I applied online - interviewed at Home Depot in February 2014.

Interview Details The interview process was question and answering. The hiring process was a background check and a drug test. I thought the process went well. The interviewer was very professional. Took me to meet the manager and told the manager that I meet all qualification for the job and was given paperwork for the drug test.

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Home Depot.

Interview Details It was a very pleasant interview and I only had one with the Store Manager, she explained what is expected of the part time cashiers from a customer service standpoint very well and she explained the Home Deport family values.

Interview Question – She did give me a couple of scenarios that may have been a bit tricky but are actually easy to answer, just be polite and direct the customer to management.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not too difficult

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Home Depot in February 2014.

Interview Details Applied online process is taking multiple weeks. received a call from an automated system within a week answered a few questions then scheduled an interview. After two weeks I was called up for a second interview but I was busy on the requested/available interview days so I was told to call up the next day and talk to the manager about scheduling an interview for when I was available. When I called up it went to voicemail every time I tried at different times during the day. I have never been able to get ahold of anyone in the HR department even when I go into the store and ask they seem to be out on lunch.

Interview Question – At the end of the day what would you enjoy the most about your work experience   View Answers (2)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Home Depot in July 2013.

Interview Details Applied online, was called within a few days of applying for a phone interview. I was asked a few very generic interview questions and then was scheduled a in-person interview at my local store. My interviewer was very welcoming and asked questions about my past experiences relating to the job and how I would/have acted in certain situations in the past. I was offered the job on the spot and accepted, pending a background/urine test. It took like 2-3 weeks for them to call to set up a orientation... I had called a couple of times wondering why it had been taking so long and they had told me they were waiting for the urine test.. I guess the wait is common in the company though.. Many others I work with had the same long wait.

Interview Question – Describe a time you went above and beyond for the customer.
What do you find most difficult about working in retail?
What makes you an asset to the team?
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No wage negotiation.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Home Depot in January 2014.

Interview Details I applied online. The online application asks you basic stuff in addition to questions where it asks you how you would respond to certain situations. If you do it correctly, someone from Home Depot will call you and ask you some follow up questions about past experiences/qualifications. If you pass that, they'll call you in for an interview, which was fairly easy. They give you basic interview questions and scenarios. Overall, I think it's pretty easy to get hired.

Interview Question – As a cashier, you are often the last associate a customer will interact with when they are finished shopping. How would you provide excellent customer service being the last associate that they see?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiations really. Starting pay is 9.75 and they'll start you off at maybe around 14-16 hours and then pick it up to 22-25 hours a week, with 28 hours being the max. Be prepared to give up your weekends because that's when they get really busy so you'll often be scheduled for at least 1 8 hour shift on the weekend.

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Home Depot in March 2013.

Interview Details -Applied online
-Get a phone call a day or two later (I got two separate phone calls about 2-3 days apart).
    -First you'll be answering to an answering machine; you'll answer by pressing "1" or "2 "
    -After you completed that, you'll be speaking with a live-person. They'll be asking you the basic interview questions
-After the second phone call, you'll set up an interview with the Home Depot you applied to with the live person
-Dress in business attire and you'll be interviewed by either the store manager or the assistant store manager
-If you get accepted, they'll give a referral to take a drug test
-It took about a month before I was officially part of the Home Depot franchise
-Good luck! If you show a lot of enthusiasm you're bound to get the job

Interview Question – None. They're pretty much asked the same questions as the phone interview   Answer Question
