All applications are subject to an internal assessment program to determine core competencies. Your resume will be reviewed, and if it matches the position requirements you’ll be contacted within a couple of weeks to set up an interview.

Best thing to do in an Interview

Because they ask behaviour-based questions – “Tell me about a time when you demonstrated X behaviour” – your best bet is to go in prepared with concrete examples of why you’d be awesome at the job you’re applying for. If your answers are thoughtful and specific, the hiring team will be impressed.

Worst thing to do in an Interview

Just because you’ll be working at a home improvement centre doesn’t mean you should show up in ripped jeans.

Why you’ll stay

Employee culture is fun and open, and if you truly do have a passion for retail, there’s lots of room for advancement at The Home Depot Canada.

Why you’ll bail

It’s a hands-on, big box store environment where customers are number one. If you like wearing designer clothes to work, or don’t enjoy working with wood and paint and drywall, this probably isn’t the right environment for you.

Support is available every step of the way, and because an intimate knowledge of store-level business is so important to upper-level positions, you’ll be positioned to work your way up in a way that’s unique among retail jobs.
