    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.

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

    Pros

    You work with lots of different people and therefore learn many things, you get great opportunities for advancement very good pay and benefits .

    Cons

    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.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible times, nice associates, my supervisors made sure i had everything i needed to do my job well.

    Cons

    Had next to no person to person training, no team meetings so me and my associates would never be on the same page, it's terrible walkie talkies never seemed to be working so communication with lumber, garden or the front to see if they need a hand was awful. Due to the lack of proper training i've seem to be always be doing something wrong even if I thought at the time I was doing something nice so i end up getting bad image to peers and to superior and it makes me feel shameful.

    Advice to Management

    Do a proper job training to your new associates right when they get in and have actually have them work with someone for like their first month of their employment so they will have less hiccups in the future, i wish a hand a mentor in the beginning of my employment because i feel like if i did have one i wouldn't be so stressed all the time thinking if im doing enough or not enough.
