    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Ontario, CA (US)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Everyone was kind and smiling. I was brought into a room where I awaited my interviewer. I was then called up for my interview. The supervisor asked many questions from a book. For example, "why do you want to work there?" After that interview I was sent to another interviewer. He asked me a couple of the same questions. I was sent to a different room with some other people. From there we went to take a drug test and were informed about the job. Process took about 2-3 hours

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Van Buren, OH (US)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The application was online and was followed by a brief and easy skills test (can you match two numbers). It was then followed by a phone interview from a call center verifying that you understand the physical workload and then had me schedule an in-person interview. The interview was started with a brief tour of the facility and one of the most strenuous positions there to make sure the physical workload was understood. I was then taken back to the office where a short review of my work history was covered and then was offered a position pending the drug and background screening.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Westfield, MA (US)).

    Interview

    Very relaxed. Went in there on my first interview and talked to a floor supervisor. Asked about previous employment mainly, and your reasons for leaving. Then he brought me to someone higher up, cracked one joke and showed a smile. Immediately was offered the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Home Depot.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called up a few weeks later. Basically, you go through an automatic system over the phone before being connected to a call center. Then, someone in a monotonous tone describes the position to you and makes sure you're still interested. Next, basic background questions are asked. Later on, they finally get to when you would actually need to be available for the job. I applied for a part-time position, though the hours I needed to be available still didn't fit with my schedule so the interview pretty much ended there for me.

    All in all, none of that was a big deal. But then I applied to another position and later got a call, yet it was for this position again. I went through the process again out of curiosity, yet the times I needed to be available didn't change. At a later point I was called up for a third time and was really hoping it was for the other position I applied to, but nope. It was for the Warehouse position again and I tried to explain my predicament to the person on the other end of the line but they just said "... so you're not interested in this position?", despite me having asked about the other position I applied to among other things. Frustrated, I just told the person "no" and was then led to a survey I didn't bother with.

    So basically, it's been a hassle trying to apply for Home Depot. I didn't even mention all the issues I ran into when applying online. Two of the three people I spoke to from their call center were just unpleasant to talk to and I didn't like that they mention availability so far into the interview. It's all just been a huge waste of time.
