Starting out as a lot tech and garden associate in Jacksonville, Florida, Darren Hammerstad had no idea that the part-time job he began as a teenager would lead to a career with The Home Depot. Fourteen years and five stores later, Darren is an assistant store manager. He’s worked his way across various roles, from hardware to loss prevention, all while serving as a reservist in the U.S. Navy.
