    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Heath Insurance, pay to much for it. Guarantee 40hrs.

    Cons

    No set schedule, very low wages, moral is very low. Management is never on the same page. They give you duties that is impossible to finish in one shift. Never says you doing great job, when I get more positive feedback from customers then anyone in the store. I received the highest award the company. Takes at lest three years to move to next level.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees set schedules, promote exceling employees faster. Make the employees feel, not just a number.

    Pros

    Family Atmosphere, Great Pay, Good Benefits

    Cons

    This Company makes you feel like you have to sale there Credit Cards, Management constantly comes to you letting you know how many they need for the week.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your Customers to decide if they want a card with you, and don't put a bunch of pressure on your Cashiers, it's the reason you have a high turnover rate.
