London, ON

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at The Home Depot in June 2009.

Interview Details Submitted resume online. However, waited a very long time to get a call from HR, probably 3 weeks or so. Phone interview on the spot. There were many soft skill questions, scenarios, but mostly the standard interview questions. There wasn't much if any questions regarding anything technical. Mostly how you deal with customers. There was a follow-up in person interview about a week later. Same deal.

Interview Question – There weren't any questions that really stood out.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It was part-time., min. wage, set pay. No negotiation.

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Saint Louis, MO (US)

I applied online - interviewed at The Home Depot in July 2014.

Interview Details Process started with automated phone questions which anyone could answer. Then I was transfered to a live person who asked me several more questions. I was told after answering the questions that I had passed that portion of the interview process. Then that live person scheduled a face to face interview at the local Home Depot store. Face to face interview at store was with a woman who seemed like she could care less about me, the interview, or her job. The interviewer did no make eye contact with me, she seemed distracted, and was unprofessional. She gave me very little information and did not explain to me the purpose for, or the reason why, she was requesting certain information from me. The interview lasted about ten minutes. Two weeks passed and I got a call from the lady who interviewed me requesting that I provide a state I.D. in order for them to run a background check. I was asked at that time if I was still interested in a position at Home Depot. I was told that the position I applied for was no longer available but they were considering me for other positions but did not tell me which ones.

Interview Question – There were no difficult questions or unexpected questions.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – After face to face interview at the store I decided that it was not a work environment that I wanted to be a part of.

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Alton, IL (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at The Home Depot in February 2010.

Interview Details Short phone interview, In person interview, and drug screening directly after...very slow to call though...very slow to get me in for initial training...then you spend a couple weeks doing "Rapid Web Based Training" Depending on your position you might have more or less training to do. Aside from that it was just paperwork and waiting three weeks for the drug screening results

Interview Question – None...All of the questions were simple and easy, Like If you were in this situation what would you do, Is stealing okay, or Tell me about a situation where you had to deal with this or that   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Zero negotiation possible just take it or leave it at 8.35

Cashier

I applied online - interviewed at The Home Depot in September 2013.

Interview Details They asked a lot of basic questions about experience with customer service, how I could handle it when we get long lines, blah blah, it was honestly all very basic customer service questions. They don't ask you if you know about hardware or lumber or anything I don't think they really care.

Interview Question – There were no mind blowing questions. Maybe the most difficult I guess was what are your weaknesses? idk..   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The rate will be 9.75, do you accept? lol.
