    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company cares about it's employees and share holders and strives to be #1 retailer in the world. Very smart corporate management.

    Cons

    Too many managers from the top to the stores. Messages from corporate gets filtered too much by the time it gets to the store. Too many walks and distractions. Too much focus on credit card applications and online surveys.

    Advice to Management

    Back off on walks. Declutter aisles from wingstacks and open aisles. Get back to basics and just sell. Too many distractions taking away from what we are here to do and that's taking care of each other and customers.

    Pros

    They provide great opportunity for Entry Level education for Customer Service and really try to provide a great experience for the customer base

    Cons

    This is not a lifetime career. The turnover in the Denver market is incredibly high due to unrealistic expectations and never enough coverage.

    Pros

    Exciting opportunity, great benefits, several training opportunities

    Cons

    Management had no idea what they were doing. Constant change of policy and procedure. I was not listened to at all even though I come from a professional background.

    Advice to Management

    Stop throwing programs against the wall to see if they work and then throw employees under the bus when it goes bad.

    Pros

    Amazing company.
    One of the two stores I worked at had great associates and I really enjoyed my time with them.
    For the most part I got to set my own hours.

    Cons

    From my hiring date and initial paperwork it was over 3 weeks until I started working.
    No mileage. I lived over 2 hours from the main office and when I had to travel down I was given no mileage.
    No pay for meeting hours.
    No training. The training I received initially was exactly zero. I was basically thrown into the job with no support (worked alone 2 hours from office). Overtime I was offered more training but I was given less than a 12 hour notice and was not notified by my boss but from my partner. Apparently word was that I was going to be at the training. It had been scheduled for over a week and I was given no notice of this. Again lived 2 hours from office.
    Unrealistic goals given the amount of training and support I received.
    No support from management on my end. I worked with one of the Dep Managers in the a store to try and set up events to promote my department. Very willing on the store side. When I brought all of my ideas and plans to my boss and discussed the details specifically who I was working with I was told quote "She is dead to me". This stomped any advances on that side. When I asked for promotional materials for use in the store from HDI I was told the store managers could take of that. I brought specific items to the store management and for some reason they could not find the items in their systems.
    At one store I dealt with hostile Kitchen Designers. They would actively steal leads and customers from me.
    No pay from leads generation bonuses or long delay on that pay. I worked for a HDI for a short time and not sure if they never paid bonuses or if they just took a long time. I know some of the salespersons were having minor issues with their pay occasionally.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees properly.
    Give mileage for mandatory meeting.
    Support your people with action no words.
    Foster a relationship with the stores do not use intimidation or strong-arming.
    Use a gradual increase in goal setting.
    Hire your people and let them start working.

    Pros

    Not many. Maybe empathetic co-workers suffering along you.

    Cons

    Solid "Peter Principle" environment with duplicitous management and motivation techniques.

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourselves and actually care about people instead of the corporate bottom line.
