When you walk into a Home Depot store, have you wondered what was involved in the planning of a display, or the length of time it took to complete it? When you ask one of our knowledgeable store associates where you can find products for your home improvement project, were you able to find them all in the same area? All of this is possible largely because of our experienced team of merchandisers.

Defining MET

What is MET? MET stands for the Merchandising Execution Team. We are a team of merchandising associates whose goal is to improve the shopping experience of our customers. How do we do that? We are able to provide a good shopping experience by taking care of everything that happens behind the scenes. In partnership with our store associates, we are able to make that happen!

Our teams do everything from keeping the shelves fully stocked with the best products and ensuring each bay meets our quality standards. Our MET teams are also given challenging projects such as the planning and execution of resets. It doesn’t matter which store you are working in, there’s always something for you to do!

Is MET the Right Place for You?

If you are a hands-on person who thrives in a fast-paced environment, MET is the place for you. Our teams are given the independence and freedom to use their problem-solving skills to get the project done. MET is a place where you can see results. Our teams have the opportunity to work on a project and see it through from start to finish. It’s not very common to see the impact of a days’ hard work. This is more than just a job. We are a team who likes to get the job done.

If this is something that interests you, what are you waiting for?

The Perks

Home Depot is not your average retailer. We recognize that in order to be the best, we need to take of our people. It has been embedded in our core values and in everything that we do. To set us apart from our competitors, we offer a wide variety of benefits to not only our full-time associates but to our part-time associates as well. They don’t stop once you reach a certain age either. We continue to offer benefits for as long as you choose to work for us!

Taking care of our people is something that is very important to Home Depot. We recognize not everyone fits the 9-5 hour workday and there’s a shift toward having a flexible work schedule. This is why we offer our teams the flexibility to pick hours that suit them. Whether they are going to school part-time or have family obligations, they have the option to work Monday to Friday 6am-2:30pm or 2pm-11pm or they can work four days a week (Monday to Thursday) from 9pm-7:30am! Who said you had to wait for a stat holiday to enjoy a three-day weekend? All you need to do is join MET!

Room to grow

If you have the drive and passion to grow, we will help you get to where you want to be, all you have to do is ask! We have committed leaders and dedicated HR professionals to support you every step of the way.

We don’t just talk; we walk the talk. Did you know our current president of Home Depot Canada started off as a lumber associate in 1996? Jeff Kinnaird worked his way up to being the Vice President of Merchandising and was promoted to President in 2016. There are many success stories like these at Home Depot, just ask any of our associates!

So what is it that we offer to our associates? We offer tuition reimbursement, training that starts on day one ranging from health and safety, to product knowledge certification. Once you’ve been with us for a period of time, coaching and leadership courses become available to our associates. We invest in you as much as you invest in yourself.
