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

    Pros

    The Home Depot has a solid moral compass. They aren't about sacrificing their ethics for the sake of a sale, which I love. They also hire a diverse group of people and give a lot back to the community. They offer a lot of benefits and little treats for their employees. Although they push their associates to meet quota, they're realistic about what can and can't be accomplished.

    Cons

    Home Depot has two different sides to it. Store associates and those of us considered "store support" who are payed by the vendors but work in the stores 100% of the time. I constantly hear about how store associates are stressed out by management and their hours are being rearranged a lot, cut, and they often are stretched thin due to lack of full staffing. "Store support" associates who do merchandising have it better than those who work in specific departments. However, you never really gain knowledge unless you have the time to look things up and read packaging.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting associates based off of favoritism.

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Meeting and helping people with their home improvement projects. Working with other associates who are eager to help the customer. Learning the pros and cons of the products that HD sells.

    Cons

    First and foremost is the pay. Minimum wage. Training is poor with the on-the-job training even poorer. Dealing with customers who are rude and demand your attention immediately, even if your helping another customer at the time. Requested time off hard to get.

    Advice to Management

    If you really want to keep good associates, you need to offer them more pay. Your “Success Sharing” is not really meaningful to most associates.
