    Sales Associate - Seasonal Lawn and Garden Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Broussard, LA (US)

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Broussard, LA (US)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    99% of the "interview" is online as part of the application process. It will take you a few hours and is very complete. A few questions are tricky due to them asking you to [rank out of five choices the proper action to take in a situation.] If you get called in for an in-person meeting, you've pretty much got the job and they are just checking for consistency and personability with six or seven additional paragraph-form questions. I was personally seen by the store manager rather than the HR manager but it seems that was an exception.

    Interview Questions

    • There is a series of questions in which you are given five choices and need to choose the best and worst options for the given scenario. These do not seem to be consistent across multiple applications but need to be carefully considered from both a customer and associate point of view. There may not be a "wrong" answer to them but there certainly is a "more right" one.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Entering as a seasonal garden associate, there was little negotiation beyond setting my available hours.

    Simple interview. HD needs bodies for summer work. If you work out they hire you as a permanent employee. They train you in the selling process, which in some cases is interesting.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Lake Zurich, IL (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Overly complex online process, two unnecessarily long tests. One phone screen from a remote office. Lastly one last 1:1 interview that was more of a confirmation, than an interview. Rarely saw the hiring manager afterward, most of my onboarding was with the help of department employees who cared.
