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

    Pros

    Great Company Morale, Paid Holidays, Vacation and PTO, great medical benefits, employee discount perks with other businesses, success sharing twice a year, there’s also great opportunities for growth and development. The managers are very open to feedback and will usually take it into consideration to make changes as needed. Home Depot takes very good care of their employees. Associates are empowered to assist their customers and make decisions without always needing permission from leadership First. They are always implementing new Ideas to make the work-Life balance easier. Family festivals, Christmas parties, prize give Aways, pot lucks, cookouts, and holiday contests are some of the many ways they ensure great company morale! I’ll definitely recommend the Home Depot, Especially the Kennesaw Contact Center!

    Cons

    The starting pay for customer service reps could be higher considering the amount of work that’s required. Dealing with irate customers all day can be very stressful. However , the leadership team is always available to assist. Flex schedules during holidays. There really isn’t much about the cons of working at Home Depot. It’s an overall great company!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be the great servant leaders that you are ! I’ve enjoyed my time working at The Home Depot!
