Department Supervisor Interview

Anonymous Employee in Newark, OH (US)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Newark, OH (US)) in August 2020.

Interview

Interviewer was a very laid-back...
However my current issue is, that I applied for department supervisor I have lots of management experience 15 years worth!

they never said they didn't like any my experience, they never really complemented on it, they never honestly proved very deep into it but instead....

Next thing I know I'm being led into a part-time order picker job!

My choice was that or the service desk...

they never explained why, they never told me that I didn't qualify or that I have to be there for so long in order to actually get the position of department supervisor...

so basically I'm now a part-time employee and I'm highly confused as to why and how!

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Columbus, OH (US)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    We walked around for 10 minutes while they tried to figure out who knew how to give an interview. All of the managers were confused and didn’t know where or how.

    The interview was given in the break room with 5-10 employees coming in and out talking and eating.
    Then to top it off they end the interview by telling me the position was filled internally and they are going through the motions of interviews because corporate.

    They have 6 specific questions they ask and grade you on basically they are looking for you to say key words or phrases. Any additional questions they ask are for the managers to get to know you and even though you do have to hit those key words, the more additional questions the managers ask the better a chance you have at getting the job

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Mooresville, NC (US)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Had an initial phone interview, which was asking "tell me a time when" questions.. passed that and received an in-person interview - this is when things went downhill. It was initially with a female, then she said she would go get her boss... when he came in, he saw that I was a police officer, and said "I see you were security?" I said "A police officer" and he responded with "So, security".... really??.. then he went on to say I didn't have any leadership experience even though my resume clearly stated in bold font that I used to be an assistant manager, a supervisor, and leadership through law enforcement. He was very dismissive and it was clear they already had someone picked out. Will never come to them again.
