Horribly managed money hungry store
Building Materials and Lumber Associate (Former Employee), Toronto, OntarioDecember 30, 2014
As a part-time, shift are were very irregular, so work/life balance was horrible. Learned a lot about building materials. Management was horrible. Most coworkers are lazy. The hardest part of the job was "the customer is always right" and watching how managers let customers literally yell at your face.

Very good training but low on work-life balance
Seasonal Labourer (Former Employee), Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QCDecember 21, 2014
Cons: no full time positions ever available.
I don't know about how other home depot's work bt the one I worked at really didn't take into consideration I had 3 young kids at home and I couldn't make it in once in a while or I had to leave work early because the daycare worker couldnt handle the kids. But it didnt happen once a shift.. it happened maybe once or twice a month. That's still not that bad. But overall, good safety, good training, ok pay and good management skills.

It is a job, not a career
Associate (Current Employee), Westbank, BCDecember 19, 2014
Pros: free food on special days
Cons: schedules are not ever consistent, management reprimands you in front of customers, sometimes minimal staff due to staff members off sick, management has lied in order to fire people
Co-workers are excellent but management doesn't recognize them unless they are their favourites, safety standards are usually met but not always,there are games throughout the year to create incentives, the hardest part of the job would be the lack of training and hours to train. the most enjoyable part of the job is working with fellow associates and helping the customers

Machine Operator, Freight Associate (Former Employee), Calgary, ABDecember 16, 2014
Pros: profit share
Cons: lack of management leadership!!
Management was lacking, virtually non existent.
The most enjoyable part of this job was the customer base, and other staff members. A typical day would've been filled with customer questions, stocking product, and general job orientated duties.

Caissière (Former Employee), Boisbriand, QCDecember 12, 2014
Pros: l'ambiance et assurances
Cons: les horaires, avancement, le salaire etc
La caisse, rien de spécial . Les opportunités moyen. Le management correct. Collaborateurs très bon. L'aspect le plus difficile le non respect de promesses (le soir et fin de semaine très rare et les conges ensemble très rare aussi) Donc aucun vie social pour un poste : temps partial de 8 a 20 heures par semaine .

Lot Associate and Cashier (Former Employee), Oakville, ONDecember 9, 2014
Pros: enjoyable working atmosphere, resources readily available
Cons: hours aren't very flexible, may require heavy lifting
Home Depot is a well organized corporation that runs their stores pleasantly. The amount of work is fair and they supply their employees with the resources they need to get through their day smoothly. Back braces, steel toe boots, gloves, etc. can all be compensated after purchase and uniforms are practically given away (I still have 6 shirts and 3 aprons). Management is overall very fair. If you work hard you will be recognized and awarded with a "Homer Award". The hardest part of the job would be knowing your stuff. You will be taught what you need to know for your department but it's up to you to remember everything and apply the knowledge to customer needs. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the atmosphere created by the staff. It's almost like a 2nd family for those who aren't in it for the money.

Pretty decent
Cashier (Former Employee), MarkhamDecember 4, 2014
Pros: good coworkers and supervisors
Cons: sell, sell those credit cards and everything else in the store
Generally a pretty good place to work, managers and supervisors are understanding towards your situation and thus you can be civil about approaching them. However they always push for you to sell credit cards regardless of who you are and what depart you work at so watch out for that.

Overall a great place to work and build soft skills
Flooring/Decor Specialist (Current Employee), Pickering, ONNovember 25, 2014
Management is friendly; they get to know you which is great. You're not just another employee in a sea of faces

Coworkers are friendly. People you could hang out with outside of work.

Shifts are tailored to your schedule if necessary (great for students)

Every week there are fun activities planned by the social committee (pot lucks, trivia, themed days)

Enjoy my job and customer service
Department Supervisor (Current Employee), ONNovember 25, 2014
Pros: meeting new people and when we bonus
Learned how to manage two teams and be a team player by leading by example. Being the In Focus captain. Learn something new everyday, whether it be a new product or some ones own experience. Look over schedules to ensure there is coverage to provide customer service.
Meet new people everyday and help people fulfill the news and wants to improve there personal homes or business.
A typical day is come in provide customer service, over look deliveries and ensure everything is running smoothly and all merchandising is set for up coming promos.
the hardest part of my job is when we lose a team member whether they get promoted or just move on to different departments or companies. We work as a team and family.
