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

Pros

Flexible for part time associates going to school. Most schedulers are willing to work with you. Room for advancement. Online training. Pretty good benefits. The company has good core values and shows it by volunteer work.

Cons

If you get stuck with a poor supervisor, career advancement can be challenging. Poor communication between management and hourly associates.

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

    Pros

    for the most part you set your own schedule, as long as you worked at least one full weekend a month and got 40 hours etc.

    Cons

    Nothing bad happened to me but that is uncommon. Fights can happen twice a week, and the better you are the more you fight and the more you are at risk for injury. Every apprehension is not a fight however it could be. The pay is not worth the risk of injury.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the Loss Prevention Specialist more, they make million dollar decisions everyday. (possible lawsuits)

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some good coworkers left, close to home, some good managers left

    Cons

    Continually cutting hours, increasing responsibility and making it impossible to achieve goals which raise pay.

    Advice to Management

    When I started at this store we had a good manager and a good team. People were dedicated to customer service. I had the tools to do my job and felt valued for the most part. But the culture has changed. Now it's squeeze, squeeze, squeeze. Home Depot adopted Walmart's scheduling strategy where everyone must be "fully flexible," Everyone works all hours and weekends. And getting the same days of the week off is impossible. How do you plan your life this way?

    Now they are cutting more positions to part-time from full-time and they have cut all benefits to part-timers. All this while the stock price and executive salaries are climbing. Really? Seriously? How much is enough?

    Learn from Walmart's mistakes instead of copying their failed human resources policies from a few years ago. Your people WERE your strength. Don't ruin it.
