Order Picker/Cashier and Service Desk (Former Employee) –  Parry Sound, ON19 November 2018
Great place to work, amazing atmosphere and the work/life balance was incredible. They constantly worked with you, never against you. Training was always provided and they assured me to always ask questions and reach out when in need. A work place you most definitely can grow in.
Pros
amazing benefits
Cons
small lack of support

Great people unfortunate hours assignments
Full Time Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Langley, BC7 November 2018
The people at The Home Depot are fantastic to work with. Unfortunately hours distribution is done on the success level, meaning that there aren't enough hours to get the sales to get more hours.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Part time work may not be for students.

Vault Associate/Scheduling Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB7 November 2018
Treat associates fairly. When minimum wage increased, unlike many employers, Home Depot did NOT cut hours or benefits. Hours of work vary from week to week.
Pros
bi yearly profit share
Cons
no set hours

High Turnover
Retail Associate (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON6 November 2018
High turnover rate. Its good if you are in school because they will work around your school schedule. Departments are often under staffed, leading to stress.

(Part-Time) Great job culture, and easy to get sucked in to, don't fall for it
Lumber, Service Desk, Deliveries (Current Employee) –  Ontario6 November 2018
This is a good place to have a part time, and that's it. Working here for 2 years, I have gone from wanting to have a career at the store, to leaving as soon as my contract ends. The Home Depot culture masks itself as great and cheery, but little do you know they are milking you as much as they can.

Your day to day is clock in, help as much people as you can, get out. The only issue is while you work, you have to deal with the drama of other employees, and sometimes jerk supervisors.

You get rewards and you get to form a belief that you can stay there forever, but at the end of it, it is not worth it. They will try to cross train you in more than one department, sure you get more hours, but you're also a patching the problem that the store is understaffed; therefore you can go a full shift with no break coverage. The pay is not the greatest as well, what else can you expect from retail. I know someone that has been working as a sales associate for 20 years, and they are only making $21 an hour. Management as well is not always on you side. Each department supervisor is considered a manager, so at the end of the day you have almost 20 bosses. Another pet peeve of management, is lack of accountability. This then resonates to the whole store. There is definitely a big "not my fault" culture.

Although it seems are also benefits from working here. The managers try there best to make everything seem happy. You also get things like health benefits which can help a lot. Tuition reimbursement is a big plus, it is actually the reason I am there. If you are a person who likes
  more... to work, then this is the job for you. You get pushed to work hard.  less
Pros
Great HR, Benefits, Tuition Reimbursement
Cons
Lack of Accountability Culture, Low Pay, Understaffed, Too Many Managers

Decent place to work if you want to advance your career.
Tool Rental Technician (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON1 November 2018
Management isn't the best but what they lack in skills they make up for in workplace fun activities. Benefits are good even for part timers. Hitting ridiculous credit card quotas by weeks end in a place that has become over saturated with people that already own said cards is the hardest part. But the weekly bbqs and fun treats every two weeks make up for it.

Cashier/Overnight Freight (Former Employee) –  Stoney Creek, ON24 October 2018
Not much room to advance, especially as a female. Hours are all over the place and usually mid day, good place to work as a kid in high school or first job. Can mind your own in this environment for the most part, good benefits and bonuses. Management is always changing but did learn a lot of things about basic home skills going forward

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.
Pros
Na
Cons
Literally everything

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
