Customer service (Current Employee) – Bowmanville, ON – 7 December 2017
Very pleasant work atmosphere. Company was very thorough with training regime on monthly basis. Always encouraging their employees to seek advancement with the company through schooling or internal promotions.The Home Depot has taught me how to fine tune my customer service interactions. The hardest part of the job is to try and solve customers problems when they lacked the knowledge of what was required to complete their task. Having customers coming back to thank you for your advice, and letting you know that everything went smoothly.
Many social committee events, employee recognition, lunches
Shifts have a tendency to be a little inconsistent
- most enjoyable part of the job was the people to work with, everyone, for the most part was very easy to get along with and full of ideas. - hardest part of the job would be that it was a night shift contract which makes it difficult to visit friends and family after hours, but not really a negative thing, just part of the job. - management was very good at keeping everyone on task and making sure everyone had tasks that were suitable to their best skills as to not overwhelm them with work they cannot handle.

Always a adventure. Some people love a routine for work... Well you can find that here but to really enjoy and embrace working at Home Depot yo need to be willing to follow where your tasks take you, You could start out in the Lumber Aisle and end up in Plumbing or Electrical a hour later all with the same customer.

i enjoy working at home depot but the hours are not guaranteed so you could have 40 one week and then 12 the next. the pay is decent and the work environment is good and they are always willing to let you do more training

Working here was fun for the time being, I built great relationships with both customers and employees. Leaders in the work place are respectable, you always serve the customer, and try to go beyond expectations to make yourself, your leaders and customers happier.
fun group to work with yet winter hours are very struggling

during winter do not expect more than 12-15 hours a week even if trying to get cross training. the crowd is amazing to work with and everyone is super friendly but the missing hours some need to simply pay for a phone bill is very short in the winter
