Merchandising Execution Team (Current Employee) – Ashburn, VA – February 10, 2016
The Home Depot is an easy work location. The work is not overly complicated and the staff is also easy to get along with. The job does require a lot of standing and walking. Benefits are available and the company has a support system to aid employees if they should experience severe life challenges. Overall, I would definitely recommend The Home Depot to others, good company.
Home Depot is a nice place to work. The culture of store is sort of like a family and always very welcoming. I love my job there because you get to help people, especially with design questions. I love working in a store that provides everything and anything you would need for a remodel. I can go to paint and pick out wall color, head over to flooring to pick out a new hardwood or backsplash tile, and then go to kitchens to pick out cabinets and countertops.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – March 24, 2016
It is a fun place to work with great surprises. Profit sharing is great and many ways of celebrating with food, games and rewards. Management is great and helpful. The store is loaded with great employees. I'm very proud to be a part of this store.
The downfall is lack of hours. They give very few hours yet hire, more and more people. Finding help when needed can be sometimes difficult.
Overall a decent place to work.
Fun times, Nice surprises and rewards, including a great profit sharing
Lack hours yet keep hiring. The help gets hard to get at times in the departments

As an associate, but with a demonstrated knowledge and interest in a specific area, plus product knowledge training and individual development programs, you could rise to specialist, department supervisor and into store management. And that’s just one path your retail career at The Home Depot could take.

Sales Associate/Cashier/Freight Team Member (Current Employee) – Bartlett, IL – March 20, 2016
I spent almost a year with the home depot as a part time employee. The day was different every time as they moved me around from department to department. But the culture of the store was always phenomenal. When I left for school I transferred to a different Home Depot store and found that the same held true. The most enjoyable part about going to work was that the people there are always friendly and willing to help out. Management was consistently understanding in even the most bizarre of circumstances. Most of the higher ups had began as sales associates so the company grows organically. The entire corportation truly felt and acted like a family.
Lot Associate (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – March 29, 2016
I believe that working at Home Depot has been a great experience. i learned how to adapt to a new working environment that I wasn't familiar with, I learned how to interact with new people and one of the key assets that I would say that I learned is how to deal with difficult customers. On a daily basis, I get to work with great coworkers, some of which I have befriended.
I always try to learn something new everyday, I like to keep things positive, when people don't show up for work. learning and getting to know the job

Lot Attendant (Jul-Mar)/Pro Loader (Mar-Now) (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – March 27, 2016
Sometimes employees have to face impatient or angry people, which is part of the job, I understand that, but when customers begin to blatantly lie about a situation or even start to speak ill of you behind your back...it kind of dampers everything you did for the day, unless you have a positive outlook on everything that happens, like me. I've learned that the hardest part of the job is also what makes it the most fun and exciting part of it. Going the whole nine yards with a customer brightens up theirs (as well as my own) day because they can see the hard work that I'm putting in to see their request through.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – April 28, 2016
The Home Depot is a well organize company that assist with advancing your career. Working at The Home Depot is truly a great experience, everyday at work we learn new things about the company and its product with thee help of management. Management is always there to help and assist in a difficult situation. My co-workers are great, we all work together to execute the job to the best of our ability.
Employee's do no respect one another. Management Did not appreciate the associates. Supervisors and managers looked at associates as workers and nothing more. Employee opinions and suggestions were never taken serious or followed up on. Associate training videos are inconsistent with actual work on the sales floor. Always a lack of department coverage. Employee egos got in the way of getting the job done. overall the home depot is a very unhealthy place to work.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – West Des Moines, IA – March 17, 2016
Working in The Tool Rental Department at The Home Depot was a very challenging job. Product knowledge on over 500 tools and equipment gave me the confidence to establish a rapport with new "weekend " customers and daily customers such as Contractors.Management provided me with the freedom to make quick decisions on my own.
The continuing education on new products and tools
Hours were very inconsistant. Open one day, close the next
Productive work place, quite, nice and friendly co-workers
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 28, 2016
Working at Home Depot was fun i met a lot of good friendly people. I learn so much about the process of customer service, i also learn how to manage my products better. My co-workers were the best, friendly and kind. The hardest part of the job was not being able to work more hours, but i enjoy assisting customer and working over-time the most.
Head Cashier/Special Services (Former Employee) – Greenville, SC – April 22, 2016
I loved being a supervisor. All the cashiers were always willing to team work, and kept a positive attitude. Learned something new every day. Enjoyed working with the public. Loved being the Customer Service Supervisor for 7 months, until I relocated.
Loved my Co-workers, enjoyed working with public.
The last two years I didn't have the support I needed from Management, which made my job very stressful.
Cashier/Customer Service Clerk (Current Employee) – Union City, CA – March 12, 2016
A typical day at work is dealing with stubborn and rude customers. I learned that equal opportunity is not true and favoritism is the name of the game. Management is lousy and managers are lazy. Co workers are fine. The hardest part of the job is dealing with insensitive managers and rude customers. The most enjoyable part is when there's a long cue of customers waiting to be checked out. I enjoy being busy.
Good environment, flexible schedule, strict policies
Loss Prevention Specialist (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 19, 2016
I worked as an LP for 1 year, and the management gave us a lot of freedom, but they expect high productivity from your side. The don't play around with the rules, if you have a mistake, you'd probably fired right in the spot.
Flexibility, decent pay, tuition rembursment
they encorage you to work weekends, holidays and they don't give you any chance to correct your mistakes, they just fire you
Lumber and Building Materials Associate (Current Employee) – Bee Cave, TX – March 13, 2016
High stress environment, poor management, high turnover employee rate, poor scheduling. Other departments dump their work on the lumber and building materials associates because they don't want to be trained in operating a forklift or reach making some of their duties impossible. My favorite part of the job is getting to help customers with their needs and seeing them leave legitimately happy and satisfied, knowing they have the right tools/materials for their project.
Cashier and Lot attendant (Current Employee) – Industry, CA – March 13, 2016
Everyday I learn about a product I had no knowledge of and figure out a new way to help customers. Management is always on their feet doing their best to make sure the store is running. The hardest part is helping someone who speaks a different language than me, but I do my best to make sure I help the customer in getting what they want. The best part of my job is seeing the customer leave satisfied because I helped them the best way that I could. At Home Depot we are a family and I enjoy working with all of them.
The store gives me a well balanced schedule
I get dirty a lot and have to wash my clothes more often than I usually do
lot associate (Former Employee) – Bristol, CT – April 2, 2016
i would get into work and first i would stock up all the carts that are not in correct place. i would also listen up on my walkie talkie for managers asking my help to help costumers load there cars with materials they purchased. i would also at the end of my shift have to clean the front of the store. the hardest part was the heavy lifting, but i enjoyed being able to work outside
Department Supervisor (Former Employee) – Newport News Virginia – March 11, 2016
This job tends to under staff the entire store, most of management is incompetent, they show up for a store meeting to discuss driving sales, getting credit cards. And then they go off hiding, only appearing to deal with upset customers. They don't offer adequate training, or time to complete your tasks. This location has seen changes in store managers multiple times over the past couple years.
Healthcare is overpriced, the hours suck, the pay sucks as well.
