Cash Office Associate (Former Employee) – Yorba Linda, CA – May 17, 2017
I was only part time while working here. I used to get the cash ready for the registers in the morning and get bank deposit ready. Home Goods had a lot of interesting stuff due to the fact it had everything from different cultures
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Visalia, CA – May 17, 2017
Had problems with key carrier on personal level, offensive to me, management did nothing about it. Customers are nice, products good. I enjoyed the first few months just fine, but the hours kept shifting and then were based on credit card sales and end up only getting four hours a week and just didn't work out for me.
Randomly gave us lunches
Work meant nothing when you don't sell cards, you can be good at everything else but they don't care unless you didn't sign people up for cards.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – May 14, 2017
Management handles situations poorly and are only partially attentive to their associates needs. Very unorganized store and system. The job itself isn't difficult but the work environment can make it more difficult.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Lawrenceville, GA – May 9, 2017
Experienced how a new store comes together, worked together as a team to accomplish our day to day goals. Management made sure to answer any questions we had, provided fast assistance to customers when needed.
Coordinator (Former Employee) – Edina, MN – May 8, 2017
Very busy go-go environment. Constantly re-doing displays, helping with putting new product out, always on your feet. Training could be more hands on. Cashiering as needed. Lots of cool stuff in every department.
Meet nice people, holiday friendly, lots of cool things, employee discount is ok, business casual dress code
Work schedule is all over the place, management is usually not the best, not much room for advancement, lots of carry outs(rugs, furniture etc), sometimes your clothes get ruined(don't wear anything to nice), lots of heavy lifting and sweating! No life outside work
Furniture coordinator/stockroom team member (Former Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – May 7, 2017
My time at HomeGoods was spent working as part of a team to accomplish daily tasks and meet all company standards and requirements. My managers were always helpful with any questions any of my team members or I had and worked hands-on with us daily. Over all I thoroughly enjoyed my time with this company.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Holland, MI – May 7, 2017
The most enjoyable part of the job has to be your fellow associates. The people that make up the company are by far the best people I have ever met. They are helpful and very laid back when it comes to talking and getting to know them, yet they maintain a very good work ethic and push you to be better.
Front End & Cash Office Associate (Former Employee) – Columbia, SC – May 4, 2017
This was my first job while in college. It provided me with many on-site learning experiences regarding customer service and responsibilities. I enjoyed my time here and have used many of the skills I learned since I left.
Cashier (Former Employee) – San Luis Obispo, CA – May 4, 2017
At HomeGoods I would mainly be assigned as cashier and had to solicit credit for every customer. The managers had different ideas of how to do the job and would not care about your individual style of working.
Management was rude to many of my coworkers but kind to me. He also was not very kind to customers and I received numerous complaints about him.
The store did not have anyone to clean the store so I volunteered to help out for a short time. However, they never had anyone else trained for the position so I was quickly burnt out since I was the only one who cleaned the entire store and was only given two or three hours to do a task I had never done before.
Because of the cleaning job I was required to do on top of the cashiering and whatever other department they assigned I would go home in tears and wake up hating my job. Management was not organized at all and would look down on people who had two jobs.
After about four months I quickly got a new job and quit. When I went in to give my two weeks I was punished for quitting and not given many hours at all. On top of that, even though I had been a good employee, I would be given disapproving looks by my manager.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Jefferson, GA – May 4, 2017
I was a ticketer then trained to be their clerk for almost a year but wanted more experience so trained to be a forklift driver. We would sometimes run out of work and they would call overtime when it was not needed. Really didn't make their employees feel appreciated enough.
