You can apply for a job at Home Depot by completing an in-store or online application. Carefully fill in your personal information and any relevant previous retail or home improvement experience.Expect three basic assessment tests to follow the submission of your application. Kenexa Prove It has developed a specific test battery known as Home Depot Retail Management Assessment (RMA). The aim of the Home Depot RMA is to match a specific position with the employee that best fits the parameters of the job. If you pass all of these tests, you will be invited to a face-to-face interview. The interview will conclude the application process and determine if you will start to work at Home Depot.

Pre-Interview Screening Tests

The Home Depot pre-interview screening tests examine skills and experience, self-assessment, and basic math concepts.

  1. Skills and Experience – This test is comprised of 50 questions. Answer each question by reflecting on what you would want to see in an employee if you were the employer. The skills assessment highlights applicants who have retail experience and knowledge of home improvement equipment. You will rank your ability to perform fundamental tasks, such as using a cash register, by means of a five-category format from Beginner to Expert. Your answers on this assessment can help convince Home Depot that you are knowledgeable and passionate about home improvement.
  2. Personality Test – Work habits and employment attitudes are the focus of the second assessment exam. Multiple choice questions dominate the personality test, - a test JobTestPrep knows very well. Each question contains a statement describing a workplace behavior or attitude and is followed by five responses. Pick the response that best reflects the degree to which the initial statement applies to you. Keep in mind that Home Depot is looking for employees who are loyal to the company, patient and helpful with customers, cooperative with co-workers, honest, dependable and pleasant. If the initial statement contains positive work traits, you want to choose the “strongly agree” option, indicating that the statement is an accurate reflection of your own attitude or behavior. Likewise, if the scenario contains negative employment traits, “strongly disagree” may be your best option.
  3. Basic Math Concepts – On the Home Depot math test you will find word problems that require mathematical reasoning and calculations at the junior high level. You can prepare for the Home Depot math exam as well as the other two assessments with JobTestPrep! Practice tests, along with an in-depth analysis of exam formats and questions are key to walking into your Home Depot assessment test with confidence. We offer a thorough pre-employment exam preparation package guaranteed to help you pass the Home Depot assessment test.

Face-to-Face Interview

The focus of your face-to-face interview is on actual job situations and how you would handle them. Your answers should contain specific and relevant examples from past experiences, both professional and personal. Home Depot is not looking for hypothetical responses.

Keep your answers detailed and concise. Utilize the following format throughout the course of your interview:

  • Situation
  • Action
  • Result

When responding to one of the interviewer's questions with a particular previous experience, quickly state the situation, the action you took to alleviate the problem, and most importantly, the positive outcome that resulted from your actions.
