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

    Pros

    Work life balance in my group is pretty great, not so great in many others, I seem to have gotten very lucky when I blindly walked into the lions den

    Cons

    Culture is very dog eat dog, people throw each other under the bus left and right, folks get fired all the time, benefits are horrendous for a company this size. Works we'll if it's your first good job but experienced hires won't drink the punch like everyone else. Gave it a fair shot but will be delighted to turn the page on this chapter

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Acquired a lot of home renovation knowledge. The associates who have been there the longest are mostly helpful. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Not enough employees during peak hours or during the overnight shift. No benefits unless full time. High turnover in the store. Certain group of managers and associates backstab others. HR person hard to get in touch with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The store managers should not be playing favorites.
