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

    Pros

    Excellent company culture
    Good pay compared to other companies
    Ability to travel to neighboring stores in your district & work with little supervision/ no micromanagement
    Company invests time & money into AP

    Cons

    The future for AP looks disappointing. No more undercover work. Branded t-shirts now and a strict hands off policy is enforced
    Lower morale due to not being able to physically stop thieves anymore
    No area for growth in AP

    Advice to Management

    Please bring back our hands on policy and undercover operations. It’s so much harder to catch when we wear branded t shirts and are not able to touch. Thieves laugh in our face and come back non stop.
    Better pay raises

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Los Angeles, CA

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

    Pros

    Flexible shifts, competitive pay, room for growth

    Cons

    They do not train new associates for the individual departments. They stress customer service but do not give new employees the tools and the knowledge to succeed in servicing the customers . They place associates in departments without teaching them the details of each department.

    Advice to Management

    Train associates for the specific departments and not just general training

    Not a set working schedule and not enough staffing for certain departments. So here I am just typing nonsense, okay bye.
