    Learning a lot about home improvement and home repair is always good, and This company is very supportive of Veterans. Profit sharing per quarter is also a good plus

    Customers can be Extremely Rude, Not a good work/life balance. Scheduling is something else that needs to get better ate this company

    Advice to Management

    Please keep in mind that employees are MORE than just bodies. We are actually people who have actual lives. We shouldn't live to work.

    Pros

    The best part of working at Home Depot was my fellow associates, and the regular customers that you go to know on a first name basis

    Cons

    It's retail. The hours suck, your schedule is never the same from day to day. The managers are either great, or the suck horribly. There was a ton of favoritism, and it made it hard to stay motivated or want to come to work if you weren't one of the favorites. This company also has a horrible attendance policy. Even with a doctors note, if you didn't have the sick time to cover your missed shift, it was counted against you.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of favoritism. And go back to the old school ways of dealing with attendance

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

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good and you will meet wonderful people who will feel like family. I never expected to be at Home Depot as long as I have so far, so while the pay isn't awesome, other stuff will keep you around.

    Cons

    The job itself is not super hard (merchandising), however if you get easily frustrated with large amounts of work and being understaffed, it's not for you.
    Low coverage
    Lots of work due to low associate count.
    If you don't like working overnight or having a lot of tasks to complete you won't like it.
    The pay kind of sucks as far as compared to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Be a leader, not a boss. Pay people more, it may get people to want to apply and actually stay.
