Great place to work and easy advancement
Head Cashier (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CASeptember 11, 2014
Pros: free lunches on holidays, always rewarded when you go above and beyond
Cons: long lunches
A typical day at work was seeing my coworkers smile and greet each other, Count my tills and greet the customers especially the usual customers. Management relied on me to meet credit goal and make sure our numbers were high. The hardest part was returns because some returns were denied and i wasn't able to help satisfy the customer. I enjoyed every – more... aspect of my job. – less

Cashier (Current Employee), Lancaster, CASeptember 11, 2014
Like another retail job. Just a cashier, get pressed to sell credit cards. A lot of computer training not so much hands on, kind of just get thrown into the fire. Manager and coworkers and extremely friend. The departments take forever to help the cashiers with skus and price checks.

I LEARNED THAT DIFFERENT COMPANIES HAD DIFFERENT SETUPS FOR THEIR PRODUCTS AND THAT CUSTOMERS – more... CAME FIRST ALWAYS!

I learned a lot in retail
Garden Supervisor (Former Employee), Boulder, COSeptember 10, 2014
Pros: i got to learn a lot about business
Cons: retail is a tough buisness
I learned a lot about business working for Home Depot. I started at the bottom and worked my way up the corporate ladder. I started as a cashier in 2005 while I was working on my Masters Degree and six years later I was managing the largest department in the store. Home Depot allowed me to run as a supervisor and I was able to learn all aspects of the – more... business.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the customer service. I really enjoyed getting to know the community and to be able to help them with their projects was fun. – less

It really is what you make of it
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Bethesda, MDSeptember 10, 2014
Pros: benefits are decent: health, 401k, roth ira, employee stock purchase program, very flexible with part timers; opportunity to advance if you show and prove, and make it known that you want to advance
Cons: full-timers may not care for schedules too much, may get a closing shift followed by and opening shift; some of the employees can be toxic, just stay away;
You can start out as an associate in the lot and become a VP one day, if you are smart; have ambition; and are willing to make a commitment to this company. The company has great core values that one could live their life by, if you follow those core values you will make out just fine. You meet a lot of interesting people customers and associates alike. – more... And I believe, like any job it really is what you make of it. If you have a good attitude, and deliver outstanding customer service your day will go by smoothly and you will begin to make strides. Or if you want to just show up and do the bare minimum, some do get away with it for a while, but they are only hurting themselves the company and most importantly the customer. – less

Appliance Specialist/ Paint Dept. Sales Associate (Former Employee), NJSeptember 10, 2014
Pros: decent pay, benefits and employee stock purchase plan
Cons: varied schedules..early, mid and late shifts...hard to plan family time
I have met so many wonderful people while working for The Home Depot. Customers and employees made your day go so fast. People enjoy your assistance and come back again and again to find you to help them with their next project. You work hard but the rewards are worth it. Customers write letters thanking you and that simply makes your day.
