    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

    my co workers are great and my bosses treat everyone with respect. they seem to reward you for your accomplishments. Profit sharing is good.

    Cons

    hard to get full time, working around all the chemical can hurt some people. The customer can sometime get vulgar and abusive, but I get that everywhere in customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. They seem to know what there doing. I have enjoyed working there for over 4 years. the only change I would make is no more 4 hour shifts for part time employees.

    Pros

    Nice co workers. Easy job, you get to play with forklifts

    Cons

    You have to work weekends. Corporate structure so it kinda feels like your just a number to anyone above your direct supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Get on the employees level. Get to know them a little on a personal level like their family life, hobbies etc.
