    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Top rated health benefits, stock options of 15% off, profit sharing bonus, corporate partner discounts with other companies, matching 401k

    Cons

    Internal politics of company has change with new CEO over last 2 years. Pulling away from old philosophy of hiring mature, well trained tenured associates and paying a living wage, to now just hiring for bodies and turn over is on the rise at an alarming. In some major cites as high at 300%.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The Associate Pay scale is good and the Benefits are good. I liked the hours and the way management handled customer complaints. They aalso backed up their Associates if they weren't in the wrong.

    Cons

    I would have to mention the Customers behavior's were sometimes inappropriate. The times they scheduled Store Meetings and their training procedures to me wasn't as informative as it should of been in the Specialty Departments.

    Pros

    THD is a great company with many opportunities if you are willing to put in the networking effort. The benefits are comparable to other major companies. The do a lot for the community too.

    Cons

    It's all about WHO you know that will help you to your next position and this is very well known throughout the company. Most call centers for THD are not at the Store Support Center and certainly don't get the same treatment or benefits as if you worked at the main office.
