    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits and that's it.

    Cons

    Everything from pay, daily routines, management, theft is ridiculous. Thieves take whatever they want and wave to you on the way out. As an Asset Protection Specialist your not allowed to stop them and they usually play the race card after they steal something to try and get you fired so it will be easier for them next time. The policies that Home Depot have are catered to theft. Everything is insured, with that being...

    Pros

    Ability to make your own schedule a month in advance. Ability to travel from store to store when...your boss allows it.

    Cons

    The Lack of pay for what is expected. They tend to give the bare minimum for raises. Since the new AP restructure there is no room for advancement, and no more handcuffs.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your AP team to work the stores with the most activity

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good pay (especially if you have experience), surveillance on the sales floor, undercover/plain clothed, and hands-on (reasonable force).

    Cons

    CCTV is still at the Flintstones age, work alone unless your store is a high shrink store (sometimes 2 APS'), no advancement as an asset protection manager.
