      Current Employee - Freight Associate in Indianapolis, IN

      I have been working at The Home Depot part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Kind co-workers, chances to advance, decent starting pay, chances for extra hours if you are part time.

      Cons

      Sometimes in different locations there is blatant favoritism and managers say they'll do something but never get back to you about issues

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your associates more, make things more fair, and definitely don't play favorites

      I have been working at The Home Depot part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Its nice to have a 401k, benefits, access to computers and not a whole lot of micromanaging. They accommodate all schedule limitations and requests, will pay you an extra dollar an hour if you have experience or negotiate for it. You can manage your own 401k investments and contributions. They offer employee stock at a discount. They have discounts at all kinds of places for being an employee like at gyms and car dealerships....

      Cons

      They like to have several part timers rather than full timers. on your feet all day can be rough on the cement floors. lots and lots of customer questions with minimal training. Its learn as you go and can be overwhelming.

      Advice to Management

      Offer raises after a probationary period where you recognize who is serious about their job and does a great job providing excellent customer service. The once a year raise might not cut it as what you hire in at each year also rises (so its not a raise at all). Some are hired in for more than what you pay a long standing associate.

      Pros

      none, none, none, none ,none

      Cons

      horrible communications, prepared for interview showed up 10 minutes early with copies of my resume, was more then qualified for the job, and had not problem with not being selected buy the worthless management staff didn't even have the balls to call and tell me I was not selected. I think that says everything you need to know about this company.

      Advice to Management

      grow a pair of balls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Approves of CEO

      I worked at The Home Depot full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Core Values, taking care of each other, taking care of the customer, driving business by increasing average order value. The Homer Fund is an incredible tool for taking care of the associates. Home Depot is an ethical company and works very hard to be fair to everyone.

      Cons

      Understaffing, no time for training, unrealistic time management issues, too big to be agile and responsive to customer needs. Low pay makes attracting and retaining talent impossible. There is no such thing as work/life balance. Be divorced or single.

      Advice to Management

      I don’t believe management cares what I have to say. I was treated as if I was disposable, so my advice would be discarded. Basically, you have to show up, figure it all out, juggle everything, get no positive feedback, and execute game plans with no feelings or emotions.

      I have been working at The Home Depot part-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      It's the only place I've worked that feels like family. It's the only reason I've stayed this long. I feel like the top of the company cares about their employees and tries to make incentives to keep people.

      Cons

      Management. Outdated computer systems. Equipment is "refurbished" and not always tested. It can be very upsetting when you get an item back from repair only to have it do the exact same thing. Software is often sluggish and untested thus making it hard to get simple tasks finished. Not enough help.

      Advice to Management

      Update equipment frequently, especially computers and software (invest in GOOD software).
