Interview

About a 10 to 15 min one on one interview with either a manager or store manager. Sometimes two interviews. It was a pretty easy painless process. I think I had two interviews one with a manager and the second with a store manager.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online and was contacted within a week. Did a phone interview with boilerplate interview questions (tell me about yourself, tell me about a time when you multitasked, what experience in sales do you have, etc.). Then from there was contacted within a few days from the store's HR manager to set up an interview. Interviewed with a department manager (though he wasn't from flooring, and I do know that others interview with the assistant store managers). He asked some more general questions in addition to specific sales questions but they weren't expecting me to be a genius about flooring, they just want solid employees who seem to be able to sell for them. For example he asked me to role play selling a carpet to see what I'd bring up (budget, style, location, etc.). After interview they hired me on the spot contingent upon a drug test and background check.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the assistant store manager. Overall it was an easy interview, they seemed to be primarily focused on my availability. With the right availability it seems like you can get any job at Home Depot. Assistant manager was nice.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (McHenry, IL (US)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Well it took a few weeks after submitting the online application, but was eventually contacted by the automated pre-qualification system. After that the interview process was easy, quick, and standard.

    They are very organized and know exactly what they are doing! They do extensive background checks, drug screening, and knowledge testing.

    All in all if you have good skill in home improvement, not convicted of a felony is some time, you have a good opportunity to be hired

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was emailed that I would receive a call for a phone interview, the person on the phone asks you generic interview questions. They are the ones who make the decision whether you move on to the in person interview. When I arrived for my in person interview I was only asked about 5 questions and then offered the position.

    My hiring manager barely looked at my resume. It tasted about 20 minutes at most. You will be contacted by phone if you are willing to accept this job before you interview in person.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Columbus, OH (US)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Straightforward retail questions. Fairly easy.
    -how would you handle difficult customers
    -how would you handle a coworker stealing
    -what do you do when you can't answer a customer's question

    Small roleplaying session about a standard interaction with a customer. Product knowledge isn't expected at this point. They're looking more for ability to listen, ask appropriate questions, think on your feet.

    Didn't ask any questions about previous jobs, employers, or school. The whole process only took about 20 minutes, the roleplay took up most of the time.
