I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Amazing associates. Great bonus package and benefits.

Cons

The political games that end up getting the associates pushed to the side. All levels of management even district level must remember the companies core values and code of conduct and not bend them to suit their needs.

Advice to Management

Take care of your people, follow the core values and the code of conduct.
