I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

There is nothing good to say about this company except that there is a Willy's, Starbucks, and Chick Filet close by.

Cons

No appreciation shown to employees. Promotions given based on time spent in the office and not actual work. No work life balance or flexibility regarding days off. No employee discounts (Lowes' employees get them and their prices are not more expensive than Home Depot)

Advice to Management

Start appreciating the low men on the totem pole. Give an employee discount. Be more accommodating to people for days off during the holidays. Amend the bonus structure.

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

    Pros

    If you work hard, the management leaves you alone for the most part. You will build a good friendship with the other employees.

    Cons

    You can't get merit based raises. You only get a pay raise once a year and it's only based on what job title you have, not how good you are at it.

    Advice to Management

    When you eliminate the possibility of out of sync raises, it gives the employees less to work for. You can have an awesome year in sales and see a 2% increase for a pay raise. It's not fair at all.
