Current Employee – been working at Home Depot
Pros – Flexable schedule works with my full time job. I have received some good recognition and money with that recognition. I like my co-workers.
Cons – Pay, pay, and pay. No 90 day probation end pay increase???? No raise until after a year on the job??
I got my first Homer award after 7 months (in conjuction with being employee of the month) My Department Head admitted that I should have gotten previous Homer awards due to the fact that I was awarded the "Customer Service All-Star" award previously.
No employee discount. I may think worse of that then the pay level. I had never heard of a retail establishment that doesn't offer an employee discount until I was hired here. Customers ask about it and are shocked when they hear that there is no discount. I know there used to be one.
Advice to Senior Management – Focus on staff recognition. When someone deserves a Homer award follow up on it and get it done. It feels good to be recognized. It felt nice to hear that I should have earned more Homers but it would have been nicer to actually receive more Homers. Staff recognition is key. Work performace goes up with reward for good work and will also go down if staff feel that their good work is never recognized.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
