Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – West Kelowna, BC – 17 May 2018
Associates can be helpful and kind, very knowledgeable. Can be some conflict between associate, though not much. Lots of activities/extras for employees, like paid day lunches, silent auctions and special events for holidays. Most department supervisors are good, sometimes upper management in the store is not so great, but the regional management team is amazing and supportive.
Typical day shows helping people fairly consistently, depending on the department. Some departments are more in demand than others.
The biggest pro and con is the value of putting customers first. Employees are empowered to give discounts or reach out for discount approvals but are also required to find every way to say "yes", even if the customer is being very tough and confrontational. You will get people who want special treatment just because they are the customer, even if it's absolutely against THD policy.
The community between associates is good, with lots of good resources between associates across all stores, and also resources provided by the company. There are lots of opportunities to move up or change positions or departments unless you're in one that is super high in demand. For the most part, the work can be hard but enjoyable at the end of the day.

A typical work day is to come in and work 7 reports from orders processed from the day before. Continually answering calls and customer's questions, concerns and complaints, as well an answering any question other associates have in the store. Cashing customer out and processing returns. Building orders, as well as signing them out when customer's come in to pick up their orders, whether it is stock, special order, Buy Online Pick-up In Store, order online orders. It can be a fast paced environment in which one needs to multitask as well as prioritize each situation you come across. each day is a new day with different situations and scenarios, which allow you to learn and grow your customer service skills, problem solving and communication skills.

I loved my time at The Home Depot , and was very sad when I had to leave. I recommend them to everyone I know. They have part time employee benefits, monthly awards, and you are rewarded constantly for your work efforts.

Working at Home Depot is actually so much fun. You learn so much everyday and your co-workers are like your best friends from date one. Management is so easy to talk to as well and it's a great place to work!
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
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 5 September 2017
Terrible management, scheduling is a nightmare, they expect you to do the work of 3 people in a very short time frame. The only positive thing I can say about working here is that the hours are flexible, UNLESS it interferes with them of course.
If you don't plan on staying long, by all means apply. However, if you are planning on a career, run. Run away. I have worked here 4+ years and have not seen any advancement, and don't bother trying because any extra responsibilities you are given do not come with an increase in pay or benefits. Full time hours, part time employee. Doesn't change.

it was a amazing job with plethora of different tasks, this was my first costumer service associate type job outside of work experience. this was a job that required you to be physically fit. you pushed around long lines of carts in all types of weather.
you helped costumers carry there things t there vehicles, operated pallet jacks. helped with stock and inventory. took computer tests. sweeped up large portions of the parking lot.
used large heavy tools to break down massive crates, and was also part of a highly competent team.
