Have you ever worked on a house before? What was your project?

Answer examples and advice for how to answer this interview question for a Menards interview

Advice
Think about a recent home project you have done. This can be anything from remodeling your home to putting on new light plate covers or painting in your apartment. Tell the interviewer, "Yes, I have!" Follow this with a high-level overview of what project you tackled. If you have any class work or job training in any home improvement scenario, be sure to mention that as well! If you have no experience, be sure to have a good reason why you may not. Example: 'I recently purchased my house with my wife last week, and I am eager to get a jump start on new projects. Prior to this house, we rented for five years, and no maintenance was required.'
Basic answer example
"Yes, I have!"
