Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee)

2.12.2022, Job Location: Blaine, MN
Home Depot has a great employee first culture. That doesn't apply to the managers. They are customer punching bags, they are asked to work 50 plus hours per week ( doesn't equal work life balance ). you can be a top performer and still not get promoted because your time with the company doesn't equal what upper leadership believes is enough time to be promoted. Managers do it all cashier, help customers, stock, manage deliveries, and deal with customer complaints.

Kitchen and Bath Designer (Former Employee)

Home Depot is the really bad company to work. Don't recommend at all.
Management is a big problem. Employee works hard but paid less and eventhough how hard they work management pushing them to sell. If they can not they fire or make your work environment miserable.

Plumbing Department Associate (Former Employee)

15.11.2022, Job Location: Lindon, UT
In the almost five years I was there, I saw hundreds of coworkers come and go. With a big company like this, you really are just a number, and you can be replaced in a day. However, the relationships you can make with both coworkers and customers is fun, and the things you can learn from every department can help you DIY or move into trade careers with real skills in things like Electrical, Plumbing, Building, etc. The lowest salary is being in Lot or as a Cashier, and becoming a Department Supervisor doesn't pay that much more (aka, the middle management is very put upon with not as compensatory a wage to justify the workload, and it's hard to get from there to upper management). You are fully expected to be an expert in AT LEAST your own department, and it's encouraged for you to cross train (again, without compensation), but it's fast paced, a lot is required of you, and they do offer company celebrations on holidays (though you will work every holiday and on weekends, because it is retail, after all!).

Special Services Supervisor (Former Employee)

14.11.2022, Job Location: Gig Harbor, WA
High turnover, lack of training, and lack of spare time make this job a headache of responsibilities concentrated on the few experienced and competent workers - so much to be done, and a decent amount of willing workers, but so many areas that receive no formal training and never the spare resources to train newer associates on these, so they are left to a few people or simply not done at all.

However, in my case at least, I was granted near-full autonomy in how I chose to spend my time, since there was always so much to do. Picking lumber orders, gathering returns at the SD, key-receiving customer orders, making phone calls, re-arranging staging locations, going through reports in the training room - for tasks of equal urgency, I could pick and choose what I wanted to do, which was quite nice.

Compared to the absolute monotony of cashiering, I would still choose this position. Final level of compensation was 21.50 / hour, but with biannual bonus figured in, it was maybe closer to 23. Typically worked 45 hours a week.

ales Associate (Former Employee)

14.11.2022, Job Location: Union
If you want a job where managers actually provide help and feedback this isn't the place. The only good thing about this job is that its fairly flexible with your schedule if you have another job or school commitments.

Managers are either MIA when you need help, or are piling on work for you to do when you're under staffed.

Merchandising Execution Team Member (Former Employee)

13.11.2022, Job Location: Farmingdale, NY
Worst job ever. Incompetent and ignorant supervisors play favorites. Expected to work nonstop for poor salary, 50¢ raises and bonuses of less than $200.

Team member gets away with threatening co-workers. Any normal employer would of fired the worker on the spot. This one received a reward! Training consists of being dumped in front of a desktop computer. No oppty for advancement or career path.

If you like working in an environment where you're constantly monitored, hard work goes unrecognized and people who don't do anything are rewarded, then this is the job for you.

Used to be a good company to work for but now they could careless about the employees. It's all about money, less workers & more work. Longer u r there the more they take advantage of you.

Supervisor (Former Employee)

9.11.2022, Job Location: Irvine, CA
Management seems to rely on a few hardworking associates to do 90% of the work while the rest are treated more like children that need to be constantly monitored.

A typical day would include customer service, down stocking merchandise, returning product to shelves, and any other department specific duties.

Cahier/Sales Associate (Former Employee)

8.11.2022, Job Location: Escondido, CA
What is the best part of working at the company?
Friendly Coworkers, longer meal breaks 1hour meal breaks and 15 minute rest breaks.

What is the most stressful part about working at the company?
Store is always changing, over 1,000s of items and 100s are similar so it is confusing helping customers. Getting ahold of associates in other departments is almost always a challenge. Managers refuse to give full time hours when asked for. Customers are agressive often. Self Checkout machines are broken or down everyday.

What is the work environment and culture like at the company?
Toxic, fast paced, frustrating

What is a typical day like for you at the company?
Cashiers must greet anyone who passes by them. Cashiers must assist customers in self checkout and that can lead to agressive and awkward situations. There are cashiers in Garden, Checkout, Customer Service, and Pro Desk, being knowledgeable in these departments helps a little but it's hard to know everything leaving customers sometimes confused and frustrated on finding things.

Sales Associate/Tool Repair Technician (Current Employee)

7.11.2022, Job Location: Industry, CA
The worst place I’ve ever worked. Treated poorly by management and customers. Every day work hours are different, can close at 10pm and open the next morning at 6am. Pay is low. Staff walks around like the walking dead, no enthusiasm, trying to avoid customers. Don’t bother learning coworkers names, with 80% turnover, you can’t. New faces each day. It’s a hellscape. If you have to… use it and lose it!
