Pros

If you take direction well, have a consistent good work ethic AND a consistent positive attitude, The Home Depot can become a career. You can move positions once or twice in a year and slowly work your way up the "food chain". Although you must always try to go above and beyond, whether it's with how you left your department looking after closing or if it's how well you assisted that irritated customer that had been misdirected twice already. Praise is given when you have REALLY earned it. I've moved six times in just three years, getting four small raises.

Cons

The raises are minimal. Until you get into management you don't make much. (The previous statement really applies to people about 30 and under without outstanding resumes.) Also, depending on the personalities of the people in management, you may seem to feel unappreciated. As soon as you realize you should never hold high expectations for Home Depot OR any of your coworkers, you will do fine. Fend for yourself.

Advice to Management

When working with people, obviously some need to just be told what to do, but ask for an associates help. Asking someone is always better than "You have to get this done tonight, okay?". Some managers have it down. Also, communicate with other managers. Communication seems to be the issue in every store, and I've worked in three stores in three states.

    Pros

    Job Security, They don't have layoffs and there are lots of opportunity in the company. You can also transfer to different locations for advancement. Pay at the leadership level is not bad and the benefits are great at the DC.

    Cons

    Advancement is difficult. They hire from the outside for most of the leadership positions. If you want to be a manager, you better start as one or you will not become one.

    Advice to Management

    Train your associates to be leaders and promote from withen.

    Pros

    You get lots of training.Get to help lots of customers.

    Cons

    Not very flexable working hours.You may start at 6am one day and 1 pm the next. Pay is not match your abilties.In 2.5 years and 13 homer badges only made $9.59 pr hr and had to put up with lousie work hours.

    Advice to Management

    Show your good employes that you really care about them.Reward them with a liveing wage. Most have to have two jobes to make ends meet.
