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

    Pros

    Strong culture, focused and efficient. Take care of employees and provide opportunity to advance.

    Cons

    Rigid in approach, conservative in approach. Very confined to the hierarchy at HQ, despite claims to do the opposite

    Advice to Management

    So much time is spent on random management requests that it's hard to focus on the day-to-day business. IT is a major weakness - slows down innovation across the business. Bonuses are good but it'd be nice to get an associate discount in the stores.

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

    Pros

    Pay, benefits(a lot!), schedule(I and many others only work only Monday-Thursday), lots of opportunities, enthusiastic culture, good communication, sense of respect for employees, overtime is on a volunteer basis

    Cons

    Wish pay was slightly higher. Some others DCs are paying higher

    Advice to Management

    Wage should be alittle higher, 12-14/hr isn't bad but 15/hr is more ideal and competitive for DC work

    Pros

    I do enjoy working here. The people I work with make it easier working here. Everyone is friendly. Have good benefits. For part timers, they are very accommodating to getting another part time job to subsidize. If you have to work retail, this is the store to work for.

    Cons

    Of course, Increase in minimum wages.
