    Cons

    -No employee discount at Home Depot -Day shift starts at 6am. Night team works over night. 6am-2:30pm and 9pm-7am respectively. (But you belong to only one of these teams.) -All work is timed and management pressures for both quality and quantity. -Only 4 hours of sick time per month -Shift covering/switching doesn't exist due to everyone having the same schedule. -You will be walking on concrete all day.

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

    Pros

    I loved working at Home Depot. Most of the customers you deal with are contractors and they usually are knowledgeable about their work and necessary tools. The company really cares about the employees and you can review great benefits.

    Cons

    No major downside. Management is good and customers are not that hard to deal with. My only issue was with the truck rental center with Penske.. the system needs update for effective work.

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for advancement. Pay is decent for retail. Good team atmosphere. Strong focus on diversity.

    Cons

    As a customer service company, a lot of time is spent on the sales floor and little time to do department leader responsibilities. The focus on customer service is what drew me to the company and I like their focus.

    Advice to Management

    There are lots of leadership development resources. Lots. But there is hardly any time to utilize them. They are not available outside the store intranet and you cannot come in off-hours to utilize them.
