    Pros

    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

    This is a great job for new managers so that they learn what not to do.

    They have a value wheel that are professed as their values. It is a line of lies. It only looks good to customers that don’t know better.

    Pros

    You're not getting fired.
    Night shift works 4 10's
    Pay is enough to survive.
    Job covers variety of tasks.

    Cons

    You won't get promoted
    Your raises are laughable
    Met and store are separate entities, its inefficient.

    Advice to Management

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

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the "physical" part of the job at THD. Loading, unloading, moving freight to the department and setting product to plan when needed. Those that enjoy the work or who are capable of doing the work will end up being taken advantage of by those who are lazy. Can't get rid of the lazy ones unless they don't show up or break a safety rule.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes to the back stabbing that goes on in the workplace. The lazy folks will demean those who work too hard. They are A: jealous because they think that they are not capable of doing the work. B: just lazy and made to look bad by those who do the work.

    Pros

    Easy work for the most part friendly staff and funny customers. They actually do care about their employees nice break room(2 paid 15min breaks which is pretty awesome) understanding when you can’t come in or late.

    Cons

    Some staff seem racist! Scheduling is horrible! Favoritism runs the store no stepping leaders for young people to grow! Get points and sick time taken if you don’t come in. No phones on floor.short staff one day over packed the next.

    Advice to Management

    Scheduling could be done way better.
