    Pros

    I started our as Seasonal Employee, but expressed my desire to get into management to Supervision. In time with shown ability, the positions were made available to me.

    Cons

    Large organization that is retail sales and not professional by any means.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for all. Better than Lowes or Wal-Mart.

    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.

    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.
