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

Pros

Wide variety of products and services to offer.

Cons

Commission only sales anywhere is a tall order--especially when you are required to generate your own appointments.

Advice to Management

Be radical: Let all of your outside sales reps have the chance to sell all products. Offer a base salary.

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

    Pros

    There's a few pros to this job. One is the job security, you have to really be trying to lose your job in order to get fired. The pay is decent compared to other retail companies. Associates get a great deal on home depot stock which for the moment is doing well. Many opprotunities for promotions. travel compensation. Set hours mon-fri.

    Cons

    (This is from my own personal experiences and does not reflect every Home Depot or every Met team) Depending on the position they pay is about the same across the country, which can be negitive if you live in an area that has a higher standard of living. Management seems to give those who work hard a larger majority of the work, and those that tail them and brown nose all day the promotions, which is some-what backwards. A lot of those who ork there complain about not getting that positive recognition that can all so motivating to those whom appreciate it.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your employees, and reward those whom show up on time and do their job thoroughly and correct.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    *SUPER fun crew. *Management is understanding of situations and working with schedules (for the most part).

    Cons

    *Some supervisors think they are better than everyone else and treat associates like they're worthless/children. *Management doesn't consult the associate before accusing them of petty things.

    Advice to Management

    Someone needs to go through and evaluate the management from an hourly associates perspective and see what it's REALLY like to work for The Home Depot...
