Supervisor (Current Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 16 September 2017
- I dealt with different accounts - first time managing a staff - had to learn about a field that I had no previous knowledge in before - learned great customer service skills - learned a great deal of problem-solving skills - Great work environment
Working here does not meet my expectation for a long-term employment.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – North Vancouver, BC – 18 September 2017
No formal training program provided, and expect you to know everything in the store without asking themselves if they have provided such training.
I thought about the owner/s as nice people to work with. The only thing is that, they should nurture people and believe that - with proper training - it should be a win-win situation for them down the road and workers will work effectively and productively knowing that the management is behind them every step of the way.

Home hardware was a great job as a student, the employee discount was very good. The employees were very friendly and open to new employees. Home hardware also greatly respects their regular customers as the customers do them.
Customer Service Representative and Cashier (Former Employee) – Emerald Park, SK – 27 August 2017
I really enjoyed working at Home Hardware. The people and atmosphere were fantastic. The opportunities to learn and grow were great.
However, I was suddenly laid off due to dropping sales and a resulting cutback on salary costs. This was a mere six weeks after my hiring (into a permanent full time position). This to me demonstrated poor planning and unreliability from management.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Ottawa East, ON – 17 August 2017
Specifically speaking about the Home Hardware located in Ottawa east at the Elmvale Mall. Condescending employees & ZERO training given by management. Expected to know everything about the business without any training.
Home hardware (Former Employee) – Ingersoll, ON – 28 July 2017
I had fun while working there but i wanted to find something fun to do for my self i like detailing cars cleaning cutting grass so i wanted to get out here and find something i liked better then home hard ware but it was a good place to work at
The work was good..hard on the feet & back sometimes, but I enjoyed it
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Wetaskiwin, AB – 21 June 2017
Good place to work...steady income that was pretty good pay. Depending what area you worked, could be lots of lifting, bending, and tough on the feet, could be lots of walking too. pretty good management...I enjoyed the work there, away from my previous career. But I did wonder how I was going to do the job when I got older, considering the area I was working in. I felt pressured to get my amount of "lines/day" in, others seemed to do it easier...that was just a perception.It was a good experience.
