I worked at The Home Depot part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Decent training and a friendly atmosphere. One location I worked at for almost a year before moving. They were very much like a family. Everyone knew each other and worked well together. That store was very successful.

Cons

Managers of the store make all the difference in the work environment. I could tell that a store wasn't managed very well and it made the job harder for everyone to work together.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pick store managers very wisely and listen to lower employees about how to make the store run smoother.

    Treated like dirt. Lied to constantly by management. Wages were impossible to pay all my bills. Yearly raise was only a few pennies

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

    Pros

    Never bored; always seeking to be more efficient and deliver a better experience for customers and store Associates.

    Cons

    Publicly traded company; many indirect bad financial decisions made because of promises to stock holders or worry of the stock price. Also, not much vacation and long working hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to go back to the old days of focusing on your people. It needs to be implemented at every level including the stores. Provide opportunities to earn, buy or sell vacation.
