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

    Pros

    Competitive pay.
    Overtime was optional rather than mandatory.
    Free catered lunches at least once a month, sometimes more.
    Management team tries to create a fun work environment with various events and activities, on and off the clock.

    Cons

    Fairly high turnover rate.
    High volume of work leaves little time for cross training on new machines. You may get stuck in a single function for a very long time.
    Computer network frequently had issues that would interrupt workflow.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize the cross training of employees on different machines. The training phase may temporarily hurt production, but the results of having the staff fully trained on multiple machines should help in the long run.

    As an employee you must at times cover a department that you are not familiar with due to an associate not showing up for work, and customers get frustrated because you might not be able to find the products right away.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with the supervisors and the associates at the same time so that everyone is on the same page it will make everyone feel important.

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

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Stock Options, Salary, Good People to work with and network, ESPP. Great opportunity for promotions, the good it does for the veterans, community and its employees.

    Cons

    Some changes were made with a 75K ft view mentality and it looks like no consulting of those who manage at the 40K ft level and how it impacts operations at ground level. The overall idea was goof and forward thinking but the failure was the vehicle to implement it and a poor and rushed roll out.

    Advice to Management

    What sounds good or looks good on paper still needs to be vetted. Its true that people resist change but if you include the Branch/Regional talent on the operating system (like a new scheduler) you should get some good feedback despite those giving you static. My rating on SR management reflected only one in particular. I believe the problem was identified and the issue was resolved. I have worked with some great people here, learned a lot and highly recommend them for a career. I started hourly in a store, worked my way up through different channels over 9 years. this position was my last 1-1/2 years.
