    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Bonus can be up to 25% of annual salary twice per year, Coworkers are good peopl, get to work with your hands

    Cons

    Store Hours are long but typical of big box retail (60-70/week), not family friendly for management , talent and effort doesn't lead to promotions more so how politically savvy you are

    Pros

    Room to grow. Excellent Training. Management was always very supportive and a great help. Dealing with builders and contractors and great benefits.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours are not always what you want, and it gets really hot in the summer time. Retail is not always fun.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates more. A lot of times they have legitimate concerns and they need your help.

    Pros

    Lots of good folks in the store.

    Cons

    The past couple of managers for our store have had some major failings, but we are a not for proffit store, so i'm sure we get the bad ones.

    Advice to Management

    Better job of picking store managers, and this would be a great place to work.

    Pros

    Endless job opportunities. Good salary for position. Lots of stores to work in. Technology is good. Company recognition of people on floor. Abiltiy to help people with finishing their home. Seeing new appliances and other gadgets that have yet to hit the market. Training is good, willing to fly you to a location to meet other managers.

    Cons

    Long hours, poor recognition from senior leaders. Frequent relocation if wanting to move up. Always on the hot seat. Poor increases in salary. Time off is hard to get in a leadership role. Good ole boy network exists everywhere. Very hard to break from tradition. Customers get really irritated when mistakes are made.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the positives too.
