    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    It is very easy to get promoted...in the store but once you cross over to the corporate world it's more about who you know and whose butt you're willing to kiss to get ahead. It's very hard to leave because Home Depot is definitely like a family...a dysfunctional one but one none the less. I've had the pleasure of working with some really great managers and supervisors who desperately cared about my career and pushed me to branch out from the store to corporate! You make a lot of lifetime friends and industry connections that will last a lifetime. Having Home Depot on your resume is a plus...especially if you work or have worked at the Store Support Center!

    Cons

    Pay...it could definitely be higher for the work that you do and the benefits are way too expensive for an hourly associate. The Benefits Choice Center is managed by a third party of the level of customer service is total opposite of that provided by Home Depot associates. The left hand does not always know what the right hand is doing and while change is inevitable it happens a little more than desired. There have been several data breaches, one of which involved Citibank our payroll card provider and servicer, which led to the double payment and non-payment of several of our associates. Home Depot does not do enough to protect their associates from fraud and breaches and should seriously consider getting rid of Citibank.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider our relationships with Citibank, Aetna (Short & Long Term Disability Provider), and Hewitt (Benefits Choice Center). We can do better for our associates in these areas and should consider how their lack of customer service and delayed response time in correcting errors effects the relationships between associates and the Store Support Center. We can learn a lot from the Merchandising Execution Teams matrix and model and should consider adapting some their standards across the board. If we are going to be the #1 customer service retailer in the world we have to be one team with one effort and one overall goal...success!

    Pros

    Investing heavily in technology, innovative, process oriented, dynamic, great benefits. If you can never be tired of learning and love new challenges that is the place to be. teleworking available. Customer service comes first.

    Cons

    Teleworking not extended to all IT, Process oriented but the processes may not be fully documented or could be hard to understand at times. Networking is a must to succeed .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing the right thing

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Starting wage, full time benefits, co workers. Many of the other so called pros started to diminish the longer I was employed.

    Cons

    Everything else. Part timers are treated like slaves. No work/life balance. Another corporate juggernaut that is I it as big as it is because of the low level of life it forces on employees. I work part time and make $10 an hour and last year grossed 13k. No one can be expected to live on that. Having worked for both I can genuinely say there is no difference in work life between THD and Walmart.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more thankful for your employees. We aren't just numbers
