Merchandising Execution Associate (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – July 19, 2018
This is a company that at least somewhat cares about their employees. There are a lot of programs to help employees out when they are struggling in life.
I was a member of the MET team, which is a merchandiser position. There was a lot of fun work involved, like building displays. There was also a lot of boring, repetitive work involved. At the time that I was employed there, your bays per hour were the only thing considered about your work performance. It encouraged a lot of poor work practices, which then made people that took pride in their work look bad for being slow.
Hopefully they have improved upon their system since my time there.
Team oriented, lots of benefitial programs for employees
low rate of pay, political work culture, inaccurate means of gauging worker competence
Paint Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Soquel, CA – July 19, 2018
I did not enjoy working at the Home Depot. I was really happy when I was finally able to seek better employment else where. The management is over worked and stressed and is encouraged to make decisions solely based on profit rather than on whether or not people are good employees. Consequently the job is very cut-throat with little to no opportunity for advancement, or full time hours with reasonable wages.
A pay check
poor pay, stressful work environment, only part time work
Good company and good place to work, the benefits is OK only
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Aliso Viejo, CA – July 18, 2018
Good company and good place to work, the benefit is OK only. Managements are located in Atlanta where corporate office is. Company should have better benefits such as lower medical insurance for family and more holidays rather than standard 6 holidays, may be 2 more floating holidays.
Flexible schedule - good culture and team environment
Need better benefits such as medical insurance, more holidays
Supervisor/Manager (Former Employee) – Juneau, AK 99801 – July 18, 2018
First job. Was unhappy with short lunch time, but liked to learn new things about the other departments. Most customers are awesome to assist, but there are quite a few of them that won't be happy no matter what.
Can transfer to around the company if moving from one town to another.
Management kept hiring unexperienced employees instead of promoting from below.
Lumber sales associate (Former Employee) – Cedar City, UT – July 18, 2018
Management at the cedar city location did not care about the turnover rate of employees as they would consistently underpay staff and would rather hire inexperienced employees in sales positions than promote from within. Aside from my complaints about management the job itself wasnt too bad. I met a lot of nice people and was able to work with contacters and learn about products, material, and their uses while working here.
Merchandising Execution Associate (Current Employee) – American Fork, UT 84003 – July 18, 2018
The job as a merchandiser at The Home Depot isn't very difficult. What makes this job hard is getting up at 4 AM for a 5 AM shift, and only being compensated 11.00 per hour for it, as well as the awful annual raises (only 30 cents at the most), as well as the placating management culture. Management expresses care, but the actions they could actually do to show it in ways that genuinely matter long term are nowhere to be seen. This job teaches you to be a grunt, and encourages you to be okay and proud of it. If you lack ambition and appreciation for your labor value, this job is for you. Realistically, this job is also good for part-time college students.
Set schedule, relaxed environment (subject to change store by store).
Short breaks and lunches, low labor value, no job advancement, okay with mediocrity.
good job to get back in workplace after being laid off
Cashier (Current Employee) – Greer, SC – July 18, 2018
This was a good place to work for when started but now I just hate to work there. The management does not support the employees. Supervisors and management are not on the same page with instructions on doing job.
Greeter (Former Employee) – Washington Court House, OH – July 18, 2018
I really loved my job. I enjoyed my time there. they have lots of tool on line to help the associates when in time of need. I didn't care for the way people are treated in the small town. they do have their pick of people the like to keep there.
2 15 miniute breaks oppion of 1 hour or 30 minute lunch
Cashier (Current Employee) – Copiague, NY – July 18, 2018
There is poor management. Too many people in charge slack off and leave all the work load on those below them. Employees seem to be held responsible for all issues while supervisors and management gets away with wrong doing.
Department Supervisor (Former Employee) – Omak, WA – July 18, 2018
The hardest job at the HD is a Department Supervisor. You do every thing form an associate to Assistant Store Manager does, plus fit in all Department Manger duties. You may even be a key holder and be the Manager on Duty with no compensation in Pay. There are a lot of good people in the Company but It all depends on your Store Manager. Pay is extremely low for what your responsibilities are and the benefits are very good, but way to expensive. You can get better private medical for half what they pull out your check every two weeks. Also there attendance policy and time clock system is inadequate. Don't ever call in sick or go home sick without personal or vacation time.
Depends what store and who your Store Manager is.
High Medical Premiums, No Discount, High stress and work load. Low pay
Admin Assistant and Merchandising Assistant (Former Employee) – California, Texas, Colorado – July 18, 2018
It was fun and you can learn so much about everything DIY. For 20 years, I did just about every position in the multiple stores that I opened. It feels good when you keep getting promoted and rise up through the ranks. It was mostly a great 20 years.
