1. Be eager to learn. You might be thinking to yourself “I’ve never worked in retail” or “I’m not a home improvement expert.” Don’t worry! The Home Depot offers innovative training to make sure all associates are equipped to be experts in the aisle.

2. Exhibit excellent customer service skills. Customers are The Home Depot’s business. Associates go the extra mile to give customers exceptional service and knowledgeable advice, so be sure to share some examples of times when you’ve exhibited these skills.
