Pros: Occasional free lunches and multiple breaks in the day
Cons: I felt it was difficult to move up
A typical day at work would involve myself and other freight members sorting freight into the store's different departments onto carts and then rolling them out there to stock them. Sometimes you would also have to operate equipment, but that's just something that comes with any warehouse job. I learned some nice organization skills as well as some people skills. The only really negative thing I could say about management is they pick favorites, as does everyone, and the only bad guy at the store I was at is gone now. My co-workers at The Home Depot were great. Everyone is really friendly and talkative and always willing to help each other. The hardest part of the job aside from moving up would have to be stopping to help customers ALL the time. I worked on freight team, so it's only natural I should be spending my time at work putting up all the freight that came in that day; however, this was made extremely difficult due to entire store being understaffed and the store manager refusing to make us overnight like every other freight team in the district, so very often was I putting my job on hold to help customers who couldn't even find another employee in any department. The nicest parts of the job though would have to be the ability to wear what you want after the store closed, the very nice and cool work environment, and the bonus check you get every 6 months. All in all though, it is a great place to work especially if you are wanting something long term.
