protective and alright job
Lot associate/Lumber (Former Employee), London, ONJuly 24, 2014
What i did at Home Depot was loading customers vehicles correctly And working lumber isle and saw.

I learned a lot about lumber sizes and specs and workplace safety, also how to correctly load costumers vehicles.

I felt that the managers and head cashiers were really unfair and felt like they where better then us lower positioned workers. I also felt – more... like we were getting under paid as we worked full time hours but was employed as part time.also had no say in how many hows you were able to work, even if you had an appointment.

there was no challenge working at home depot

the most enjoyable part was i worked with a lot of friends. – less

not a bad company to work for
Night Crew (Former Employee), Calgary, ABJuly 24, 2014
Pros: independent work
Cons: wages
it's your typical night crew "box on shelf" job.Didn't really learn anything noteworthy. Management was good, but if your employees don't agree with the store's choice on who the new night crew manager is it will affect production, and employees might end up quitting. A night crew manager should be working like the rest of us, not walking around, and – more... monitoring us. At most, all they should do is say: hey, i got a pallet of (whatever) in Aisle X when you're done with that one. That's about all we need, that bit of direction, otherwise, we'd just grab whatever would be easy to put out. Co-workers were all great to work with. Hardest part was keeping up with the volume of merchandise that came in. The most enjoyable was when we put in place an organization system that VASTLY improved the productivity. – less

Overnight Frieght Team Associate (Current Employee), Coquitlam, BCJuly 21, 2014
Pros: part time hours.
Cons: there aren't any in my view.
I feel working for the Home Depot would be a very valuable experience for me personally. The Home Depot is a large successful company that will be around for a long time. The Home Depot has a lot to offer. Stability and the opportunity to learn and advance. It would appear that hard work and dedication would be and is recognized by the number of stores – more... and the great service I have received as a customer. For these reasons I feel strongly about joining the company and contributing to the future success of the Home Depot. – less

Lot/Seasonal Associate (Current Employee), Burlington, ONJuly 17, 2014
As a Lot Associate it was my responsibility to make sure that the car lot, as well as the front apron was kept neat, tidy, and free of any carts and garbage. Also, if a customer required assistance with something they had just bought, it was my responsibility to make sure they had help getting it into their vehicle.

As a Seasonal Associate it was my – more... responsibility to make sure that customers got the information and help they needed when purchasing an item from the seasonal department. Also, it was my responsibility to make sure there was enough product on the floor for customers and do pack down if this was not the case. – less

Retail Environment, many products to learn applications
Co-op Student (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJuly 17, 2014
Pros: co-op position, ability to observe most store functions, and take part in them.
Cons: no pay
I worked here as a co-op student. My typical work day involved me re-organizing products and helping customers find the best product for them.

I learned much of how the retail environment functions. I've worked in every department to learn their products and which ones would suit a homeowners and a contractor.

Management was great, they handled all – more... my questions when necessary.

Co-workers were very fun to work with, working in pairs sometimes to handle a customers needs can prove more fun and also builds customer appreciation.

Hardest part of the job was handling many customers questions at once.

Most enjoyable part of my job was the flexibility of my position, which allowed me to never be still,it deepened my understanding of the retail industry. I always had my hands full helping co-workers around the store, learning about what needs the departments had which weren't being fulfilled and being able to take care of the minimal duties which improved the quality of service given by my co-workers. – less

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Brantford, ONJuly 15, 2014
Home Depot is a really exciting and fun environment. As a cashier, I was previously trained through other part time cashier jobs, when I was trained at Home Depot, they made it their mission to have every customer leave satisfied. I really enjoyed working at the lumber doors, dealing with the contractors and construction workers.

Productive workplace with a comforting breakroom
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJuly 8, 2014
Cons: long hours with a mandatory one-hour long lunch
Work usually involves attending to customers' needs and requires a fair deal of technical expertise or knowledge considering many customers' inquiries are related to home improvement. Management is straightforward and co-workers get along with each other just fine. However the major drawback is that for a new associate it may be quite hard for them – more... to attend to every customers' demand for that you're put into one department of the store and customers usually expect you to know the answer to their questions regardless. – less

Unexceptional
Cashier Associate (Former Employee), Front EndJuly 3, 2014

Did not respect personal needs, such as (doctor appointed) sitting for pain control. Management was very selfish and could care less if you had an emergency.
Most of the co-workers (same level) were friendly.
