    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was thrilled to work for Home Depot as I knew it was a great company with excellent benefits. There are several benefit package options, plus a stock purchase program which is quite nice. Loved having a gym and a cafeteria with lots of food choices.

    Cons

    The place is huge and you only interact with your floor and maybe a few outsiders. My department was dissolved and I tried to apply for another position internally. The process is long and was not easy. I would have been out of a job before I could get an interview to move into another department.

    Enjoy customer service, love organization, multitasking, and honestly love working and keeping very busy. Goals daily, giving all I have and that's rewarding for me.

    When my employer retired and seeing how hard that has been on them. Elderly but they still feel like they have a lot to give.
