I worked at The Home Depot part-time

Pros

if you go for something consistently, if you show them what you want to be, you will get it.

Cons

if you are good at what you do, you will stay doing that. if you are a lot associate and all you do i keep the lot clean, then thats where you will stay. if you want to progress, your going to need to try to get into the store and do another departments job.

Advice to Management

if you think your employ is a hard worker, try to move them up. sometimes you are limiting the potential of a very hard worker just because they are good at a easy job

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

    Pros

    My only pro was being understood by the disgruntled employees that I met. Some were just too old to look for work or thought that HD was the best thing they could get.

    Cons

    The company seems to have an unwritten rule of "If it's not my job, I'm not doing it" Try getting a PO for a supply order or onboarding a new associate, it will take well over 10 business days to get anything done. They don't value their employees and their benefits are ridiculously high! For a family to be insured, you will pay upwards of $300 per month.

    Advice to Management

    Start living the value wheel instead of talking about it. Shake up the place with new management and with those interested in valuing the hard working employees that actually follow SOP
