    Motivated associates are the key to success. NO ONE wants to fail! - listen to their ideas and give them support. People do more for Praises, than Raises! Always be HONEST!

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

    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
