Pros

I am listened to and appreciated for what I deliver. Compensated appropriately and understand the daily expectations of my job. The culture and passion for the business is second to none and overall a great place ot get up and take care of customers every day.

Cons

You work a lot but not sure it is a con if you are enjoying what you are doing and doing the right thing.

Advice to Management

The changes over the past couple of years to provide better service in the stores and focus back on core business are working. Stay the course, appreciate your people and the business will continue to grow back to where it has been in the past. Under the Blake leadership it feels like Home Depot again.

    Pros

    Good benefits, great culture and family of associates. Home Depot gives back to their associates but it needs to be consistent (hourly) and not based on exceeding sales plans that comp 15% from last year.

    Cons

    Inconsistent roller coaster schedule. Corporate promised one weekend a month and one Saturday and one Sunday per month. Lucky if you get a weekend off in 5 months without requesting it 2 months ahead of time. Although you may work harder that 90% of the other associates it isn't recognized or awarded with annual compensation. The raise doesn't reflect the cost of living increase per year. Schedule associates to desired times so as to create a more positive level of synergy. Like typical large corporations, it the upper tiered management that benefits the most from the hard work of the associates.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the overall performance of your associates before taking the easy way out by discharging over a work rule violation that did not offend or hurt customers or associates. Management should be recognizing associate value consistently and react quickly to such value. Some of the pressures from management encourage work rule violations.

    Pros

    Meet some great people. Both customers and employees. A lot of areas to relocate to if you needed to move.

    Cons

    Long hours, always negative feedback, nothing is EVER enough. They talk about family but don't really care about you seeing them....the job has to get done! Pay used to be great, now it is on a performance percentage scale. Must have right mix of "performers" and "improvement needed" even if you didn't.

    Advice to Management

    Get real!!! A lot of your employees bust their tails for you! It wouldn't kill you to pat them on the back and let them know you appreciate them!!!
