Specialty Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee
New York, NY (US)

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

Interview Details Had a telephone interview first and then received a call back with a time and date for a face to face interview. I met with an assistant store manager who asked about my experience in retail sales and customer service. Of course I had been dealing with the public for a long time so that was not a problem for me and besides I like people. Other than that it was a straight forward interview with typcal questions like, why I wanted to work for Home Depot and what I thought I could bring to the team to help it or improve it.

Interview Question – Why should we hire you?   View Answer

Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and interviewed at Home Depot.

Interview Details Had a phone interview 3 - 4 weeks after applying online at about 6 different locations. Phone interview was short and simple. Called in 2-3 months later for in-store interview. This was more like a screening - very informal. Used a standard packet of 6-7questions and jotted down responses of one to two sentences. Did not take many notes at all. Workers came and went through the room during the whole process. Called in 2 days later for third and final interview with district manager. Told to come in two days later and that I needed to come in on that specific day. Manager was running 20 minutes late, so I had to sit around with nothing to do for 20 minutes in the work room. When we met for the interview, it was extremely short and simple. Just wanted to know if I could do the job, really wanted the job, and was capable. Lasted about 20 minutes or less.

Interview Question – Why should we hire you?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – no negotiating - except for days/times worked - but even that was discouraged
