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

Pros

Camraderie, neighbors helping neighbors, access to new & useful products . .

Cons

Grinding politics, ignorant customers, & schedules

Advice to Management

Get out of the office, get out onto the floor & show these kids how to set an endcap, make a wingstack, reset a bay . . . be the merchandising sales guy, not another beancounter.

    Pros

    there are opportunities for people to move up or around within the company. training in the home improvement industry is terrific. employees learn from other associates and especially customers about different trades. experience gained is priceless

    Cons

    crazy schedule. hours are cut at christmas, but increase towards feb/march. management could be better trained to supervise. upper management needs to learn more leadership skills and less management skills

    Advice to Management

    listen to employees, treat them like humans, not just part of the bottom line. People are your greatest asset.
