    Pros

    Good company with ability to compensate their employees much better than they do. They have a detailed training program in place for new hires.

    Cons

    Low salary. Dropped health care for part timers. The computerized training program is good but but it does not translate to the floor well. There was no time for hands on training with an experienced associate.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better. Restore health care to part timers or share the savings with the employees.

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

    Pros

    Pay is decent, but you WORK for every penny. If you have no degree and are looking to work your way up in management Home Depot will teach you skill sets you didn't even know you would need. Very multifaceted retailer, worth working there for the training alone. Home Depot has a lot of great foundations such as the inverted pyramid and the core values, if they actually were implemented properly.

    Cons

    Hours vary as a key, you will regularly work until 10:30/11 a couple nights and come in at 5:00 am a couple mornings every week working pretty much every weekend. Salaried Management cycles through out the districts often, you could have a great assistant or store manager 1 month then have an arrogant condescending Micro-manager the next. But it helps you grow in your people skills in dealing with personality type you generally don't like to work with. Constant "walks" when so and so from Atlanta are in the area regularly and management gets uptight and anxious. Most people get promoted out of tenure as apposed to leadership skills.
