Sometimes management too uptight
Sales & Cust serv - Cabinetry design (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC15 October 2018
Generally a good corporate company, but sometimes a corporate mind-set becomes robotic and cold.
I was not trained properly to do an expensive task so when I did it slowly so as not to make mistakes, the customer went up to the vice-pres who in turn came down onto the management at my store which then made me the scape-goat for not meeting the customers time-line.
Pros
stability
Cons
too uptight

Flooring Associate (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON12 October 2018
Very low paying job with a lot of good potential wasn't for terrible managers. Dealing with customers is great and, helping people with their needs and projects is fantastic. However, the store is understaffed (so, managers can get a fatter bonus) which puts a lot of stress and pressure on associates working on the floor.
Scheduling is chaotic and insufficient nevertheless, the managers expect impeccable customer service from associates.

Terrible place to work
Order Picker/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Grande Prairie, AB10 October 2018
Each individual is literally viewed as a statistic.
Management does not cater to the needs of employees.
Need for sick time is disciplined instead of negotiated.
HR manifests reason to under pay as often as possible.
Zero ability to advance in position or salary.
Employee breaks cut short due to management's lack of desire to step up.

customers ok, management sucks
Lumber Associate (Former Employee) –  Niagara Falls, ON6 October 2018
Never before has the idiom 'people don't quit jobs, they quit bosses' applied like here. They don't care if there is a problem, if you're unhappy, if something's not right. Just don't bother them.
Pros
Most Customers were pleasant
Cons
Lousy management

Horrible place to work
Prefer not to say (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON4 October 2018
Home Depot is a horrible company! Managers change all the time & when they come into Kitchens, they will argue with your point on an issue as they don’t know the correct terminology, & have admitted to not knowing it!
It is a very petty atmosphere, with suposedly “grown” adults arguing over sales & sales goals... even on the floor, swearing at one another, challenging to take it outside with fellow associates. The pay is horrible! When you get your annual review they think a .25-.45 cent raise is good enough?? Inflation is more than that??
There is no recognition for a job well done, if you sell a $40,000 kitchen, they’ll say “good”, “when’re you selling another one?
There are blatantly younger associates stealing, no show, no calls & they almost get rewarded for it?!!
One, or more associates can make up a “horrible” situation & management believes their heresay not the true facts.
If you’re looking to be verbally abused by other staff & management, by all means apply!
If you have any sense of your own knowledge, expertise & respect, DO NOT BOTHER TO WORK HERE!!
Fair warning!!
Pros
None
Cons
The whole company

Marketing e imagen corporativa (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC3 October 2018
Una empresa lider en USA y Canadá en el área de construcción y bricolaje. Muy organizada, donde el cliente es bien asesorado y dirigido según su necesidad.

Aprendí mucho a valorar al cliente como ente individual y no como un producto. También pude mejorar mi percepcción de las tendencias y gusto del mercado canadiense.
