    I worked at The Home Depot as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture!! Everyone was uplifting and did not experience any negativity. Very easy to network and find mentors.
    One of the best retail companies with rising comps
    They take their value wheel seriously
    It's easy if you want to transfer to a different department

    Cons

    Honestly depends on what kind of project you're given

    Advice to Management

    Have a more detailed application and description of job role in interviews
    Make sure merchandising interns have a well-rounded experience and are busy

    Pros

    THD really cares about their associates! It is amazing how almost all the senior management has a great attitude about their direct reports and are ready to help me develop and reach my career goals.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any cons... I guess they could offer a better health care plan, but... that's more of a problem with the US government.

    Advice to Management

    Great job!

    I worked at The Home Depot as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people at Home Depot are all super friendly and down to earth. As an intern, I got an interesting project in ML, and I really enjoyed the team I worked on. The Store Support Center (their headquarters) is also a really nice, and while it may not be the google campus, it was a lot cooler than I was expecting. Home Depot definitely sees that if they want to attract top tech talent, they need to shift the company culture in their tech department. While I was there, everyone was very laid back, and the interns were definitely treated very well. My favorite part is that everyone seemed to really value the company culture. Definitely felt like I was part of a big team.

    Cons

    The work environment is definitely a little slow paced. As an intern, daily life wasn't exactly thrilling. While there are definitely cool things happening there, my team at the home depot seemed to just go happily at their own pace. If you're looking for inspiring innovation, this may not be the company for you. Also, I hate to say it but their salaries just can't compete with tech companies.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to really attract top tech talent, you need a bigger draw for people to come and live in Atlanta, or you need tech offices in other cities. For me, it would be difficult to take a job in Atlanta over one in NY or seattle or SF that pays more.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong entrepreneurial environment. Great blend of innovation and stability. Centralized UX department. Good Benefits and rewards programs. Does live their values o caring for their people

    Cons

    UX would like more creativity and autonomy . Decentralized PMO department has diminished authority of the group Some of the tools are not as effective as leadership projects them to be.

    Advice to Management

    Project tracker does not scale well across teams. Makes leadership views more difficult to compile and manage.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Survival money for medium mentality work, corporate training was excellent yet there are a lot of old school employees with the former and useless arrogant attitude,

    Cons

    Unacceptable/inconsiderate shift scheduling with no weekends or consecutive days off. Always tired with the constant shift changing due to lack of sleep or routine.

    Advice to Management

    No much, management was most of the problem, although there were a few good managers.
