    Pros

    Wonderful company to move up in as training and internal promotions are common place. Networking is very easy and beneficial.

    Cons

    Retail hours so scheduling can be difficult to deal with at first. Consistent scheduling has helped the associates but does not apply to the supervisors.

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

    Pros

    Great people! Always kept busy, customer or coworkers. You can always pick up more hours if you wanted to or not. Very like family oriented atmosphere.

    Cons

    Within management seems like the only way to get a promotion was to kiss people's behind, instead of hard working people..and for people who were buddy buddy with one another.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to hard working people than if they are just your friends,

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you love helping customers and fellow workers, you'll love working here.

    Cons

    Upper management consistently lie to you about pay to raises to promotions to daily work conditions. EX: Pay. I was told one thing and received several dollars less on my check.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie and not live out company values and core beliefs than want to hold others accountable for what you yourselves aren't willing to practice.

    Pros

    OK pay (not really). Easy but annoying.

    Cons

    Disorganization, lack of hours, rude and unprofessional management. If you're caught even so much as drawing a breath you'll be told to get busy. You must constantly appear as though you're doing something . The "orange life" crap.
