    Pros

    Great training programs, good friends made, I can do my own renovations now.

    Cons

    Management is a joke. They have no idea what's going on, and they expect you to do everything. They play favorites, and you often will not get your breaks. You will get write ups for no reason, I got a demotion for taking time of after a family member died. I would not recommend this company.

    Advice to Management

    Look more closely at who your hiring into the company.

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with customers and keeping dept clean and organized. Night crew always rocks!!

    Cons

    Not everyone has the same work ethic as I do. I'm not one to stand around and wait for work .. I actively seek out things to do.

    Advice to Management

    Dept manager .. once you've made a rule or decision .. stuck to it!! You're the boss .. it's not up for debate.

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement and encouraging management staff (depending on the store). Easy job to do and offered competitive wages depending on experience.

    Cons

    Usual issues with retail stores. Can at times be difficult to manage crowds with the amount of staff scheduled to work on busy days.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more and be consistent with policies. Some management more flexible than others which can be positive or negative depending.

    Pros

    It's a fun place to work, coworkers were nice and friendly.

    Cons

    Management tend to do their own thing, causing problems that overlap and accumulate over time, which ends up not getting done.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to them what exactly you want done, so that the associates know what to do.

    Pros

    -good pay for retail -good benefits -friendly & hard working staff -good training -corteous managers

    Cons

    -low pay for associates and management, 3% raise after one year gave a $0.30/hr raise -no cross training to other departments, so if associates call in sick or are unable to work, no other staff is available to cover shifts or give breaks -understaffed on retail floor, frequently work by yourself to cover an entire department -high turnover on all levels (3 different department managers in my department in 14 months) I would recommend the Home Depot as a short term employer, pay is too low to stay if other opportunities are available.

    Advice to Management

    Have more staff on the floor, cross train staff to be able to fill in the other departments during staff shortages, have two associates in each department on floor during weekdays until 7/8pm. Understaffing gives low moral and feeling overworked.
