    Pros

    The company culture is good, but a lot can depend on your specific store manager. Various departments allows for growth and learning. They often promote from within.

    Cons

    It can be a bit of a dirty, dangerous job (depending on your department). The raise from floor associate to department head is not worth the extra headaches.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees based on value. Department heads should make substantially more than sales associates, given their extra responsibilities.

    I have been working at The Home Depot

    Pros

    Home Depot is the best retailer out there. Although no employer is perfect, I find my job to be both challenging and rewarding and the pay and benefits beat out the competition.

    Cons

    Management could be more involved in the nuts and bolts of the operation.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little less concerned about numbers and a little more concerned about processes. It is the execution of processes that translate into better customer service.

    I worked at The Home Depot

    Pros

    Great place to learn about how to accomplish home improvement projects yourself.

    Cons

    Store management staff lacks leadership ability. Bases many personnel decisions on popularity rather than performance. Lack of proper business ethics displayed by a number of store mangers and human resource managers (when they where in store). Store management rarely shows an interest in helping you build a career, unless you are a "favorite", and that includes engaging in improper conduct between management and associates.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the way of business that made the company successful. The Nardelli years nearly killed the entreprenurial spirit that the company was formed on. The closing of all of the "sister" stores is a good start. Pay more attention to what is going on in store. Make surprise visits, don't call ahead of time in order to receive the "dog and pony" show that is made to stroke your ego. The stores are operated and appear...

    I worked at The Home Depot

    Pros

    *Great access to people with industry knowledge *Good opportunities to learn about products, methods, etc. *Many opportunities available to gorw with the company

    Cons

    *compensation was low for the level of skill necessary to be effective in making product or service sales/recommendations *health insurance was too expensive

    Advice to Management

    When I left, the company was making great efforts to reward those who continued to learn skills outside of their own departments. I hope these programs are still in place.
