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

Pros

Long hours and a general good co worker staff, along with humble and easy to talk to boss's helps to provide an overall good experience as an employee.

Cons

Sometimes you will often experience contractors who are in a hurry and are even bilingual and this can be a problem if you are not fluent in their language.

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

    Pros

    -The Values are just that (don't let people get in your way or keep you down)
    -Always opportunities to move up or laterally within the store or the company (take advantage)
    -Great Benefits!!!
    -Bonuses to Employees as well
    -Parties!!

    Cons

    -Raises are low (aim for higher position rather than raise)
    -Can be a competitive environment (always smile with coworkers)
    -Customers expect you to know how to build their home
    -Management can sometime seem untouchable

    Advice to Management

    -Reward those that work hard but are not able to advance
    -There is no reason an employee working for over 15 years should be making less than $20 (they know the business better than any new management coming on)


  2. "Good company that you put hard work into and you can be rewarded"

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Once you are salaried there is a good bonus structure, and even a decent bonus for store employees.

    Cons

    Once salaried you put in all sorts of time "in season" ...I averaged about 70+ hours per week. There is lots of heavy lifting as well.

    Advice to Management

    Add more salaried managers or make more department heads.
