Sales Associate in Garden Department (Current Employee) –  Davie, FL 33331March 21, 2019
Wasn’t the worst time but it wasn’t the best. The customers suck but the work is not hard. People really make you feel like a part of a family. Not too bad.

A fun place to work, fellow employees always made it wroth while
Garden Associate (Former Employee) –  Mechanicsville, VAMarch 21, 2019
A typical day at work would include constant customer service and help around the store, if I wasn't doing that I would be restocking shelves or cleaning up around my department. I learned how to drive and use machine equipment such as the forklift. The culture of the workplace was always in a good way. The hardest part of the job would be trying to locate a specific important item if it could not be found, especially if it was curtail to find it to advance to the next task. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my fellow employees as well as the customers.
Pros
Breaks and Flexible hours
Cons
Micro-Management

Pros
good pay, hour lunches, fair treatment...management is good

Department Manager, PIC (Key Holder) (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 21, 2019
Home Depot was a good company to work for. The training provided to associates was some of the best and most thorough I have received from any employer. The managers I worked with were very professional and led with a purpose.

Really great place to work.
Home Depot Associate (Former Employee) –  Cedar City, UTMarch 21, 2019
Home depot was the best job I had and the best part was the people you work with and the recognition you get. The only bad thing is the pay since some associates are trained for lift equipment and the y don't get paid more for operating heavy machinery.
Pros
Fellow associates
Cons
Short time frames

Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) –  New Albany, INMarch 21, 2019
Fast paced, customer service oriented, can be stressful during peak seasons. Have to be flexible in work hours since you are in retail. Store Manager team is very ridged and sometimes unapproachable
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
If the store manager doesn’t like you, they will find a way to get rid of you

Field Staffing Manager (Midsouth Region) Moving (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMarch 21, 2019
Great company to work with depending on your career level and need for advancement. You must network within the company to grow and the opportunity to do so is wide open. You have to understand the business well and build a footprint for yourself and not wait for someone else to do it for you. Its a very large company with lots of opportunity.

Fair enough place to work.
Freight Team Associate (Former Employee) –  Hayward, CAMarch 21, 2019
Fine place to work for those that take care of business. Can't say much for management staff for day shift as I worked overnight but management for overnight shift was pretty solid. Overnight crew was consistently recognized and rewarded by management for good work performance. Most often the lack of day crew completing task overlapped and make the work for night crew a little harder. Day crew had a very bad habit of using lift equipment and not putting on charge for night use so night crew would lose valuable time charging up equipment.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
day crew didn't seem to be held to the same standard as night crew

Not enough help or training and often understaffed.
Cashier (Current Employee) –  United StatesMarch 20, 2019
HR never called in enough people. As a cashier, there usually is only one other cashier to help carry the load of customers, even worse during rush hours. Head Cashiers were rarely there to help, often walking away to talk to other associates. Expected to fulfill multiple roles throughout the store while juggling customers. Would not recommend if you're bad at multitasking and/or not a big people's person. Training is watching videos and getting to push buttons on the register for one day. Often no one there to relieve you so don't expect consistency with your schedule as for lunches and breaks or leaving on time.
Cons
Inconsistent scheduling, understaffed, very little training and help.

The best retail store out there
Part-Time Store Associate (Current Employee) –  Clifton, NJMarch 20, 2019
Once you put the orange apron on its about serving others to the best of you can. A typical day consist of assisting in your department or in other departments if needed.

You learn about home projects through courses that are offer to associates. Management is great and supportive. Hardest part is to practice patience with customers. Enjoyable part would be seeing our customers complete projects they thought they couldn't do.
Pros
Great co workers and Managers
Cons
none
