    I worked at The Home Depot as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    As an intern I was given incredible responsibility managing my own project. My team and my manager were incredibly helpful, answering my endless stream of questoins.

    We had townhall meetings with company executives every other week. For example, we had a chance to listen and talk to the CEO, CIO, CMO, and even Bernie Marcus the founder of the The Home Depot himself.

    The culture is incredibly strong at The Home Depot and everything that the company does really is focused around providing customers the best value

    Cons

    No complains. I had a fantastic experience.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
