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 Life
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

Lumber Associate - With some cash experience (Former Employee), Calgary, ABJune 29, 2014
Ok job while in high school.
Low wage with much more work to do than other usual jobs.
Fast paced and busy.

Management moves around too much and is very uncoordinated and things get messy.
