Most positions are part-time, pay isn't the greatest, good company culture
Front Line Cashier (Current Employee) – Ancaster, ON – 21 March 2017
Day to day can get repetitive. You can ask to job shadow in other departments but they won't raise your pay based off your experience. Some managers are great and are good leaders, while some are just power hungry and definitely NOT customer service material. Workplace culture is good, employees get lots of treats during the month and fun activities. The hardest part of the job is standing on your feet and dealing with irate customers, it's not so bad though. The pay isn't the greatest but is better than most minimum wage jobs. The most enjoyable part about the job is definitely the people that work there, everyone is usually very friendly.
logistical coordinator (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 March 2017
This company will always be close to my heart for the fact that it permitted me to move to Ontario and continue my studies in fashion design. They allowed me to learn all the product lines and gain more experience in online and over the phone customer service.
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.
Merchandise Executioner (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 March 2017
Strong company culture, with great people and management. Working for Home Depot MET , the wage is average but that compensates for work like balance due no weekend or night shifts, strictly 6:00am-2:30pm.
Appliance Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 March 2017
Great Motto! do the right thing. I really enjoyed my time at the Home Depot. There was a lack of hours when I was working there so I became cross-trained in several departments. I also worked in paints,lumber and hardware. Employees are given a certain degree of autonomy to make price and substitutions when product not available.
treat people as you yourself want to be treated.
lack of hours in my home department - appliance sales
A family/team environment with a great deal of challenges which keep the day to day exciting.

Department Manager multiple positions (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 March 2017
Working at Home Depot was an amazing opportunity for me to learn on a daily basis. I was blessed with working in every corner of the store. The core values of customer service (Customer First) was held to a very high standard. The associates and management all worked together it was a large family feel,one of many of my favorite things.
Continous learning, great people, loyal customers.
Shift work, it was not working the weekends that are problematic, it is the 5am-2 then 2pm-11 shift work that is a con
Cashier/Return (Former Employee) – ontario,Aurora – 15 March 2017
Its a good place to work .but there are some improvement they can do for the employees. the management dose not give value to their best employee there is no difference between an employee who work hard and help a lot for company growth and an employee who dose not car about the company .
Assistant (Current Employee) – Sainte-Foy, QC – 13 March 2017
J'ai été superviseur dans différents département comme la quincaillerie, la peinture, électricité, plomberie. Coach pour les nouveaux associés. Deux fois par année on reçois des bonis. La seul chose que je trouve difficile c'est de servir des clients qui sont agressifs quand il manque des articles.
Excellent Training and Learning atmosphere. Fast paced
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Moncton, NB – 12 March 2017
The Company as a whole was an excellent experience. I learned constantly and motivated my team to provide the best in Customer service. I was happy to develop and promote associates and create the leaders of tomorrow. I especially enjoyed the fast pace and pressure of competitive retail. My favourite aspect was working with People, both Customers and Staff.
Specialty Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 11 March 2017
I bled orange. I loved this place. I just didn't get the support I needed when I needed it while dealing with a personal issue. The company was losing focus on the importance of engaged and present associates. There were never enough associates on the floor to get the job done. Customer service was suffering at times. I loved working with the customers and solving problems
Associée aux ventes (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 6 March 2017
L'administration n'a malheureusement pas de respect pour les employés. Même les consignes les plus basic pour un service à la clientèle exemplaire n'est pas tenu par l'administration. Par contre, les associés ont un grand souçi pour les clients. Une grande chance qu'ils ont de bons employés pour répondre aux clients parce qu'il ne serait plus là.
