    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.

    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.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are not many if any

    Cons

    Low pay. Hours are horrible, open close, close open, can't have a life. Half the time they will not approve vacation which makes it very tough if you have already paid. Depot says employees come first and that is just a slogan with no back bone.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay. Better hours or scheduling. Quit hiring outside of the company. Have seen people work for years, then left, wanting to get into management only to be overlooked by walmart employees who do not know the idea behind depot. Take care of employees and not just blow smoke.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work around my personal schedule; Provides a service that can be very helpful to our customers; great healthcare benefits; pays semi-yearly bonuses, if sales goals are met by every department in the company. Offers profit sharing stocks.

    Cons

    Having to use personal car for job site visits; compensation is not all that great but it has improved somewhat in the last year. Mileage is based upon a set reimbursement rate and not an IRS established rate per mile.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees as much as you take care of your customers. Don't take people for granted; if an employee has a special or unique business revenue growth idea or talent - utilize it then, don't ignore it!
