I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Lots of great folks to work with and help on a daily basis. You get to really know your customers and treat them like family.

Cons

You never get holidays off, you put in far too many hours in your store and not enough with your family. Work and life balance is difficult.

Advice to Management

Take a look at what is asked of your managers. Money is not everything to us. We have lives and we have families that should be higher up on our priority list. Bonuses are nice, don't get me wrong! But the cost we pay for the reward we receive is NOT proportional.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time

    Pros

    Teamwork, training, opportunity to advance. My experience was nothing but pleasant, I enjoyed the work environment and the people. Good pay as well.

    Cons

    Hard being a girl on the floor sometimes. Customers tend to prefer male associates even if you are knowledgeable.

    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.
