It was very physically demanding but I enjoyed my work!
Freight Department (Former Employee), LeasideMay 7, 2014
Pros: free lunches and bbq's sometimes
I was in charge of stocking the "million dollar aisle," and lighting aisles.
I kept very busy unloading product, stocking shelves and doing pack-down.
Management was supportive and although coworkers worked in different areas I helped when I could.
It was a very friendly environment and we did our job to the best of our ability.

Easy and enjoyable work. Always busy resulting in short days.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONMay 6, 2014
Pros: relatively easy work, consistent hours, friendly environment.
Cons: wandering around looking for costumers can be dry on some days.
Home depot was as good as a retail job can be. I worked out in the stone yard and I enjoyed the manual labor. I enjoy helping people and I dislike selling something that someone doesn't need. This was not a huge issue at Home Depot particularly as their policy is to drop everything and help the customer.

Typical home renovation retail environment
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Belleville, ON; Ottawa, ONMay 6, 2014
Pros: competitive pay, benefit coverage, interesting coworkers
Cons: frequently understaffed, supply issues
A typical day at Home depot usually starts with safety and walking your department. Then you restock the shelves and set up displays until prime shopping time, while serving customers. During the prime shopping time, the focus is only on getting the customers all of the things they will need for their projects.
I have learned a lot about construction – more... and home renovation projects.
The coworkers were great, very accommodating and willing to share their knowledge and experiences.
Management is typical in retail, they are human and try to get what they can done with the time and resources they have available.
The hardest part of the job is trying to get exactly what the customers need for their project when they have very limited time lines and budgets.
The most enjoyable part of the job is working with coworkers and seeing a customer's project come to fruition. – less

Productive friendly environment
Labourer (Former Employee), Saint John, NBMay 6, 2014
Pros: bonus check every 6 months
Cons: part time
Start your shift, help customers find what they need to get their project off the ground.
there is so much in the store to learn about that you are continuously learning.
If you have an issue helping a customer, the staff are more than willing to help you and teach you what you need to know to help future customers.
The Management is great they are – more... more than willing to help you when you need it and answer any questions you may have.
The hardest part of the job is trying to keep up your knowledge of the products.
Best part of the job is knowing that any time you need assistance there are many people to ask for help. – less

Ok to work if you are a student
Head Cashier (Former Employee), White Rock, BCMay 5, 2014
Overall I felt like I worked really hard and did not have full recognition for the work I did for them. I was able to move up very quickly and once I moved up my manager did not recognize fully all the work i did. I think that this is a good company overall but some locations have managers that could use some help in becoming better managers. Overall – more... I think think this was a good experience for me and it helped be determine what I want and don't want within an employer. – less

Great place to work!
Cashier (Former Employee), Pickering, ONMay 2, 2014
A typical day at work consisted of interacting with all kinds of people; contractors, mothers, elderly etc. As a cashier you learn how to put the customer first always and the importance of great customer service. Many different people came through the store everyday and sometimes you are the first or last person they see. Making good impressions are – more... important. I feel like there is nothing special to say about the management, that being said because it seemed like all the other places I worked. This is not a bad thing most of the management I have been under are great people! The hardest part of my job was down times. Most of the times you would get alot of things done like cleaning the registers and sweeping. There is only so much of that you can do when you cant move away from your cash. Things a little boring without customers! I enjoy getting a chance to interact with all kinds of people, helping solving their problems gives you a great feeling of accomplishment! – less

Enjoy being exploited
Seasonal Sales/Lot Associate (Former Employee), PeterboroughMay 1, 2014
Pros: paid 15 minute breaks
Cons: no hours, constant abuse by customers, lack of management support, no oppertunity for advancement.
A typical day of work at The Home Depot consisted of being demeaned at every possible interval. I would consistently sell upwards of $10, 000 per day, and wound up making just over $11 per hour after 3 loyal years of customer service. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with customers and gaining knowledge of a diverse range of products, – more... but that doesn't compensate for being treated like disposable trash. Management is by far the worst part. I suppose working at The Home Depot is better than being unemployed, but after being bullied into quitting as a result of a serious injury, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. There is little to no respect for employees, and often management would go out of their way to sabotage your attempts at advancement. Do not apply to the Home Depot unless you want to work too hard for no money with no possibility for advancement. – less

Millwork Assossiate (Current Employee), Oakville, ONMay 1, 2014
Home depot provided me with additional knowledge in my field of study while providing a means to support my financials.
Management and co-workers are kind and friendly. The hardest part of the job is when there are many customers looking for assistance and you must meet all their needs quickly in a positive manner. The most enjoyable part of the job – more... is being able to help a customer understand the solutions to their inquiries. – less

Fun workplace with learning opportunuties
Sales associate (Former Employee), Calgary, ABApril 29, 2014
Pros: learned a lot
Cons: rigid hours for students
A typical day would involve taking inventory of products and customer service. I was in the paint department so most of my knowledge involves paint products and proper procedure when painting. My co-workers varied from fellow university students to retired career workers. The hardest part of the job was customer service during the busy months of summer, – more... i.e. trying to help everyone in an orderly fashion. – less
