fun group to work with yet winter hours are very struggling
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Midland, ON24 November 2017
during winter do not expect more than 12-15 hours a week even if trying to get cross training. the crowd is amazing to work with and everyone is super friendly but the missing hours some need to simply pay for a phone bill is very short in the winter

It is an always changing environment and keeps you busy
SEASONAL ASSOCIATE (Current Employee) –  Lethbridge, AB21 November 2017
It is Really task and customer service based work. Customers come first and then depending on the time of year your tasks may change from Packing up the last seasons products and merchandising the current seasons products. There is always something to do wether it be replenishing stock or simply cleaning up the department and if you have completed things in your own department there is always someone else to assist.
Pros
Benefits are great for a retail job and the company does look after employees
Cons
No consistency to schedule and it is not often you get two days off together without request

Customer Service is key.
Cashier / Head Cashier (Former Employee) –  Prince George, BC15 November 2017
Always learning new things, because of the wide variety of customers we dealt with on a daily basis. Management was very supportive of all the associates. As we were typically the last people that customers dealt with before leaving the store, our goal was to always make sure they were smiling as they walked out the door.
The hardest part of the job, was not getting enough work hours.
Pros
great co-workers, and so much to learn
Cons
not enough hours

Other employees were the only good part of working here
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Belleville, ON14 November 2017
Management socks. Can't actually say they even know what their job really is. Hours are off the wall. Part time pay but full time hours. Useless getting trained on things you know nothing about you are to already know. Some management is good but a few don't have a backbone. REALLY PLAY FAVORITES. Be careful they will definitely use you. 2 1/2 months in and you will get let go and they won't even give a reason. Saw many get axed just because.
Pros
Social
Cons
Everything

authoritarian and domineering management, unfulfilling work, unilateral focus
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB14 November 2017
poorly trained management. authoritarian and threatening style. bullies.

rounds up all staff every morning to preach their corporate virtues and forces the minimum wage staff to clap and celebrate huge corporate profits for billionaire owners. lords over staff.

management frequently and inappropriately disciplines minimum wage staff with bogus accusations. employee has no protection and little recourse. corporate actions are unilateral and as the say "we only do what's best for the company"

although non commission sales, management will yell, scream and belittle sales staff in private meetings to frighten staff into better performance.
Cons
authoritarian style, low wages, little respect

HARDWARE DEPARTMENT MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Caledon, ON14 November 2017
Home depot is a very fast paced retail environment that can take you in and make you feel like family or it can also make you feel like an outsider depending on the upper management that currently resides in thee store.

Great medical benefits, great people to work with, fair treatment, lots to learn
Merchandising Execution Associate Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Lethbridge, AB12 November 2017
I worked for Home Depot for 5 years and loved every minute of it. They do regular reviews to help you improve yourself but also to let you know what you are doing well. They have reward programs like homer awards for going above and beyond. They do fun work activities such as potlucks. They have volunteer opportunities with Team Depot. There is lots of room to grow and learn new skills. You aren't stuck in one department and there are many opportunities for advancement. The health benefits are really good with medical and dental coverage. There are also medical and dental benefits available for part time employees.
