Pros

The people are amazing. Everybody genuinely loves their jobs and people are very upbeat. Management listens to you and you get recognized for hard work. Throughout the company, the Store Support Center (SSC - Corporate Headquarters) is looked upon as being a great support system for the front-line associates in the stores. It's not a top down hierarchy, but an inverted pyramid company. Everybody shares information with each other and nobody is left out of the loop.

Cons

The pay is competitive, but not stellar. Entry-level positions are pretty good, but should be labeled a bit differently, due to the nature of the positions. It seems like there are too many contractors working at Home Depot. Instead of hiring new grads or experienced people full-time, THD hires a lot of contractors through recruiting firms. Even some of the recruiters are contractors.

Advice to Management

Show people that you care across the board. Make it easier for your employees to innovate and put less restrictions on new ideas. There are a lot of very entrepreneurial people working at THD and the company is missing out on some of their ideas, including recent graduates that come into the job with a completely new perspective.

    Pros

    I loved the independance that they allowed you, freedom to take customers to other departments and help them with their 'whole project' rather than just handing them off to an associate from that other department.

    Cons

    Short staffing during peak hours. Very small raises.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should be required to take classes on personality management.
