Customer Service (Former Employee) – London, ON – 15 May 2017
This place isn't the best to work at. Typically they only will hire you for a couple months then fire you for no genuine reason. They use people for that time then cut them off. This is not the job for someone who is looking for a long term job.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 May 2017
it was horrible working for this compony, it might of not even been the company it self, but the management, the story owner that made my time there so ban, I was not motivated, always put down when I made a mistake, or even when I didn't even do anything. the owner was to cheep to higher a cleaner to clean the store, so therefore I was always breathing in dust.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Sarnia, ON – 2 May 2017
I have the privilege of working with great managers and coworkers. It is a respectful atmosphere where everyone tries to help each other out. I would recommend this company for anyone looking for a job.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Selwyn, ON – 7 April 2017
Unlike the department store retail environment, which was stressful and unfulfilling, Home Hardware was relaxing, with enough variability in the day-to-day to keep it from being boring. Most everyone was friendly, and there was always something to do in order to pass the time - dust off the home decor section, refill the cooler, help a customer bring their stuff to their car, etc.
Still, you could honestly tell the owner genuinely cared about the satisfaction of the customer. Also, the summer hot dog cart is awesome.

Stocer/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 29 March 2017
The procedure of work was that of assisting customers with merchandising help and stocking inventory on shelves while maintaining a organized product display. Management was very understanding and was very respectable when it came to work pace and overall led to a greater workplace culture with the other employees.
Department Manager (Former Employee) – Gravenhurst, ON – 29 March 2017
Working at the Home Hardware was okay in the summer months when it was very busy and catered to a tourist/cottager type of client. very quiet in the winter months and the owners were difficult to get along with.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Kingsville, ON – 17 March 2017
This was a great part-time job for after school employment. The employer was very accommodating with my school schedule. A typical day consisted of using the point of sale, helping customers, and stocking shelves.
