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

Pros

Great retail establishment, great mission (empowering people to do their own improvements, improving the living conditions of customers)

Cons

department has bad attitude, company culture seems cold, not friendly, impersonal

Advice to Management

Soft skills training, "company culture" indoctrination/initiatives, and brand management need to be going on ALL the time, perpetually. And as far as the culture goes, dust it off and really focus on EACH area of the culture wheel. Let's face it some of those areas are flat out ignored or seem to be in various pockets of the company.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Home Depot is best in class for a big box home improvement center. Great career opportunities to advance to management positions. Good benefits. Strong emphasis on taking care of customers.

    Cons

    Some areas of the corporate office operate in silos. To many sales associates are not knowledgeable about the products they are selling. Work week staffing schedules are inconsistent. Office politics are a distracting for the sales associates.

    If the managers, actually adhere to PROPER PROTOCOL AND GUIDELINES at all times, the store will be ran more efficiently.
