    Hardware Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Upper Darby, PA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Upper Darby, PA (US)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    There was a lag between when I applied and was interviewed-maybe a month or so. Most of the "interview" was online, with screening questions about how I'd handle a difficult situation, etc. The face-to-face interview was very very brief. They conducted a urine screening for illegal drugs. There was an 800 number that I needed to cal to get updates on my application.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't really remember. Almost all of the questions were handled online . The more difficult questions (all multiple choice), involved gray areas of how to handle both co-workers and customers. On most of these questions I said I would ask my manager about the situation. There were a lot of questions that dealt with me witnessing theft from the store, either by a customer or employee. Dealing with theft seemed to be one of the greatest weaknesses at the Upper Darby Home Depot.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. But I was surprised later on, to learn that I started at a higher salary than a co-worker who had already been there 3.5 years and had work experience that provided more product knowledge than I had. They offered me a part-time hardware sales position at $9.50/hour and I took it

    Interview

    Initial phone call, then an interview, then a job, the interviewer was very good, she offered different possibilities, listened to what i wanted and made the effort to accommodate me, has continued in that strain. It was a very easy and comfortable interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Thinking back, i don't think the interviewer had any difficult or technical questions, I imagine those questions are geared towards the higher positions such as supervisor and mgmt. positions. It seems for the position I applied for if you're sincere they're interested   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot in February 2013.

    Applied online, filled out a 30-45 minute questionnaire about general knowledge and skills for home improvement.

Was a simple interview that went well, although i never directly interviewed with the store manager, I hear most employees do.

    Mentioned i had years of customer experience and much familiarity with tools and handiwork already. She kinda casually brushed it off and said that was already considered.
