anonymous said: I also lost my job as an IMA. It was just terminated and I had to reapply as an IMS [same job] and take a pay cut of more tham $6.00 an hour. I refuse to take the pay cut and nothing else was available except parttime. After 19 years in the company you would think they would try to do something for me. I made the mistake of trying to keep my foot in the door at age 61 [not really that old] and I can work circles around most of them, by working the freight team, parttime. Now I probably won't be going back because my immune system is shot and I have phlebitus in my leg. I really feel sorry for the Hr's, especially the ones who are new at the job and went through all that training only to find out they may not have a job. Home Depot is not the company of choice anymore. It used to be a great place to work and I enjoyed it all but now it's just like everyplace else.

I myself have been working with the HD for a little over three years and have been "bent over" many of times. I have had to take two paycuts. Once for a botched tranfer (the store I wanted to go to didn't even know about me transfering, instead I was terminated and had to reapply) The second paycut came when I transferd to another store that did not have any positions available for "my pay rate" in operations so I had to be a cashier. I then took on the job as an Inventory Specialist only to find out it was a lateral move from cashiering eventhough I do a million more things than a cashier does and ONE less thing than an IMA did (we don't order). Thanks Home Depot for keeping me just above the poverty level.

Bruce A. in Carrollton, Texas said: Don't waste your time with Home Depot. I too have applied for several upper level (Corporate) positions for which I met or exceeded every stated requirement. No replies, nothing. I remember when HD was "contractor only" 30 plus years ago. It was a great place until (name removed) was hired. Go figure how a cola company exec goes to run a DIY chain. Under (name removed), HD has lost market share, the stock is down, and I never see happy employees anymore. Don't waste your time as I did with application...they only hire for senior positions from within. The postings are bogus - a way to get benchmarks in salaries, etc. Heard that from a former HD senior HR type in Dallas regional.

I kno this was posted a LONG time ago, but I must add to this because it frustrates me a bit. I work with Home Depot... Yes i agree its a long process to get with the home depot but its all well worth it. so my advice is DONT be lazy if you want a job bad enough you will do what it takes to get that job. Call them... everyday. Call them even when they say they are gonna call you back. They like that! They like to see you have interest in working with the company! The home depot is a great place to work and is ALWAYS hiring a great diversity of people. They have EXCELLENT benefits... PT or FT. The tuition grants for schooling, they have discounts on cellular plans, discounts on fitness centers, and great medical, vision, and dental insurance! I absolutely love it. While working with HD you always get a chance to move up in the company... if youd like! Sooo in conclusion its SUCH a GREAT place to work for that no one wants to ever leave. So if they dont have any positions available its because everyone stays with them forever! My opinion is bug the crap out of them till yur blue in the face and get the job!! :) **Remember drug screening is apart of hire, rehire, or promotions within the company. :D

readytowork2008 in North Carolina said: With the conversations going on here. No one has discussed HD cutting all of the HR jobs out of the stores supposedly to put more aprons on the floor. They didn't even give them a couple months notice. They told them after spring hiring was completed when they knew the HR jobs would be cut last year.

Any HD HR MGRS out there?

How do some of you HD employees feel about this?

I just think this is a pain to not have a HR... only because the HR is the go to person for new hires, and now its harder than ever to get hired on. YOu have to really call and make them set up interviews with u, if u want the job! HR was better, but what are we gonna do...? BTW thanx for mentionin this.. i went thru all these comments and was about to say the same thing.. :D

So far everything you're saying does make sense. I applied and waited about a week or so, I didn't hear anything so I called them. The next day I got a phone call and set up an interview. Once the interview was over I was told they were going to start calling people by the end of the week. Instead I called them and they offered me the job! I went for my drug test, so now I'm just waiting for the background check results to get in..does anyone know how long it all takes?

Question: How do other associates find out what other associates are making. I see a lot of comments on how "newbees"
are making more an hour than experience associates. Shouldn't salary be private? Or, is there a leak at Home Depot that tells employees what others make? I see this as a serious morale issue in some stores that comment. Just my opinion. I'll be starting employment with HD shortly and I do not know how my starting salary stacks up against the people that are already there,
and if my salary is better than some, I wouldn't want to make to feel uncomfortable working there because other employees find out behind my back how much I make.

actually, its pretty easy to get that info, most dept heads know what their sales associates make and sometimes they spill the beans, also I'm pretty sure you can get it on my apron under managers tools but who cares, everyone is under paid and overworked, just some more so than others. but don't get me wrong, I love my job and I'm pretty well paid, but this is the first job where I didn't have to force myself to get up in the morning to get to work. I work in a pretty awesome store and the management is pretty cool, definitely not the case everywhere, sometimes you can transfer to a better store, talk to your regional dh...

I can beat that, I make $26.50 as a master electrician specialist and my cap is $32.00 but I'm not holding my breath for a huge raise, especially with the economy, also my store started doing its anual sweeps where everyone who has a lot of attendance points gets suddenly terminated, 6 people today, and rumor has it that there will be more coming...with the job market out there, how dumb is it to get fired for stupid lateness and attendance issues, so y'all watch your butts out there.

Galen Joyce in Acworth, Georgia

I have worked for Wal-Mart, Kohl's, Ingles, Target, and Home Depot, for over eight years, and have worked for both Wal-Mart and Home Depot for two years each. Lower level HD associates can expect to make from 6.50 to 10 an hour while head cashiers and above till management can make from 10 to 22 an hour. The highest pay goes to long time associates, and specialists/supervisors. most people make from 8 to 12 dollars an hour. The company in the past few weeks has been stripping pay from those it beleives are payed too much for thier positions, but save those people, and the lackluster raise environment, the company is the same as when I arrived. They brought back merit badges which means if you are a customer kiss ass, you can make an extra 50 bucks here and there. Outside of that, the inventory system is dated and creates a third of your work related issues. customer satisfaction is another third, and general job dissatisfaction is the last third. Most associates there feel they are undervalued, and undercompensated, which creates most of the quality issues customers cite when coming. the atmosphere is much more casual than at a Wal-Mart with a higher level of respect from the customers, albeit not much more. All in all, it is an excellent transitional position as far as retail is concerned, but to make it a career, have a bachelors in business administration and be prepared to work for a year or two doing three times the work you get paid for. Cheers! It is also a great resume builder for the retail professional.

RyanMac517 in Lansing, Michigan said: I'm 17 years old and i'll be turning 18 next year. I dropped out of school and got my GED. I'm waiting until I turn 18 to get a job because here in Michigan you can't work full time under 18. I was thinking about working nights full time at home depot stocking the shelves or something. Does anyone know what thats like or has anyone ever worked at HD doing this? Is it easy work or do you have to do everything?

News flash, there's no more night shift. you can still be on the freight team but they only work from either 8pm till midnight, or the pack down team from 6am till 10. it's easy work allright but they still can't manage to get it all done on time. I repeatedly have to complain to the freight team supervisor cause his guys keep throwing all my merchandise into the overhead where it can't be found, behind other stuff, and with no sku numbers on boxes.

that posting still mentions the old freight team, the overnight was cut in most stores now they have either late shift or early shift, and you could expect around 7 bucks an hour

Keep in mind that many salaries differ from state to state. Hope this information was able to help you out.

Is that the salary during the 90 Day Probation? Would there be an increase in the salary after 90 Days when they hire you?

Im not sure what everyone is complaining about. I have several years of retail experience, applied online over the weekend and was called within 2 days for an interview. Went in for interveiw and was offered a job all in less than a week. yes I am over qualified, but Im not asking for $15 hr either. As a matter of fact they are working around my schedule. I guess it all depends on the what experience and what you are expecting as well. Im looking forward to start working for a company who is about helping a customer versus milking them for every dime that they cant afford to spend. Besides, with this economy, a job is a job. im greatful to have found something and to get a paycheck and pay my bills.

I just had my interview today at contractor department (home renovation programm of Kitchen and Bath) as an in-home measurer and estimator (retail sale and coordination). They offered me 7% from the final invoice (total), $35.00 per lead, $70.00 a week for gas, cell phone and a lot of leads. No base. Everything goes through mail and email. I m trying to find some information about this position. Maybe anyone can help. They do all installation service ONLY for home depot.

I am considering taking a job at Home Depot that was offered in an e-mail to me over the weekend. I would greatly appreciate feedback from someone who knows the store in Amherst, Ohio. I have had several HARRASSING bosses in the past few years and I really want to try and avoid another job where I feel like less than a human being and end up quitting because there's no mutual respect, so now I'm doing some research. I wouldn't be full time because I'm finishing my degree soon so hopefully I wouldn't have to be there long anyways. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Applicants: Fill out online application. Bring resume to store. Talk to Manager and HR Manager. Interview. Pass Drug Test. Start work within 10 days.

After the worst year of my life, looking for a new start, I was hired as a sales associate. I have a great college degree and many years of experience in the trades, management, sales, and self employment. I was looking for a job to pay the bills and keep my head above water, and instead found myself in a potential career. I started as a plumbing associate at $9/hr. Fortunately, my experience in trades and contracting allowed me to excell at helping customers, and a strong work ethic garnered attention in my efforts to downstock, face, and organize my department. I enjoy the people I work with, and I enjoy helping people solve their problems. I smile, say hello to customers and associates, and apply FIRST principles in my workday. From my prior experience in the trades, I know the store and products better than almost anyone else in the store, so I'm able to help in any department. I keep busy and the day goes by quickly. Within a few months, I'm bumped to Flooring Specialist at $12/hr. I was top seller for the month and a half I was there. Now I've been moved up to a brand new Pro Paint Sales Specialist position at $16/hr after a half-hour interview with the District Manager and District Ops Manager. I told them I was interested in moving up in the company, and apparently my hard work has been noticed. They hinted that I was a top candidate for an upcoming ASM position. The associates and management at my store are good people, and most are hard workers. Sorry for the diatribe, but the point is, if you are not afraid of work, have a good head on your shoulders, enjoy interacting with and helping people, and have a have the ability to push through the gauntlet, the sky is the limit. Take initiative and be proactive. I never thought I could handle working in a corporate retail setting, but I LIKE it!

The hiring process at Home Depot starts with an automated phonecall from a bogus number, if you answer you will be given an automated phone interview, at the end of the interview you should speak with someone. I got the call within two weeks after appling, had I not answered that unknown number I never would have known they called. You can also follow up with a personal visit to the store following ur phone interview to see if you can speak to a manager about a one on one hiring interview. Home Depot is a decent company to work, for, I actually enjoy it, but the best positions are promoted internally but u gotta start someplace. Good luck to you all that apply I received a call from both of the depot stores I had applied for in between moving. Tomorrow the 20th is my 1st anniversary there.

If you want to avoid being treated less then a human being go ahead and sign up to work at the Depot. Be prepared to do tasks that are positions higher up then what you are and what your getting paid for, for no raise. be prepared to do the jobs of at least 3+ workers because of corporate isn't giving out hours for the employees to fill, therefore if your the one working this particular night they figure you can just do the job of the two other people plus yours for no pay raise in the same amount of time that it takes to just do your job, just so the ceo's can cash in on that extra money from cutting hours. and alot of people complain to each store but where people need to complain is the ceo, the people way at the top that are deciding this crap. thats not how to run a business. thats immoral to have people move up in the store with no pay raise. everybody that i know is moving up in the store and can't even get a .10 cent raise. that's disguisting. that certainly makes me feel less than a human being so quite acting like home depot is such a great place frank ceo. your not human. but i am.

Host said: What are the average starting salaries, bonuses, benefits and travel requirements like at Home Depot ?
What do you like best about working at Home Depot? Are there any great perks or special treats for employees?

starting salary. around $ 8.75 - 9.50
bonus. the only people who get bonus are managers and then some of the departments heads and people up there get a small bonus on which they call success sharing. if your store is lucky enough to qualify for success sharing 2 times a year, say an average of $85,000 is usually the average that is dispersed between the employees for that store. sounds great up front, but your wrong. the 3 store managers will get most of that right off of the bat. say about $7-10,000 each. great for them but what about the people that actually run the store and generate those dollars. well, there just suckers. the department heads and such get about say $500-$700 a piece. and all the little ants in the store will be so lucky if they get $30-$70. can't really call that a bonus.the only people who get bonus are the managers.
benefits. they have benefits, but prepare to have half of your hard earned pay check go straight to benefits, AFTER taxes are taken, so you only see 30% of your actual pay check and on top of that you still have high co pays.
travel requirements. if you are a manager at some time you will have travel. you will have to travel to nearby cities for you to "temporarily" fill loose positions at other stores in nearby cities that can last up to 2 or 3 more years. which sounds to me like a permanent basis. you will not get any gas funds, all out of your pocket. and the extra 45 min drive each way to work and then home on top of the 11 hour work day turning your work day into 13 hours.
best thing about working at Depot? I really wish i could say something good, but i honestly cant think of anything.
perks of working there? nope,no discount just the success sharing,lol

I agree totally with you. I was hired in one of the HD in Raleigh and I enjoyed every moment. My team worker were very helpful. My ASDS was a great person.
To be able to work in retails where the customers is our meaning for being there we need to be a peoples person. One must always have in a positive additude. If one want to achieve goals one most work hard for them. HD does give you the opportunity step up based on the knowledge and the training you have.

I applied online for a customer service position with Home Depot Monday October 21. I received an e-mail October 21 saying I would be contacted by phone for initial interview October 22. Got the interview call October 22 and was scheduled for an interview at the store tomorrow October 23 at 2 pm. What people are saying here about age being a factor is not true either. I am 63 years old and they are considering me.

If you do not get a response from them it is only because of the way you filled out the online application and answered their online test you take to complete the application.

Wow! After reading some of these comments, obviously some people have had bad experiences with the stores they've worked in. I recently transferred to a new store and both of the stores I've been in were pretty awesome. Of course with any retail job, jobs in general, there are bad days and always bad customers. Success sharing is nice, I've gotten up to $175 in one Success Sharing check as a part time cashier. I've also gotten $250 as an All-Star associate. I'm not a kiss ass and the management doesn't favor me. I just do what I'm supposed to do and I get recognized for it. Now maybe my stores have just been something amazing. I'm within a couple hours drive of Atlanta, so maybe a close watch is kept or something, I don't know. All I have to say is that if you just started and are having a hard/bad time, give it time or get out and stop complaining. Be thankful you have a job. Home Depot tends to be pretty selective, especially in non peak times, so the management must have seen potential in you.

Since no one else said it, I will Bob Nardelli almost put Home Depot into the ground just like with Chrysler after that. 210 million to leave is absurd! He is a cancer that is truly one of the Worst CEOs in America. That doofus had the nerve to go to the Capitol to ask for tax payer bailout money in his corporate jet to get his company from sinking and failing like he the failure that he is. Now Home Cheapo is paying the price for that horrible decision in closing those 10 or 11 stores in the height of the recession and now only hiring part time, seasonal to save on benefits and now with Obamacare, since the minimum under the law is 29 hours that you have to offer benefits to an employee, they do otherwise and don't offer 29 and overwork you and keep you under 29 to save money and benefits.

I'm thinking about joining HD in a senior position however I am curious as to how other employees feel about the bonus system? Apparently bonuses are paid out over 4 yrs with 50% after the 2nd year and the balance after the 4th year. This appears a little excessive compared to other employers I have been with. I understand if it is applied to senior Execs as they are the deicion makers; but is this the norm for all salaried employees?

Thanks

I'm not sure what kind of senior position that you are looking at but I can tell you that at the store level only store managers and assistant managers are salaried positions.Both these positions have the opportunity to bonus twice a year. These bonuses occur after the end of each fiscal half of the company. One of the bonuses is based off your personal performance and is decided by your store manager and district manager, if you are an assistant and by just the district manager if you are the store manager. The other bonus is based on the stores performance. One of the bonuses is presented in stock shares and the other is disbursed as check. The potential of the 2 combined is up to 20% of your pay but this is potential with great performance personally as well as the store meeting profit goals. I hope this helps. Been with HD 9 years
