I have been working at The Home Depot

Pros

Above market pay, good benefits.

Cons

Very common to see unqualified associates get promoted to manager/director level positions. That's were relationships come into play. Advancement is more about who you know vs. how competent / qualified you are.
Extremely poor feedback for internal interviews.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be fair when promoting associates. Value their education, previous work experience, and capacity vs. if they know how to do one specific job function.

    Pros

    The merchandising team that I am a part of tries very hard to make it's associates feel that are part of a "family".
    Many non-monetary benefits
    Good scedule.
    Fairly well-paying job for retail.

    Cons

    The Home Depot's is proud of their "strategic alliance with China" (as stated in the company new hire orientation handbook)
    Apparent preference for former military personnel to the point that otherwise qualified and outstanding employees are much less likely to be considered for promotions

    Pros

    Great working environment. My fellow associates are great people to work with. The benefits are good as you only need to be part time to receive heath insurance and vacation time.

    Cons

    Low pay for the work you do. Customers are demanding and expect you to know everything about the items in the store and give them the answers immediately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay starting pay for all associates. After a probation period, give another raise based on merit and experience. 9 bucks an hour in Hawaii is at the poverty level.
