Trying to revamp entire departmentMay 21, 2023 - Customer Service Representative in Valley City, OHRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Provide equipment, able to work remote after training, friendly staff.
No clear expectations set out at the point of hire or directly out of training. Immediately put in tonthe sales queue, even though we didn't have the opportunity to shadow enough agents who did it correctly. The ones we did shadow, did things their own way and had no real authority from any of the management. They have been here long enough, they are allowed to do what they want and not get penalized. Guidelines set put for call offs/requesting time off and denied because the queues are too stacking during busy-season (March-Oct). They do not provide a true sense of the job during training. It's all about learning the systems and then you are thrown in to the queue. Sink or swim. On top of that, they grade each call on a metric system so if you aren't doing what they expect, they let you go for it.Continue reading

Good money Great benefits Easy job Good schedule
Very poor management Safety is the last thing they care about No sales due to poor management therefore a new plant manager is hired every 1-2 years and the company is bought out by someone else at the same time.

Wonderful Option for Early Career DevelopmentApr 29, 2023 - Sr Financial Analyst in Baltimore, MDRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Excellent coworkers. I've been with the company 5 years since I finished undergrad and have made lifelong friends from around the world on each team I've been a part of. This will always vary given how large the company is, but overall the people have been what I love the most about working here. You gain great interactions with a global community.
Some of the roles here require being open to relocate. This wasn't an issue for me since I was young when I started, but it could be a limitation if you desire to be in a specific location.

People are great. The job can be repetitive at times, and with no commission, and very limited bonuses there is no money incentive, other than promotion. Company truck is great.
Lots of time on the road, dealing with difficult customers and leadership on the Home Depot team.
