Dept. Supervisor/Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – San Carlos, CA – 8 July 2013
From starting out as an associate and working my way up in to part of management I have learned every outlook about customer service from an associate, to a supervisor to an Assistant Store Manager and now I use that experience to ensure customers are well taking care of. The experience have made my days easier and more enjoyable.
Head Cashier (Former Employee) – Fort Saskatchewan, AB – 22 June 2017
Overall it was a pretty good company to work for, definitely takes care of its employees. I left because there was too much drama, nothing was resolved with a particular coworker, management just turned the other eye.
Long lunches, great benefits, decent hours, great wages
L'équipe a boisbriand est vraiment exeptionelle toujours agréable de travailler avec eux. Possibilité de progresser dans la compagnie: on peut passer d'associer au stationnement a directeur de magasin et même plus haut. Par contre pour un associée à temps partiel le nombre d'heure varie beaucoup (on peut avoir deux semaine de suite à 35H et après POUF on passe à 20 heure pendent 3 semaines et après on remonte)
Possibilités de progresser dans la compagnie, équipe extraordinaire
Nombre d'heure très variable pour les temps partiel
Doors and Windows Sales Specialist (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 June 2017
Very good experience working for Home Depot. Very good management and good overall work environment. Managers and upper management is caring and supportive. If you are eager to go forward management will provide all tools and support you need to go up.
Service Desk Associate (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 21 June 2017
it a wonderful company to work for, but the store I was in the management was only worried about store appearance and didn't care a whole lot about the employee's. if you showed up that was all that was needed, didn't treat everyone the same, there was favorites in place where there shouldn't have been.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 19 June 2017
Like any other job, you are required to have to weekdays to close, a minimum of four hour shift, along with the whole weekend open for availability. Management is a hit or miss. Coordination between the managers can be off sometimes, leading to tons of confusion. You will rarely see the department supervisors in their actual departments, and often times you as the associate can be expected to cover the brunt of the responsibilities of the department by yourself each day. At times, ridiculous rules will be imposed with counter-productive results upon "not following them"(for e.g Saying "Hi!" to every single customer you see, and getting a notice from the manager upon missing even one customer). With that said, the fellow associates are like-minded, and can make your job easier to work and lessen the stress. I am a full time student at university, and there are many others like so working part time at Home Depot. So finding like-minded individuals can be helpful and at times, even inspiring of what you would want to do upon graduating school.
Free lunches every now and then. Free coffee
Unpredictability of work schedule. (Full shift when you leave expect, no promise of shifts being given away etc.)
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Port Coquitlam, BC – 18 June 2017
The job has great people and feels like a family, however higher up make it stressful at times with cut backs. A typical day can be busy or slow always something to do, how ever some stick to just bare minimum. Some management are nice and work well with you and approach things nicely but others can be hard to work with and just care that you are getting the work done. The job is very hard to move up in and has taken some over 10+years to move up. The people you work with are usually the best part of it bonding like a family were you wouldn't want to go anywhere else. Ideally this job is for young first time workers and retired professional.
long hours, little staff, management, locating stock
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Port Coquitlam, BC – 16 June 2017
Go to work and spend four to eight hours either being a customer service rep or a cashier. Depending on shift there is two fifteen minutes and one half hour or an hour lunch break.
I learned how to use their phone system and intercom, how to do returns and create customer orders.
Management is wonderful, they do their best to make sure everyone is heard and problems get resolved fairly and quickly.
Workplace culture is really great. Everyone is friendly and really likes their job and there's a sense of community within the workplace.
The hardest part of the job is to make sure every customer feels heard and appreciated, and that's also one of the best parts, especially when they thank you and are grateful that you've done everything to help them.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Prince George, BC – 16 June 2017
They are constantly trying to improve your skills in every department for the store but in my case I won the Cashier Olympics after 4 months of employment with no promotion and they wouldn't allow me to acquire new skills.
simple enough place to work. Managers want to push goals and achieve many things but don't provide the staff to do so. You can easily find yourself getting overwhelmed doing many different jobs with many responsibilities the ore you learn at the Home Depot. Becomes a burden while you are being under paid and under valued altogether. There is space to move up in the company but it's hard. May take a long time as much as they may make it seem difficult. It requires no professional background or degree to move to a high position. You can learn everything you need to just being an employee.
