I have worked at 5 Home Depot’s. It varies wildly. One I worked at had great management and we all felt like a team, we were encouraged to work together and help each other do our jobs better and to advance. Everyone was pretty happy. Others were less concerned with building morale and were a drag to work at. One in Arizona I left as I had an hour+ drive one way. They started scheduling me for 2 hours everyday. When I told them it was costing me more money to work there than stay home, they just didn’t care. Refused to change the schedule, so I was forced to quit. The last one I worked at was in Sequim WA, it was terrible! I have a few allergies. One other employee took delight in triggering mine. She wore a gallon of patchouli and had a diffuser at her desk. I told her to please keep her distance from me. She would purposefully go through my line to check out a soda. Come stand behind me, and come sit by me in the break room. It got so I could not use the restroom at work as she would spray patchouli in every stall! She argued with me that I could not be allergic as it ‘was all natural!’ So are bees and shellfish , but I am allergic to those too! Finally she purposefully came up and sprayed patchouli on the counter in front of me. I had a major allergic reaction and had to go outside and use my epi pens. When I complained to management I was told that I needed to ‘get used to it!’ I was also told that they cannot ask someone not to wear perfume. I quit. My life was not worth working! The management refused to understand that she was endangering my life and health for her amusement! Never worked at a Home Depot again. If I lived near Redmond WA, I would go back there gladly! If it is still the same environment. ( Btw, there were several reviews online about the Sequim store, that complained of the stench at the pro desk, and how they would not shop at that HD again.) So if you are interested in working at a Home Depot, talk to the employees in a few different departments. Ask them questions about the leadership, how they respond to complaints, concerns and requests. Most Home Depot’s are good, some are Excellent, and a few are real stinkers!

I do like the structure of Home Depot it does have alot to do with management at store but recently they have made changes to try and combat favoritism but it has effected our coverage and standards a bit but we have a good management team and they are holding it together

I worked as repair tech at home Depot it's a good place to work, but watch out for the narcissistic managers,they look for excuse to release you.

There isn’t any teamwork at all. This is a place to work part time and make some extra money. You do as they say. They try to keep a head count of about 100. 25 people quit every week. It is a constant revolving door. You don’t recognize anybody regularly. If you don’t recognize anybody, how could you consider that a team?

It's a good ole boys club. If you're a woman, there isn't a glass ceiling, it's cement.
