      Approves of CEO

      I worked at The Home Depot for more than 2 years

      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.

      Good benefits, supportive large family camaraderie.

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

      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 for more than 6 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...

      Advice to Management

That really allowed? I worked...
