This was a good job, as it's very team-work based and co-workers I found were very helpful with questions you may have. There was room for growth as well and the offered students certain benefits with helping with tuition.
Store Associate (Current Employee) – Fort Saskatchewan, AB – 6 January 2018
Bad management, Work to personal life is all one and not kept separate, the management is unqualified, however you o learn how to drive machinery, become safety orientated and learn new skills vital to working
Good People, new skills
Work/Personal issues, No leaders (Had to become one just to make my department survive
Flooring Sales Associate, Okotoks (Former Employee) – Okotoks, AB – 26 October 2017
Shifts were very inconsistent Some supervisors think they are more important than what they actually are The younger you are, the more they take advantage of you to do more but still pay you the same as others Seniors sit around and pretend to look busy Very disorganized system of having people looking after their own departments Training process is poor
Flooring and Decor Associate (Former Employee) – Barrhaven, ON – 2 September 2017
I had an excellent experience at the Home Depot Barrhaven location. I met many coworkers and customers who are still my friend. The work gave me a lot of sales experience and I am very grateful for that and look forward to applying the skills I learned there to the many opportunities that will arise for me in the future.

Store Associate (Current Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 21 March 2017
Good place to work. Currently on night shift. They give full time hours but rarely hire "full time". Ive been there for 2 years now. If you want to move up in the company night shift is not the position you want to pursue.
Flooring/Decor Associate (Current Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 5 February 2017
A regular work day consists of opening the store with a morning rally with all staff to get day started. Then we do a daily safety inspection of our areas.The rest of the day is customer service and stocking to keep store neat and organize.
I really enjoy working with the customers and helping build their projects or help them set up someone to come install their projects.
My only con really is the heavy work load in my department and being on your feet all day takes a toll on the back.
Home Depot is a good company to work for and tries to make sure their employees needs are met.
Great team I work with, never lay off, flexible for days off and special needs.
Low wages/Heavy labour/Awards are taxed/Rules don't apply for everyone
Sales Associate for Flooring (Former Employee) – Pointe-Claire, QC – 18 January 2017
HD Pointe-Claire was a very fine job for me that I held for a few months. Unfortunately there were problems with the management in how they divided work amongst themselves (they would do all the work together, which seemed ineffective). It was a good experience dealing with customers and dealing with their needs. Great atmosphere and freat co-workers. Have to be on your feet all shift-long, but the feeling of helping clients made up for it.
Flooring/Décor/Kitchen and Bath Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 12 December 2016
I've earned a lot about the construction process while working at the Home Depot. There are so many knowledgeable employees to teach you exactly what is needed to complete a project so you're able to pass that knowledge on to customers.
Great place to work, especially for students and Part-Time
FLOORING ASSOCIATE (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 21 July 2016
Good Support and job Culture. Managers and supervisors are really helpful. Training you can use for other trade jobs. work days are not too long and supervisors take time to properly train each associate with almost professional precision.

Full time Flooring and decor sales Specialist (Current Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 16 April 2016
never a dull day helping customers all day is very satisfying working to find the perfect flooring solution for your customers. I have learned time management, fork lift skills, first aid and great sales skills . management are great they support your job development and growth as a person and an associate. my coworkers are the greatest group of people I've ever worked with supportive and driven. the hardest part of my job is when you see a person leave with the wrong product and wont change to a suitable one. seeing the final project completed a lot of my customers come back to show me the final project.
awesome place to work and the people are even better
