Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Walnut, CA – March 24, 2018
it was a slow paced environment that sometimes was fast paced but overall a okay job. i liked it at times but sometimes the hours got cut back a lot so only coordinators gotall the hours so the sales associate . hardest part of the job was when certain managers would tell you one thing and then to do another because the main manager wanted something else done
Layup Technician (Former Employee) – Jefferson, GA – March 24, 2018
I loved working at HomeGoods to be honest. The only reason I left is because I moved to California. It was laid back. They gave you job assignments and left you alone. You could wear anything that was appropriate for every day outings.
paid time off, weekly pay
overtime usually weekly during holidays, point system.
Coordinator (Former Employee) – Frederick, MD – March 22, 2018
The communication is not good, The manager isn't constant in their communication to the staff, huddles haven't happened since before the holiday season. Morale isn't good due to lack of communication and staffing needs to be beefed up, workload is to much for the number of people on staff.
as a sales associate i was required to put back returns, cashier and recover the sales floor all in a 5 hour shift, at the same time. I believe this was because of lack of payroll, therefore the store was not properly staffed. I was making 7.25$ a hour and had to do the job of three people at once. When I first started in 2012 there was an awesome team of managers, but this company loves to relocate managers, which brought the moral down a lot. I have worked under too many managers who made a disgusting amounts of money and barely did any work at all while the sales associates worked hard for minimum wages.
I would start my day off by cleaning the bathroom and putting together furniture. I enjoy fixing items that nobody else could fix or put together. Management was alright but at times there hands were tied. The work place area was interesting which I kept clean at all times due to OSHA rules. Coming to work in the morning and could not find the proper tools to due the work, in all I finally brought my own tools and key to do my job. The enjoyable part for me was that the customer and worker enjoy the cleanness of the bathroom and the store.
People enjoying the cleanness of the store and the facility.
Sales associate and Cashier (Former Employee) – Lomita, CA – March 21, 2018
At the beginning I loved working at Homegoods because everyone was so nice and helpful. And It got really easy all I was doing was ringing up items for pay, and wrapping breakable items. But then one day I just started to hate working there. I didn't like the fact that I was doing nothing but being a cashier and I wanted more out of the job.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Old Saybrook, CT – March 20, 2018
Everyone was rude. I got sexually harassed by one of the managers when I first worked there at age 17. I told my mom and friend and he eventually got fired. Manager was rude. People started quitting after a while.
Backroom Coordinator (Former Employee) – Wauwatosa, WI – March 19, 2018
At this job everything was based on teamwork to get the job done and there was none. No support like that from management team. New hires were not getting trained properly to complete tasks so they would make the people who did know do it all the time. They lie and say flexible hours, on call all the time and its not an on call job. they always promise you things to get you to do extra stuff and don't deliver on their end.
I wish i was able to continue to work here. I got along great with my coworkers. The customers were nice, the work wasn't always easy but it was always fun. The pay was great, breaks were great, you feel every appreciated
A easy job, quick to get the hang of, employees are amazing and extremely helpful. work environment is great, always happy to help each other. Management is a great team always willing to give a hand when needed.
Excellent workplace focusing on training/mentoring next level talent.
