Former Employee - Merchandiser in San Jose, CA
Former Employee - Merchandiser in San Jose, CA

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

Pros

40 hours a week. Sometimes you would work in teams, so I got to meet some interesting people.

Cons

When I first started working I didn't understand what a merchandiser did. After a couple of days I had mastered the job. In this position there wasn't a high chance of being promoted or even getting a raise. I hardly call a $0.23 for working a year a raise. You pretty much did everything store associated did, but more. We restocked, set up displays, clean, and do customer service. All this work starting at 5am, not worth it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Higher people that can do the job,.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to re-train individuals about core,and family values,learn respect for peoples integrity,and intelligence,do not tear individuals down,and make them feel targeted,or intimidated,Maybe you won't have such a high turnover rate.There are plenty of highly Intelligent people who work and do not receive the credibility they deserve.

    Sexually harassed by manager

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

    Pros

    I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone.

    Cons

    I was sexually harassed by one of the managers at Home Depot as an employee. When I reported it to the Human Resources manager, I was essentially told that I must be imagining it. From that point on, not only did the harassment continue but other managers made my work hours very unpleasant until I quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put into place real protections for your workers.
