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

    Pros

    Large inventory, good employees at the store level.
    Good price on most items.

    Cons

    Constantly under staffed = irritated customers
    Company is a victim of its success... grew too fast.
    Corporate philosophy changed from being the best at what they did to trying to do everything (HD Supply, Landscape, Home services, etc)
    Quick expansion required hiring store employees without hardware/construction experience. Training is inadequate for these employees.
    Overtime is rare.
    You are expected to get your work (mechandise sets) done without the proper time/resources.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the "professional hourly employees" and hire associates with hardware/construction experience. The online training modules are a poor substitute for actual live hands-on training.
