I worked at The Home Depot full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

There is nothing good to say about this company except that there is a Willy's, Starbucks, and Chick Filet close by.

Cons

No appreciation shown to employees. Promotions given based on time spent in the office and not actual work. No work life balance or flexibility regarding days off. No employee discounts (Lowes' employees get them and their prices are not more expensive than Home Depot)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start appreciating the low men on the totem pole. Give an employee discount. Be more accommodating to people for days off during the holidays. Amend the bonus structure.

    Pros

    The Bonuses. Stock options. Option to purchase Stocks.

    Cons

    Various Store Manager business directions and processes. Some are VERY UNREALISTIC!!!!!! Some Store Managers run the stores without and regards to the associates. Some associates feel as if they are worthless. The feelings are the hourly's are a dime a dozen!!! Health benefits are expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Must have patience. Some Assist Managers are forced to take medical leave due to stress and pressure. Then Retaliated and treated differently when returning back from leave.

    Pros

    If you want part time work while you finish your education, this could be a good fit. If you are young and want to work retail try it. Benefits and vacation can be earned.

    Cons

    Older workers being edged out. The emphasis on experience is gone. Minimum staffing with increased workload. It is very different from 10 years ago. No job security unless you are interested in moving forward for not such good wages to start. Management gives conflicting orders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your older workers. They have the most to offer and the reasons to stay. A positive statement goes further than a writeup for something minor.
