Looking for a new career.

Looking for a new career.

PostBy: EarthWindandFire On: Fri Jan 31, 2014 6:51 pm

I have been working at the same employer for ten years. My job is a salesman for a wholesale hardware and plywood company. A week ago I decided to post my resume on Monster and start a profile on LinkedIn. So, I've gotten an email and a phone call from a Home Depot recruiter. The job is for outside / residential sales. I'm just wondering if anyone knows someone who's done it, or has any feedback about working at Home Depot or even Lowes in a sales position.

Thanks!

You might have looked there already.

The HD in my areas wasn't hiring when my wife was looking, but I had heard good things about it as an employer. As with everything retail, depends on the management of the store/division you are in, but generally folks seem pretty happy there.

Good luck.

I've really just found negative opinions which is how I imagine the job to be. My friend worked at Home Depot as a "fixer" manager. He's the guy they call when a store has been run into the ground.
