Great until I was Terminated for the store Management. Nonetheless they have there reasons.

Lithia Springs, GA

ProsGreat company. Good chance for advancement, if you want to.! Home Depot offers a lot of product knowledge classes for there associates. The company offers there associates good benefits. Home Depot have metric "SOP"s, and as long as the man hours per-scribed to your department you shouldn't have a problem.

ConsMy Store Management Bullies.

Management are too controlling at my store.!!!!!

Management:

-Over delegate without without providing enough direction
-Has lack of trust and respect in the talent of direction reports and others
-Hoards, keeps the good stuff for him/herself
-Doesn't know how to empower others
-Delegates but micromanages others
-Lack a plan of how to work through others
-Throw task at people; doesn't communicate the bigger picture
-overdecorates without providing enough direction or help
-Doesn't do enough work him/herself
-Have unrealistic expectations of direct reports and others
-over-structure tasks and decisions before delegating them to the point of limiting individual initiative

   If you have Building experience, and product knowledge, know how to sell any product or service the store offers, or you know how to push a few buttons to resolve any customers needs in a timely matter so that the customer can quickly return to there job with everything they didn't remember to complete there job with in a minimal amount of down time. In other words if you know the product or services offered out of store, and can sell the whole project it seems your a threat.

I was fired after 7years with the Home Depot
1 complaint--
1 $295 markdown
Final reason was "Poor performance"

Double Platinum award
Executive Award

and several more Awards and accomplishments with the Home Depot

I'm 53 and it seems some are working harder to get out of work.
