    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There store has great benefits including health, dental, vision, 401K, life insurances and many more options. College reimbursement for tuitions (dependent on which school) and textbooks.

    Cons

    Little promotional opportunities, weak management, terrible pay advancement (all workers despite actual work effort get the same raise). Upper management fails to effectively motivate workers to achieve goals and fails to take responsibility for their own mistakes, often blaming the lowest man on the totem pole for mistakes they are obligated to recognize as a "trained and specialized" individuals

    Advice to Management

    Look out for knowledgeable and hard working associates. Recognize work imbalances and end favoritism within the workplace. Good workers are over looked based on biased decisions
