    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was a very professional place to work and they were pretty flexible with hours and the pay wasn't bad for what it was.

    Cons

    Micro-management can be an issue with some of the higher ups. Its retail and all the retail problems come along with it.

    Advice to Management

    If your employees are doing a good job and are working hard, give them some space. If there is a deadbeat working for you, even if its a pain to deal with, make them suffer because you not making them kick rocks destroys morale of all the hard working employees especially if you try and use a nice guy approach.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Convenient Locations based on where you live.

    Cons

    The most unorganized company I have ever worked for. This relates to more than just one particular store. Some Mgrs. know less than non Mgmt. and have you perform their actual job duties while they play on company devices and cell phones.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize employees that have appropriate Mgmt. skills and advance them accordingly. It should not be primarily based on a "Buddy System."

    Pros

    This company has great salaries and benefits. People who work hard are rewarded and there is plenty of room for promotion.

    Cons

    As a hourly associate, the opportunity for overtime is rare. As a manager, the opportunity for "overtime" is all you want. There is the occasional situation where you question the 'the customer is always right' scenario.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I have for management is to keep up the good work. Stocks are up and it is a result of in stock products and efficient operational routines.

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

    Pros

    Ability to make your own schedule a month in advance. Ability to travel from store to store when...your boss allows it.

    Cons

    The Lack of pay for what is expected. They tend to give the bare minimum for raises. Since the new AP restructure there is no room for advancement, and no more handcuffs.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your AP team to work the stores with the most activity

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

    Pros

    decent pay, helpful co-workers for the most part, great for those who love to challenge themselves, multi-task, and problem solve

    Cons

    little staff for sales floors, may encounter cross training within other departments only for coverage purposes, management over looks issues from lower level and focuses more on overall sales, work schedules for the week are not consistent with an individual availabilty

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to a least make some sort of effort or compromise to help insure that you are listening to the NEEDS of both the customers and employees in order to implement better ways of growing the company to meet all goals
