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

Pros

You get satisfaction helping customers who are nice and appreciate the work you do. These are the ones that generally give you a little tip (even though your not supposed to accept them).

Cons

Not having an employee discount on in-store merchandise is ridiculous. Have to assist loading items for customers who can't foresee how their large purchases won't fit in their vehicle (two bathtubs into toyota corolla for example).

    Former Employee - D23 Associate Flooring Specialty Department in Springfield, VA

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay / benefits including stock.

    Cons

    Store managers and ASMs conspiring to fire you should you work there 5 or more years. They have no compassion for their employees. One store manager even admitted at Springfield, VA store "don't take getting fired personal, it's just business". Exactly it's just that, business. Time and attendance is ridiculous. 10 lates and you're fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What goes around comes around. Don't do injustice to anyone of your employees for the sake of $$$.

    Home Depot is a very cut throat, corporate like environment, wrapped up in a caring about you "mom and pop" like facade.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Competitive wages for a retail position.
    Military Discount.
    Growth potential for the right kind of person.
    Job skills that can be used to achieve positions in other companies.

    Cons

    Disorganized management who are very concerned with meeting personal monetary goals, and not actually managing.
    Company concerned only with the bottom line.
    "Too many chiefs not enough Indians"
    Very few hours to go around.
    Wage doesn't meet the work load.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage! Care for the people who make your substantial yearly salary keep coming in. Listen to complaints, and try to resolve at least some of them without first seeing how it may effect your own personal pay. Stand for what is right as a whole, and not what is right for you personally.
