Shipper (Former Employee), Wetaskiwin, AB – November 7, 2014
Pros: good work environment and awesome co-workers.
Cons: 5 year night shift and the pay maxed out at $19.00 per hour.
My night shift was a lot of organizing product for orders from stores and loading up my truck. I learned the ins and outs of shipping and receiving, material handling, and safely operating all types of fork lifts and lift trucks. Management of time and energy was satisfactory thru out my shift. I got along with all my co-workers, great bunch of people. Hardest – more... part of my job was the final hour, 7 am and exhausted. The most enjoyable part was the bond of friendship we all had in the shipping department while we worked, laughing and joking to keep our spirits up. – less
Warehouse Worker / Labourer (Former Employee), Thunder Bay, ON – October 15, 2014
Pros: they pay you on time
Okay, not great. Managers didn't bother me too much, just did my job and then went home. Liked my co workers Hardest part was stocking paint and nails. Also finding the right sink was often tricky. Their ancient computer system was confusing.
Most enjoyable part were the breaks, they let you take them on time.
Stock Person (Former Employee), Okotoks, AB – September 25, 2014
All the people how work at Home Hardware want to work there and love working there. However as always there's an issue, when it comes to Home Hardware the only major fault i saw was that the inventory system was to unorganized, sure everything had a general spot, but that's where it ends, unless you have a photographic memory its difficult to remember – more... where things are. – less
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Morinville, AB – September 23, 2014
Pros: social atmosphere, meet lots of customers, exercise
Cons: days can drag, hostile management, workplace drama, minimum wage
Working at Home Hardware is enjoyable. You move dirt, clean, put out stock, and carry things out for customers. The work can be hard, but the time passes pretty quickly. The floor people are fun to work with, but management is where the job falls short. The owner is very respectable, but the manager is one of the reasons they make reviews anonymous, – more... to say the least. Would recommend the job though. – less

Stock Person (Former Employee), Okotoks, AB – June 20, 2014
Pros: the people i worked with
Cons: rude customers
management and co-workers were awesome. I never dreaded to go to work and give it my all everyday! the hardest part of the job was the rude customers while the most enjoyable part of my day was building BBQs, building lawnmowers, wheel barrels, ect.
A typical day at work consisted of assisting customers at cash, putting away stock, cleaning the aisles and cash area, greeting customers, maintaining a clean and orderly work environment, and creating an enjoyable and friendly environment for customers. I learned that hard work pays off and in order to the best job possible, it is crucial to create – more... a positive working environment. I enjoyed both my management and coworkers. They were all very flexible and great at providing assistance to me and others when needed. The hardest part of the job would most likely be dealing with technology issues, such as the computers freezing or failing to work which then would result in all orders being hand written and calculated. The most enjoyable part was meeting new people, whether that be customers or my coworkers, I enjoy spending time with other people and as a cashier I was able to do so. – less
