No work/life balance, but decent people and pay

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Home Depot paid pretty decent during my time there, but in my position there was no way for me to have a set or somewhat consistent schedule, which led to numerous shifts ping-ponging from starting at 5am to 9am, or closing with no real reason. Management was pretty good at my location and seemed to care about the people if you were doing your job right. Not a bad place to work, but not a long term one for me.

Pros

Decent people and pay.

Cons

unpredictable schedule, coverage

Only the strong survive

At least they cancelled the "fun" "Rewards" breakfast that you had to attend, even if you had to get up at 4 AM.No one could want to be a manager there unless they were starving - mandatory to work all night 2 weeks a year.They will never close due to snow, ice or tornado because that's prime sales time.They expect you to look all over the store for items way up in the air: like gas grills could be in the lumber department and hardware items in plumbing. Night crew will put anything anywhere: your scanner says you have it, but where the H___ IS it?

Pros

Most employees are nice

Cons

Customers think we know how to use these tools! No, we just sell them!

Outstanding Work Enviornment (for my specific store at least)

My time at Home Depot was short yet fun, we stayed at task and helped the customer with any problems finding products or help with cutting wood, we restocked our portion of the store and when the job was done, there was some leisure time to get to know each co worker, the actual work can be a bit tedious at times but there’s always something to keep you occupied.

Home depot is a great place to work. Compensations and benefits are great. Full time employees have to choose the work shift that suit their life style. Great Company to work at.

Learned a lot, lots of training available

I enjoyed my job at The Home Depot; however, I found it be rather "political" and cliquish. They did allow me to stay in Hardware, which I am passionate about. As my first management position, I could have used more training.

Pros

Good products, good reputation

Cons

Need more management triaining

Family Like

Everyone looked out for each other and its truly like a family. The job was simple, but you have to know your stuff because everyone treats you like a walking google. You aren't asked which mower you have in stock is better, you are asked how to mow this customers specific lawn that you have never seen.

Pros

good pay, friendly environment, easy work

Cons

dumb customers, one terrible boss

Good place to work for

This is an awesome place to work for while you are going through college. If you want to advance you will probably get sucked in and regret it as others have.

Fun to work with coworkers but customers can be brutal

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

Pros

good pay

Cons

bad schedules, customers can be mean

Efficient workplace where you are working on your own unloading merchandise from a pallet in designated aisles.

Working at Home Depot was a positive work experience for myself. It was hard work that was rewarding. Typically the freight team would start the shift by unloading pallets full of merchandise off of the delivery truck, then designate the merchandise based on the aisles each item goes into. Then we would split up into aisles unloading the merchandise.

Friendly Team Members

The Home Depot is an easy work location. The work is not overly complicated and the staff is also easy to get along with. The job does require a lot of standing and walking. Benefits are available and the company has a support system to aid employees if they should experience severe life challenges. Overall, I would definitely recommend The Home Depot to others, good company.

Business School

It was a well run school. It gave older students the ability to go back to school for courses they needed to be successful. Outstanding learning environment.
