    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Management Pay, Stocks, Bonus, Charity programs

    Cons

    Extreme low pay for the associates interacting with the customers. Home depot has a vision to provide better customer service than anyone else. That's laughable. These folks making $10 per hour to take people's s**t don't give a damn about the brand. Home Depot's installation structure creates unnecessary stress to the employees having to deal with disgruntled installation customers. Home Depot can be a great career, Just understand there will be stressful interactions with customers in all areas on a regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the associates that interact with customers. Doesn't take much $$$ to build loyalty.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    -401k
    - average heath insurance for full-timers
    - profit sharing
    - decent computer training

    Cons

    - targets employees for firing at 10+ years, often using fraudulent or fabricated reasons and not allowing terminees to confront alleged accusers
    - abuses salaried management
    - forces performance evaluations to be written by hourly employees as salaried management wants then
    - classifies hourly supervisors as management, just like Walmart, in which the NLRB will not represent them,creating a scapegoat for salaried management
    - does not equally enforce company policies; some people are charged with wrongdoing(often falsely; while others are allowed to say and do anything)
    - does not treat people equally even 2 associates who have the same disability

    Advice to Management

    You are not living up to the core values the founders laid down. The founders shoul have a hsake up in the management team

    Pros

    Active, varied day and worked with and developed some great people.

    Cons

    Poor leadership by the DM caused several key management personnel, including the SM, to move on to other retailers AFTER we'd all made our annual bonus.

    Pros

    I will always respect the way Home Depot has stood by me through some really tuff times. Home Depot has A lot of great opportunity if you are moderated to advance your shelf.

    Cons

    The health plan is very expensive, communication is poor within any store could be really bad with different managers and that is always frustrating. You have to be able to multi task on the fly.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to advance associates they have always been steady and reliable we forget that even if they don't ask to be promoted- some times they may need a push in the right direction .

    Pros

    Great environment, fast paced, values based company, bonuses for company and stores success, ability to grow career with the company from within

    Cons

    Interacting with different types of people on a daily basis, brings it's own set of challenges, not only with the customers but your fellow associates ad well

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote from within. It's very reassuring to know that a lot of our senior leadership, started out as hourly associates.
