    My 12 years with HD

    Kitchen and Bath Designer (Former Employee) Oklahoma City, OK

    ProsLoved my job, I really liked doing designs for customers and making them happy with their choices

    ConsManagement in this store is not very good to some of his associates. He rode me pretty hard, wrote me more than any one has ever done. Matter of fact I don't think I ever got a write up until he came to this store. I made good money and loved my job, but I did get very sick with an uncontrolled Diabetes. I was sick all of the time and didn't know why. Now I do. The stress from management contributed to my glucose levels being so high all the time

    Advice to Senior ManagementHe needs to be personable and absolutely stop riding people on the floor. He did this often. I thought this was never approbiate. and I personally had this done to me and I witnessed several other associates that were being repromanded in this manner

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Department Supervisor

    Department Supervisor (Former Employee) Lake Forest, CA

    ProsBefore, the company offered a flexible schedule, and provided part-time benefits. I have friends who still work here, and I have heard that has changed.

    Great part time job

    Garden Sales Associate (Current Employee) Largo, FL

    ProsNever a dull moment usually the store is so busy that the time just flies. Scheduling around school or other priorities stress free and accommodating, A lot of mentoring available from experienced workers. Ability to transfer to different departments throughout the store. Paid training and benefits even for part time. Very friendly. Everyone gets a bonus when store goes over sales goals.

    ConsThe floor is concrete and very hard on your feet. It is difficult most times to do the required training on the computers because the scheduling requirements demand you on the floor. There is never enough staff in departments to help customers and bring down items from overheads for customers in a timely manner
