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

    Pros

    Company culture and opportunity to grow, while the company is leading the industry. Very profitable and the success is from outages adding management by its senior leadership team.
    This is a merchandise focused company that will continue to deliver results and beat its competition

    Cons

    The company has developed a strong political based environment that is being driven by finance based associates that have little to no experience in a merchandising based company. Work life balance is at times a problem as resources are never evenly distributed to get the job done and the level of accountability varies across many departments and work groups

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Home Depot is a solid retail opportunity. Special Service can get to be intense. I feel the position is greatly under paid for the amount of work required.

    Cons

    Retail Hours & Low Pay

    Advice to Management

    Often the lines of job responsibility vs pay are out of line. Stores are quick to pile on work without an increase in income.
