Pros: we got some good discounts on products, and paid lunches at inventory.
Cons: sometimes long hours, there were not many cons with this job
I have worked with three different Home Hardwares
The first was Home Hardware Plaza West and Home Hardware Plaza North, owned by the same people 2005-2008
McLeans Home Hardware Building Centre 2008-2011
I enjoyed my time at Plaza West for the Paint Department was mine, and people would come to me for colour advice. The staff generally sent customers my way, for I had the best eye because of my training and natural talent.
My co-workers were always great to work with, quick with a smile and excellent customer service.
There were not too many hard parts, but if I had to pick one, it would be lifting the 5 gallon paint containers to mix tint into.
Depending on the store, my typical day would consist of counting cash, putting stock away, ordering stock and working with customers.
