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.


Decent people and pay.


unpredictable schedule, coverage

Long hours, but good part-time benefits like tuition reimbursement

The management often scheduled really long shifts, but not many hours. Customers were hard to work with at times, but management usually looked out for workers. Good part-time benefits for part-time workers

Great co-workers!

The work is OK. Dealing with customers or slinging freight all night can be challenging. However, I've never worked with such a great group people anywhere else.

Management is awful. Witnessed an altercation between and adult and teenager and the management didn’t do a thing about it. Worried entirely about the wrong people.

good company

overall i did enjoy my time at home depot. i want to say that each store is different so even though my store was good. another home depot store could be different because a lot of your experience is how good you and your team can work together.

I enjoyed my time very much at Home Depot. Management was alright but the total atmosphere of the job is very positive and it makes it a fun place to work.

Amazing place to work

Very familiar orientated, it’s hard work but they make it feel worth it. The management was the best I have had and cared for my personal well being.

Only positive thing to say is coworkers

Hire and fire, morale is low, management constantly changing, different answers from everyone on how to do any task. Tenured people canned constantly. Expect to do an abundance of different tasks daily due to poor planning, and get told your performance needs to be better.

Poorly run business.

Grossly understaffed. Worst managed job I've ever worked at. Half the staff shouldn't have jobs; but no surprise considering the pay and the amount of work you're expected to do.

Okay job to be at. Start when I was in high school so not much to review except he boss and team members were good people. Pay wasn’t that great but that was back in 2014 so it’s probably a little better then now

Good people, bad corporate

Very little training and support due to chronic hour allotment from corporate. Store management does seem to care but this is overshadowed by lack of hours available. They keep instituting process changes in an attempt to correct on- hand availability of product without addressing lack of hours, to much of some product is sent to store while not enough of other types of product, no room for advancement. Store is clumsily designed in regards to overstock.


Some free food, good co workers


Corporate is killing its own company.

was ok

I had to deal with customers who didn't understand anything about tools, annoying customers who would interrupt me when I was talking to someone else and management who could care less.

Got to work there before the glory days became completely eclipsed

I was lucky enough to join just before MET lost its luster. Back then you'd be assigned your own personal bays in the store and those were YOURS! Over time you'd become a master of those little bays and could get them looking really nice and clean and still be way ahead of schedule. Then they changed it so we had to service the whole store, so you could never get used to each planogram (since those changed pretty often). It was a constant state of catch up with yourself. Ah well, it was good while it lasted.

Company keeps going downhill

The biggest problem is understaffed. If you are a order picker it's nearly impossible to get your work done because every where you go someone needs help and there is no one covering the departments. The management is run like a pyramid scheme.

Not a fun work place to work.

Training is good but generally not applied by workers or associates due to poor managerial supervision.There's a favoritism in this company.Moving up is hard. Not a fair company to treat hard worker associates.


Every year there is a raise for hourly associates.


Lot of lazy associates.Poor management.
