    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, bonuses, diverse, innovative, incusive

    Cons

    Employees ho complain about being short staffed-usually the reason short staffed because they don’t take coming to work seriously. Why get a job if you’re not going to work?

    Advice to Management

    Keep weeding through the crappy people.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Good career, ability to advance, good pay. They do care about their employees well being. Every employee in the store gets a bonus when the store profits. There value their customers and customers opinion of the store.

    Cons

    Good career, long hours, no work life balance. Expected to run the store alone or with only one key carriers at times. Often short staffed and easily will fire you if a mistake happens on your watch.

    Advice to Management

    Pair with ASDS when writing schedules and don't let them just tell you what the stores scheduling needs are. Less room for error and firing good employees that way.

    Easy atmosphere, working with the public, no one looking over your shoulder like an office atmosphere

    Cons

    salary, medical insurance cost is outrageous and almost unattainable with the salary that they pay

    Advice to Management

    find insurance that the cost doesnt put the employees in the poverty level and the raises that are given do not keep up with the increase in insurance premium every year

    Advice to Management

    Promote based on ability, not how many years you can survive in poverty as an entry level employee.
