Cashier (Current Employee) –  Mansfield, MASeptember 23, 2018
Management needs to communicate better between themselves. There is favoritism. If you aren't a superstar credit card getter you get treated differently. Slow periods where some employees get hours cut while others are getting more. Long periods of time when you're just standing there on a cement floor.
Pros
Holidays they do small free food settings.
Cons
Favoritism, long periods of standing on cement, I now have plantars fasciitis, lower back pain, and knee pain.

Cashier (Current Employee) –  Biloxi, MSSeptember 23, 2018
Home Depot is a great job however it has bad points too because some of the employees are lazy and I end up picking up their slack. I am the Kid's Workshop Captain so I work with the children who come into the store plus I hold the lead for the most Credit Cards obtain in our district so I work very hard to achieve high standards for myself.
Pros
It is a good company over all to work for.
Cons
Some of the cashiers tend to take longer breaks which interferes with every one else's break time

bad place to work for a woman
Garden Center Associate (Former Employee) –  Grand Junction, COSeptember 23, 2018
They expect you to do your job without any disagreement on what they are doing. Sometimes things were pretty bad, especially if you are single. If you get hurt they expect you to work, even if you are in pain

none

Great Management = Great Work Environment
Vault Associate (Current Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MISeptember 23, 2018
If you get a great management team, the job is great. But if you don’t a decent management team then the job is not great. The company values are great and very respectful of their employees

Productive place to work in
Frieght Worker (Former Employee) –  Dartmouth, MASeptember 23, 2018
the management between stores is not always what it should be, and as a result, an associate can loose his/her livelihood. I am saddened that that is all I have to say.
Pros
associates are usually easy to get along with
Cons
management has room for improvement

Busy and clustered place
Front Desk Associate, Customers service (Former Employee) –  Silver Spring, MDSeptember 23, 2018
Customers were rude and always needed a discount based on managers being sweet. Orders were always messed up by quantity or actual product. Delivered weren’t made on time as well as appointments for consultations were. never made. Hours were cut randomly and you’ll be at the desk working 4 hours alone working two different departments.
Pros
Cookout and fundraising’s
Cons
Hours supervisors and managers

It's all about Money doing more with Less trying to be like Amazon
Department Supervisor (Former Employee) –  FloridaSeptember 23, 2018
We never had enough help on the floor everything is about doing more with less. The company is trying to compete with Amazon and trying to drive more business on line and its taking a toll on the associates they are always being yelled at by customers because the orders are not pulled and ready when promised because of lack of help to pull the orders. Management demands more and fails to recognize the associates for their hard work. Taking care of the associates is a thing of the past it's all about hours and doing more with less.
Pros
Eye Med plan
Cons
Not enough help

A large company so they offer pretty good benefits. There is definitely room for growth because they usually hire management from within. Hard work doesn't go unrecognized.

It's Retail
Customer Service Lead (Current Employee) –  Fort Collins, COSeptember 22, 2018
Standard customer service retail experience. The customer's are the worst and management can be difficult sometimes. If you're good at your job and you know what you're doing, it will be a great place to work. The hours are flexible and depending on management, they are almost always able to work with your schedule (within reason).
Pros
Benefits after 30 days
Cons
It's retail and all retail sucks

Great place to work.
ORDER FULLFILLMENT ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  Napa, CASeptember 22, 2018
The Home Depot is a great place to work, part-time or full-time. There are many opportunities for growth in the store. And it is also a great place to meet people. The store is always busy and never dull. The most enjoyable part is helping the customers find what they're looking for and advising them on home improvements. Management is very supportive of their crew. Associates help each other even if they're from other sections. Associates get training for operating lift trucks, which is cool. Overall, it's a fun place in which to work.
Pros
Training for operating lift trucks is provided.
Cons
Moving heavy items like cement or lumber by hand can be very taxing.

Easy going workflow and fun workplace
Merchandising Execution Team Associate (Former Employee) –  Glendora, CASeptember 22, 2018
Typical work day started at 5:00 A.M. and end at 1:30 P.M., during the day one would either service bays in the aisles, do projects, or assist customers with any questions they had. I learned customer service skills, how to meet customer's needs and how to manage time properly to ensure a task is done on time. Management of the store itself was done well, but the supervisor of my team specifically could have better, they took matters very personal and would take it out on those who opposed them. The workplace culture was very good, no one ever truly hated working there, but the hardest part of the job was having to ensure a project or task gets done when it is coming close to the end of the shift and customers stop you to ask you questions, customers come first of course so the task must wait but will still need to be done before you leave. That was overshadowed though by everyone that worked there, everyone got along and always had good attitudes, that was the most enjoyable part of the job.

Fun, low stress enviroment
Freight Team Associate (Current Employee) –  Strongsville, OHSeptember 22, 2018
Overnight freight team is a stress free environment. The most difficult aspect to the job is the moving of big, bulky, and heavy products. Most fellow associates are friendly.
