    Pros

    I was treated like family. Had the opportunity to move up within 2 months of employment.

    Cons

    I could not find a store that I could transfer to when I moved.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees a better chance at finding another store to transfer to when they need to.

    Pros

    The empowerment to run your department the way you want, especially merchandising departments. Advancement is possible by management vote, not something you think you would be good at and just apply for.

    Cons

    Rules and company policy do not apply to assistant store managers and above, especially for retaliation. Policy is reworded and your screwed. If a Store Manager has been directed to "thin out" associates over the age of 58, he just tells an asm to fabricate a reason

    Advice to Management

    Meetings, especially "round table" the term What's said in this room, stay's in this room is a real eye opener for new ds's. It answers a lot of questions from the past. Promoting part time lot attendants to department supervisors, just because it's in house and no one else wanted the position. ??? What's wrong with this picture?

    Unlimited advancement opportunities, Flexible scheduling,

    Cons

    Pay is considerably low, Management is understaffed, Interview process was impersonal and positions offered at time of hire are not guaranteed.

    Pros

    They literally hire ANYONE. Since people quit daily, they are constantly hiring. It's like a revolving door...

    Cons

    They treat the employees horribly! It's literally sickening! The place is so messed up and the management is horrible. The starting wages are less than what you would make flipping hamburgers at Good Times! They treat you with zero respect. If you need a day off to say, get married, and they don't want to give it to you then the classic phrase is "you can quit and apply again". Don't work here. If you last one week, it's impressive. One month? You're a veteran. This place is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    The new CEO seriously needs to pay a visit to store 1531. There are some major issues there and it would literally blow his mind to see how poorly managed it is!

    Challenging environment, great training, lots of opportunities to grow and move within a competitive environment. Solid pay and benefits available.

    Long hours, especially around holidays. Makes family time a challenge. Operations somewhat challenging at times, but culture is growing.

    Pros

    Associates are dedicated to provide excellent customer service, home depot culture is different at each store depending on management and advancement is very easy if you have the sill sets. Vacation program allows you to schedule time off 90 days in advance if approved.

    Cons

    Hours are issued for 3 weeks in advance, however you never know when you will be working on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Work more closely with associates in terms of computer and procedure communication.
