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

    Pros

    - Everyone in the store is like a big family and you have the opportunity to work in various departments.
    - You are able to engage with a diverse group of people on a daily basis and every day could be a mystery.

    Cons

    - The pay is not the best for a full-time job, but as a first job or a part-time job I do recommend.

    Advice to Management

    - Train employees to cross-sell between departments and create role-playing seminars for new hires to practice sales techniques, to increase profit sharing.

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

    Pros

    Full time 40 hrs per week, paid sick time and vacation.

    Cons

    Takes 3 years to get 401K match, HD is very cheap with wage increases to good workers, reviews are always late (monetary reviews are once a year). They can do better.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about your budget and your bonuses. Take care of good employees, you will benefit more in the long run.

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

    Pros

    Having fun helping customers and coworkers

    Cons

    low wage, over worked. Managers who really don't know what they are doing. It's a personality driven company, hard work isn't enough, kissing up helps

    Advice to Management

    get a life. You can't expect low wage workers to take you seriously. Most employees go home to an empty refrigerator. Employees are working on an empty stomach.

    Pros

    The company has Flexible hours, it has good management as well as opportunity to grow inside the company, they also provide on the job training

    Cons

    They have impossible sales goals at some store as well as a metrics for every little thing. Between all the metrics and goals it’s hard to provide quality of service.

    Advice to Management

    If you have a sales goal that you can barely meet don’t increase that goal, if you can’t meet your goal lower your goal to something that is possible.
