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

Pros

A very physical atmosphere -- most employees loose weight very quickly from lifting merchandise for customers/walking around the store all day.

The medical benefits were excellent although I believe the current benefits offered are not as good as they used to be years ago.

Cons

Pay was much too low, considering the time in which I'd been employed (over 3 yrs.). Starting pay: $9.50/hr; ending pay: $10.45/hr. (It didn't matter if employees' had a degree or not; pay was still pitiful). Employees scheduled to close one evening at 10 pm or later and open the following morning at 6 am.

Advice to Management

Need to hire Managers with some sort of higher educational background. It truly shows in the area of management and direction of employees in all departments. I worked alongside employees who had been with the company for 15+ yrs. -- their pay rate was astounding, considering its a retail-based operation. For those that started with the company in its earliest yrs., they have reaped mega financial benefits; for all others, its a means to an end until something better comes along.
