Pros

Great team environment. great to work with the community on projects. associates care about each other like a family. the company invests a lot of time in training their associates to succeed.

Cons

getting time off as a saleried associate, annual review system seems unfair. having to meet percentages of certain ratings

Advice to ManagementAdvice

revise the rating sytem to NOT include requring the store to meet a percentage of o's, v's or I's. sometimes there are associates that deserve the higher rating, but there is no more room for them and they get held back.

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work for Home Depot is that they are very flexible with your schedule. They allow a great range of shifts to people that are just looking for part time work while their children are at school to other people wanting extra income that work 40 hours a week.

    Cons

    Some downsides to working at Home Depot are not enough associates on the floor at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to associates' needs

    Pros

    Home Depot is a grat place to learn. I am constantly being given the chance to learn dfferent things. The training is top notch. I had nothing but training for a week before I began working there, and two full days after being promoted. Additionally there are monthly training and safety reminders given to all employee.

    Cons

    Often times people in mid-level supervisory positions have a big head and try to make names for themselves by being bossy rather then by bein effective. Also, Home Depot has a very slow rate of flushing out the deadbeat employees, in part because they do not provide thebest feedback when one of doing poorly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees and their hopes for their careers within the company.
