    If someone has negative feedback...I suggest the job may not be a good fit for them!

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example. Earn the respect deserved as management by being personally accountable for your teams actions-never casting blame or shame on your associates to spare yourself, take the high road and communicate openly and honestly. Set and maintain clear boundaries, policies and performance expectations. Always look for ways to encourage, reward and motivate your team. Try to take mental notice of associates who do...

    Current Employee - Freight Team Associate 

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time

    Pros

    TQM encouraged, customer service focused. Managers encourage team work and are very supportive. Encourages ownership mentality, allows more freedom than other companies do in terms of being empowered to make decisions. Part time pay is exceptional. Good benefits

    Cons

    Work load can get overwhelming, especially in the spring. A lot of associates seem to have a problem with not being compensated for gaining equipment liscensing. It takes a certain kind of person to enjoy the chaotic moments and the ownership mentality expected of you. Not for everyone. Full time pay is mediocre (~part time pay).

    Management still see you like sheep. after a knee surgery got no call back, they told me to my Face it would hurt them business wise and I would not be able to keep my job and return afterwards. Understandable I suppose.
