    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.

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

    Pros

    People are nice
    Training for other departments (assuming you are not trying to become a designer)
    Good starting point for other better paying jobs in the industry

    Cons

    Bad pay at $11 a hour and falling behind lots of other retail giants like target quickly.
    People don't want you to cross train even after training unless it is their department.
    Everything is based on the time you join (success sharing, review, when you can move up etc.)
    They constantly under schedule people in all departments.
    Full time is hard to get and even if you get full time there is no guarantee you keep it in other departments.
    Part time does not have a set schedule making it harder for them to do their other job or school if they do one of those (likely do if part time)
    Only benefits you really take advantage of is ESPP, 401k and short and long term disability.
    They force all employees to park in the back for customer satisfaction which makes it easier for stealing.

    Advice to Management

    Start focusing on your employees more by paying better, schedule enough people and give more full time.

    Pros

    Vision & dental coverage after 90 days of starting your employment. Paydays are set for every other Friday, which means there’s only a 13 day gap in between your pay periods!

    Cons

    The hours in which your scheduled fluctuate from week to week that it makes it hard/difficult to realistically be able & budget all your finances accordingly!

    Advice to Management

    When customers are checking out at either SCO or with an actual cashier it really doesn’t matter, but if a customer selects to receive an email confirmation then the paper receipt is really not necessary at that point!

    Pros

    Great value system, promotion from within, and constant training.

    Cons

    The company will certainly get as much as possible out of you at the least possible compensation because, as is with Apple, it's the Home Depot.

    Advice to Management

    Pay fair wages, improve benefits package for salary managers, improve communication systems.

    Live your people values. Like taking care of your people, doing the right thing. I actually heard the districk manager once say that the only value that matters is creating share holder value.
