    Home Depot management at the Pikes Peak store are worse than a pack of wolves.They hunt down the people they don;t like!.Ther have been people that worked there for years "making a career".The manager there now has managed to FIRE most of them just because he didn't like them.If you don't belong in the"inner circle" you won't last long.Another way to survive is by accepting their advances.That store has ruined many lives!.The other comment is right they'll be nice to your fae,then stab you in the back!

    You start with a job and through your effort and dedication you can make a career. With so many people out of work, this comes at a good time. Also, these temporary jobs can lead to permanent jobs. Two family members have advanced from "jobs" to careers with Home Depot. You don't just land in a good paying job. You have to start out and gain experience, education and training and be a good worker for the company. Go for it!

    I love my job at Home Depot and it is a great place to work. Wages are more than fair and you have the opportunity to work in all kinds of departments. You get out of it what you put into it.

    Actually, Brad is right. They pay horrible wages! I was a bookkeeper at one location and made $8.77 per hour AFTER my 1 year raise. So if they only pay that little to the person who is around over $20K in cash all day, they won't pay other people much, unless they have years and YEARS of experience in a particular department. Don't let yourselves be fooled. Home Depot is an awful place to work. They play favorites like nobody's business. If the scheduler, who at one particular location is an evil, evil woman, doesn't love you, you won't get hours. If she loves you, you will get close to 40 hours. If she doesn't like you, although she plays nice to your face, she will give you 8 to 12 hours per week. So yea, Home Depot is an awful, horrible place. :)

    Gee wiz, these jobs only pay enough to live with your parents. You make it sound as if this is some kind of miracle.
