Featured Review

Current Employee - Millwork Sales Specialist

I have been working at The Home Depot full-time

Pros

The Home Depot has unique policies that make working for them, and staying with them extremely beneficial with most promotions being internal. They took care of their employees amazingly during the... COVID-19 pandemic and they have been very good to me in general. They have awards that you can win that not only give you recognition but cash value as well, and there are gifts to be earned. The Home Depot does an amazing job of making the work environment friendly and fun with parties and making sure that management keeps in contact with its associate with the open door policy.

Cons

No business is perfect, there are certainly annoying systems in this company and some of the procedures that we have to follow is very annoying. I have seen my fair share of employees that I did not... feel should still be with the company because of the way they treated customers and associates, but no business is perfect and I understand that even people with bad people skills still add value to this company.

Advice to Management

Be mindful of the people with bad people skills and coach/mentor these people on how to improve on those skills before moving them up in the company whether that be supervisor, manager, whatever.
