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

Pros

Flexibility in managing your department. Opportunity to advance within the store. Excellant training.
Availability of store management to resolve customer issues quickly.

Cons

Low pay. No weekends off. You have to be available 24/7. Once you've reach the level of Department Manager hard to get promoted to a higher level.

Advice to Management

I'm not posting anything because they won't listen anyway.

    Pros

    The benefits were great . I learned allot . I liked most of the contractors and the street customers that weren't crazy or mean stress cases. There was a decent about of freedom.

    Cons

    Prepare to be a doormat and like it... You can serve over three hundred customers a month 3/4 of them liking you and a portion ok, but one bad customer will get you fired.
    You do get the feeling of being just a number and you don't get any where near the credit you should for excellent customer service ..... Allot of corporate smoke and mirrors.....

    Advice to Management

    Advance people by merit and not by politics..... Too much inbreeding in the company.
