I have been working at The Home Depot full-time

Pros

Pay is great, the knowledge you would gain through Home Depot can prepare you for anything. The opportunities to start from the bottom and make your way up is superb. If you're smart and dedicated you can literally guide yourself to management.

Cons

Management team not properly trained to manage. There's no loyalty to hourly associates from upper management. Communication is terrible amongst the management team. Whenever regional or V.P.s come to the store management goes crazy and starts treating employees like crap

Advice to Management

Treat your employees with respect, make sure you communicate with your fellow management team so you can be on the same page. Be mature and stop picking favorites.

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

    Pros

    Very rewarding, got awarded for customer excellence, good 401k, and stock availability.

    Cons

    Never had any hard times, it's a job, there will always be upset customers, it's how you see them, as everyday people.

    Advice to Management

    Great Job!
