    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The training was excellent for kitchen designers. My manager paid for me to get all of my certifications through the National Kitchen and Bath Association. I was very appreciative of that. They have a "COS" that takes care of all the follow-up on your orders once you sell the kitchen. This is a huge plus sense where I work now does not and I have to follow-up on every little detail of every little thing I sell. At Home Depot I could just focus on my customers and selling the kitchen as correct as I possibly could. The pay was pretty good.

    Cons

    Sometimes you are so behind in designs you cannot see straight. Also, with my background in interior design I wanted to incorporate lighting layouts and flooring and tile designs for my kitchen and bath sales but you are so overwhelmed doing kitchen after kitchen there is no time to learn all the other areas.

    Advice to Management

    Support the kitchen designers who want to join and continue their education through the NKBA. Not all manager do and that is to their own disadvantage.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Decent starting pay for those with a minimal amount of retail exerience.
    -Fun work environment on most days.
    -Great group of associates to work with.
    -Tolerable health benefits and good stock discounts and retirement plan.

    Cons

    -Management doesn't fight to increase your pay when you excel at your job.
    -No commission sales
    -Upper executive and store management are difficult to work for and very unfair.
    -Ridiculous hours but it is retail after all.

    Advice to Management

    Stop running your store like a concentration camp and lighten up a little. Your employees bust their humps for the company and shouldn't be made to feel like children. Leave the micromanaging out of your management style because all it is doing is making your emloyees miserable and afraid of being terminated for the smallest infradctions.
