Store Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 November 2017
It was very physical demanding. I tried my best but got injured. It was a hard time for me but I used to love that kind of job due to I have a post graduate degree in Marketing. Later I have changed my career path.
Yard Worker (Former Employee) – Manning, AB – 15 November 2017
This was in my hometown, and I was making below minimum wage, while working really long hours, I was desperate for any work though so I had stuck it out just so that I could keep making my insurance payments.
Cashier, Stock, Security (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 14 November 2017
Home Hardware payed a great amount for general work. My co-workers were incredibly nice and caring but management was a little sub par. They refused to get a security system and thus plucked one unlucky cashier per shift (usually me) to stand by the back door alone for 8 hours straight to check receipts and nothing else. It was winter up north and temperatures right next to the door often reached -30 degrees. This is what made me leave the job
Labourer (Former Employee) – Witless Bay, NL – 14 November 2017
Everyday is the same task of hauling bags of insulation into a trailer and feeding it into a i that then grinds it up and lows it into the house. For someone who doesn't mind heavy lifting and forming patterns for work.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Wetaskiwin, AB – 8 November 2017
I worked for Home Hardware at their Distribution Centre in Wetaskiwin, Alberta. I started as a high-school student working their 4-8:30 par time shift, a well paying job with very flexible hours. I stayed with the company for several years until graduation where I made a very generous wage for a days work.
The company as a whole was very good, while the work wasn't always the greatest the environment, the management, and the compensation made this a great place to work in the community.
Cheap, on site caffeteria, good wages, lots of optional overtime
Tedious work, repetitive, and sometimes quite heavy work.
Danforth Ave - Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 October 2017
I found working for this company to be a real pain, I was giving one 8 hr shift a week vs the FT employment we originally agreed upon, I learned about the products and got to work closely with customers to help build their dream homes.
great learning experiences and neighborhood
found I wasn't taken as seriously as I'd like to be
Yard Worker and Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – North Bay, ON – 9 October 2017
I very much enjoyed working for Home Hardware. My employer was very family oriented and we worked great as a team. I really enjoyed making landscaping deliveries and meeting all kinds of people. I am a people person.
Stock Person (Current Employee) – Whitehorse, YT – 22 September 2017
Started the day early and to my department and place baskets of product on the shelf. Management has always been helpful and guided me to make work easier. I worked in a cross cultural environment. My job was fun and i enjoyed working here
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.
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
Team Member (Former Employee) – Georgetown, ON – 12 September 2017
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.
