    Merchandise Planner Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Atlanta, GA (US)).

    Interview

    You get a prescreen call from a Recruiter, then you complete two online assessments, then you come in for a 2 hour interview that includes two case studies (1hour to prepare both), a presentation of your case studies to two merchants followed by behavioral questions. If you do well with this part you will be scheduled for a phone interview with one of the VPs in Merchandising. The interview with the VP is a basically to see if you are a good fit for the role and culture. They will ask you a few behavioral questions and pick your brain at why you want to work at THD. Overall the process took a month and a half for me so be prepared to wait; but its worth the wait. This role is the gateway to many other roles in the company and a great opportunity to get your foot in the door.

    Interview

    This job was not open they called me in to interview. Was informed of this when I got there. Seemed not very 'above bar'. Should have been a bigger red flag, maybe.

    Merchandiser Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at The Home Depot in December 2017.

    Interview

    I went in about 10-15 minutes before my interview was actually scheduled and my interviewer came right away, which really helped with my nerves. He was very nice and walked me around the store, introduced me to everyone on the Merchandising team, and told me quite a bit about what exactly I would be doing if I got the job. We then went to his office where he asked me quite a few questions from a packet. There was probably about 15, and they were mostly all describe a time situations. It was a more difficult interview than I expected, but he was nice and went slow and made me feel very comfortable. The only awkward time was at the end after I asked a few questions we both just sort of sat there, haha. But he said he has a few more interviews to do and will contact the people he hires sometime next week so I’m really hoping I got it!

    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Nampa, ID (US)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewer was great....a very relaxed atmosphere in supervisors office. He asked me what I considered fair and unique questions to assess if I was qualified to fill the position. I had reservations as to if I would even want to work for the company, but by the time I left the interview I realized how very much I truly would like to have worked for Home Depot. I have not heard back from them yet but plan to apply for other jobs until I hopefully get hired.
