    Pros

    Great Pay!!! Awesome Bonus!!! The people that you work with will help you grow to be better at your career. The company has a ton of promotions within.

    Cons

    Continues to restructure the programs and positions all of the time. Is never steady and can be hard to depend on as a long term position when you are part of a support function for the stores.

    Pros

    Great pay!!! Awesome Bonus!!! The people around you help develop your career. It promotes from within and will not go looking for outside talent for upper management positions.

    Cons

    Contant change…Always switching roles and positions which makes it hard to depend on them when you are a support function for the stores.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    As a retail associate, the store feels like a community. Most employees are on a first name basis. Customer satisfaction is priority. Every single employee is empowered to give discounts, markdowns, etc. Competitive pay. Success sharing.

    Cons

    Pay is competitive, but I certainly wouldn't accept anything less. Most training is done entirely on computer, no personal instruction. Individual growth is not encouraged or well-recognized. Under-qualified and apathetic employees fill positions while hard work is unrewarded. Hours are inconsistent. Raises are minimal, and based on blanket standards. Ambitious employees risk being pigeon-holed and burned-out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I dont see passion in my fellow employees. Many sales associates are under-qualified. Lower-management and supervisors are especially under-qualified. More hands-on training, stimulation, and employee nurturing can ensure that positions are filled by the right people. Increasing pay to a BETTER than competitive standard might inspire employees.

    Pros

    They have great customer service along with a large virility or tools and equipment needed for customers to get in and get out happy.

    Cons

    Not too many cons with this company. I'd have to say prices on bigger equipment is alittle pricy but over all I'm not complaining

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Home Depot offers many opportunities, both laterally and through promotion. If you are willing to relocate, create networks, and put in the extra effort, you will reach your career and income goals.

    Cons

    Many associates are not there for the right reasons. Since it is hard to measure quality and performance, many of these associates get by doing as little as possible while others receive no credit for the hard work that they have completed and have put effort into.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more aware of your associates activities and hold them accountable.
