I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good salary and HQ located in good area

Cons

Not so great benefits, not so great work life balance, tolerance for management by intimidation; no employee discount in the store; rampant incompetence and dead weight; main focus is "cost out" so they spend a lot of money saving money (penny wise pound foolish); constant drama and lots of time spent/wasted "chasing our tails"

Advice to Management

Take a look at the bureaucracy and cost of turnover - good employees leaving due to poor management

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -really friendly people.
    -great experience, makes it easier to get other jobs
    -fun customers

    Cons

    -You have to bug them to let you train.
    -can be overwhelming at times.
    -some management is uptight.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so uptight, some of us are young and are just joining the workforce and we are going to make mistakes, just allow us to learn from them instead of yelling at us.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Those I work with are wonderful people. This si a decent place to work while you look to where you want to be.

    Cons

    Hourly employees are not really valued. I hired on 2011, min wage was 8.67, they paid me 9.40. Min wage in 2012 is 9.04 the new hires are paid 10.00. At my year wage increase I got .25, I am now making 9.56.........the new hires as i said are making 10.00

    Advice to Management

    Value you hourly employees more we sell the product and make the relationships with the customers!
