I learned how to multi task by speaking with customers and accomplishing my tasks at the same time.The pay is not competitive. When I started my plan was to be an ideal employee and hopefully move up within the company. My immediate co-workers were nice and fairly good workers. The low level management above us was awful. They were scattered and as unprofessional as can possibly be. There is essentially no way to be recognized for hard work when you are working under layers of incompetence. Luckily I figured this out quickly and landed a job elsewhere. Hardest part of my job was seeing my pay stubs. I was hardly making money considering the cost of gas and food. Although we all got along at work morale was low. I'm happy to be out of there and have steered a few folks away from applying. I feel as though home depot management is very selective. They promote associates based on favoritism. It is hard to speak to someone when you're having issues and even harder to get them to care. As a cashier, you will be faced with needy customers all day long. Most customers a pleasurable though. Only work here to gain valuable experience, great benefits, and OK starting pay. Do not make this a long term career unless you were lucky enough to be a favorite.
