    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.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, advancement opportunity, everything they do is in an effort to make the customer and associate experience as good as possible. Great benefits. 401k, tuition reimbursement, profit sharing, stock purchases at 15% discount, bonus payouts for salaried mgrs are exceptional.

    Cons

    Store hours shifts typically start as early as 5am and go as late as 11pm. Work enviroment can be stressful at times. Need to invest in having more associates on the floor. Stores are getting old and need updated.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in more associates. If you want to be the #1 customer service retailer in the world make sure the stores have enough bodies on the floor to execute your mission.

    Pros

    I got to see people I had not seen in many years. I got to make new acquaintances that said , my smile made their day.

    Cons

    Working near the entrance in the winter could be uncomfortable if not dressed properly. Working every weekend was a bit of a challenge as well.

    Advice to Management

    As a greeter, the turnover rate wouldn't be so high if there was rotation of weekends in place. It was a position that many employees didn't enjoy.
