    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.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent work environment.

    Cons

    You will be asked to manage your stores largest commercial accounts, some that spend millions of dollars a year for poverty level pay. My store has 2 of the top 5 PASA's in the district. Their sales where over 1-1/4 million dollars and they are making between $12-$14 per hour. For their hard work and massive sales numbers they were given an apron with their name embroidered.

    Advice to Management

    offer a commision structure for your PASA's

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Management Pay, Stocks, Bonus, Charity programs

    Cons

    Extreme low pay for the associates interacting with the customers. Home depot has a vision to provide better customer service than anyone else. That's laughable. These folks making $10 per hour to take people's s**t don't give a damn about the brand. Home Depot's installation structure creates unnecessary stress to the employees having to deal with disgruntled installation customers. Home Depot can be a great career, Just understand there will be stressful interactions with customers in all areas on a regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the associates that interact with customers. Doesn't take much $$$ to build loyalty.
