    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.

    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.

    Pro Desk Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview was scheduled. Phone interview was relatively easy and fast. Interview was then scheduled in -store with Assistant Store Manager. Total process after being offered the position was about 30 days until start date. They have a policy that most new hires must start as a lot attendant, then, depending on your performance, you have the opportunity to move to an in-store position at a higher rate of pay.
    As stated though, the hiring process took approx. 4 weeks. Be patient

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    1. Initial typical recruiter phone screen about your background/past projects and motivations.
    2. Half a month later, a different recruiter contacted me to schedule a conversation with a technical architect.
    3. The technical phone screen with aforementioned architect was simply more elaboration of my background and motivations. No programming or theory-related questions were asked.
    4. Second technical phone screen lasting about an hour with a panel engineers in both Austin, TX and Atlanta.
    5. Onsite interview with technical architect and another technical architect plus senior director. The onsite interviews were simply more questions about background and motivations. There were no programming or use of the whiteboard.
