I arrived at the Home Depot in Salinas, Calif. 10 minutes prior to my interview appointment time and checked in at the Return Counter as I had been instructed. I was a bit nervous, of course -- I hadn't interviewed for a job in over 30 years.
A former self-employed general contractor in my first year of retirement, I found (like many new retirees) that I still craved the daily routine of getting out of bed and heading off to bring home the bacon. So I had applied at the Home Depot, in search of gainful employment. I was pleasantly surprised when I received a phone call inviting me to interview.
