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

Pros

good coworkers, easy environment, can be fun if you are a people person. Management does appear to want their employees to succeed.

Cons

low salary, some customer's expectations about various employee's "handy man" skills are unrealistic. If a plumber was licensed, he wouldn't be working at HD for $10/hr, same for an electrician or master carpenter.

Advice to Management

increase basic salaries instead of trying to motivate with small cash awards, You must pay the employee more as their job skills increase or they will take their new abilities somewhere else.

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

    Pros

    OK pay, sometimes other employees make it bearable.

    Cons

    You are nothing but a payed slave, working conditions are questionable, upper management does not listen to suggestions, you are their slave as long as you are there, become too good at what you do, they wont promote you or move you into another department,
