Flooring Specialist (Current Employee) – West Covina, CA – October 21, 2017
I would come in and create a to do list of my department to see what needed to be done. Multitasking by helping customers and trying to get things done in the department. Also working clean to provide safety for all customers.
If working with a bunch of new part time associates sounds appealing to you, then The Home Depot is the place for you. With management no where to be found, and employee knowledge lacking - it is almost impossible to finish a shift without issues.
Inventory Management (Former Employee) – Olean, NY – October 21, 2017
One of my three managers and myself butt heads often, and he decided it would be cool to change my inputs in the inventory system. Led to write ups and intimately my termination. Otherwise a pretty decent place to work.
Toy store for grown men
Unequal balance of work among associates, heavily political management
Cashier customer service (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – October 21, 2017
Customer service training was good. Support was weak when it came to employees. Favoritism was high. Must work weekends no matter what. Hard to get time off even when requested in advance. Inconsistant among all managers in every department.
Flooring Associate (Former Employee) – Great Falls, MT – October 21, 2017
All days are busy. I learned about square footage for cutting carpets. I learned how to cut mini-blinds (Metal/Plastic/Wood). I learned about tile products and different types of tile (Ceramic/Porcelain/Slate). I got to know all products in the flooring department/paint department. Very family orientated culture, helpful, caring workplace. The hardest part of the job was climbing the tall ladders, but that is a personel thing i had to overcome and did. Most enjoyable part of my job was helping the customers and my manager keep the department stocked, cleaned, and customer ready for any customers DIY projects.
Flexible work hours.
Schedule to work more than 7 days straight before days off.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Pottstown, PA – October 21, 2017
District manager and manager made the rules up as they went along. Favoritism ran ramp it. Transferred to get rid of managers, went out the way to fire all the employees with tenure. Successfully be the way
part time cashier (Current Employee) – north miami beach – October 21, 2017
It's great working there from the co-workers to the great head-cashiers and the very friendly management. The only thing that get tricky is the credit card applications that about it. Other than that its great to work there.
we sometimes get free lunch, cashier appreciation month
no breaks apart from the lunch break one gets, being reprimanded for not getting enough credi card applications
Pro-Services Customer Associate (Current Employee) – Alexandria, VA – October 21, 2017
Its best feature was that the home depot was real diverse. Another plus to working there is that you have a option to migrate departments every 6-8 months. There was little to no career advancement opportunity at my location.
The store had a cook-out for the entire staff for employee appreciation
little to no career advancement opportunity at my location.
Not really my atmosphere, associates were sometimes rude, management wasn't really doing what management needed to do. At times I felt as if I was the manager when the manager would make me do the paperwork he was assigned to do
Appliances Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Concord, CA – October 20, 2017
