    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good environment, works with your schedule, room for growth in the company

    Cons

    Management is sometimes not as present as they should be

    Advice to Management

    HR more responsive to employees, promote from within, the better managers I have worked under are ones that worked their way up from the floor

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, atmosphere is fast and hard work is there for those that want it. Plenty there that get by with bare minimum.

    Cons

    Pay low and getting advancements doesn't change that. If direct boss having a bad day he/she makes yours bad by virtue of stink rolls downhill.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your uppers to ride you and stand up for your people. New district managers that harp on successful stores please learn now to fix what isnt broke.

    Pros

    The relationships you build with the associates and customers

    Cons

    Bosses don't do enough
    No accountability
    High-school like atmosphere
    Underhanded tactics
    Always asked for "little favors" that don't lead to any advancement or recognition
    Will make you work your shift then fire you

    Advice to Management

    Learn better people skills, you put too much emphasis on the numbers and not the people that help you obtain those numbers.
