Warehouse Worker Reviews at The Home Depot in Luckey, OH

Warehouse Worker | Luckey, OH | Jul 29, 2016
Warehouse Associate pays good, but...
General Warehouse Associates have a short work week; it only lasts 3 days, but there's a lot of work to do in a 12-hour shift. Receiving associates start off with a morning meeting, stretch to loosen up your body, then you look at where you're assigned for the day (which part of the building, what dock door, who you'll be working with, etc). After you arrive at your dock door, review what you're supposed to receive off the trailer, scan the dock door with a radio-frequency (RF) device, and enter the amount of products you receive to a licence plate number (LPN). Products are stored on pallets, where they are shuttled away to other parts of the building to be put in storage overhead. If you finish your trailer, you inform your supervisor and they will give you your next assignment. It's very repetitive work, and during a 12-hour shift, it gets very exhausting. The hardest part of the job is all the lifting and bending you'll be doing throughout the day, regardless of whether you are on the docking bay or in a forklift; you will be worn out by the end of your shift. The most enjoyable part of the job is your two breaks and a lunch, which is the only time you'll have off your feet, and clocking out and going home. Overtime is possible, and sometimes mandatory (i.e. during holidays). It's a very friendly atmosphere to work in and the management is easy to get along with.
ProsGood pay for work involved, friendly management, friendly co-workers, positive atmosphere
Cons12-hour work day, only two breaks, concrete floor hard on feet, lots of walking/lifting/bending

Upbeat work place with bad time managment
While working at The Home Depot dfc the mornings were more than slow with barely any work to be done for the first 3 hours, and in contrary the nights would be too hectic to get materials put away safely and generally made the workers rush to finish the 12 hour shift. Management would then discipline people with low productivity numbers even though there wasn't enough work to share. The hardest part would be at the end of the day when the dock rushed the put-away team with product so they could leave on time, though the majority spent the whole day dragging out the work and moving slowly. The easiest part was when we had so little product coming in the building that the company HAD to send people home on VTO or voluntary time off and there was still too little of a work load to be shared among MHE drivers. The most enjoyable times were when we would have our All Hands Meetings and the Human Resource team would make a party out of the hour long process, with free food, games, and prizes. It was an overall great place to work but with the lack of time management and my inability to continue working 12 hour shifts I unfortunately had to leave the company.
ProsFree lunches, safety rewards, paid vacation
Consexpensive healthcare, poor management, disorganized new building

Decent stepping stone
Getting hired in at Home Depot Warehouse I was full of promise and loved the company culture. That certainly changed a couple of months in. You have to remember you’re just a body to them. No matter what sort of culture they preach, that’s what it is. I started out with a great manager who definitely had his favorites but was overall a great guy. Then all of the promotions started happening. I started seeing our hardest workers get turned down for positions they deserved or weee already doing but just not getting paid for. Promotions were more popularity contests than anything. (I should state that I never even tried to get a promotion so this is just an observation). Decent pay for how easy it is but horrible medical insurance that is often not worth what you pay for it. I should also add that you never get 40 hours a week unless it’s peak season. I found the work monotonous and boring as I like to be challenged more. They also are adamant that you do not talk about unionized working. They are strongly against this. I’m sure you can guess why.
ProsPaid breaks, decent pay, friendly coworkers, health insurance, a fund for workers in need
ConsShort hours, benefits are expensive, promotions unlikely, vacation and paid time off is hard to earn
Warehouse Worker | Luckey, OH | Aug 24, 2021
Avoid working here.
Home Depot does not treat their workers right. Many people that have been working there for years, me included (5+ years), are getting paid about the same if not less than some new hires that are just starting. The pay might seem nice but in all actuality it isn’t because we are lucky if we work 36 hours and when you subtract your health insurance and 401k your paychecks sometimes looks pitiful and you may find yourself contemplating picking up an extra job. Communication sucks and they are currently changing everyone’s shift and you may be assigned to nights or weekends when you only want weekday day shift. The morale at this dc hit rock bottom and everyone is trying to find a job elsewhere.
ProsIt offers benefits. PPO with Aetna or HSA whichever you prefer
ConsLong hours and only 3 days. 1 day feels like 2 but your overall work hours can be less than 36
Warehouse Worker | Luckey, OH | Feb 9, 2017
Decent place to work
"Smoke and Mirrors".. this company will make you think you have it good by all the free lunches, prize drawings, ect ect... while the pay is mediocre and the benefits are absolutely terrible. While management is usually very helpful they sit in their climate controlled offices and play on their phones alot of the time, the only good thing about this building is that theres never a shortage of work, your guaranteed 40 hours a week all year long with plenty of overtime available as well. I would recommend Home Depot if you need something to get you by in the meantime, or unless you are pursuing a leadership role. Leaders have it made with the home depot, while associates suffer.
ProsPlenty of work, alot of paid time off, leniant attendance policy
ConsMediocre pay, TERRIBLE benefits. (2 most important things)
Warehouse Worker | Luckey, OH | Aug 9, 2019
HR does not care
Their Value Wheel is garbage. Starting wage is 15 but by 6 months you'll be at 16. The only time you get all your hours is peak season and OT is rare except for some mandatory Saturdays during Winter peak. Do not apply in the summer, there's too much VTO and no work. Management tries to get you to say any injuries that happen on the job aren't their fault. Just. Don't. If you value yourself as a person.

Good place to work with great work culture
Home Depot is a great company to work for they actually care about the employees and they do try to help you out if things aren’t going well for you they have a great work culture
ProsFree lunches through peak, good management, awesome day 1 benefits, work culture is amazing
ConsOnly 36 hrs a week I don’t mind it but some people want 40
Warehouse Worker | Luckey, OH | Feb 26, 2022
Decent place
I worked there for awhile and made some great friends. Learned leadership skills and had the opportunity to advance my career. Management could be frustrating at times, but my experience was overall pleasant!
ProsShort work week, they feed you sometimes, success share
ConsMandatory overtime during peak
Warehouse Worker | Luckey, OH | Jun 19, 2021
Good company to work for.
I enjoyed working there. Coworkers were great and everyone worked really good with each other. You can build easily with the company but not worth it. They do show a lot of favoritism.
ProsYou can build easily with the company.
ConsManagement sucked. And they paid unfairly.
Warehouse Worker | Luckey, OH | Oct 3, 2018
Employee friendly
The company is very employee friendly. often during stressful times they feed employees and play games. some management dissensions are questionable and/or show favoritism. the company is very good, the facility as well, just some common middle management issues.

If you were in charge, what would you do to make The Home Depot a better place to work?
Asked Jun 6, 2017
Pay Front End workers more. Cashiers, Lot, and Head Cashiers all get paid a dollar less then any regular associate in the store despite having the most interaction with customers, doing most physical labor, dealing with most angry customers, and Head Cashiers BEING COMPLETELY RESPONSIBLE FOR GATHERING ALL THE MONEY IN THE AM AND PM, TAKING IT TO THE VAULT, AND LEAVING 30-60 MINUTES LATER THAN ALL OTHER ASSOCIATES, and still making a dollar less.

What advice would you give the CEO of The Home Depot about how to improve it?
Asked Oct 3, 2016
Get back to the basics bring back the store and department meetings with all the new associates and some seasoned associates they need the comradery and team building to bring them truly in to the home depot family most today have no idea of the foundation of how Home Depot came about and what it drives and push and goals are the sooner we start the better now that Covid -19 is on the down a lot that came in during that time and after that time missed the mark the fast track hiring misses this mark causing overturn to happen just as quick, we need to make this connection with our new associates and well as re-connect with our seasoned associates who have been drained throughout the pandemic, I am seeing that associates are still in need of help counseling support or just needing to talk things through although we have the services we need to bring them into the store or reach out to each and every associate by phone at least once it took the pandemic 2/1/2 years so reaching out to our over 200000 + associates can only drive a force to be better and ready to knock out any competition this is my opinion and observation and not that of Home Depot
Answered Oct 9, 2022
Pay attention to your employees! Listen to THEM!! Value them, recognize that without them, your store wouldn't be possible, your profit wouldn't be possible! Pay attention to what's going on in your stores and how management is treating employees!

Why did you leave your job at The Home Depot?
Asked Mar 15, 2017
Management is Calais and only care about their own progression. Salary, bonuses, etc. supervisors are inactive associates. They fill out the paperwork but they’re not required give coverage to their dependents when the department has no associates, therefore, associates from other departments are forced to cover and over work. Associates are expected to either comply no questions asked or be expected to be treated as lower class. Even though raises are given out at a yearly basis, it is divided so all associates, regardless of seniority and responsibility are paid the same. The attendance policy is an excuse to excuse the unfavorable. Work performance and merit is never appreciated.
Answered Mar 5, 2023
Low pay, people who are elevated to supervisor/management positions don’t require good customer service & advertising for their credits cards which we get little from doing.
