    Building & remodeling homes. The difficulties are with selling their credit card. Compared to the Lowes credit card H Depot's card doesn't offer much value.

  • the .com and app are pulling in the most business, print and in-store are the slowest and also slowest to adapt.

  • Technology implementation and devops (fast) Paired programming is difficult for passionate and skilled developers since a lot of the people there are not up to par and have no aim to be. It ends up being a huge waste of time and talent. Talented people find ways to learn. They don't need handholding. If they get rid of paired programming a lot of talent would flood back in.

    Easy interview process. Didn't get the drug screening requirement, especially for a $11 an hour job.

  • for the .com its is much more informal but there is a set agenda, we want our candidates to be in their best element, in other words be your self and let your skill sets shine. We look at it as much more Agency style rather than corporate environment. "What are suit and ties'?

  • I didn't even have an interview I filled out the application and took the assessment test and the next day I had an email offering me a position and asking me to set up a time for a site visit. I don't know what to expect. Everyone says the phone interview comes first.....I never had a phone interview...just a job offer

    Co workers are nice. Would be an excellent idea to have cashiers submit a review of the head cashier/ front end supervisor. Co workers are diverse which is nice. Fustrating when co workers don't show up, but that would change with better wages !

  • most of them are great, the managers not so much and anyone having issues can get crabby

  • For the last 3 years we have changed the culture here, again its not done it never will be, But what we are trying to build on is a place that is super collaborative, full of energy, fast paced, a good work to life balance, much like the agency world but with out the crazy pitch time lines, within in return has boosted our opportunity to build a stronger team that thinks outside the box.

  • At my store... most of the higher up, behind the scenes mangers think they're better than you.

  • A big busy friendly family

  • People are very busy and sometimes get passionate about what they do, but it's otherwise pretty laid back and people take time out to have a bit of fun. People greet each other in the hallways and it's pretty friendly.

    Depends on the position and the specific team, but when it comes to .com or app related roles, we are asking more Design Thinking, usability driven, agile development driven questions to our candidates, we are pushing the norm when it comes to the typical approach to candidates we have also had candidates show their skill sets on the fly as well as within a scoped out project where the candidate takes it home and comes back to present to the interviewees.

  • We have "flextime" where people are expected to work on core "power-hours" from 10-3 but can take appointments outside that time (and, theoretically, still work an 8 hour day). Sometimes people do work-from-home days but since all work is supposed to be done in pairs, work-from home is usually unproductive.

  • Non existent
