Cool place
South Ozone Park Queens Ny- Retail/Stock Associate (Former Employee) –  Queens, NYDecember 12, 2017
Fun job. You get two breaks, A 15 and 30 minutes. It’s not a hard job. The rush can be a little over whelming at times but after a while you become used to it so it becomes fun

not a good place to work
Garden Associate (Former Employee) –  Tehachapi, CADecember 12, 2017
A serious amount of favoritism and butt kissing goes on in this company. Thats the easiest way to get promoted. Hard work? Forget about it. All the guys who run the show are pushed back and just congratulated behind closed doors but managers take all the credit.

Frieght Associate (Current Employee) –  Grants Pass, ORDecember 12, 2017
It's a good place to work but they like to cut hours. You'll want to find another job because it's hard to fill time here. Co-workers are friendly and helpful.

Cashier (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CADecember 11, 2017
It was a mixed experience here. Good and bad bosses can make or break the job. Friendly coworkers help too. If you come with a positive attitude and the people are friendly, this might be the job for you.

Management was dispersed among a few different people which made the typical day at work different and it was nice to work under different people.

Made the best of it
Tool Technician/ Tool Rental Associate (Former Employee) –  Upper Marlboro, MDDecember 11, 2017
Despite the less than acceptable work environment, I made the best of it. Not given any training on small engine repair/maintenance, I set about to teaching myself. Thru trial and error and book knowledge. Same applies to the electronic tools etc . Became so proficient at repairs that management sent me to other tool rentals in the district to repair their down tools and teach their tool tech how to fix them on their own.
Pros
Learned a lot about a large variety of tools/engines etc.
Cons
Too many to list.

this is an okay place to work. My co-workers were fun and polite/

Home Depot
Freight Worker (Former Employee) –  Mattoon, ILDecember 11, 2017
I worked on the freight team here and had a wonderful supervisor. The expectations were always clear and the management was never unfair about issues that occurred. The one issue I had working here was with other members of the freight team not pulling their weight. In this particular department no one could leave until all of the work was done and the store was back in working order. Unfortunately there were many times where other members of the team would not do their share causing the rest of us to pick up the slack

Fun place to work
Department Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Lufkin, TXDecember 11, 2017
Fun place to work with management that was always accessible. There were sometimes were your hands were tied in what you could do for your customer should an issue arise. With creative thinking you should be able to navigate and take care of the customer. There were always days that the store manager would come in and cook for the associates as a show of appreciation and also he was very friendly and open to listening to whatever you had to say. Can not say that about all the managers but the main manager was great.
Pros
employee parties, success sharing, giveaways throughout the year
Cons
other managers not being able to aide in issues, passing along responsibilities to everyone and not taking responsibility for issues.

Home Depot Cashier (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 11, 2017
At this job I had to really learn how to move fast and become very precise when it comes to counting items and being sure I have scanned every item. Hardest part of work was standing for many hours, which is something I can do, but it was tiring at first. Work place was very friendly and calm, co workers were easy to talk to.
I enjoy making jokes with customers and being around co workers.
Pros
Fun environment
Cons
Long line of customers
