    Good compensation and benefits package. The care about associates and the community.

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

    Pros

    The opportunity to work in various departments in the store. The pay is better as compared to other retail companies and the benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    The review process is not a good one. Prior to your DH writing your review, there is a round table discussion amongst all department heads who discuss your performance. Basically, it is a gossip session rather than just having your direct line supervisor and Assistant Store Manager rate your skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop using that stupid round table approach to Performance Reviews.

    Great management, local to my residence, great co workers. I enjoyed 5 years working at the mahwah home depot. I worked in the appliance sales department and i was treated great

    Cons

    I do not have many cons about the job. During the slower winter months they did attemp to cut as many hours as possible, and full time posistions were rare

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The Home Depot is hands down the number one customer service retailer in the world. All employees seem to come to work in good spirits and with a smile on. They strive to be very family orientated and are willing to work with employees in order to accommodate with the everyday family happenings.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is the crazy hours working in the retail industry and having a hard time finding people to hire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I strongly believe there needs to be some sort of review regarding employee wages. Sure there is opportunity to move up within the company but the wages do not match the expectations.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits. Keep fit. Advance potential. Meet new people. Learn so many new things and fix your "broken" by yourself! Transfer to a new city? - Transfer to a new store!

    Cons

    Working with the public, some customers can be rude! It can be a "Man's world" there!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your associates and back them up!
