    MET Team Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Online. Phone. In store. 10 questions. Get hired. Drug test/background. Wait a week or so. You start. Pretty basic. As long as you have a brain and can answer with confidence and share positive and negative experiences and how you corrected them, they'll like ya.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    With previous (over 10 years experience) time in retail (management) they didn't even consider giving a bump in pay. Just one flat rate. Not worth it. Great for starters. Not for retail vets.

    Specialty Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    The online info and interview was tedious at best. The online questionnaire was too long. I suspect this is designed to filter out people, but based on some of the people I work with I am amazed they got past it and received a job. Having been a manager at a national retailer I think they are just filling with warm bodies not really adding people who will become long term assets.

    What a mess - Vets stay away
    I came in for an assistant manager position that was advertised on the main home depot corporate site as well as locally. The first time I arrived the manager did not even show up. I rescheduled for another interview and the manager told me that the job was already filled and tried to get me some slightly above minimum wage job. Home Depot does not value education or leadership experience.

    Veterans stay away! It is not veteran friendly unless you are looking for a minimum wage job. Look at the yearly turnover. Its staggering and very indicative of how they have evolved. There are no former electricians, plumbers, carpenters in their ranks and you surely do not need to be low balled into this company if you are coming out of the military. Go else where and prosper!

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were juvenile and hardly worth mentioning. More time was spent talking about the poor hours and how hard it is on the family.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    I got to the Home Depot about 15 min before my interview then went towards the front desk asked for directions to where I needed to go then made my way towards the back. I made contact with employees and told them why I was there they sat me down asked what time was my interview then said okay we'll be with you shortly. The interview went pretty good the questions were very simple to me nothing to confusing. In all the interview took about 15 to 20 min then they offerd me a position which I accepted and refered my application to that specific department manager and said wait for a call.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. Passed the personality test after submitting the application through their website. I was then contacted by phone from Atlanta for a quick phone interview. I was then asked to come into my local store for my first interview. I met with an ASM and a Dept. Supervisor. They offered me a possible full time position as the Department Supervisor, and set me up with another interview for that. The second in-store interview was with the Store Mng. and an ASM. They then officially offered me the position. I was given forms to do a pre-employment drug screening within 48 hours. After almost a week I was called in to sign my employment papers and schedule training. After training on the computer for a week, I participated in an off site training program for a week, at another store in our district, for more in depth training about being in a leadership role.
