The starting wage for a Home Depot employee is based on the job position, but will not be lower than minimum wage. The amount is also based on the store itself, as one store may offer a higher rate but another store in a different state may offer less.
The starting wage for a Home Depot employee will also be based on prior experience and if the employee is full-time or part-time. According to GlassDoor.com, the average starting wage for a Home Depot cashier was $9.68 for 2014. For the same year, the website also reports that a sales associate averages over $11.50 an hour and department supervisors average over $16.00 an hour.
