    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best part of working there was the team, and the hours, 5am to 1:30 pm mon-friday.
    The pay was decent and management too.

    Cons

    It's a bit of a dirty job! My hands we constantly dry and shirt dusty. Plus during winter it can get a little chilly, especially working outside or by the door.

    Advice to Management

    Better utilise associates abilities, and remember it's just a job!

    Pros

    Your fellow staff members will really help you get through the day, things like homer awards and company parties make you feel more valued.

    Cons

    Management is known for picking favorites, training is very sparse and far between and there isn't a lot of guidance, customers will be rude and try and return things that are obviously stolen or damaged and you still have to take them back.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Named Employee of the Year in 1993 won numerous awards throughout my years there. I enjoyed working there, very good company, I wouldn't mind working there again. I have disciplined myself to correct my mistakes and have moved forward.

    Cons

    My fault for getting myself fired. I said something they didn't like. I should have kept my mouth shut. I was stressing out without any backup.

    Advice to Management

    I love motivating young employees, I have had my own business, managed a business and worked for Home Depot for nearly 17 years. I would love to teach young employees what to expect and what not to do. I learned my lesson well

    During slow business periods working hours are cut. During really hard economic times, there is always a danger of being laid off.

    Meritorious ideas coming from associates should be given consideration and possibly adopted for operational implementation. Personnel issues should be communicated beforehand to associates before implementing action.
