    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity for growth. Team atmosphere.

    Cons

    Home Depot use to pay good. They no longer do. It cut cost by taking away employee benefits. Will start you at a very low pay.50 cent annual raise if you are an awesome employee. You will get a better raise if you leave and then apply back again to negotiate a better pay.

    Advice to Management

    If you move up in position, you might get a 50 cent or dollar raise. Department Managers who have stayed loyal to the company (Bleed orange) often make less then who they manage.

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

    Pros

    The work environment is very friendly, if you ask for hours they will be given, and they work around your school schedule

    Cons

    Needs to be better communication between manager policies and the associates since these end up resulting in customers straight yelling at employees. As well as there being little to no opportunity for wage increase.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees and be open to suggestions.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy interview process, though the onboarding process takes time

    Cons

    Annual hourly increases of 25-cents to 75-cents as one of the top product specialists (I have a 4-year degree). Odd scheduled hours, working all weekends, incapable management (too many of them), management favors their own (employee) relatives with raises and scheduling. Earned commissions not being paid out after termination, and the HR Dept said there's no way to contact the appropriate party about my commission because they do not take telephone calls and I am unable to contact them. The HR Dept took my name and number for a return call, but no one called me about this issue. After I left THD, my medical insurance was cancelled three (3) days after I left, per the HR Dept. I live in CA, and have never experienced this before--usually medical insurance (in CA) ends the last day of the month you leave the job. On top of all of this, full-time employees are required to have Long-term Disability (LTD) and are forced to pay for it out of their paychecks. The in-house Payroll Department deducted about $6.00 a week out of my paycheck. With the low pay at THD, this is very disheartening.

    Advice to Management

    I know once in 2017, THD employees received a one-time bonus, depending upon how many years of work service they had given THD. Since I had been at THD for just under two (2) years, I received $200.00, minus $125.00 in Federal taxes. THD did this because of the huge Federal tax break they received, but the intention of this tax break was to raise hourly employees pay, to help them live a better financial life, and not just giving employees a one-time small bonus. The tax break refund was not intended to be put into the THD e-commerce business side, as stated by CEO Greg Linear, in an online interview. The Home Depot is living up to a bad reputation.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time

    Pros

    Freedom, Very little prospecting, good stream of leads

    Cons

    Not getting paid for mandatory meetings
    Management has high expectations but very rarely follows through with what they tell you they are going to do.
    In store hrly associates often book non qualified leads that result in a waste a lot of time for you and the customer.
    The biggest con is the price. Over 20k for a 10x10 kitchen where you can buy new with from the store for 6k including installation.
    Customers are more often than not floored by the price of the job. It is typically 3x the amount of getting new cabinetry and Counter tops.

    Advice to Management

    lower price of job. expand. Hire more installers so turn around times are lower. Give employees a base + comm so they feel good about going to trainings/meetings/workshops. Possibly charge for quotes so they are better quality leads.
    Optimize salesforce to use full potential.
    Get rid of the txt notifications and use Slack

    Steady work that isn't challenging.

    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
