Pros

Steady work, and after a period of time I was offered a set schedule vs. one that fluctuates each week.

Cons

They seemed to hire far too many people who literally had NO experience in any construction trade... and incompetence on the job was overlooked or ignored, which created much more work for others who had to tack up the slack.

Advice to Management

Create a culture of performance and reward vs. supervisors who find "being cool" or "being friends" with their subordinates more important than customer service.

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

    Pros

    -Decent starting pay for those with a minimal amount of retail exerience.
    -Fun work environment on most days.
    -Great group of associates to work with.
    -Tolerable health benefits and good stock discounts and retirement plan.

    Cons

    -Management doesn't fight to increase your pay when you excel at your job.
    -No commission sales
    -Upper executive and store management are difficult to work for and very unfair.
    -Ridiculous hours but it is retail after all.

    Advice to Management

    Stop running your store like a concentration camp and lighten up a little. Your employees bust their humps for the company and shouldn't be made to feel like children. Leave the micromanaging out of your management style because all it is doing is making your emloyees miserable and afraid of being terminated for the smallest infradctions.

    Pros

    By the numbers:
    1. Benefits
    2. Peers unequal to none
    3. Very flexible hours

    Cons

    Compensation, wages, did I say compensation..... Very high expectations in the way you consultant the customer. This level of consulting in most industries commands $50 an hour.

    Advice to Management

    COMMUNICATE to employees on regular basis, not only to store management. This requires a two communication. In terms of the work flexibility, no one does it better.
