I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

If you work hard and show interest in operations (the running of the business), there will be many opportunities for advancement. Extensive training, including video classes, literature, hands-on demos and, occasionally, large convention-style shows.

Cons

The vast majority of available job positions are part-time (16-20 hours per week). You will need to be very flexible with availability and physical readiness. Wages are competitive yet insufficient for the type of work involved (Heavy lifting, lift truck operation, rude customers, fast-paced routine, irrational sales goals for specialists). Benefits are mediocre at best.

Advice to Management

Improve medical benefits coverage. Open up more full time slots for freight and receiving associates. Study local consumer trends more in-depth, specially special-order purchasing and kitchen design costs. Focus more on asset-protection best practices and add more police detail to stores in or around neighborhoods with high crime rates.
