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

Pros

Homedepot invests in technology. It is a good place to work with really large volumes of data and high user concurrency solutions. You will get to learn the latest technology. Has very good executive leadership under Frank Blake. Has good core values and is involved in the community.

Cons

There may be over emphasis on time to market and meeting deadlines in some teams. Some people may not like the pace and may find it stressful.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time

    Pros

    Great training, some really great people to work with. Cool values if followed.

    Cons

    Will discount $50.00 to win a new happy customer. But are willing to lose a good employee, for less than that by either minimal pay or short cutting hours. Two dollars an hour too high after advancement, and years of faithful service. A new store manager will find a way let you go for a couple of bucks an hour.

    Advice to Management

    Your gonna lose a lot of great employees. Go back to the values that made you great. It's a shame to see great people make great companies, only to have new management move in trying increase the bottom line. Destroying the foundation( the people) that got them there!

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    * love their direction on customer service; the stuff the staff does for customers, you do not see anywhere else in other retailers
    * think their stock has been going up steadily for the past few years
    * the team and culture here is great. some became my good friends over the years
    * if you can survive here, you can survive in any big box retailer

    Cons

    * too cheap to give employees discounts
    * too cheap to give employees generous raises; raises are a joke, i think gas prices increases faster
    * bonuses are mediocre, but not for upper management
    * too cheap to higher more people; current employees are overworked
    * too cheap to give a great training program
    * unskilled, unprofessional, uneducated managers
    * the worst scheduling system i had ever seen; full timers are expected to work whatever shift they give you. no set schedules for full timers

      tips to become management:
     #1: have the managers like you
    #2: come in on time and pretend to like your work
    #3: always say yes to managers on what they want you to do, when they want you to work, what they want you to say, etc.
    o yea, i forgot to mention, you don't need to have people skills, excellent communication, and have leadership qualities (just refer to rules 1-3 above)

    Advice to Management

    Learn the words: leadership, integrity, and professionalism

    You guys are just humans just like the rest of us, be more compassionate, and don't forget where you came from....on the sales floor like the rest of us.

    If it gets any busier, trust me, your customer service ratings will suffer.
