I worked at The Home Depot as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

The team that I worked with were very professional and courteous. The majority of the full time staff were professional as well.

Cons

The Project Manager that was over our project was very difficult and treated us with no respect at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat the people that help your company survive with respect, and you will get so much more from them.

    Current Employee - Sales Flooring Associate in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work with people, interact with customers, use computers, write orders, develop sales skills

    Cons

    No commission, lifting 70lb 18x18 boxes of tile to head level when stocking. No back brace provided. Routinely moving, lifting, 8 foot long bales of flooring, 50 lb boxes of 12x12 tile, and being short staffed in dept. Corporate limits hours associates can work. Management does not live the values it has on its website. Very stressful job. floating schedule, hourly pay is not commensurate with skill level required to properly do sales job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer some sort of commission for each completed sale, staff more associates in department, and younger associates to move tile. To corporate, allow more hours per store for stocking. Frank Blake would be wise to become an undercover boss to see how his policies is affecting the Home Depot Brand and employees.
