Cashier (Former Employee) – Port Coquitlam, BC – 18 August 2017
This was a pretty good place to work my first few years there, but then management changed. As head cashier was promoted to supervisor, all she cared about was how fast she could climb that ladder to success. Cashiers were left without a supervisor as she was never around and began to bicker and step on each others toes trying to be the boss that wasn't there. Room for advance was nil unless you wanted to wait 10 years or more to move up.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Bowmanville, ON – 17 August 2017
Being a cashier at Home Depot, for the most part is a straight forward job, I've learned a lot from working there and made new friends along the way. Management may not always be the greatest but if you just do your job, stay focused and friendly, you'll do great! Hard parts of being cashier is the not so friendly customers, but they can be found at any job!
Scheduling 3 weeks in advance, friendly environment.

Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Vernon, BC – 16 August 2017
I started at the Home Depot in the early spring of 2017. That following summer during June/July, there was massive flooding in our area, and the Home Depot was not only understanding with flexibility in scheduling enabling me to help the people I lived with protect our home, but also called me on multiple occasions to ask if there was any way they could offer assistance or support of any other kind, including trying to find volunteers amongst the employees to fill sandbags and donating certain products to help in the relief efforts.
A phenomenal culture at The Home Depot exists, truly. I would recommend it as a great place to work for anyone.

The Home Depot is all about taking care of their people and they do an amazing job. They focus on culture as well a the community. Plenty of room to grow and have a stable work life balance.I have learned a ton about the operations side. Inventory control, P&L, scheduling and so much more.
Supply Chain Analyst (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 August 2017
- Home Depot Supply chain is a robust division within Home Depot. It is forefront in innovation and finding new ways to deliver products to customers in more efficient and cost effective way.
The regular work hours are typically long during the peak sales season. You could easily work up-to 55-60 hrs a week during peak but during off peak season the work load is very low so it balances itself.
Most enjoyable part of work is that it is very relaxed work environment and people are supportive.
People and Good work environment.
Culture of Favouritism and bias in upper management.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 10 August 2017
Worked there for a brief time and realized very quickly why the turn over rate of empolyees is so high. Management team are very unprofessional and do not represent good work ethic role models. Think they are on a whole other level than other employees. Very egotistical. Unorganized when it comes to scheduling : multiple schedules posted which do not match and therefore conflict. Had an issue with a department lead and brought it to HR in store as well as district manager of HR. Nothing came of it due to the senority i presume.
