Home Depot Kitchen and Bath Specialist
Kitchen and Bath Specialist (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON8 November 2017
The world and life balance is great, as well as the benefits. The pay isn't that great but the job has it's simplicity. The management of the store is quite poor as the store itself lack employees. Advancement is hard to gain throughout the store. Overall, Home Depot is is decent if you need a part-time gig for a short period of time. I would not consider it being a career.
Pros
Flexible hours, benefits
Cons
Low pay, poorly managed departments

Good place to work
MET Merchandising Execution Team (Current Employee) –  Vernon, BC6 November 2017
Home Depot Merchandising Execution team is a good job. there are a Day MET team and a Night Met team. The day met team services and maintains the section in each isle for the venders. The night met team works night's to rebuild the bays in the isles for the venders. Both positions are good jobs. They are both good positions, but the night position is more physical with setting bays up.

Decent benefits, terrible management and wage
Speciality/Merchandising Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB4 November 2017
Imagine doing your supervisors job for 6 months then them getting promoted. Well that's the Home Depot. I do appreciate them training me on the fork lift and reach truck, and for the first couple months of my job is was great. But after a while they take advantage of you hard and keep adding more things on your plate. Beyond that the computers are so slow and not everyone knows how to use the system. Some people pretty much get paid to show up while other people carry the store, they have an entire team dedicated to merchandising that don't even merchandise, all they do is set up displays and dust, and they do a pretty bad job at it. Not to mention I have worked a bit later in the lift, and the team in charge of merchandising my dept. at night just sat around and talked for abut an hour straight about non work related stuff. Its a decent job if you don't plan to work there for over a year. But be careful because they don't even give references.
Pros
every second Friday they have free peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, fork lift trianing
Cons
bad wage, favouritism, dept. supervisors seem to hide and let their stuff do everything

Home Depot is a good place to work with great incentives for the work that you do with bonuses and rewards. There is a social committee that always has stuff going on and is very informative.

Head Cashier (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON31 October 2017
I have had a wonderful experience with both my fellow staff and management in my time with Home Depot. It has been a highly positive and inclusive environment. As a trans-woman, I was a little hesitant in working in such an environment, but the staff and management have been remarkable. I have worked in two separate store and found that this atmosphere is consistent throughout the company.

More strict than your typical retail job
Sales, Cashier, and Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Orleans, ON28 October 2017
Disorganized, customers and some management rude to cashiers especially.
No rules set in place to give guidance but they act like there are.
No trust between the employees at the front end and management.
Semi-lenient with schedule since we have so many people working.
Awesome back-room. comfortable, coffee, TV, lockers, computers.
Internet can be hard to access/disconnects frequently.
Overall a very average experience. If you keep to yourself an keep your mouth shut they'll like you. Unfortunately I'm not really the type.
Pros
Payday lunches (most of which you pay for)
Cons
Bad Management
