Approves of CEO

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

Pros

You will receive a variety of tasks. You will encounter all kinds of customers. You can gain immense product knowledge & share a multitude of learning experiences. I like the way Home Depot attempts to run their business. The plan is very good but sometimes execution can get in the way. I learned bunches from this company. The support i received from associates was incredible.

Cons

The only downside i have is that I have failed to advance in my career. I have been employed there 6 months. I have 30 + years of retail & supervisory experience. My store mgr & asm keep saying in the Sunday meetings'" we are a great place to have career advancement, you can grow as much as you want" . Well,I applied for full time work after 2 months--no luck. I applied for career development with management training questionaire with my store mgr and human resources...no reply... FWIW... i achieved 4 homer awards and a bronze award in 5 1/2 monthes

Advice to Management

I like your approach to the customer. Your benefit package is well considering the diversity of your workforce & this challenging economy. I will miss working working at 0813. Thank you for the opportunities to gain more personal & professional development.
