If you enjoy meeting people this is the place to be.
Pros: When a project is done and the customer is thrilled with the end result.
Cons: Unfortuneatly Home Depot does not pay well. We lose a lot good people based on that reason alone.
As a pro associate my job is to interact with customers/contractors. I must deal with all situations in the store, every department. I assist in helping customers with large projects such basement renovations or building deck and fences, also responsible for deck and fence designs.
What is rewarding is when a project comes together, not just the sale, but what I may have learned during this project and customer satisfaction, the end result.
What also helps are the associates I work with, they are helpful and fun to be with.
As I have been at HD for almost two years, I have only work as a pro associate since November 2014. Since I do not have a background in construction it can sometimes be difficult to help the customers. But I ask a lot of questions and I always find an answer.
