Disapproves of CEO

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,.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, great co-workers, great store level management.

    Cons

    Portrays a "do it yourself" persona to the public, but forces associates to push installation services on customers.

    Advice to Management

    You hire professionals, so let them do their jobs and stop micro-managing.
