Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, CA (US)
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Dublin, CA (US)) in August 2013.

Interview

You have to have it in good with the district team. There is a lot of back and forth before you are eligible to even start the interview process. Once started you walk on egg shells not to upset the district team.

    Interview

    Took forever. They don't give you much heads up. No preparation for the interview. Ridiculous questions that don't apply as usual to real world scenarios. Blah blah blah blah. They act like family is everything but your milked out till you break.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA (US)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Home Depot (Atlanta, GA (US)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Process was several phone calls, followed by an on-site interview. Upon arriving I fought my way thru all the picketing employees, and several security gates. I think it is safe to say it is a bad sign when you arrive at a company and most of the employees hate upper management and they just seem to laugh about it.

    The big picture - no follow-ups, 60 day hiring cycle, cheap expense reimbursement, incompetent corporate HR department, Clueless management, junior staff- Home Depot was a real dog and pony show. My advice to top tech talent: stay away. It doesn't seem like they really care about candidates at all. I just don't think they value people. They probably wipe their butts with 500 candidates to get 1 worker. I would not suggest them to anyone in IT after my experience.

    Interview Questions

    • If I would work for 30% less than what had originally been offered. Of course, cheaping out was what got the company into the mess they are in in the first place.   1 Answer

    Interview

    There was an open store manager position in the Atlanta area. I submitted my name through our HR and I was interviewed by our District Manager when I was an Assistant Store Manager. They needed help and I had the experience so I was offered the position. Now I am typing extra words to get through the process.
