    Pros

    Home Depot invests time and money to train its managers and after working in retail management for 10 + years. Home Depot had the BEST management training, hands down. They foster an entrepreneurial spirit in their associates and give their management room to soar.

    Cons

    Home Depot piles work onto a few dependable associates and works them until they can no longer. If you work in garden expect no help from the rest of the store associates. No lighting in straw trailers or outside shining in, Pitch Black, however associates are expected to load pinestraw at all open business hours. The trailers have holes in the floors and I always feared they were a home to snakes. During summer months the lumber and garden, mainly garden carry the profitablity of the store, however payroll hours are not consistent with sales volume. They expect you to do it alone and to do it all.

    Advice to Management

    When you say yes mean it. When you say no mean it! When you make a decision stand behind it. When a store manager says yes to everything it makes nothing he says mean anything.


  2. Quality work experience within a structured demanding positive atmosphere
