    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The customers, the associates...make all the difference in working at this company. The company core values are very prevalent inside every wall of every store. Company is always training.

    Cons

    Raises could be better, feel that department supervisors should have better schedules, often times store management team makes decisions on promotions based off of popularity and how much they like you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider letting full time associates have set schedules.

    Pros

    GREAT job to have if you are working part time. They have always been pretty flexible with my work schedule, allowing me to receive my college degree.

    They normally start you above minimum wage if negotiated well.

    Great Benefits for all associates (401k, Stock Options, Dental, Vision) Medical only offered to full time associates

    Cons

    Management lacks communication skills.
    Dept. Supervisors try playing a bigger role than they are paid to
    Often directed by many people to do various things at one time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should train in courses on how to communicate with people. They need to understand that they need the associates to run a better business.

    Pros

    401K match, sick & vacation time, bi-annual bonus, stock options & health insurance.

    Cons

    Upper management politics and favoritism. Shady hiring practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire and appreciate people who will work, not who just look good on paper with little-to-no people skills. Be more personable and honest.
