Insurance benefits even as an hourly employee. Customers appreciate your help. I never had a problem getting my forty hours in. Quarterly bonuses are helpful but seldom seen. No cleaning of the store. I know that doesn't seem like much but that store is huge.
Upper management never acknowledges any achievements. During inventory time I was asked three weeks in a row to work overnight shifts to get everything tagged. I was a department supervisor and they are always the fallguys for the management when something goes wrong. After being with Home Depot for six months they gave the department supervisors another "opportunity" which was taking on more work doing all the purchasing for your departments. Many different instances when the management and I were in confrontations because we had a disagreement. Packdown is a word anyone working for Home Depot will come to hate. This is the process of a list of products that have to be brought down from the upper shelves when they have sold out. Problem with this is that most of the time the department supervisor will be griped out for this not getting done. You are supposed to rely on your associates that are subordinates to finish this on your days off or before you come in for the day. If this task is not finished again dept sup's are the one taking the heat. Lastly, there are many more reports to finish on a weekly basis that along with waiting on customers, packdown, and not having enough employees because of labor being too high, are impossible to finish. This causes quite a bit of undue stress.
Advice to Management
Listen to your employees and give them a pat on the back when something goes right. Realize that the employees "under" you doesn't mean you can berate them. Customers are the reason you are even employed so treat them as such.
