Cashier (Former Employee) – Port Coquitlam, BC – 18 August 2017
This was a pretty good place to work my first few years there, but then management changed. As head cashier was promoted to supervisor, all she cared about was how fast she could climb that ladder to success. Cashiers were left without a supervisor as she was never around and began to bicker and step on each others toes trying to be the boss that wasn't there. Room for advance was nil unless you wanted to wait 10 years or more to move up.
Engaged in customer service and all aspects of Home Improvement business
Merchandise Team Supervisor (Current Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 27 June 2017
Engage in customer service. Selling products to customers in a warehouse environment. I have learned management skills, problem solving skills, workplace culture and how to improve daily success through associate engagement. The most enjoyable part of the job is interaction with leadership team, store associates, and peers.
Customer first company with an emphasis on benefits
Sales Associate, Part Time (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 27 June 2017
The company as a whole follows a strict mentality of customers first. It allows for the beginning foundation of intense customer loyalty to be made. To help maintain and strengthen that customer loyalty the company provides superb benefits to each associate. It's a great place to learn a lot, meet some people you may not have met otherwise and learn what it means to treat the customer first.
Professional safety regulations, opportunities to learn and grow, amazing benifits. Great customer service
Head Cashier (Former Employee) – Fort Saskatchewan, AB – 22 June 2017
Overall it was a pretty good company to work for, definitely takes care of its employees. I left because there was too much drama, nothing was resolved with a particular coworker, management just turned the other eye.
Long lunches, great benefits, decent hours, great wages
L'équipe a boisbriand est vraiment exeptionelle toujours agréable de travailler avec eux. Possibilité de progresser dans la compagnie: on peut passer d'associer au stationnement a directeur de magasin et même plus haut. Par contre pour un associée à temps partiel le nombre d'heure varie beaucoup (on peut avoir deux semaine de suite à 35H et après POUF on passe à 20 heure pendent 3 semaines et après on remonte)
Possibilités de progresser dans la compagnie, équipe extraordinaire
Nombre d'heure très variable pour les temps partiel
MILLWORK ASSOCIATE/EXPEDITER (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 22 June 2017
Much variety as I covered as many as 4 depts. at once ..... gave me good background in additional to the work experience I already had. Made decisions on my own and could sale off items with customers. Very good customer service in my areas as well ... received employee of the month 5 times.
Doors and Windows Sales Specialist (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 June 2017
Very good experience working for Home Depot. Very good management and good overall work environment. Managers and upper management is caring and supportive. If you are eager to go forward management will provide all tools and support you need to go up.
Service Desk Associate (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 21 June 2017
it a wonderful company to work for, but the store I was in the management was only worried about store appearance and didn't care a whole lot about the employee's. if you showed up that was all that was needed, didn't treat everyone the same, there was favorites in place where there shouldn't have been.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 19 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.
Free lunches every now and then. Free coffee
Unpredictability of work schedule. (Full shift when you leave expect, no promise of shifts being given away etc.)
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Port Coquitlam, BC – 18 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.
long hours, little staff, management, locating stock
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Port Coquitlam, BC – 16 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.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Prince George, BC – 16 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.
