Retail Position with potential for advancement
Sale Associate - Plumbing & Electrical (Former Employee) – Westmount, Edmonton, AB – 21 September 2017
If I could improve one thing there, it would be the training. They could do a much better job teaching the technical knowledge needed to really help customers. I had to learn on the job, which was pretty difficult and frustrating, especially when the company advertises that their employees are supposed to be there to help.
If you are looking for a a career in retail and want to learn how to manage a department or a store, The Home Depot will invest time in helping you learn that part of the business.
Most of the management team were approachable, easy to work for and cared about their employees. They seemed to be have a lot of additional tasks outside of their departments that took them away from really running their respective business units effectively.
The company really took the culture they preach to heart. The management team did a great job recognizing when employees did the right thing according to their values.
The hardest part of the job was not being able to help customers because I didn't have enough background knowledge that was specific to my department.
The best part of the job was when I felt I really was able to help someone.
Flexible work schedule, good benefits
