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

Pros

The Home Depot Corporation is a great company to work for. They have been around for years and will continue to be. They tend to adapt fairly well to changes in market trends and are willing to spend money to make money.

Cons

Local management can really screw things up for you and it can take a while for the home office to catch on.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go back to rewarding longevity....

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Can be fun, I like retail but management at the store level makes a big difference

    Cons

    The jump from associate to department supervisor is huge in responsibility and workload but pitiful in wage difference. This is across the company. Individual managers at the store can make or break your experience there. Keep a paper trail, you may need it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your supervisors, they are your middle management at the store and know more than you know. Be nice if you paid them accordingly too.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, lots of good people as co-workers

    Cons

    Management is disfunctional. Uneducated bullies are promoted over people who are good at their job. Rules are not applied evenly. There are many disconnects between how corporate says the company functions and how it really does. The inverted pyramid is a crock. Corporate needs to decide whether they are simply a warehouse store or whether they want to provide a actual "we can help" as advertised and then staff accordingly. They do not currently staff departments sufficiently to "help" customers. Associates are not supported by corporate. The prevailing mode is "customer service" from associates and dis-interest from management after.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See the cons. You are wasting good talent. You also need to actually follow your own philosophy. Less resources spent on useless "walks" and more on the day to day tools associates need to do their job.
