    I have been working at Home Depot Canada part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very easy going management, great co-workers, mostly good customers, short commute, quite often management will bring in ice cream, birthday cakes, or bbq burgers. Washrooms are always clean.

    Cons

    poor wages, favoritism, concrete floors, steel toe shoes, open to late at night, merchandising of some product is illogical, non reactive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    follow through on programs, talk to employees more often about how things are going in their departments. Way to much waste.

    Be the change you wish to see.

    Former Employee - Cashier in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I worked at Home Depot Canada part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Worked as a cashier here for 1.5 years, if you have the availability, there are a lot of hours you can work. You get decent raises every year and coworkers were cool.

    Cons

    Hard to get time off sometimes because the schedule would come out so fast. If you're a student and you need a lot of time to study it can be difficult when you're working 16 hours over the weekend+a weekday evening. Customers can be extremely impatient and rude when the store is understaffed. Working at the return desk means you run into a ton of scammers who take advantage of the customer-friendly policies.

    Pros

    It is nice to chat with customers.

    Pay too low taking into account length of training and knowledge of associates.

    Value your employs by giving them higher salaries.

    I have been working at Home Depot Canada full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Core values are in place and practiced to make a safe working/shopping environment. Remember, it really is a commercial warehouse of product that mixes the shopping public into the operation.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work hours get a little tiring, given the coverage for store hours, 7 days week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Possibly to increase the pay bands to reflect the fact that "Home Depot Canada regards their Associates as the most important people within the organization". Then work harder at developing, training and retention of the employees that actually perform.

    I worked at Home Depot Canada part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Worked at Home Depot through college, very supportive of students and accommodating. The "bleed orange" concept makes for a really united workforce and helps to eliminate the sour staff pretty quickly.

    Cons

    Tough to provide the kind of customer experience the Home Depot expects when it is often one staff to a department and they are entitled to breaks as well!
