Cashier (Former Employee) – Broomall, PA – April 25, 2017
Working at Homegoods was fun i love the people that i used to work with it was a fun experience , for example i use to work in the morning where i had to put the merchandise out and it was fun also i was the opening cashier . The part i enjoy most was the customers they made my day .
Compensation and morale low. Workload and stress consistently high. May be good for part-timers, like moms, to make a little extra cash on the side. Full-timers and management not experiencing even satisfactory job satisfaction. Management is, very obviously, under considerable and constant pressure.

I have to say that HomeGoods have one thing going for them and that's the people working for them. This was my first official job so it was a bit daunting but I remember during orientation the merchandising manager was going through our rules and regs. (i.e. like not to eat anyones food from the fridge) and stated that if you were hungry and didn't have food then tell him and he will buy you lunch. You have to keep in mind that the managers here don't make much more than everyone else so just that he offered was something I can't ever forget. The only bad thing was they're big on efficiency so if you don't meet the exact hours they need you won't be scheduled. Also you're timed for everything. How fast you build a lamp and how many. How many pieces of furniture you assemble and code, how fast you process the truck; everything is timed so you have to work hard and fast.
Required to sale credit cards to people. Required to clean toilets, clean up dog mess, work like a prisoner in a correctional facility. Mgt. needs to all be replaced. No mgt. style for productive employees to follow. Rude and condescending remarks and no accountability I in any manner. Lowest customer service scores in region is typical, month after month.

Working here was a good learning experience. I gained valuable knowledge that I will be able to apply in future career opportunities. Merchandising technics learned can and will be applied in future career experiences.

HomeGoods seems like a great place to work, but it's definitely not. There is no room for advancement even when I asked if I could be bumped up. Extremely stingy with only a very small discount. Unreasonable expectations that'll stress you out and make you go crazy. Management was good when started, but has gone severely downhill.
Merchandising Coordinator (Current Employee) – Gilbert, AZ – April 22, 2017
Understanding about call outs, but management is all over the place. Barley any hours given but new people are always being hired. Associates do not last more than 2 months here for those reasons. People constantly come and go..

Good prices, ok service and work. Like every job it has its ups and downs. Advancement is hard to do here. They do work well with school or home schedules, you sometimes need to stay on top of it though. They do seem to aspire to be or surpass the Bed Bath and Beyond culture. And with the prices they may do just that. Customer and Employee relations could use some work and support
Great co-workers and fun atmosphere but small conflicts
Sales Associate & Backroom Associate (Current Employee) – Tualatin, OR – April 19, 2017
I love the environment in Homegoods, all the associates are nice and helpful. Lunches and breaks are great but the pay is low especially for some of the tasks that must be accomplished. Managers are fun but can sometimes create small conflicts among the associates. Overall this is a great place to work at for short term.
Associate (Current Employee) – Lake Geneva, WI – April 19, 2017
I think the pay is excellent and just about every customer and other associate is friendly. It is just hard to get a lot of stable hours and I find that when the store is very busy it can become very stressful because we are expected to perform many duties.
Good pay, days requested off are typically given, everyone works well together
