    MET Team Interview

    Interview Details

    Ask you a lot of questions based on scenarios, if you've taken the test on the website, be prepared to take it again in person. It wasn't too bad but I didn't even know what to wear and came in business clothes and really could have just worn jeans and a t-shirt. Some of the management is nice, others not so much.

    Interview Questions
    • They ask you about certain areas in the store and how you might handle a situation, if you have no experience in hardware, PPE or anything else like that you won't have a clue how to answer the questions.   Answer Question

    The HR lady at home depot called me in for an interview, I had no idea what position I was even being hired for. So I went to the interview pretty much blind, also it was my first interview. Not really knowing how the departments worked and maybe I am going to be working everywhere.. I had my interview, went well, got the job, the end.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview Details

    The process is forever! They have to interview at least 3 people. The questions are difficult and have to be answered in 3 parts. Most of the time the person interviewing already has someone in mind, for the position making the process a bit unfair. It's very difficult to get an office position unless you know someone.

    It is a joke. They have you answer a ton of questions and then they have a stupid third party company call and drill you a little before you can even talk to anyone at the store location that you applied.

    I applied on a Saturday. Monday I recieved a company generated email that requested that I call into this automated number and speak with a rep. The rep asked me 4 questions and documented mu answers. The following day an HR rep called me and asked I was avaible to come in earlier for my interview, in which I accepted. The interview was about 30 minutes. The manager explained why they were hiring and really focused on the company culture and his expectations of his workers. After answering all of his questions, I met another manager, who spoke with me. Once the interview was concluded, an offer was made to me on the spot :). Once I accepted, I was immediately directed to go take a drug test. I was then advised that the background check will take about 3 days and the HR rep will call me to let me know when the training class will start.
