Unit 6 Project 2 Unit 6 Project: Home Depot Interview Interview Hiring Manager (HM): Good morning. You: Good morning! I know it’s only 9:45 am, but I’m really excited about the interview and appreciate your meeting with me. I can’t wait to discuss this opportunity and my qualifications in more detail. I can wait here in the lobby until you’re ready. HM: I am glad you could join me today. I see from your resume that you have experience in this industry. Tell me how your past work experience at Lowe’s has prepared you for the position here at Home Depot. You: During my 5 years at Lowes, I started as a cashier and had the privilege of teaching “Build and Grow” clinics (“Lowe’s build and grow,”) a few times a year in which I instructed and helped children to build wooden projects which led to parents asking for advice and input. I enjoyed teaching others how to build and do other types of projects so much that I pursued other in-house opportunities and was able to work in every department from appliances to windows and including the garden center (“Lowe’s departments”). In those departments I had the pleasure of helping customers find the best products and even helped some choose projects within their budget to improve their homes. I also assisted them with instructions on how to fix mistakes and/ or problems in almost every home improvement situation you can think of. Being able to work for a company with such diverse job opportunities and duties allows me to constantly learn about new products and different types of projects making me a well-rounded home improver and employee in the industry; I feel that a supervisory position is the perfect and natural next step up for my career. HM: Working at night is a bit different than working in the daytime. Describe some work experiences you have had while working at night that demonstrate the difference between nighttime and daytime work. You: The store is open to customers Monday through Saturday from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm, and Sundays 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, (“Lowe’s of newark,”) so my hours of interaction with customers are short being on the night shift. Safety is always a priority, but nights, since there are no customers in the store, are a better time to take down and/or set up displays of merchandise, secure larger merchandise such as lawn mowers and weed trimmers or ladders that are often displayed on shelves. These things are better done at night so as not to fall and injure shopping
