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

Pros

Reasonable pay for position, strong advancement opportunities. Legacy employees make the place feel like family. Sexy orange aprons. Actual breaks. Wow, pretty sweet!

Cons

Aptitude of recruiting co-workers not the finest. Retail hours forced upon employees. Sometimes, little support from store leadership. The place has been consulted to death.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep working to recover from the Nardelli setback era... give the company back to Blank.

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers and managers. Strong team spirit. Many opportunities for advancement.

    This company takes customer service and uses it like a set of tools; different people and deals for every person, but all working together for the bigger project.

    Cons

    Flexibility of schedule depending on department.

    The system used to set up schedules can be frustrating if you are not on a set schedule/ have less tenure. That being said, this can be a major problem if you are the newest member of the team and want a certain day of the week or holiday off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please remember that turnover is a costly occurrence; don't treat entry-level employees as expendable tools, make them vital assets.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast moving company with good track record of success over the past few years. Demanding schedule - always seems like a fire drill is moment away. Hard to plan in advance because things change all the time. Lots of input from senior management and lots of exposure. Business is growing and fast!!

    Cons

    SSC is very political and feels as though a "screw-up" can end a career. Important to get on the good side, personally, with leadership. Promotions occur randomly and usually are tied to good work, but without any particular set of standards. Only 6 holidays a year and vacation is almost looked down on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to standardize things more, across the board.
