Lumber Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee
Homewood, IL (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Home Depot in May 2011.

Interview Details The application was a simple 20 minute endeavor, and the phone interview came not long after that. They asked me simple questions to verify points made on my application such as the ability to translate Spanish, my math skills, and problem solving techniques. However, it took some finagling to get the in person interview. I went into the store in person to seek out the hiring manager, and from there, she decided to schedule an interview. My interviewer was an ASM named Dan Pryor, who now is another THD location, he was very personable and easygoing, which made me feel comfortable.

Interview Question – How would you go about handling a situation in which you were to work with another associate who may have a bad attitude towards you or is very quiet?   Answer Question
