Pros

Decent pay vs. other retail chains, lots of on-the-job training, lots of opportunities to move up if willing.

Cons

Promotions often go to people unqualified for them Big cuts to part-timer benefits Upper management has a big disconnect from the sales floor Zero in-store discounts for employees

Advice to Management

Promote the correct people! I saw plenty of associates moved into department supervisor jobs knowing they wouldn't cut it.

    Pros

    The relationships established while with the organization were priceless. Also, the benefits will surely be pleasing to you and your family.

    Cons

    Depending on your title and the department you may not experience a satisfactory work/Life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Show more employee appreciation by offering a better work/life balance. The organization has policies in place to attempt to show a work/life balance; however, not all business areas adhere to the policy.

    I do not recommend this company to anyone looking for a job. They also cheated me out of my vacation pay by 1 day

    Pros

    There are no pros. This company is a joke to work for

    Cons

    They have nothing but kids just out of school & give them a management position wthin a couple years & they have no idea how to run that department. I designed kitchens & baths for them. All the way to the store manager down to the department head had no clue how to do my job. They couldn't even figure out the cost of a countertop which is based on square footage. The older people they have are nothing but failures. My department Head bragged that he owned his own construction company & was very good. Why is he now working at Home Depot. Because he's a failure.

    Advice to Management

    Learn a little something about each department. When an associate is busy helping a customer & someone else needs help. Stop & help them. Don't just keep walking by.
