    I worked at The Home Depot (More than a year)

    Pros

    good management. They were very understanding and accommodating. Good opportunity to move up. My co workers were very nice and kind to me. I like home depot.

    Cons

    bad hours. Some of the employees were very mean and nasty. A guy that worked in the paint section smelled like he just ate a dead cat.

    Advice to Management

    My advise to the management at the home depot would be to keep on doing whatever they are doing and such.

    Pros

    Good benefits, supportive large family camaraderie.

    Cons

    Low pay, constantly changing schedules, fast-paced, high-pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade your computer networks. What you are saving in IT, you are losing many times over in lost associate productivity resulting in unnecessary hours worked.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good bonus and stock option. When your liked your treated very well. Lots of good fellow employees make it worth while. Pays better than the other retailers i worked for previously. Vacation pay for salaried employees is good too.

    Cons

    Long hours as expected in retail management. It does not allow for work life balance. Sadly no one has your back unless your in the group or are winning team. District team covers their tracks and offers no help only tells you what you have done wrong. Be ready for the District manage to make a examples out of you in front of your colleagues and customers. Very long work hours and 6 day weeks every spring and inventory months. Your store will vary by what store manager you have and if they want to help you not get trouble with the boss. The company values do not apply to you if your an asm.

    Advice to Management

    You should make the district team do their jobs. They show up and just point out whats wrong. When things are good they sit and talk nice to you. They do not train us managers or offer help. It seems there is an agenda to terminate managers before bonus time. The lp team gets people fired people for helping customers? The HRs in many districts came from the same company as the RHRM. That really allowed? I worked in D278 and you should check on what they are not doing, i think you would be surprised. But please dont take it out on the store. Lots of good people working in your stores there.

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

    Pros

    They hire some hard working people. We also get several bonus checks a year that depend how how your individual store does. If your are part-time they will work around your schedule mostly.

    Cons

    They promote some people to store manager who are not the best fit. Also their part-time health insurance is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop spitting on the little guys. The department heads make the store run and they are treated like crap most of the time.
