Home Depot continue to post jobs but never replys

Well, I don't think indeed can make Home Depot's hiring department not suck.

If home depot is really that bad, then who's better to work for in the industry?

Have you noticed how long some of these jobs stay posted? This Sr. Global Compliance job has been online since sometime in October. There is another job for another company that has been online since October too, yet they continue to show up as "new". Makes you wonder what's going on. After having interviewed for a similar position with HD several years ago, never receiving a reply and watching the job continue to be posted for almost 6 months, I wouldn't apply for another one.

It's Indeed's policy to only keep job listings for 30 days. Which job (job title, company, location) did you find that's been there since October?

The Sr. Import Compliance job has been posted, reposted and updated on various sites that apparently get picked up by indeed.com

It was listed on the job board at www.aaei.org sometime before Nov. 21.

They just keep updating it so that it looks new. Latest update on the Home Depot site is 12/1. Just watch and see how long it continues to be posted.

I see certain EDI Jobs that are constantly posted. I do a search for EDI Manager on Indeed.com every day, and there are constantly Home Depot jobs. One might assume that it's either a lousy place to work, the pay is real low, or they are not real openings.

I know someone who spent time at corporate IT who said it was a nice place to work, but these constant job openings have me concerned, so I didn't upload a resume.

If they keep updating the job posting that could very well be the reason why. We'll look into it.

The problem is Human Resources, they require them to handle all aspects of HR with little or no help. No one wants to work in HR because it is not a true HR job

Home Depot has a third party screen applications. Theye call you if you fit the job. And then the management interview process is very intense. I didn't like their style of interviewing. Five hours of testing and interviews. Don't bother.

i currently work for HD, and know that through the interview process for the Addison Call Center, Home Depot does not conduct the interviews. A staffing company named Spherion interviews qualified candidates and informs you if an offer is going to be extended.

I've submitted several applications to Home Depot for job openings, and never a response from the company. How difficult is it for a company to send a "No Thank You" letter or e-mail these days? The company's attitude toward projecting a positive recruiting image is one of the worst I've seen.

I agree with you! It is easy to set up an autoresponder which says thank you for your reply...if your qualifications match...

Yes, I interviewed there about 4 years ago. It seemed like a nice place. Interviewed with 3 or 4 people. Met all of their criteria, yet never received any response as to why they continued to post the job for months after I interviewed. I emailed the people I interviewed with asking what I could have done differently, etc. in order to be their #1 pick. No response. Maybe with the resignation of the Top Dog, things will change, but I won't apply again.

I have applied for at least a half dozen Home Depot job postings on Indeed.com and have never received a reply. I have also applied directly to Home Depot via their website and never received a reply. Home Depot should not be allowed to post jobs on Indeed.com. This lack of response really makes me wonder about Home Depot as a whole, especially when the just gave their outgoing CEO millions of dollars and their stock is not performing.

Let me tell you about my experience with Home Depot. First, after the initial interview took about a month to set up in-person interviews. Then they flew me in to Atlanta to interview. Had several interviews set up and then was told in the middle of my second interview that the manager of the department had a schedule "snafu" and would be unable to meet with me. After requesting a phone interview because this would be one of the three persons making a decison on the job, was told they would try. Two days later I got an e-mail thanking me and saying the job had been filled. Why the hell fly me in and do that?
My impression -- nice people but a bunch of dolts when it comes to the hiring process!

I use to work at HD. I worked there for almost 17 years. About 5 years ago they desided to downsize and make it very hard on employees. All the experienced employees(like me) left. Now all the see in the stores are inexperienced young kids. I never go to HD to buy something, unless I can't get at another store. The reason most the jobs(they advertise) are never filled is because of the salaries they are paying or the workload for the jobs.Having one person doing the job that 3 people should be doing.

Roy,
I think most companies have done some type of downsizing since 9/11. From what I've seen in companies - one person doing the job of 2 or 3 is the standard. I'm thinking that when the gruop of very experienced workers with good work ethics retire and all companies have left to choose from are the inexperienced, those with poor work ethics and those of us they've tried to work to death that they will start treating us better because they will want better quality workers and we will be in a better position to not put up with the unreasonable demands of working 3 jobs for 1 salary. Good luck to all of you!

Home Depot pay poverty wages, does not want to hire anyone that has experience so their customer can be treated right, with the right answers.
Would encourage all people to not apply at any Home Depot in the nation
Applied on lime with no response, continue to post jobs, and never reply to say thank you for applying at Home Depot, your resume will be reviewed and we should if qualifications meet our expectations you will be notified.
Never a response, a very un-professional company.
Ever see many Lowes jobs posted, I do not, maybe that say something good about lowes

We must be twins. All I can add is that based on the number of jobs I see on these job boards is either that Home Depot just wants to get its name out there, or they are on a real hiring binge. Either way, when I applied it took them almost two months to contact me from the time I filled out a form on their website. They are woefully disorganized. I can only quote from a survey the London Financial Times did in 1989. “In a survey conducted some years ago among a dozen
top United Kingdom employers, it was discovered that
the chances of an employer finding a good employee
through the hiring-interview was only 3-percent better
than if they had picked a name out of a hat. In a
further ironic finding, it was discovered that if the
interview was conducted by someone who would be
working directly with the candidate, the success rate
dropped to 2 percent below that of picking a name out
of a hat. And, if the interview was conducted by a
so-called human resources expert, the success rate
dropped to 10 percent below that of picking a name out
of a hat.” That's from the London Financial Times as quoted in the book, "What Color is Your Parachute?"
I think that pretty much says it all.

I actually did interview for an open position recently. After the second interview I was told that I did not come across as a strong enough manager to be considered. Interesting enough every one who knows me tells me I should tone down my "maverick" personality and strong decision making tendency so I could get a better consensus and buy in before forging ahead. So they came away with a totally incorrect read on my personality. A previous poster was correct on the interview process. It is a pregenerated questionaire that asks situational and role playing questions, often with no "correct" answer. You are judged by the answers given to these canned situations. In no circumstance was any of my references contacted for an independant observation of my personality.

But, is any other interview process really any different? I can't say that Home Depot's process is really a bad thing. you have a shot to make an impression if you are asked to interview. That about all anyone is given. An no, I did not get the position.

If Depot is such a crappy employer, as you say. Then why are they the second largest retailer in the world!! and why do you keep applying? they have a brief test in the initial application process that weeds out the applicants like yourself, in which you did not pass.

Yes, INDEED!
HD went through this entire nationwide ad blasting campaign in late Nov./early Dec. They were all over the net and in most major and middle size newspapers for 45 days or more.
I decided to apply copiously , after applying locally and in the area, NEVER having gotten a yes/no/hello.
I applied for at least 100!!! of these driver positions, from california to colorado to wyoming to Texas and even a few down south.
I have heard nothing to date, and now HERE THEY GO AGAIN!
Frankly, I believe they are using the campaign to build up an email list as well as a snail mail address list of prospective customers, for their lame sales brochures.
Anybody feel the same about this? It's obviously not their main intent to hire anyone, they have probably collected tens of thousands of replies by now!

One doesn't have to be a great employer to be in the top retailers in the country. Being good or fair to employees isn't part of the criteria. Just look at #1 and all the bad press they get for not providing employee benefits,etc. yet people continue to shop there because the have the lowest prices and the most variety. "Crappy" employers can get by with being that way because of the lack of decent paying job. People will take a job with a "crappy" employer instead of letting their families go without and ruining their credit. One of these days, the tables will turn and the crappy employers will be left with the crappy employees if they don't shape up.

Been helping with job search for company members and friends for years. HD posts the same jobs over and over every 6 months or so the same jobs for warehouse/distribution/operations are lister. Submit resumes for guys with 15-20 years experience...never a response. A competitor of there's did reply to one...was so excited about candidate, they sent airline ticket overnight, rented him large SUV, gave 3 nights in a hotel. Raved about his experience, said his reputation was great, was excited to get him.....when he went to meet them, they all looked shocked...first comment to him was "we hired an old guy once". He never heard from them and they wouldnt return calls...he is 56...

Yes, I see a similar pattern.
I continue to believe that HD is only using this mass "hiring" campaign to build both email and snail mail lists for future sales efforts.
I have emailed HD investor relations asking for comment...no answer...
I have emailed the FTC requesting that they look into the possibility that HD is circumventing the no call/no junk mail laws by building a fresh list in this manner.

My neighbor laughed at this. He had 25 years experience and applied for a corporate job at HD. Showed me his resume and he fit the profile perfectly, except he was "older." He went for an interview and they wound up hiring some kid who was 30 with little experience! Don't tell me they are not discriminating when it comes to age.

Home depot is the worst company to work for. They only want people that are dummer than the person interviewing them. If they sense that you have more on the ball than they do then they do not want you. From what a friend says who works there act stupid and act like you will follow blind off of a clif and you can get on. I personally shop at Lowes.

Edward, David in Akron, Ohio

Have had help from a employment agency to enter the work force at HD. Ammazed; the store manager quickly set up an interview. - Well kind of. It was like pulling teeth. No sence of phone ediquite, had to ask what day, what time, whom should I report to. [ Hello! & they called me? ] With date finally set, and appointment kept.
Interview took about 25 minutes. The really distrubing thing that happened, was a phone call from a person asking about his/her interview. The manager told this person that the [ Company ] had a marker on their application as a > Non Re-hire.
Really think that a call back to this person should have been in place during another persons interview.
After, I was told that I would hear from them within the week. We double checked phone numbers. And I left.
Sounded hopeful.
So now more than a week has passed. And no call back. And after reading most of the postings here, aparently
this is a blessing in disguise and no suprise.
Finally. I should really hope that any employment agency and or your local State Employment Agency; have taken time to log onto this eye opening discussion page.
ps. We can all thank Ronald Regan, for screwing up the only thing that give you any voice in the new work place.
Dare I say it...... Unions.
