At Home Depot, our powerhouse Outside Sales and Service organizations – Home Services and Pro – come together to create a one-stop shop for our Do-It-For-Me and Pro customers. With more than 2 million in-home visits a year and a world-class network of local, badged providers, Home Services is the end-to-end solution for home installations – with more than 35 national programs. Accounting for approximately 40% of total company sales, our Pro department creates benefits and services designed specifically to enhance the customer service experience of our Professional and contractor customers.
Our goal is to continue to provide a best-in-class experience to our customers. To do so, we need more innovators, pacesetters, and solutions-oriented associates that are passionate about changing the face of retail services and are ready to think strategically about how we do business.
