    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefit package for part time. Starting pay $11. Meeting new and diverse customers. Learning about the different products sold in store.

    Cons

    Limited work/personal life balance schedule. Management nick picks constantly, management show favoritism, too many chiefs not enough Indians, management tend to have employees work harder than smarter (I.e. working on the same project but told by several managements on different occasion within shift to redo it another way), no cohesiveness. Managements speak of safety but when employees try to implement safety employees don’t receive the teamwork 50% of the time. If injured head management lacks empathy.

    Advice to Management

    Improvement is needed desperately when it comes to interpersonal skills when pertains to managers/supervisors. The need of recognition of the contribution your employees make. More flexible schedule when it pertains to work/personal life balance (I.e. allow each employee to have at least 1 weekend off for family life) otherwise employee burnout.
    Stop senseless nick picking.
    Have a true open door policy, oppose to just speaking of the open door policy.
    Be fair
    Have true empathy

    Otherwise McDonough Ga HD will continue to loose GOOD employees

    Pros

    Core Values
    Great executive team
    National footprint.

    Cons

    Old IT systems
    “Ditch-to-Ditch” mentality for new initiatives
    Work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Focus funding on store selling skills, and revisiting those skills with associates, rather than measurement. You aren’t able to measure individual sales other then those on customer agreements and many associates cover multiple departments selling store skus you do not measure.

    Careful on initiatives such as diversity; managers want to satisfy the initiative and some categories of associate get left out even if best qualified.
