Top Five Tips to Nail Your In-Store Interview

February 14, 2020

If you like the idea of working with your hands, helping others, great benefits and the opportunity to give back to your community, we think orange may be your color. More than 80,000 associates will join our orange-blooded family this spring, and we have five tips to help you nail the interview at your local store. 

Operating big stores is a part of our history, but we recognize that they can be a bit of a maze for fresh eyes. Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early to navigate your local store for the interview.  

Dress your best but remember we’re a casual company. Our job is to help doers get more done, and store associates often wear clothes they’re comfortable to work in.  

We have associates from every walk of life in our stores, and we want to get to know you – so help us. Share answers that get your personality and experience across. 

The interview is the time to get to know The Home Depot as well. Ask us questions about what benefits you’ll receive on day one, the value we place on teamwork and our orange-blooded culture. 

We have more than 2,000 stores across the U.S. and thousands of open roles as of February 2020. If you don’t hear back from one interview, submit a new application at to apply for a different store or role.
