The HomeDepot, Inc. is the largest home improvement retailer in the United States, supplying tools, construction products, and services. The company is headquartered at the Atlanta Store Support Center in unincorporated Cobb County, Georgia (with an Atlanta mailing address).
It operates many big-box format stores across the United States and its territories of Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, all 10 provinces of Canada and the 31 states and Federal District of Mexico. Maintainer Repair and Operation (MRO) company Interline Brands (now The Home Depot Pro) is also owned by The Home Depot, with 70 distribution centers across the United States.
HomeDepot Brief History
The Home Depot was co-founded by Bernard Marcus, Arthur Blank, Ron Brill, and Pat Farrah in 1978. The Home Depot’s proposition was to build home-improvement superstores, larger than any of their competitors’ facilities. Investment banker Ken Langone helped Marcus and Blank to secure the necessary capital.
In 1979, the first two stores, built in spaces leased from J. C. Penney that were originally Treasure Island “hypermarket” (discount department and grocery) stores, opened in metro Atlanta (in Doraville and on Memorial Drive in Decatur, both near I-285) on June 21. On September 22, 1981, The Home Depot went public on the NASDAQ and raised $4.093 million. The Home Depot joined the New York Stock Exchange on April 19, 1984.
What are the Benefits for Home Depot Employees?
The benefits vary, depending on how many hours you work, and where you are on the corporate ladder. so the only benefit I got was the joy of working in a giant toystore (for grown-ups who like DIY stuff and tools). There was a website I got access to where I could link into and use employee discounts for various things outside of Home Depot, but I never used it.
For people who work full time, you do have access to a lot of the normal benefits. Health, 401k, etc. However, the first time I worked for Home Depot, I was full time for a short period, so I got access to the health, dental and vision.
But to be honest, they barely covered anything and were not cheaper than if I got coverage on my own.
After comparing what I could get on my own, it was a big difference in coverage, and ended up paying out of pocket for my own plan and rejecting HD’s plan. This was a few years ago, so I don’t know if they changed anything, though.

HomeDepot Commonly Asked Question and Answers
Does an Hourly Associate Need a Resume?
Yes, absolutely yes. Recruiters will not understand your work history and past experiences without your resume. You are competing with externals that most likely will have one.
This is also your first impression, to sell yourself appropriately. Recruiters want to understand your accomplishments and will be unable to do so unless you provide your details via your Resume attached to your application.
Does it Look Bad if I if one Applying for Multiple Positions?
No and Yes! Don’t be confused.
Applicant should ensure having conversations about the next steps with your manager. For instance, an applicant should not apply for every store manager position in His or her region that opens.
Instead, work with your manager to find out if you are the right fit and if you would even be considered for a store manager role.
If you have the experience needed for all the positions you are applying for, then make sure you customize your resume to fit the applicable roles.
Most importantly, an applicant must make sure He / She meet the requirements for the job before applying and have the experience to apply to that level/role.
Be realistic about what you are actually applying for, do you have that experience or does the role just sound good?
You need to ask yourself this first question before application: Do I fit that role at least 80%? If so, then you can apply.
Does it Look Bad if I apply for the same job more than one time?
Yes, you are not allowed to apply for one position more than one time. CareerDepot only allows an applicant to apply for a specific position one time, else you will be disqualified.
