I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Good salary and HQ located in good area

Cons

Not so great benefits, not so great work life balance, tolerance for management by intimidation; no employee discount in the store; rampant incompetence and dead weight; main focus is "cost out" so they spend a lot of money saving money (penny wise pound foolish); constant drama and lots of time spent/wasted "chasing our tails"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a look at the bureaucracy and cost of turnover - good employees leaving due to poor management

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

    Pros

    Those I work with are wonderful people. This si a decent place to work while you look to where you want to be.

    Cons

    Hourly employees are not really valued. I hired on 2011, min wage was 8.67, they paid me 9.40. Min wage in 2012 is 9.04 the new hires are paid 10.00. At my year wage increase I got .25, I am now making 9.56.........the new hires as i said are making 10.00

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value you hourly employees more we sell the product and make the relationships with the customers!

    Pros

    Lots of career opportunities to choose from

    Cons

    A lot of politics are involed with moving up the ladder with this company. If you are the type that want to get promoted by learning what you need to know for a certain position this company is not a good fit at all and this is what I've experienced for the past 4 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take notice of the hard workers in your stores. Those are the ones that are the future Asm or store managers. Not the ones that can suck up to you the best
