    I worked at The Home Depot part-time

    Pros

    The people are all friendly, and helpful. One even made us up Cheat Sheets which listed the items and what isle they would be on.

    Cons

    When you have no customers, you are expected to stand out front of the register and greet every person who walks by, even if they have already been hailed. Some customers ended up feeling very frustrated by our efforts to help them. Management doesn't understand that people who walk by doesn't mean that they want help. Too many bosses when they have rotating front end supervisors.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It’s a job and it pays little.

    Cons

    The customers are unpleasant and the management is worse. The company abuses its employees and pays like extremely poor. I know personally many store managers and district managers making 6+ figures a year. Imagine what their bosses are making for the little work they do. Contractors should stop shopping here. Been with the company for over ten years and it’s so bad I have debated suicide.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more. Respect them and treat them as people. Just because you are a manager doesn’t mean you are a better human.

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

    Pros

    I would in lumber as an Sales Associate. I think the compensation is too low but I am learning a tremendous amount and I have the opportunity to learn from co-workers in other departments. Its a pretty good start job.

    Cons

    Our store management is falling apart and and the ASMs said they are looking for other jobs. I heard one say that most of the SM and ASMs in our district (D253) want to quit because the new leadership is incompetent and is very vengeful and doesn't know what he is doing. Its making our jobs hard

    Advice to Management

    I think they should look into this (this may be a repost - I don't think I did it right the first time).

    Pros

    Very Friendly, Everyone wants to teach you new things about products etc... pretty fun place

    Cons

    Gets boring sometimes, mostly a teen job, takes average of two years to get full time, a lot of employees at my store were drunk on the job or high.

    Pros

    Depending on the store you land with, the management team can be great. During a mountain fire HD paid for my timed missed. If you do great work they will take care of you.

    Cons

    It's retail... customers are your biggest cons sometimes.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities, good benefits for full timers. If you do more than what is expected and have good work ethics you can go far.

    Cons

    High turnover in management, stores churn thru ASMS and Store Managers like crazy. Employee turnover seems high also especially with the part timers. Working for Depot is not for everyone. Must conform to the Many rules and if you don't comply, good by to you.

  8. "Good job, not very stressful."

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

    Pros

    The company seems to really care about their employees and they have a great business model where much of your day revolves simply around seeking out customers to help. They also often had weekly employee appreciation events, like cooking breakfast in store for the employees.

    Cons

    There was one bad manager out of the five there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the employee appreciation events! It really helps keep up morale in the store.

    Pros

    Flexible Hours and positions.
    Learn a lot in different places.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible. They will look for and fire you if you talk out about management or their policies. If you do decided to work here keep your head down and ignore the open door policy it doesn't exist.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to push out associates that care and want to take care of customers when you play your games

    Pros

    This is a store with amazing customers. Helping people who are excited about their projects is a real pleasure. There are very few rude or angry encounters. The training is excellent and even includes a bi-lingual book to help translate the names of products and services.

    Cons

    The first time I worked for Home Depot was in the 90's. I kept my apron, decorated it and sewed on all my awards, patches and pins. I could wash it frequently. Because of loss prevention the aprons became disposable..... which made me sad. But if this is my biggest complaint then you know the company takes care of business.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be a little more flexible with scheduling for students and adults with FT jobs. Lower turnover with more hands on experience and cross training for employees who want to work in more than one area or move up to management. If cross training had been offered and promoting done from within I would still be there, because I have loved your store and your products my whole life.
