    Pros

    District Visibility, company provided laptop, Iphone, Tablet
    Meet lots of great people people including CEO
    Training trips to our HQ in Atlanta, all expenses paid for management
    Be a part of a team and feel that I make a difference
    Fast paced environment
    Tons of potential for job growth and promotions
    Give back to the community
    Love our company values
    Get to kick Lowes butt all day everyday

    Cons

    Lots of hours for management
    Low starting pay for hourly associates
    Horrible and expensive health benefits
    Deal with bosses that steal ideas for their own benefit
    No employee discount
    Deal with customers that you just want to smack up side their head sometimes
    Pay is OK but should be better for all especially hourly associates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop putting people in leadership roles that can only talk the talk but can not walk the walk.
    Some of the people that work in Atlanta at our HQ are stuck up snobs. Get over yourself!

    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

    higher than average potential for HD employees

    Cons

    Division is badly managed and is not operated in a manner consistent with HD stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management at top tier needs to come from HD box stores.
