    I worked at The Home Depot

    Pros

    Absolutely great benefits once you're fulltime. If you love direct interaction with customers, this job is for you. Excellent training programs, regardless of experience, in ALL areas of company interest. Tuition reembursement if your major relates to company needs. Ability to purchase stock at 15% discount as fulltime associate. Never a lax moment - always something to learn, do, discover and relate to. Customer perks and kudos can bring in extra cash for you through the Homer Award. Company periodically "pays back" any profit beyond planned financial goals to employees. Recognition of holidays usually brings food goodies for employees. If you like tabs, stickers, emblems, pins and badges, you'll love sporting them on your glow-in-the-dark apron. "Regulars" make your job worthwhile.

    Cons

    Although this mega-corp is the leader in home improvement products, not so in retention of positive, qualified individuals. Too much time is spent by all departments on locating inventory that is either misplaced, not on the shelf or lost/late in shipment. Apologizing to the customer for product that is not there - even though the online store shows it at your location - is the pits. Manpower shortage due to constant turnover explains their constant "Now Hiring" banners usually found at the front of the store. Wages have dropped from what they were five years ago to $10hrly. Standard breaks and lunchtimes were constantly abused in the ten months of my employ. Because consistently few employees are expected to simultaneously fulfill multiple jobs interdepartmentally, many customers become impatient with their wait. They've grown to expect full service - a good thing - but HD needs to ram up its staff to better provide this relatively new concept in the do-it-yourself environment. If you want consistant hours, go somewhere else. I'm certain my willingness to work any hours, any days and holidays got my foot in the door. Depending on your department, while you're part-time, you may squeek in no more than 28hrs. Any time beyond that puts you into the "Obama Realm" with healthcare concerns and other worker's rights.
    This IS a right-to-work state, so there is no union. Be prepared for a regimented staff of premadonnas, likened to new lieutenants fresh out of officer training school, to lock your heels more often than not. Everything is "by the book" which lessens your ability to defend yourself against their harrassing remarks or irritating counseling sessions. You're likely to get the boot for defending yourself as I did. They allow absolutely no talk back. Paranoia is a constant for those employees worried about even the slightest infarction - like missing their daily or weekly sales goals. Had the company enough resources to study why their popularity among employees is waning, they'd learn that the answer, more often that not, rests with the associate who has direct contact with the customer - not some consultant working from his desk. Overworked, understaffed and blaming the employee for company ineptitude does not sail the ship. It creates a mutinous environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One manager's labeling or impression of his/her worker in a formal critique should remain confidential or it spells trouble for that employee. It is not a subject for the entire staff because it alienates that person from an unbiased opinion and treatment by other managers. High goals are necessary to meet and exceed the norm in this very competitive industry - but it comes at a price. Respect works both ways. Unless you listen to the employee and allow their direct interaction with your directives, you'll only succeed in distancing the entire management staff from the worker groups. Praise is a very good tool seldom used, even casually, at Home Depot. Ironically, I was actually praised for having performed very well in my job as I was being fired. When a manager learns to calm themselves before addressing an issue, problems are better resolved because there is "discussion" - from both sides of the fence. An employee's inability to properly explain or defend themselves against false alligations and insinuations is extremely offensive and beligerent on your part. There is no level playing ground in the corporate environment, but you should strive to level the inequities and strive to improve your "personnel" management skills. Some things are not by the book - life in general, which includes human nature - is not "by the book". Loosen up on your worker bees and soon your hive will produce the honey you so richly desire. Be willing to listen before judging. Be willing to change your mind mid-stream, once you know all the facts and finally, don't be afraid to be human. You WILL be given credit for relating to an employee if you admit you're not mechanically without fault. Every gear needs lubrication, but don't try to be the cog on every wheel.
