The Second Best Company I've worked for.

Merchandising Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

I have been working at Home Depot full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThis company really takes care of it's associates. I have been employed for over ten years and have always felt like I was cared for. Now as a salaried assistant manager I can pass that on to my associates.

ConsI find that the younger the General Manager, there are roadblocks to communication, understanding and it seems that they don't hang on long before getting restless.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork to improve communication and feedback with not only your associates, but also with your Assistant managers, we feel as if we as lost out in the cold with no forum (i.e. TOWNHALLS). P.S. make sure you make us feel like we can REALLY speak our minds.
