Our Supply Chain priorities are Customer Service, Reliability, Cost Effectiveness and Culture.

We are constantly creating a talent pool to quickly fill positions as they become available. Home Depot is always searching for innovative managers that can identify ways to decrease cost, increase efficiency and help us pursue our goal of being the #1 customer service retailer in the world.
