I was persistant with this job also but management was busy most of the time to give adequate training for our department. The key for this job I feel was to be a self motivator. Ask to take additional classes to learn new products and give excelent customer service.

What's the secret to getting hired at The Home Depot?

The secret to getting hired at The Home Depot is exhibiting strong relationship building and communication skills. These traits coupled with a strong memory and an intense desire to lead and learn make everyday an experience. Although experience in home improvement and construction methods is a plus, there is an extensive in-house training program to get anyone qualified to reccomend the right product or offer advice.

Math is a plus too, because there are several measurement techinques that are used in everything from square footage to volume to voltage.

Flexibility is another great virtue anyone desiring to be considered should possess. Both in time and ability, there have been numerous times I have been called in or called upon by members of the management team that are confident in my abilities.

Although there are many routine problems faced at The Home Depot everyday, I have found that one learns the most qualitative knowledge from the minority of them that present unique and complex situations. Patience is definately a virtue, but overwhelming brightness and genuine courtesy in the face of adversity are even better.

And if you REALLY want to succeed at The Home Depot, be an ultimate self-starter. By recognizing problems and solving them early to meet S.O.P., management will have no choice but to recognize the value you bring to their operations. (Doesn't everyone want to work with the guy that makes their job easier?)

Finally, as with any person that really wants to achieve more in their lifetime, a unquenchable thirst for self-improvement must dominate. Making everyday better than the last is the key to success--and in my opinion, life!

What's the secret to getting hired at The Home Depot?

You have to be a real TEAM PLAYER. You have to be hard working and be dedicated. It doesn't take much to get hired just be yourself and be honest. If hard work, being a team player, being dedicated, and helping customers is too hard, then you need not apply.
