Taking action and listening to the employees that actually work the store. freight and overnight teams have great insight of the store after hours. we see the problems and only have a voice but no action is ever taken. the response is always the same, we will see what can be done. so now the workers that point issues out that are forgotten or ignored lose the interest in even trying to help store see what they don't see. So talk badly or in frustration to other workers. we can reduce pointing the finger at people and work together to do the job home depot pays us to do. I care about my store and fellow workers but managers need to not just listen but also fix and resolve the concerns on bettering home depot.
How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at The Home Depot? What are the steps along the way?
I got hired in 2017. The hiring process was very quick. I had my first interview On Monday May 29th and was offered a second interview immediately. Second interview was that Wednesday and the second interview me getting an offer and being hired. I had to wait the normal week for the background check and drug test and from there I came in on June 9th and was given my schedule. I trained in the back doing videos for a week from 12pm-4pm and I was put on the floor for the first time June 19th.
Understaffing in departments, stressful workload (for the position I am currently in), and no work ethic and sympathy from my managers and key carriers. Don’t know why I work there at this point but I need money during this time.
I had never done telephone customer service always in public buy when I did get the job at Home Depot I was excited. Prior to that I really had a hard time. I want to work on time everyday.. Made #1 in my unit for 8months straight.. All of a sudden I was getting picked on for stupid reasons.. I got tired of this and I resigned
I got hired during covid 19 very fast . I did my application,2-3 weeks later got a cal. Next day interview. Hired same day . That’s pretty fast and they are really nice . Can’t wait to update y’all
Immediately after my 1st interview (on a Tuesday), he referred me for a second interview. Though he said it'll be a week before I hear back, I was called the very next day and was offered the 2nd interview on Saturday that same week.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make The Home Depot a better place to work?
If I was in charge, I would immediately sit down with all department managers and instruct them to write down every reoccurring problem in their department and suggestions on what they would do to fix it. I would personally spend 1week in each department listing to the employees on any insight that they have that may benefit home depot. I would definitely listen to the eyes and mind of a new person with good work ethics trying to help make a change with fresh vision. I would also be hands on with my team. I would never expect anyone to do anything that I would not be willing to do myself. through my experienced workers and new workers I would evolve the meaning of true orange. with workers that seem to be slacking or not doing very well. I would not give up on them, but find the suitable position that they can strive in. Not everyone can strive in 1 particular situation. If they are doing bad in paint, maybe they will flourish in flooring.
