Great work environment
Paint Associate (Current Employee) –  Burnaby, BC16 May 2018
The best part of this job is the people. If customer service is your thing, anyone can be great at this job. The management style I found to be effective and upward mobility a possibility. But this is not a long-term job. As the pay and benefits are minimal and the work culture can start to get contaminated after too many years of being on the front line.
Pros
Active Social committee
Cons
Hard on the body working shift work on a cement floor.

Overall, not bad
HEAD CASHIER (Former Employee) –  Saskatchewan9 May 2018
Overall not a bad place to work, not very flexible in scheduling as you have to be 100% available on weekends, but not bad other than that. Not a lot of room for advancement, good luck getting promoted. Even after years of hard work there is a good chance someone else is getting that promotion.
Pros
Free food often, awesome Christmas party

Front end Manager (Former Employee) –  Duncan, BC9 May 2018
Benefits were good, but the lack of of communication and structure is what brought me to decide to leave this company. Most of the staff are amazing to work with.

Overall good place to work
HEAD CASHIER (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK8 May 2018
Good company, good corporate culture, super inclusive and diverse. Not a lot of room for advancement, only a select few actually get promotions and they sometimes hire externally even when there are a ton of super qualified, trained employees wanting the promotion. Corporate is like that. Not the greatest if you want quick advancement and lots of opportunity, but amazing benefits and overall some great people.
Pros
Free lunch and food very often, booking time off at Christmas was pretty easy as their busy season is summer
Cons
Schedule not very flexible, no room for advancement

Department Supervisor
Department Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB2 May 2018
It's a fantastic company to work if you love to deal with customers on an everyday base. Culture, demographics, and diversity are beautiful at home depot.

Salary and benefits are average for supervisor. Schedule restrictions and flexibility is not very good for supervisor role. Work-life balance is an issue but overall is an excellent company to work for due to the vision of senior leadership team.

If you can stick it out lots of incentives for employees
Receiving Associate (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON30 April 2018
The hardest part of the job was the fact that the shifts for the associates were never the same from day to day or even week to week. However at the time that I worked for them they offered several benefits (monetary and health).

False Facade of compassion toward employees.
Building Materials Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Orleans, ON28 April 2018
The Home Depot boasts it's excellence as an employer, but as soon as the training is over you begin to realize that they're just another corporate conglomerate which squeezes what little they can out of their employees' benefits, salary, and opportunities in order to increase quarterly profits. They refuse to show leniency and compassion even towards the most dedicated and valuable employees while expecting an increasing amount of knowledge, skills and work from those on the bottom. Apply at your own peril.
Pros
Knowledge of home improvement.
Cons
You're just a number in a subsection of their quarterly expenditures, as well as a variety of other issues.

IT Developer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON23 April 2018
Everyone I met at The Home Depot was welcoming and easy to work with. The IT team I worked with worked hard and played hard all the time. The four month co-op I spent at Home Depot was a great learning experience.

Great coworkers, poor management
Associate (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON19 April 2018
Despite part time status job expects you to be readily available to cover sick calls with minimal notice. Coverage on the floor is typically poor leaving you to scramble to help customers. HR in this company is typically very unhelpful - in my dealings with them no resolution was ever met and they seemed preoccupied with silencing any issues brought up to them. No matter how many skills you acquire, ex machinery operating licenses, knowledge of multiple departments or store systems, your pay WILL NOT increase. Pay raise is restricted to a few cents per year, unless your job title is changed. The workers at this store and 95% of the time amazing people who have many interesting insights into their areas of expertise or even just life in general. It is a shame the management and employee care is so poor

a little better than other retail jobs
Appliance Sales (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC18 April 2018
Just mediocre, need it for paying your bills, hoping you'll move on from it soon. Mostly consists in standing on your feet all day long on a cement floor and walking up and down the aisles, up and down the ladder to get stock down and answering interminable questions.
Pros
Staff is quality people as they're carefully selected
Cons
Low wages that aren't consistent with the effort you put in

lot associate/Cashier/Service desk associate (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC14 April 2018
has the same downsides as most retail jobs, however the associates are close knit and really keep the atmosphere nice to work in.

managment really appreciates when you go the extra mile and shows it. The are very good at handling sensitive issues like health accommodations and harassment issues.

Tiring but good benefits
Department supervisor (Former Employee) –  Squamish, BC10 April 2018
The benefits are the best I've ever had but they come at a price. Very high stress job with little support. Unreliable associates don't get reprimanded and good associates end up doing extra work to pick up the slack without any recognition. Agreed upon schedules are adhered to which is nice and no after hours phone calls is definitely a perk. Lots of provided training and staff are treated reasonably well with treats of food and prizes on occasion (management excluded).
Pros
Benefits
Cons
No recognition

Great Place to work
Over Night Freight (Former Employee) –  Langford, BC5 April 2018
Great place to work lots of lifting so if you have a problem lifting stuff then this would not be the place for you. I worked the night shift so it was great and the people were friendly and helpful. You have to be able to work independently and as a team to make sure things get done. The manager was cool very easy going and easy to talk to if you had any concerns or issues.
Pros
Great pay and benefits, Great people to work with.
Cons
On your feet all the time, Lots of lifting
