Great Community
Cashier (Former Employee), Peterborough, ONOctober 6, 2015
Home Depot has a great social committee that frequently plans fun events. At least once per month they cook breakfast, bring in baked goods, etc. They also do their best to get to know you as an individual.

As a part-timer, partial health benefits are offered after three months. Also, with Success Sharing, there is bonus money given in each quarter.

If you are a student, they also offer financial assistance with schooling.

As a cashier, your hours can vary drastically. The hours are often very poor in the winter.

Customers are the rudest at Home Depot than I have ever encountered, but the staff makes up for that.

Overall, it is a great place to work.

Lazy Team
Lumber/Millwork Associate (Former Employee), Bradford ONOctober 2, 2015
Pros: Nice staff room, with a lot of luncheons.
Cons: Poor management, lazy crew.
Basically as any of the customers can attest at this store, you basically work alone, while constantly being harassed over the walkie.

A place that was decent to work for but the co-workers made it more enjoyable
Paint Associate (Former Employee), Calgary, ABOctober 2, 2015
The home depot did not have good management while i was working there. it was difficult to do my job sometimes when the management was coming in and observing the department i was working in. My co-workers were fun to work with so that made it difficult to leave the job. The hardest part of the job was how busy the department was during the summer because we were understaffed a lot of the time. The most enjoyable part of my job was helping the customers find exactly what they needed.

Great People. Abysmal Pay.
Flooring Associate (Former Employee), Courtenay, BCSeptember 29, 2015
Pros: Great People. Reputable company.
Cons: Very Low Pay
Overall, the People make it a great place to work. Home depot places a lot of emphasis on training to make sure their associates can deliver exceptional service. If only they would realize that offering only part time hours on an irregular shedule, for a wage that leaves most struggling to just survive, should be considered criminal. Pay should be Minimum $12.50 for general employees, and $15 to $18 for specialty/ consultation departments. ALL part time should be offered minimum 24 hours per week, before additional staff are hired. The company is greedy.

Coworkers are fun to work with, managment was a joke
freight associate (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABSeptember 29, 2015
My fellow employees where a blast to with, the management had a higher turn over of the company. There was too much people aiming to get other people fired just to advance there position even if the people getting fired where more experienced and doing an excellent job.

The pay for the kind of work i was doing was very imbalanced. i was getting higher pay wage than other retail stores but way less than other warehouse company's.
