    Pros

    Benifits are great. I excelled in my position but not in the politics which taught me a lot for the future.

    Cons

    advancement potential if you are a go getter, you might want to take it slow and kiss some well you know

    Advice to Management

    Reward people that make you successful instead of encouraging them to find other employment

    Pros

    Making strong friendships with other fellow associates.

    Cons

    The company does not pick qualified managers/supervisors. The biggest concern for Home Depot is the bottom line, which means running the store on extremely low coverage and expecting associates to give 110% everyday. The Home Depot has no HR in each store, so associate issues are never dealt with straight on, and are constantly swept under the rug. Stores are known for having soap opera drama, with everyone, including managers/supervisors gossiping about everyone else. There is favoritism, especially among managers. Associates are constantly thrown into departments with no training and expected to be able to answer customers questions. Overall, managers are very distant and uncaring.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to work and listen to the employees. Without them the store wouldn't be running and your wallets wouldn't be growing!
