    I have been working at The Home Depot

    Pros

    flexible schedule, great for those working at HD for a second job great co-workers steady work, even in the off season potentially could transfer anywhere in the country

    Cons

    high turnover low pay with pitiful raises given only once a year management never wants to move part-time employees to full-time bad part-time medical benefits (might as well not even offer it) management often favors undeserving associates management acts like they care about associates but are really only there for their $, which is an attitude that pervades the company

    Advice to Management

    Increasing pay and giving better raises will ensure you have a loyal, well-trained workforce. Poverty level wages won't bring you anyone besides people who have made a circle through food service and retail. Stop favoring associates that play up to management over those that truly deserve accolades but don't brown nose.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great leadership, good bonus structure, fun contests and good work environment.

    Cons

    There is no vacation until after one year you get one week. After two years you get two weeks. Pretty awful.

    Advice to Management

    Fix vacation time.

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Kept busy, got to move around to different registers around the store

    Cons

    The management does not care about their employees. I was at the top level for cashiers and I was liked by all my customers because of the attention to detail I would bring with me. But that didn’t matter to upper management, when I went through a brief period of depression and anxiety because of a divorce that I was going through, I started being five or ten minutes late for work. I know it looked bad on me but it... was a struggle to get out of bed and be productive. Even though I would be late from time to time I would always stay later to make up for lost time and I never let my customers know how depressed I was. I was always on my A game. They never asked if I needed some help or anything like that, they only said that I was fired for being late. And they did this at the end of my shift that I stayed over for to cover the front end since my replacement called out. I think that was the worst part about them letting me go, they made sure that they got everything out of me before they let me go.

    Advice to Management

    Have some empathy people!! I know it’s a job but they sit there and preach about how we are family as well, a pretty messed up family if you ask me
