I worked at The Home Depot full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Great company, great benefits, great stock options, great bonuses, great company to build a career and make money- you can really support your family well on a HD salary.

Cons

Managers are not very educated, they don't know the business- they get promoted because "they know somebody" and as a result- they have no skills to manage, lead, teach and develop. They hold good people back from advancement, and discourage workers by their actions. They overwork the "good " workers and allow those who don't work to continue being slackers. I could go on and on... I worked for HD for over 8 years and gave up on the company due to very very very bad Management!!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop being stupid, promote the people that are highly skilled and can make a difference!! It only makes you looks better in the end- and it profits the company. Corporate needs to start assessing the SM and ASM and get rid of the bad seeds. Bad management really takes a toll on the workers, and makes for some extremely difficult working conditions. The associates are the heart, the foundation of the company they make it HUM, their work makes sales, their work drives customer service not the managers!! I was a manager and my team was the driving force in the store.

    Pros

    great work environment, not too stressful

    Cons

    the pay sucks, most everyone is part-time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If most of your associates are part-time at least give them a 10.00 per hour pay rate to help accommodate the lack of hours worked.
