I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Many of the associates and management staff are friendly.

Cons

To much drama at the store level. Many of the high level Exec. Management staff are the cause of the store problems, even when a store is doing well financially. Better but, lack of consistence from higher level management staff from store-to-store.

Advice to Management

Be consistence in all things from new associates to higher level management staff. Be a roll model.

Example: management staff is scheduled in to open the store at 4:00 am, but don't make the effort to arrive to work on time and make hourly associates wait 30 minutes to an hour or more to get in to the building, Also, ensure everyone is out of the building when closing (both have happen too many times in the building I worked at on nights I was not their).

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

    Pros

    I sold wood and wood accessories.
    I can build a deck. Well I can sell the pieces to build a deck. I could build a deck I guess, I've never actually built one.

    Cons

    Retaking quizzes on how to build a deck till you pass.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers and most of the customers are awesome

    Cons

    Don't expect to have a life. You will work every holiday, every weekend and if you ask for time off it will be met with hostility. If your not one of managements favorites than get comfortable because you will never move up and they will threaten you even if you do your job. I was an employee for over 5 years and nothing was ever good enough for them. Don't believe the positive reviews its just from HR.
