Fun to work with coworkers but customers can be brutal
Plumbing Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Ashburn, VA – May 28, 2017
Scheduling really stinks if you have a busy life schedule so i wouldn't recommend. you learn a lot about all home improvement not just your department. hardest part is working with customers and knowing ALL the product locations. best part is its an open workspace that can be fun
The position for which I work I learned how to operate machinanery how to stock and maintain shelves. and how to have the store grand opening ready for customers meaning sweeping floors shelf maintenance and disposing of trash.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Aspen Hill, MD – January 17, 2018
Very low pay for hard labor job! Lack of hours. Lack of fulltime work. I worked there for over a year waiting for a full-time position to open. I was never given seniority when it became available. Instead, a new employee was hired to take that full-time position that opened up.
Was a very cut throat job in the sense it felt as if I was thrown on the floor just to fail.I had called off twice in one week due to throwing up and feeling nauseas on consecutive days to only end up being fired after that for “poor attendance”.At the end it was hard to learn when all you had was a computer teaching you everything else but the hands on work.
Freight Team Associate (Former Employee) – Emeryville, CA – January 16, 2018
I worked freight which I did not mind at all because that is what I was hired for, I also restock the shelves, broke down the boxes and put it in the bailer. I have done all of this before except power pack down in which a young lady who I felt was to young to be train to be an assistant Supervisor start yelling at me and cursing at me on my second day at work because we had to do power pack down all night Saturday night and we did not get off of work until 7 am Sunday morning.
Learning where the merchandise is located, Staying updated on the merchandise by taking a test on the computer every week
No-oneteaching you about Power Pack down, learning certain aisle on your own

Cashier (Current Employee) – El Cajon, CA – January 16, 2018
Everyday as a cashier I was require great the customers while they walked by or if they just enter the store as well as accurately ringing up the customer. I learned great people and problem solving skills that helped aid the company in sales production. The management was very understanding to work and personal related problems, they worked their hardest to accommodate the needs the employees and customers at all times. Although the most difficult part of the job was ringing up the customers at a fast pace all while doing it accurately. And at the same time was the most enjoyable part was it being fast paced all while interacting with the customers.

The home depot is an excellent company to work for. whether you want to earn a quick dollar, or grow within the company itself, home depot puts the power in your hands. a typical day at work consist of working the schedules for the store, processing interview packets and answering any calls that comes through the phone. I've learned how to manage my time and how to effectively work alongside cooperate and management to get a job done and overlook the needs of the business. The most enjoyable part of working for the home depot is being able to help the associates along with management and making a difference in the lives of my associates.
