    Advice to Management

    Help your employees by providing the tools for them to do their job. No one wants to come to work and have to lie to customers and have customers yelling and cursing at you as if your the person that is incompetent and taking their money and not installing their job.

    Managers need more focus and direction. Trying to take on too many initiatives at the same time.

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

    Pros

    Great Company Morale, Paid Holidays, Vacation and PTO, great medical benefits, employee discount perks with other businesses, success sharing twice a year, there’s also great opportunities for growth and development. The managers are very open to feedback and will usually take it into consideration to make changes as needed. Home Depot takes very good care of their employees. Associates are empowered to assist their customers and make decisions without always needing permission from leadership First. They are always implementing new Ideas to make the work-Life balance easier. Family festivals, Christmas parties, prize give Aways, pot lucks, cookouts, and holiday contests are some of the many ways they ensure great company morale! I’ll definitely recommend the Home Depot, Especially the Kennesaw Contact Center!

    Cons

    The starting pay for customer service reps could be higher considering the amount of work that’s required. Dealing with irate customers all day can be very stressful. However , the leadership team is always available to assist. Flex schedules during holidays. There really isn’t much about the cons of working at Home Depot. It’s an overall great company!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be the great servant leaders that you are ! I’ve enjoyed my time working at The Home Depot!

    The benefits were good and I've heard the Christmas parties are a must.

    You name it. If you love being micro-managed, underpaid, and unappreciated, Home Depot Exteriors is the place for you.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, ESPP, 401k plan, in house day care

    Cons

    Management being deaf, dumb, blind and stupid about who really gets the work done. managers providing back stabbing references.

    Uses old-fashioned rack and stack system for annual review and raises. Rewards management better than employees who actually do the work.

    System allows mediocre employees a safe haven while hard working employees are overloaded.

    Too much of a good old boy network, you have to know the right people, wear the right clothing and be a clone of others in the position.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of you inexperienced and ill prepared managers that just suck up to their bosses rather than finding out who really gets the work done. Your direct manager can stifle your career if they want to.
