Very productive and fun workplace
Lot Associate (Former Employee), Cobourg, ONNovember 20, 2014
Everyday was different but it resulted in a good outcome. I got along with every associate and manager because we trusted each other's skills and personality. The hardest part of the job would be multi-tasking because there are some tasks that you have to do while you're already working on another one. The most enjoyable part of the job would be interacting – more... with the customers while you're assisting them with their product carry-outs because you can build a good reputation from not only the customers, but the associates and managers as well. What i've learned was that you should take your time with all of your tasks because trying to rush through them will be a lot more difficult to complete. – less

Great for Students
Merchandiser/RaymondReach Op (Former Employee), Woodbridge, ONNovember 16, 2014
Home depot is a great place for students or people who are first getting into the workforce because they have flexible hours and also help pay for university and college fees. So if you're a student who needs help paying the tuition fee, give home depot a shot. (They also have hours for night shift for those with a busy day.)

Baptism by fire
Tool Rental Associate II (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABNovember 10, 2014
I was tossed into the department in a baptism by fire style and had to work my first few day with food poisoning because they were so desperate for people to work.
A typical day at work (summer time) started the minute you walked into the department. Customers lined up at least 10 people deep when it was slow, don't even ask how crazy it was when it – more... was busy.
Breaks were hard to come by and more often than not we went without as there was simply no coverage.
My coworkers there were some of the best people I have had the privilage to work with however. Hard working and very dedicated to their jobs and customer service. – less

Good Learning Experience
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Calgary, ABNovember 4, 2014
Pros: good exposure.
Cons: far away from my place of residence
On a typical day at work I look out for customers in need of customer assistance, greet them in appropriate manner, listen to their requirements and understand their needs, suggest and help find customers different products for their projects. I also restock merchandise and make the shelves look organised.

I learn a lot about different electrical and – more... electronic products. This job has helped me learn how to serve different types of customer in rush hour which includes finding products for an electrician and helping a normal customer having less experience in electrical at the same time.

The management is above average and effective.

The co-workers are from different cultures and are very supportive.

The hardest part of the job is to deal with professional contractors and understanding their product requirements for complex projects which is also the most enjoyable part of the job as it makes me learn even more. – less

Lack of Care
Pro Account Sales Associate (Former Employee), Lloydminster, SKNovember 4, 2014
There was a distinct lack of care from the management that trickled down to all the employees. One of the last issues that I saw before leaving involved a fantastic young associate who was helping a customer with some wood stakes. It was after the man's shift had ended and he was no longer wearing his smock or steel toe shoes. The Opperations Assistant – more... Manager walked past him and said "Are you wearing steel toes? Are you still punched in?" and when the associate said "no" the Assistant Manager barked back, "then no helping!" and he stormed off.
I understand the liability issues at hand but at least he could have stopped to help the customer for the ten seconds it would have taken.
Worst part was, the store manager hadn't heard about the situation until I spoke to him two weeks later. Two more weeks past and nothing had been said to the associate or done about the Assistant Manager.
Just one example of the incompetence and indifference that was not only tolerated, but seemingly encouraged there. – less

Sales; recieving; shipping; stocking (Former Employee), winnipeg, MBNovember 2, 2014
They could ask you to work at any department any time and any how. they even send some people shovel the snow around the store during the winter.
and they don't want to pay more than the minimum wage.
the co-workers are careless.
the goal is to get the maximum off the workers without paying more than the minimum wage
