I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (more than 3 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

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

    Pros

    Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Good learning curve for younger people. Or for older workers who need to keep busy. Get ready for customers who feel they are entitled to yell at you for not having 4 foot bathtubs in stock. Schedules can be odd at times. I've seen more people, including supervisors fired in 4 months, than in a lifetime elsewhere.
