I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible with your schedule employee events Cool co-workers Can be pretty laid back at times you get to learn some basic household improvements and learn how to fix things as well

Cons

glass ceiling, promotion within the store is really low, you may have to know someone to move up - lack of supplies to do jobs at times -constantly have to cover for other departments -not enough employees

Advice to Management

They need to build store morale, hire enough employees, and promote from within the store, and respectful to employees

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A huge company with a diverse range of opportunities. I have worked with UI development, web services, BPM, messaging, and data integration in general. People are very team oriented and goal driven. Large array of benefits.

    Cons

    Pay seem to be just below the median for this type of IT work. Not enough vacation time, and 401k/stock options take 2-3 years to vest. Company is quite large, so getting visibility can be difficult and people become stuck and remain in corporate bureaucracy for too long.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting cost with contractors and make a more solid investment in your key IT professionals.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of work to do during the day. Better pay than working on the floor.

    Cons

    Lack of training done by supervisor. No overtime, maximum 40 hrs a week. Expensive insurance, low quality insurance. To many young people work there and make a poor professional environment.

    Advice to Management

    Re-work everything and stop hiring young, unmotivated, unprofessional employees. Raise the pay, get better insurance.
