    Pros

    The associates I work with are great. It feels like a real team here. Management listens to you and strives to help you in any way they can.

    Cons

    I would prefer a set schedule but that is difficult to do in retail. I would also like to make more money.

    Advice to Management

    I know you all work hard and I am grateful. Thanks for your support.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a friendly community. I know people who I can talk to. We try to communicate to help out our customers. Hours are for the most part pretty good

    Cons

    Many cons as a lot associate I am one of 2 loaders who are scheduled at different times. I also work as garden recovery and I have had a lot of backbreaking work to do I've been working with th home depot for a little over a year I've lifted vanities toilets, mowers, showers by myself most of the time and it has started to take a toll on my back and I've recently graduated high school. I'm still bothered as to why there is a cashier appreciation month and not a supervisor appreciation month or associate appreciation month.

    Advice to Management

    I would love to get help with loading at the very least my back has been in more pain than I would like. It really is depressing and overall sad that I cannot rely on other associates help.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They are fair with their employees as far as allowing anyone who wants to advance within the store or corporation to do so.

    Cons

    I have found the company to pay their regular employees a much lower than average hourly income than its direct competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Don't assume the potential twice a year bonuses brings the yearly overall pay to be as much or more than that of your competitors as you are still underpaying your employees.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Best supervisor I've had at any job. Most flexible job I've ever had. Hard work is mostly recognized. I've had a lot of fun working here, learned a lot too both professionally and personally.

    Cons

    Hard to find a full time spot. They aren't always willing to enforce the rules equally even when the employee doesn't meet the minimal standards.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to be more willing to enforce the rules. Workers who can't or won't get to the minimal shouldn't stay with us. Not enforcing the rules and getting rid of the bad workers makes it hard for the good workers to stay here.

    Pros

    Great company that offers 401k, long term disability, short term disability, and health insurance to their employees. All of which is easy to manage

    Cons

    Home Depot on occasion doesn't do the best job of recognizing their employees for going above and beyond unless you gloat about doing so.
