    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    District Visibility, company provided laptop, Iphone, Tablet
    Meet lots of great people people including CEO
    Training trips to our HQ in Atlanta, all expenses paid for management
    Be a part of a team and feel that I make a difference
    Fast paced environment
    Tons of potential for job growth and promotions
    Give back to the community
    Love our company values
    Get to kick Lowes butt all day everyday

    Cons

    Lots of hours for management
    Low starting pay for hourly associates
    Horrible and expensive health benefits
    Deal with bosses that steal ideas for their own benefit
    No employee discount
    Deal with customers that you just want to smack up side their head sometimes
    Pay is OK but should be better for all especially hourly associates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop putting people in leadership roles that can only talk the talk but can not walk the walk.
    Some of the people that work in Atlanta at our HQ are stuck up snobs. Get over yourself!

    I have been working at The Home Depot

    Pros

    Coworkers are friendly and understanding. The head cashiers and managers, all the way up to store manager are helpful and easy to talk to. They want you to succeed and do what they can to motivate you and acknowledge you for your work.

    Cons

    Base pay is low and raises are only given yearly. Scheduling is unpredictable and it's hard to get extra hours. Weekends off are rare even in the slow season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more full time positions and give more substantial raises to employees that work hard. I feel like this company loses a lot of awesome people simply because they can't support themselves with this job.

    Pros

    higher than average potential for HD employees

    Cons

    Division is badly managed and is not operated in a manner consistent with HD stores.

    Management at top tier needs to come from HD box stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love what you are doing, however, please keep a close watch on those overzealous Assistant store managers, and specialty managers. I also think Home Depot is a very good place to work, develop and acquire very good Knowledge. And finally, Kudos to those trainings!
