    I have been working at The Home Depot

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits , stock purchase plan , 401k match. Can't find it with any other home improvement sales company.

    Cons

    People at the top think people are motivated by fear and constant threatening of losing your job. "Everyone is replaceable" is a constant message. You have to walk on eggshells constantly because if you ever speak up there is a good chance you will be terminated. Not for the weak minded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees instead of just letting them turnover constantly. Very difficult to be successful long term.

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

    Pros

    Job position, I am respected, pay is ok.
    Great coworkers. Managers are improving!

    Cons

    Pay is ok, of course I think I'm worth more. I've been with THD for four years, so I'm doing ok.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect is an enormous part of the relationship between management and non-management. Many of us are here because we have to be, but some of us love our jobs, too. Treat us all as an asset because my sales boosts your bonus.

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The department heads and managers were helpful and more than happy to work around a high schooler's schedule, pay is more than reasonable for a high school or college student, work environment is fast paced and engaging without being overwhelming, sense of community within departments.

    Cons

    Being a young, female employee, I often dealt with customers who were reluctant or blatantly refused my help based on my gender, 90% of male employees were awesome but the handful that either spoke down to me or spoke to me inappropriately was discouraging and uncomfortable and made the work environment tense at times.
