in-store interview for me promptly.
