Pros

home depot is a great company. it has a lot of flexiblity in terms of departments and jobs. it has good benefits for their employees. the environment is easy and fun to work.

Cons

the pay isn't going to be great if you work at home depot. if you stay there long enough you might make it to manager and that may pay better.

Advice to Management

the compnay itself is run pretty well. i have no complaints about their management and leadership. although their training programs are a bit strenuous. overall not as bad as some of the other companies

    Pros

    This is a good place to work if you want something part time to get you through school. People are nice and associates are willing to help.

    Cons

    Major disconnect between associates and management. Management promotes success sharing to associates. However associates get very little of the success sharing and the store manager gets a 10,000 bonus. Where's the incentive for the associates?

    Advice to Management

    Connect with your associates on a more personal basis. Learn to engage your employees as people instead of employees. That contributes to better morale and increased productivity.

    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.
