Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Temecula, CA (US)
Anonymous Employee in Temecula, CA (US)
Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at The Home Depot in July 2014.

Interview Details

After going through an absolutely ridiculous online application process in which I was not really sure if my application was initially submitted...I got a phone call the SAME morning I was emailed to be notified I would be receiving the call. They did not even mention an exact time, just a time frame of 4 hours.

Interview Questions
  • What was unexpected is that I could not really understand the person doing the interview so most of the time I was guessing the questions and everything she was saying....I am not a racist person nor judgmental in any way except in emergency situations. I believe it was unfair to have someone with an extremely strong accent to interview people for HOME DEPOT....if I was able to actually talk to the person rather than be drilled like I was a criminal I am sure I would have been working there by now. How hard is it to scan products and help people people I have THREE CHILDREN AND KNOW PLENTY ABOUT HELPING AND SCANNING :)   Answer Question

    I interviewed online. 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 Questions
    • 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

    Application Details

    I interviewed 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.

    I interviewed 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.

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

    Interview Details

    I got hired on the spot, which was very unexpected. I had 24 hours to take the drug test and I took it immediately after the interview. My interviewer didn't seem like someone who judges off of stupid things such as eye contact. She said I had a great attitude and she believed I would be a good employee for The Home Depot. I am a recent college graduate with a bachelors degree in Business Administration. I believe it helped her decision to hire me knowing that I wouldn't be taking more classes in the fall because I am done with college and my availability is open. They do work with you if you do have take classes.
