I have 8 years in growing plants and applied for a garden shop position and have also never heard. Three weeks after I first saw the position advertised, I see where they are advertising again.

I would suggest calling the Home Depot office you applied to and ask for a confirmation that they have received your application.

I have the same experience. I have applied several times, and have not received any response. Yet, the job is then reposted a short time later. I am amply qualified for the position that I applied for. I don't understand their screening procedures.

Brandy said: Home Depot's Human Resource department has fostered itself to be comprised of poorly skilled, self serving individuals. They drive a culture that is survival of the fittest, so the focus is only on saving one's behind. There is no consideration of others. That's why they don't even invest a few pennies to provide a generic acknowledgement of appreciation for interest. It is not a good place to work.

I would have to say it is what you make of it. If you are willing to work and YOU choose to have a good attitude then you will love working for the Home depot. If are not willing to work then you will hate the job. It really is your choice. I believe this is a great company and a great place to have a career. Be the voice of positive and of good change.

I have also applied several times online to Home Depot. I also called the store that I applied to and was told they are not hiring even though they have jobs posted online for that store. I know that I am not STUPID, I know that I seen the positions posted but they aren't hiring? It seems that all companies do anymore these days is that they posted "fake jobs" to lure in candidates to apply but don't have any intention of hiring them. I interviewed at Lowes for an HR manager job and would have made more as a clerk full time at Quik Trip. Crappy pay and working 60 hours per week as a salaried employee is not what candidates are looking for, especially when you have a college education or beyond.

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.

Add another NO REPLY for a job posting. 24 years in Human Resources and meeting all of the requested experience and skills. I thought I would at least get an "over qualified" note. Gee I wonder how many applicants that received NO REPLY were over 40 and of a protected status??

First, (name removed)is not, never was, a COLA company exec. He came from GE's Power Systems division. Now, I'll grant you that running an industrial/manufacturing business might not be a great fit for a DIY chain, but (name removed) brings years of experience in process management and moving production to digital environment. If you'd be in a THD store 10 years ago, you'd know why this was something that (names removed) wanted in the person who took over - the stores had awful inventory management problems.

By the way ... lots of positions being filled in the HQ - or as we call it, the Store Support Center. I think you might be getting no calls simply because of relocation costs. Few people seem to be coming from other parts of the country, simply because there is a great supply of corporate personnel in metro Atlanta. Layoffs from Coke, GE, BellSouth, and other companies make this a competitive hiring market - the company doesn't really need to pay relo.

Face it, all. Corporate America cookie-cutters everything with the sole purpose of non-thinking cheap-as-possible labor. I mean, most require an 'exam' to assess risk and control factors of the new employee. "thinkers NOT wanted' should be evry ap!! Even local management isnt allowed to evaluate individual situations .. it MUST FIT the approved corporate profile.

I will confirm that Home Depot never responds to applications for employment, either for white collar positions or blue collar ones. I am a highly experienced paralegal, and have responded to their ads for legal support staff here in Florida, never to hear from them again. I also did the computer application for a store position, after having been told while shopping there one day that they needed and were hiring people, again never to hear back from Home Depot. I tried repeatedly to reach the store's personnel person, "Marcia", who never bothered to respond to me in any way (and also apparently was never actually in the store, either,) and even the store's manager just shrugged when I asked him why I had not gotten a response to doing the computer application.

Home Depot is a strange bird.

I have a background in cabinet design + design school. I worked a a new store as a kitchen designer. I was given no training on the computer design program, or how to even order cabinets. I was told I would learn this on the job. How? from whom? I was teamed with a young "designer" from another store, who had been forklift operator only months earlier. The only help available was by calling other stores. These stores kitchen designer were so busy they would not even pick up the phone. I am an excellent designer but HD failed to provide me with the tools I needed.

The apron states "I help in all departments". This meant I helped in plumbing, floor and wall, appliances etc. in addition to Kitchens. To top it off...we were constantly being watched. I was given the "dusty finger" test at least twice a week. The "kid" never once dusted or cleaned. In addition to all I had to cover on the store floor I had to clean and dust too.

The kid quit, leaving me by myself. I lasted 6 months. Almost 2 years later that department is staffed by a young gal who had been in appliances and a guy from floor and wall. These people are "designers" without one single class in design, experience or training. Don't even consider having HD (Lowe's is the same) design a kitchen.

Most the managers of stores im my area that had been with HD from when Arthur and Bernie ran the co. are no longer with HD. These are people that had "orange blood" in their veins. The store do look neater and cleaner but the corp. treatment of employees leaves much to be desired. Funny thing, although I believe HD treats emplopyees like dirt I would go back to them. I need health ins. and a steady job which I don't have as an independant designer for the cabinet co I went back to work for after leaving HD. I could also be able to relocate and still work for HD.

don't waste your time with HD, they are very difficult to work for. The local manager has no idea what's going on and the HR manager is the worst ever. There are jobs in boxes that really do appreciate their employees and are fun to work at. Going to work for the orange is not a good idea...

Check ou tthe Tyco Healthcare Blogs and you will see the same dissatisfaction with long-standing Mallinckrodt employees!

I'm not really sure where the problem is with HD. I've always heard that it was difficult to get a job with them. I sent in a resume for a Sr position in their IT group. I got the interview. Then got a call back to take their elementary pre-employment test and what do you know...I've heard NOTHING else from them. The whole thing was just a waste of time for me.

I would highly reccommend that nobody apply with Home Depot and not buy anything from their stores, consumers need to know about the hiring process, it is not right and should not be allowed to be posted

I worked for HD and for HD Supply in an HR leadership capacity. It was a great opportunity but the culture is truely survival of the fittest. You work hard but the harder you work the harder you have to work. If you have a family it's a challange to balance because that means nothing. The compensation is competitive but I will share with you what several Head Hunters have shared with me when I was recruited by another fortune 500 company. They said, there are certain companies that are feeders and others that are receivers. HD is s feeder, "Churn em and burn em". Positions tend to be posted and reposted not because of growth but because of that culture. You will get great exposure to a wealth of information from an HR point of view but what are you willing to sacrifice? That is the real choice.

I enjoy shopping at home depot and I am considering working at my local store. I was told by an employee to fill out the online application and then call the HR department 2 days later if you actually want a job. I have 15yrs of home building experience and was looking for more of a corporate stepping stone career with stability and future options.
I was hoping to find out more hard numbers as far as wages and salaries.
I would make sure you do the 2 day follow-up call.
Good luck to all

Here are some tips for employment at store level.
Go into your local store and find out when the busy months are.(They will not employ anyone during the slow months) Ask for the name of the HR Manager. Apply for a position before or during the busy months and follow up with mailing a written resume to the HR Manager. Keep it neat, simple but positive and include a picture if you like. Timing is everything as they get a huge number of online requests and your written resume will be the only thing to make you stand out.
Do not expect to walk into the store and get an interview with the HR Manager. Home Depot is still a good place to work and the do prefer to promote from within. Good Luck

The average starting pay for hourly positions is barely above minimum wage. Now the management positions pay more but it is salary and when you consider how many hours you are working(55 to 60 a week)it would probably be less per hour then the hourly jobs because you are not getting paid time and a half for overtime.

As far as what I liked best about working at Home Depot. The only thing I can think of is clocking out and going home. A better question would be, what do you hate the most working at Home Depot. That list could go on forever.

What do you like best about working at Home Depot? Are there any great perks or special treats for employees?

I worked for Home Depot in Idaho for about 4 months. I was classified as a Part-Time employee and I qualified for part-time benefits (50%). My normal hours were varied, always on Saturday though. I averaged about 40 hours per week for the 4 months. I asked about the benefits and wondered why I passed my probationary period, worked 40 hours per week and I was still classified as a part-time employee. I was told by an assistant manager "that's just the way it works at HD".

My starting wage was $8.50 per hour and my ending wage was the same. I did not get any other "perks" or discounts. Once a year, around Christmas, we were given 5 - 10% off coupons to use ourselves (1) and pass the rest on to family and friends.

Unless you enjoy dissatisfied customers, rude comments, long hours, low pay and 50% benefits for 100% work performed, I would pass on the HD. The only way I got a job was because I knew a friend who knew someone else in the HR department.

The most outrageous thing about HD is that they had a record year last year and the outgoing CEO got over $210 Million dollars in cash and stock options! Way to go HD! Screw the little people who work hard to make HD what it is today. Although I don't like their hiring practices, I still shop and prefer the HD over other home improvement warehouses.

If you have ever applied for a job before you would know that you usually have to call them after you apply. Secondly Home Depot is a retailer like wal-mart is and Home Depot is the best paying retailer in the world. Look it up. Do you expect to get paid 40,000 a year at a retail store if your not in management.

Well, I guess I was one of the "fortunate few" who heard back from them. I was asking $65K at the time and they called me. I went through a lengthy telephone pre-screen interview and in the course of thing found out that Home Depot has all of their HR processes documented. In other words, they don't need anyone with any real HR skills - anyone who can read can work the job, pretty much. Not a job for me. I built up my skills and experience to USE them. Another bad aspect is the hours - they're not M-F, 9 to 5. The days and hours will vary.

The fact that they constantly advertise says a lot about them - they obviously go through folks a lot, and one has to wonder why. Obviously, if you're looking for a stable postion, this won't be it.

I was looking on the web for some HD info and found this. After reading most of the postings I felt I should post our experience with HD.

I guess we are very lucky. My husband has worked for them for about 6 mos (at management level) and is very happy. They called him back right away for his interview process which was lengthy but usually is at his level. The pay was also not what people are describing. It was definately better than his previous employer, who was horrible in comparison all the way around.

This is retail of course you are going to work long hours and weekends. Most poeple I have met in management over the past 15 years do work a lot of hours, are always "on call" and always have cell phones on.

I for one am very happy with this company from their interview process to pay to benefits..... I am sorry so many people only have negative things to say about Home Depot.

I applied at Home Depot with little appliance experience, but a great deal of sales experience. They called me. I was interviewed and hired. My starting pay was $12 per hour. It was raised to $12.50 per hour after 3 months. Then, I was given a raise to $13.50 per hour. That's not too bad for retail. However, after 8 months I jumped ship to Lowes. Same department, my pay almost doubled.

I had over 10 years with Home Depot and am an expert in my field. My cust. sats were always high and my product knowledge was second to none. (There is always room to learn.) A memo was inadvertently left on our specialist desk from a district manager telling his managers to fire all high paid specialist that aren't making sales plan and replace them with cheaper help. Now our comps showed a 50% decline across the boards in the respective speciality depts. How can you meet a goal when there isn't any traffic? I was fired for "customer abuse". I just recently won my hearing against Home Depot for this. It seems the "customer" wouldn't come forward. I should say that I had 20 customers from the over 10 years that I spent there offer to come forward. I was on Team Depot and recognized for being on the team that won the National award and mentioned on the VOC for my cust. service. It ain't your attitude because I LOVED what I did. It is all about the numbers and it sure as hell isn't Bernie and Aurthur's Home Depot where as long as you took care of the customer you always had a job.

I worked for Home Depot for over 3.5 years and you don't get any discounts when you work there. You get a 20% off coupon for your "Christmas Bonus" and it actually expires. The managers are very "clicky" and if you are not in the click, you might want to keep an eye on your job. Salary depends on exp. of course but a basic person in the South Atlantic region starts around $9-10/hr for full time. Less for part time. Great benefits but the work environment is not healthy to your stress level.

Actually, senior management at Home Depot DOES read these forums. We continuously strive to stay in touch with customer feedback, both positive and negative, and make every effort to address the concerns we find online.

However, if you have experienced problems with Home Depot or a company within the Home Depot family, either online or at a store, I strongly suggest that you direct your feedback to the appropriate person(s). It is difficult to address outstanding issues when you vent to other consumers. If your claim is legitimate, bring it to the source, and be willing to stand behind your convictions. Online libel accomplishes nothing.

I am a hard working individual, don't mind my work at the Home Depot either. I've been there five years now and have grown to dislike the company. How do they expect one to feel good about their job and work hard when they won't even give a raise good enough to cover the increase in health insurance. Looks like I'll be making less and less each year. I believe I've had enough, all Depot'd out. I think I'll find a real job now, one that believes in rewarding hard work, and not with a 3% increase of already crappy pay and an occasional "great job". I've heard people talk about how good Depot used to be, thats it, "used to be". If you want poverty pay, by all means, apply at Depot. My advice would be to get an education, and get a real job.
