    I worked at The Home Depot

    Pros

    You learn a lot about home needs, you take on real projects with customers, your able to help assist in designs and overall project, great stock options, great benefits

    Cons

    If you want to become full time it is essential that you take pride in your job, be reliable and take any opportunity that comes your way. If you are trying to move up to management then be professional in every aspect and you will get recognized. Do not be afraid of learning new products or departments. if your not willing to learn than you wont succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to employees and recognize potential leaders, dont play favoritism

    Pros

    Energetic environment
    Lots of growth for hourly assciaotes
    Values are are authenic
    Hourly associates seem to be most important
    They feed you well

    Cons

    Salaried supervisors work hours after they shift has end associates are gone..hours!
    You take work and your are given homework, like writing reviews and required ready of books
    Holidays mean nothing to Home Depot. Their values do not run that deep.
    Expensive health benefits
    Pay is low for the time you put in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest about the overtime for management in the interview. Difficult hours can and does put hardships on families. One of your Ops managers doesn't bring the same attitude everyday. Their mood shifts constantly and is hard to communicate with.

    Pros

    Consistent hours, great employees, great experience to earn. Lots to learn and always other coworkers willing to teach new hires plenty of information

    Cons

    The challenge is that they do demand a lot of high quality work and expect the best customer service to be supplied.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I worked as a MEA or MET and i believe that is the best position in Home Depot, you'll have a set schedule and all holidays off with the option to work the holidays. MEA's start off at $10.00 a hour which is good depending where you live. Home Depot give out bounces twice a year, it is base off how well your store did for that half.

    Cons

    Pay raise are only once a year and are very small. my last two raises were $0.16 both time and i got associate of the quarter on that last year. Its very hard to get promoted without knowing someone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow up on incomplete projects and find out who is responsible.
