About the Company
The Home Depot is built on self-reliance. Founders Bernie Marcus and Arthur Bank left their old posts at an aging home improvement shop and realized the vision of a home improvement store that not only provided parts and tools, but knowledge and expertise, a helping hand that could not only sell a product, but teach a skill.

- “The culture at The Home Depot has been great. Everyone that I have talked to loves the company and how they treat their employees. I reached out to multiple people, and they were all so welcoming and willing to meet with me to talk about their experience. The people are great and they are super understanding, so I think that makes the work/life balance so much better because people are willing to help each other out.”
- “Everyone is very accommodating and understand that life happens outside of work. Also, there were very strict limits on work hours, which made sure that everyone got the same experience.”
- “Full time internship with lots of communication between interns and the company. We're assigned projects that feel important to the company as a whole, with a good blend of guidance and freedom.”
- “The Home Depot has been very thorough in welcoming us and introducing us to their values. The company believes in investing in their people [which] has been evident in my experience. My mentor and manager enable me to learn and grow by providing access and opportunities for exposure to various technologies.”
Why Intern Here
The pandemic shifted our summer plans, but it also gave us a chance to show our interns how we solve problems, think creatively, and adapt to unexpected situations. From the comfort of their screens, our interns met company leaders, collaborated with each other on major projects, and even had game days to get to know each other.
Our interns own projects from start to finish. As the 12 weeks fly by, they apply what they know, pick up new skills, and collaborate with people across the company to make their projects come to life. It’s a great way to meet our leaders and learn valuable leadership lessons from some of the best in the business.
The 2023 Internship is May 15, 2023 through July 28, 2023.

Getting Hired Here
- “I had an interview with other interns so they could monitor our teamworking skills, as well as assess our knowledge, which I found interesting”
- “Interviewers were very knowledgeable, professional and personable. Interviewers paid attention to interns needs and desires.”

- “The interviews were extensive and quite fair, giving candidates a chance to show their problem-solving and teamwork skills as well as describe their experiences.”
