I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Competitive pay, mostly relaxed corporate culture -- Customer service driven. Takes care of their people. Tons of opportunity.

Cons

The stores are always right -- even when they're wrong. It can be very touchy to suggest that we do something that isn't popular with the stores.

Advice to Management

Get rid of dead weight in the ranks. Hire the best people, retain the best people, and allow those who aren't on board to stop weighing others down.

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

    Pros

    Very good benefits and 401K match. They are the 34th largest companies in the US and not going anywhere.

    Cons

    Sales Manager is in direct control of your income. They do not pay for gas expenses or anything else for that matter. Long work days.

    Advice to Management

    Integrate a routing software into sales program to keep sales reps from driving long distances. Make sure your sales managers have ethics and morals. Make sure leads are distributed fairly and there is no favoritism.Stop using gimmicks on customers to make sales (coupons, ICOs, etc.)

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

    Pros

    40 hours a week. Sometimes you would work in teams, so I got to meet some interesting people.

    Cons

    When I first started working I didn't understand what a merchandiser did. After a couple of days I had mastered the job. In this position there wasn't a high chance of being promoted or even getting a raise. I hardly call a $0.23 for working a year a raise. You pretty much did everything store associated did, but more. We restocked, set up displays, clean, and do customer service. All this work starting at 5am, not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Higher people that can do the job,.
