    Employees can move upwards and create a long term career.
    Lots of team building
    Continuous training

    Cons

    Standing / working / moving on the concrete floor for long periods.
    Few weekends off

    Advice to Management

    Rotate weekends off so employees can spend time with families. Not everyone wants to "bleed orange".

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not a lot of physical work. Lot of time to get familiar with your job and to learn it.

    Cons

    A customer may come along and will (1) want to design a window, maybe a particularly difficult one such as a "garden window" and want it install as well. Until you're very familiar with all this you'll sweat it some.

    Advice to Management

    It is very important that people learn the store system. Before leaving I was flowcharting it in order to make it easier for people to learn it.

    Be loyal to loyal employees.

    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.
