    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Treat you better than other big box stores, but it's still retail.
    Closed on Holidays, but will probably change in coming years.
    Customers really are put first, to the point of practically giving away stuff just to retain customer trust-- doesn't always happen though.
    Success Sharing.

    Cons

    Retail.
    Friendliness among associates, but not so much with management (possibly just my store).
    Pay isn't comparable to work done.

    Advice to Management

    Know your people and their skills-- put them in positions where they can use them.
    Advice to executive team and CEO-- update your tech. It's hard to do our jobs with tech that's at least ten years old. Spend a little money on your employees so they can make more money for the company (not that we'll see it in our base pay anyway).

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    All of the standard Fortune 500 company benefits apply. The company culture is strong. Good diversity.

    Cons

    Retail brick & mortar stores are being negatively impacted by e-commerce. There is always a drive to reduce costs and improve profits by the stockholders. Labor costs go down on the quarterly and annual reports, but the work still has to get done so jobs are outsourced. In the end, operating costs just get shifted from the 'Labor' line to the "Vendor" line.
