Easily Manageable with Full-Time School
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON19 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.
Pros
Free lunches every now and then. Free coffee
Cons
Unpredictability of work schedule. (Full shift when you leave expect, no promise of shifts being given away etc.)

Ins and outs of Home Depot
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Port Coquitlam, BC18 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.
Pros
coworkers
Cons
long hours, little staff, management, locating stock

A company that takes care of it's people
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Port Coquitlam, BC16 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.
Pros
Part time benefits
Cons
Fluctuating hours depending on season

Love the contests!
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Prince George, BC16 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.

Paint Associate (Former Employee) –  Surrey, BC16 June 2017
Hectic at times, but generally a good place to work. Management style leaves much to be desired as corporate policy can be at odds with logic and common sense.

CASHIER (Current Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON13 June 2017
in order to gain any respect you need to work hard. You must comply with Home Depot standards and promote the credit card and survey endlessly.........

Lumber associate (Current Employee) –  Pointe-Claire, QC12 June 2017
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.
Pros
Free meals once in awhile
Cons
Under paid/under valued

Head Cashier (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC12 June 2017
Always disorganized with schedules and short staffed. Expects a lot for very little pay. Communication in the store is awful, different managers would tell you different things.
