Efficient workplace where you are working on your own unloading merchandise from a pallet in designated aisles.
Freight Team Associate (Former Employee) – Ashburn, VA – October 13, 2016
Working at Home Depot was a positive work experience for myself. It was hard work that was rewarding. Typically the freight team would start the shift by unloading pallets full of merchandise off of the delivery truck, then designate the merchandise based on the aisles each item goes into. Then we would split up into aisles unloading the merchandise.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Orange Park, FL – December 1, 2016
Expected to work every weekend and holidays part time. Requested one weekend off in six months and was cut from 38 hours per week to 20 hours per week. They showed me exactly how they respected their part time employees. If you like politics at the workplace this is for you. Qualifications mean nothing. It's all about who "likes" you. They put plumbers in garden, carpenters in paint, and electricians in lumber.
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – December 1, 2016
Home depot is a great place to learn how to run a business. They are a very tech savy company and put a lot of time into training leadership skill. It can be a challenge to find a balance between the schedule requirements and family life.

As a home depot lot associate you are the first and last team member customers see. It is your your duty to give customers a warm welcome as they enter the store. Other responsibilities include assisting customers with merchandise to their vehicles.
Sales Associate/Department Supervisor/Key Carrier (Current Employee) – Miami, FL; Newark, DE – December 1, 2016
The Home Depot does have decent benefits. Coworkers are the best part of the job, with pleasant customers being the second. Management/constantly changing policies & procedures is the worst. From month to month you don't know how your job will be changed, and the communication between managers is usually non-existent.

Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Vancouver, WA – November 30, 2016
I enjoy working with the customers & co-workers. As a front end cashier it's face pace! I work throughout the front end at various positions, returns, pro-cashier, & self checkout!! I assist the service desk as well, answering the phones, releasing orders, & assisting customers with various issues!! I opened over 300 credits from 12/2014 to present. The store manager acknowledges my excellent customer service & other various dept. Heads. Hardest part of job is trying to make younger employees respect experience of older employees
STORE MANAGER REWARDS EMPLOYEES WITH AWARDS, LUNCHES & RECOGNIZES GOOD WORKERS
INCONSISTENT BREAKS/LUNCH SCHEDULE, THERE'S A PRINTED SCHEDULE BUT NOT UTILIZED PROPERLY
I have loved my time with this company and do find that it is very enjoyable to work in most stores. I do find the pay to be a little low especially for those that take their own time to learn new skills and receive extra training to not receive a pay raise. I will warn you that if you are part time (I am not) that hours for the most part are very limited through most of the year with the exception of holidays (off seasons you can get as low as 6 hours for the week to 18 hours). You also will not receive benefits if you are only part time. The good thing is that they do work with school and child care situations as long as you have the paper work to back up your needs.
great people, good management and great for job experience
not many oppurtunities to advance within the company.
A local hardware store where everyone can shop and find things they are looking for but you will most the of time find a lot of contractors and others
Cashier (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – November 30, 2016
a typical day at home depot is very busy theirs never a slow day there. You get to meet different kinds of people there everyday and depending on how long you have work there you learn something new about different products from different departments such as, hardware, plumbing, lumber and so on. My job in the store is to check customers out as they finish finding what they need and presenting excellent customer service. You have to be a friendly and fast paced person to work here because lines get crazy and keeping a customer happy and not leaving our store upset is apart of our job. The most enjoyable part is to be able to make the customers experience in our store the best even if they had a hard time finding a item we are there to help and make them feel better and want to come back and shop and maybe look for you especially when they come.
Flooring/Paint specialist, Team depot/Kids Captain (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – November 30, 2016
I loved my job as I was trained in multiple departments. I was also the store captain of the community outreach programs. Great coworkers as well! Management was great the first couple years. Our store was #1 in the district which, given the location, was really awesome! However, they brought in a new store manager and she basically fired all the ASMs and brought in her own people. Our store #s dropped almost immediately. A lot of the full-timers also expressed repeated concerns as they felt they were being pushed out of the company,
Awesome community outreach, working directly with people
