    Pros

    Enjoyed running the paint department. Keeping it stocked and looking neat and organized. I love helping customers. Working with associates.

    Cons

    Near the end management changes became just too much. Too much politics were involved and it was not fun to work there anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your team . They will get you the answers you need. They always did before.

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

    Pros

    The home depot is a great place to get a quick seasonal job.
    It advances hard workers.
    It recognizes workers for hard work with awards.

    Cons

    I earned three homer awards in the span of 2 months. They did not document one of the awards so I never received my bonus. Also I was promised a $100 bonus for every time I learned about a new department; however, when I went to accept the offer during a slow season they pulled that offer.

    Advice to Management

    Multiple managers over one department is very ineffective. Also, MET doesn't know anything about what products actually are of best interest to our customers.

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

    Pros

    The customers are friendly. By and large, so are the non-management employees. However, like any place, there are cliques. The insurance is great if you are management, garbage if you are part time. Pay is FANTASTIC if you are in management, but just a hair above min, wage if you are not. Management gets wonderful days off, multiple hour lunch breaks, and some even nap in their cars during working hours without danger of censure. And some entertain a romantic interlude during work hours...now that's entertainment!!!

    Cons

    Terrible insurance, the training consists of watching online "how-to's," the pay is awful for anyone under the rank of supervisor, the hours are scheduled in a fashion that keeps the store running with a min amount of staff. There are huge "blind spots." I have personally witnessed lower level bosses curse or talk in obscenity-laden language in front of customers, with no corrections made. There seems to be no interoffice respect, unless you are best friends with the managers. The HR's main job seems to consist of hanging up posters and decorating the break room, with the occasional training class for new hires. Scheduling is haphazard.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of worrying about your damn kick backs from the company, why not hire to capacity and LIVE the so-called company motto by putting the customers first. None of the departments have adequate coverage. Meanwhile, the common workers live on food stamps and drive 20 year old cars because working 30 hours a week might eat into HR's Lexus payments. And how about actually reading someone's resume before placing them in positions that are really not focused on their strengths.

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

    Pros

    Having a job was a Pro.

    Cons

    Some of Management treated employees like trash. My supervisor was called stupid in front of me and customers. Employees were not respected and not allowed to get the fully trained before being pushed out on the floor. Management behaved totally different when the higher up big wigs visited. Not enough hours to really call this a job.

    Advice to Management

    Employees make the company the money. Management should be monitored at that particular store.

    Pros

    The Home Depot has a very competitive pay and compensation package. The company does a good job of reaching out to the community and being a part of that community. The core of the company is made up of a group of people that truly care and work hard.

    Cons

    The company is to focused on looking good and being perceived well; which in return makes them come off as half hearted and insincere. The company also lacks the ability to find the strengths of individuals and to incorporate those skills and talents to better the company.

    Advice to Management

    The upper management is out of touch with the common person (reality of the working person). The company at this time is looking for a single style of manager/leader (yes leaders) and one must march, do, act, and speak as directed. Filling one side of the boat will slow if down and in the longrun sink your ship.
