I was an HR Manager a HD for two years. I worked 50-70 hours a week doing HR, then they asked the HRs to work stocking shelves for one day a week extra. The training is very good at HD but many managers fake the training records to help thier bonus. One store faked most of the training to save on labor costs. The corporate office ran all the adds, most of the time the hiring manager did not even know about that the add was running.

So the best way to get an interview is to go directly to the store and apply? Or should you do an online application and go to the store as well?

I'd say nobody is paying attention to these ads. I've replied to several, some more than once and have never heard anything. Yet the same ones keep being posted.

I think they promote from within but constantly fish for new applicants at the same time.

Doing an online is a waste of time. I applied online several weeks ago and have seen several ads run for the same store. Never got a call, e-mail, snail mail, nothing.

I applied for a Customer Desk spot. The store in Claremont NH had no idea what the position was or why it was open. They insisted I apply via Corprate and I never heard a thing. Maybe now that they have paid the former CEO 217 Million to leave things will get better.

Indeed has taken a look at your concerns over the outdated Home Depot job listings. They have removed the outdated Home Depot listings and have put measures in place so they do not return.

I don't think so. I search for "(linux or perl)" in my zip code. I constantly get back the result "Sales Associate (Full Time) - Home Decorators Collection - new, Home Depot (164 comments) - my town".

First of all, there *is* no Home Depot in my small rural town. The closest one is 40 minutes away on the Interstate - but the results says there's one in the zip code I search for. When I click the ad, it's actually in a similarly named city - but I'm searching based on zip code, not city name.

Second, selling home furnishings does not in any way related to Unix systems administration. Neither of my keywords are actually in the ad. They're clearly just spamming with every possible keyword imaginable, which I find appalling.

I applied for the HD Leadership training program. I was contacted by their HR (a recruitment/placement company), completed an interview with them and had my resume passed on to HD.
I have extensive business background and an MBA, yet they (HD) emailed me and said that I didn't qualify and that they had other "better" contacts.
I don't know what is going on over their or who is making the decisions, but I was very much qualified and am very frustrated that they didn't even give me a single in person interview.
Further, they continue to post job opening for Store Manager and Assistant Store Manager for all the stores in the Portland, Oregon region. Are they firing all their Managers in all the stores? Strange.

Isn't that exactly the sort of employer you'd want to work for? A company who makes every effort to promote from within? Wouldn't you want your hard work and dedication to be rewarded by increased pay and responsibility? It seems to me that Home Depot is doing exactly what they should be doing.

Sounds like you wave a little too much flag for Homely Depot. Maybe you aren't the un-biased respondent you pretend to be. I applied online to HD and at the end of their application they ask for your date of birth. Now, I thought that HD of a lot of large corporations might be a little more age friendly but.... I guess not. Also, the store in Bastrop. Texas never, never has enough staff to help. And I have never been asked if I could be helped. So keep your pitiful little comments for someone who hasn't dealt with the likes of HD and their incompetent CEO's who take millions when they are asked to leave.

While I must agree that our previous CEO was a thief and our current one isn't much better, you are incorrect re:DOB. The HD must make sure its applicants are over 18 years of age, also when applications are viewed by the HR for considerationf for interviews age/DOB are not visible. The question "Are you over the age of 18?" is however. Reasons people may not be called are the hours they make themselves available, if they passed the test during the online appl, and pay. Also, sometimes stores are hiring b/c they are under hours/understaffed and lets say they hire 4FT assoc you just added 160hrs of payroll to your week that your SM didn't forecast 2-3wks before & you are now running over hours. If your store is not meeting sales plan, which most are not given our current recession in the works then your lucky if they drop your sales plan and you are screwed with staffing issues. It's not easy and if current associates have to open their availability up & be fully flex do you think it's fair to hire someone who wants a wknd day off. Our associates don't get a whole wknd off unless they request it. The "Business Needs" crap.
