ELECTRICAL AND LIGHTING ASSOCIATE (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 4 October 2017
The work culture and coworkers at the home depot it the best part of working there. Everyone one is fun and very helpful to new comers.
You can learn a lot about good work ethic and sales but you have to put in the time to learn and study your department or you will we lost.
You get a lot of hours if you work hard but they will take advantage of you at the same time to work harder than others that get the same pay as you do.
The worse part about working at the Home depot is there is never enough staff when the peak times hit and you will be running around like a crazy person. I find it easy because I'm used to that kind of situation but for someone that is starting out that will want to quit and I have see it happen too.
Night Stocker (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 3 October 2017
The overall atmosphere of the building was not pleasant. Managers would favor other employees. Management was not overly willing to work with the staff to meet the needs of the staff with regards to scheduling.

Lot associate (Current Employee) – Whitby, ON – 24 September 2017
The Home depot is very good place to work, and the management is very good. I learned a lot from this job, and loved working with the people. The hardest part of the job is when there is no customers in the store.
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.

Overnight freight associate (Current Employee) – Thunder Bay, ON – 18 September 2017
Working here is pretty good, as a night owl I enjoyed being up and just logging away at a stack of boxes until the end of shift, I learned how to better organize overstock and handle task management better, tyhe workplace is safe and can be quite comforting when all you do is walk in and out of aisles with your carts. the hardest part of the joc for me was the initial sleep schedule reset, but after you get used to that it's a cinch. and the most enoyable part of the job was the ease of organizing the stock, just picking up tricks to make the stock go awa faster you really get a feel for the work and get into a groove.
