Good hours, but lots of expectations that are met with punishment if not able to produce Home Depot sufficient results.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great customers and associates. Always changing conditions, never boring.

    Cons

    When they decide it is time for you to leave, no reason is too small.

    Don't destroy the good just to save a few dollars in payroll.

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

    Pros

    Most employees get along with each other
    Consistent schedule
    Company offers opportunity to encourage each other with praise and recognition
    Discovering great products to buy when you're off duty - and THD has plenty of them in stock and online
    Homer Fund for employees in unforeseen financial distress beyond their own control
    **Big one: They give you Thanksgiving off like all retailers should.**
    **Another big one: Success sharing program gives most employees bonus checks, sometimes over $100 above and beyond your base pay**

    Cons

    Quality of work experience is like the outcome of playing roulette: if your superiors are respectful, you will like it. If not, you might be miserable
    Success sharing not available to employees working less than three months prior to its distribution
    Attendance policy: chances of getting an undeserved "write-up" is approximately 100% if you work there long enough. Complaining about it yields only dismissive comments like, "I wouldn't worry/stress about it." In my case, such action might as well have been a gift card to Lowe's
    Some mid-level employees use obscenities (chronically) when they're upset about something such as items misplaced or not on the shelves correctly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revise your attendance policy so that only employees who are cavalier about adhering to their schedule get any form of discipline. They should not be punished when the reasons for tardiness, etc., is beyond their control.
    Expand success sharing to those working less than three months. They do contribute to THD's success from their first day
    Read the books "How Full Is Your Bucket," "The Set-up-to-Fail Syndrome" and "The Bully at Work," then base employee relations SOPs on those.
