    Pros

    This position is great because it gives you the opportunity to creatively think outside the box and drive sales through large scale demo events. It is the perfect entry level position out of college but the company as a whole is also great for a career. There are so many different routes you can take after the EMS position (management, marketing, product management, operations, sales, etc.) which really gives you a chance to grow with this company on a professional level. Good starting pay, company truck, four day work week and gas card are all added bonuses.

    Cons

    Building relationships can be a lengthy process with Home Depot management depending on your store but once those relationships are built it makes life way easier.

    Advice to Management

    My manager was awesome! No complaints.

    Pros

    College degree completely unnecessary for this job, so if you didn't go to college, you're qualified

    You are basically a Home Depot employee - if that's for you, go for it.

    I worked at Techtronic Industries North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great experience if trying to get into sales. Will learn a lot about entry level sales, great hours 7-3:30. Possibilities to get into management if you are an exceptional employee. If you want corporate you will have to move (Charlotte, Anderson, Milwaukee) Lots of new positions. Very strong benefits, company vehicle, good culture, and great teammates on the entry level. Great training program.

    Cons

    Company preaches they care about their employees, but rarely show it unless you have connections to C-Suite . Promotions occur, but not nearly as much as they say during interviews or once in your first role. Company does not care about turnover or retention, and you are expendable no matter how long you are with the company, how loyal, or how strong you are at your job. Company is getting cheaper and cheaper on expenses and cracking down on cost savings. Was let go after 2.5 years and didn't even seem to try and make things work for me. Entry level role makes you feel like a home depot employee so locations of your stores can make a big difference in your outlook. Lucky enough to have had some great stores.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Take care of your employees and reduce turnover which makes a managers job easier, keeps talent in house, and saves cost. Company could have a team of long term employees but it seems like people leave like sand in an hourglass

    Pros

    This position is very easy with low stress.
    You get a free car.

    Cons

    You are working in a Home Depot the entire time (M-F 40hrs).
    You will work alone as a hardware associate and never interact with other TTi employees.
    If you are not passionate about power tools do not take this job.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest about the job during the interview process.
