    I worked at Home Depot Canada part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Customer service and selling techniques

    Cons

    Hours suck if you stay part time

    Advice to Management

    Follow through with your promises and don't treat employees like they're all misinformed. Some of them may have had more experience than you bit in a different line of management

    "Terrible Attendance Policy"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Benefits is about it. HD is just another Wal-Mart.

    Cons

    Anythings in regards to treating people like you would want to be treated.Terrible Attendance Policy. They look at a report every six months, then discipline you.....or fire you. You may have been late a couple times 5 months ago, then they write you up. How can anyone dispute what happened 5 months ago? Shouldn't these issues be addressed with-in a week or two?

    Advice to Management

    Remember how you got here! It was through your people.
    Remember how Lowes caught you! You forgot about your people. Mr. Blake, THD is doing it again!

    "Night shift"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Friendly people, well most the time. The management can play favorites at times and will assign the easiest tasks to those who have seniority.

    Cons

    A lot of overtime, with low pay. If you're new, they will assign you to the hardest tasks.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    This was a part time time job for me so I didn't take it too seriously. The work schedule was pertty fair and if I needed a day off it was usually accomodated. My Manager was pretty easy going and I felt comfortable talking to him about issues I was facing (other employees, work schedule, tasks, etc).

    Having the opportunity to work in different departments and learn new skills and develop knowledge about all the different products was most interesting to me.

    Formal and informal staff events were fun even with such a diverse group of people working at the Home Depot.

    Cons

    Starting a work shift early in the morning was the one thing I liked the least.

    Advice to Management

    I didn't have much exposure to Senior Management so I can't really comment on this. My direct Manager treated me well.

    Pros

    The occasional friendly person whom you're able to make their day by helping them.

    Cons

    Customers are more often than not rude. Steel-toed shoes while behind the front desk make little sense. Very particular dress code, although SR Mgt does not follow. PT pay does not go up with min. wages.

    Advice to Management

    Favoritism will get you nowhere.
