    Pros

    Good benefits, ESPP, 401k, fast-paced environment

    Cons

    Often have associates they are "grooming" to take over a position but they say positions and advancement are open to all, revolving door hiring policy - once a manager was fed up with an employee, rather than following accountability procedures, they would often just want to fire the employee because there were another x amount of people who were waiting to get their first job.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more energy on your employees and their growth instead of just doing what is most convenient for your departments

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

    Pros

    -Not a bad cashier position if you don't mind checking out larger merchandise
    -Easy and thorough paid training
    -Friendly and professional environment (most of the time)
    -Good place to start in a home depot store if you're looking to get into another department

    Cons

    -You have to depend on other departments (locksmith, lumber, etc) for customer assistance that are far too unreliable, and customers get upset with you
    -Management always pushing cashiers to open credit lines
    -long gaps of time with no traffic (boring)

    Advice to Management

    Cashiers are swamped with too much responsibility: getting in touch with every department, satisfying customer checkouts with large merchandise often times and stressed to keep pitching credit lines (just to name three general examples). The front end needs more help with managing so many tasks

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

    Pros

    Employee focus is good , many benefits including tuition reimbursement , health insurance, healthy living bonus, profit sharing, merit raises, and trained management. Very integrated and inclusive work force and generally well rounded and safe and happy environment. But, it can be fast paced and it is retail customer facing large box retailer.

    Cons

    Very large place, I walk sometimes 6 miles or more during a shift. There are some heavy items to lift on occasion as this is a home improvement warehouse , but they are keen on safety and team work and it is retail , they expect sales skills for which there is no commissions paid. It is just hourly with a shared store bonus every quarter. Unfortunately as in any very large company, sometimes decisions are made far away affecting the physical plant without an understanding of how negatively the outcomes of those decisions will impact the sales floor. And o course, they don;t just make a decision for 1 store but for many, then when they roll out the change all of a sudden the impact becomes apparent, but wow, now they have a warehouse full of "setup" that is going to have a significantly more negative effect than the positive result they anticipated.....

    Advice to Management

    build a template or model first, or even assemble a prototype and test the change in one or two place before moving on the reset.
