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

    Pros

    Steady work that isn't challenging.

    Cons

    There's no commission for lead generation, if I had made 1% of the sales I would have taken home an extra 15k a year which would have been huge

    Pros

    Good people, good hours, benfits include 401k and insurance, & discounted stocks

    Cons

    Management falls short, favoritism limits how high you go in business, used as a task force for management when something needs to be done because they’d rather not do things themselves

    Advice to Management

    Leave order pullers to pull their orders

    Pros

    The people you meet working there is awsome. You creat bonds and friendships with your coworkers.

    Cons

    Raises are a joke. Unrealistic expectations

    Advice to Management

    Supervisors should not be scheduled as part as department coverage. With the amount of work required by supervisors there is not enough hours in a shift to be the supervisor and the associate.

    I worked at The Home Depot (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Never had I've never been belittled my entire life until then you get the worst pay the worst shift the worst everything I was there for 3 years got no promotion and no raise lies lies lies promises and a bunch of BS nobody knew anything about construction except two people not including myself so that makes three of us we got treated like you know what a big pile. Management was racist if you had light skin you didn't get anything did it matter what race or Creed you were if you had light skin you were treated like you know what big old pile yep

    Cons

    Cuz that's what they are and management all cons CEO you are the worst you ruined Home Depot and what it's all about having the people there that know what they're talking about and really 20 years plussing in the fields of construction not some kid out of high school you should be thrown out of your chair into the news Stone by the city and buy everybody you ruined it you go to Home Depot now you might as well just shoot yourself in the foot there is no help nobody wants to do their job they don't even know where the product is. CEO Home Depot all you care about is your pocket and money because I would have been making 25 $30 an hour because of my experience which I make double now your pathetic I go to Home Depot I ask for help the kid doesn't even know where his own pin and paper are he doesn't know anything about the store nor any Department your pathetic I can't stand the people management CEO excuse of a human being you're a waste of meat if I was in charge of Home Depot it would be put back to how it was high paying people in their departments that they belong the people that didn't know anything would have the crappy hours that crappy shift because you got to learn you were seen and not heard you did your job and you did it right you worked harder than everybody around you it's pathetic all you care about is that tire on your neck when it should be a rope

    Advice to Management

    CEO and all of management you should retire and give it back to the real hard-working man of America and women let's not forget we were high paying people once long time ago now the high-paying people of Home Depot or management CEO sitting back kicking it taking everyone's money and not giving anything back. 3 years I work there I started off at minimum wage and ended at minimum wage I had 24 years experience master electrician journeyman finish carpentry Journeyman Electrician journeyman plumber journeyman painter plumber and drywaller I'm one bad sob and all my friends know it. That's why they call me when they want something done right not Home Depot
