Pros: great pay, great benefits, and great atmosphere to work in.
Cons: one manager was impossible to please.
I loved working for the Home Depot! I worked as an Over night stock person, to start, for 6 months. I would stock shelves, clean the store before opening time, learned to operate a fork lift, cherry picker, and any other equipment needed to do my job. It was hard work but I worked hard (I was one of two females on a full man crew). I then went to days – more... and worked as a garden associate only for a short while, but learned what was good for your yard, what were great products, how to design your yard to be well manicured, and even worked in the tree tent during christmas time. Shortly after christmas I was asked by another department manager to go to Deliveries, This was the best job out of all of them! I was all over the store, filling orders for customers, and made sure the other orders got on the delivery truck. During the summer of 2007 I became a lot tech loading cars wth sod, fertiziler, rock, and mulch. Most of the managers were great, a few were unreasonable, and majority of my co workers wer fantastic to work with. The hardest part of my job was the heat during the summer, but the most enjoyable part of my job was the infinite opportunities for work during my career. – less
