The world’s largest hardware retail store is also one of the best retailers in terms of salary, benefits, and all-around work culture. The starting wage at The Home Depot is $11.33 per hour, a number that has drawn in roughly 400,000 employees to start as sales associates. But what makes them stay? Probably the full health insurance benefits for both full and part-time employees, generous time off benefits including military leave, jury duty and bereavement days, and 401k (with a matching contribution promise) and stock investment plans. Working at The Home Depot also improves many employees’ quality of life. The hardware giant provides adoption assistance, a tax preparation assistance program, a tobacco cessation program, and even tuition reimbursement. Of course, there’s also an employee discount. So, if you love tinkering, fixing, improving, and creating, Home Depot is a great employer to have.
