    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great service project to community. Great Benefits that are far reaching beyond health and insurance. Great Coworkers and direct reports. Great opportunity to learn invaluable lessons about running a business and how to take a holistic approach to running an operational and profitable business. You will learn invaluable DIY skills as a perk. You will learn how to manage difficult situations both in house and with customers. You will learn how to grow as a business person and do the impossible.

    Cons

    Personal and professional growth hurts. It will tedious and exhausting. No matter your experience or aptitude, working at the home depot is exhausting. You will work for people who were promoted based on potential or their networking skills, not necessarily ability or application of good leadership. They probably wont have a business degree nor specialize in logistics, teaching, or communication. I personally have worked for great and very horrible bosses here. It's important to pick one's battles. Transfer until you find a solid Store manager and ASM team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be humble, and then be more humble, and then assess whether you create an environment where others feel welcome to bring you their feedback, and consider whether you meet their feedback with quiet listening or a rebuttal. I have a comprehensive understanding of business and have achieved daily and weekly consistently, but am consistently degraded and demeaned and my accomplishments are unrecognized or questioned. This past year I have worked for a prideful bully. In years past my store manager was one who I truly admired.

    Pros

    success sharing bonuses
    flexible scheduling for part timers

    Cons

    long shifts
    management feels the need to baby sit employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All managers are hired internally-- for a company like home depot this allows most of their managers to have little management training and outside work experience.

    Pros

    The pay & benefits are good. It feels like a family, not just a job. The bonuses can be great!

    Cons

    Expectations can be hard to meet. Upper management makes frequent visits to the store & everything must be in order.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love the management at my store. They were really helpful getting me started with the company. They will always smile and say hello every time I see them, and are available if I ever need advice.
