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

    Pros

    Team oriented with a family feel. Management understands the need for work life balance. Frequent meal/snacks/treats available through organized employee committee. Structured job priorities.

    Cons

    Relatively low entry pay. Busy times can get stressful. It can be hard to meet every customers expectations.

    Advice to Management

    It really would be nice to have an employee discount of some kind. Even if it was something you could only use once a quarter or up to a certain dollar amount per year.

    Pros

    Good benefits, steady hours, M.E.T. Has a Set Schedule and weekends off.

    Cons

    Pay sucks. Been here 4 years and still have new associates being hired at the same pay rate I’m at.

    Advice to Management

    Need to increase pay for the associates that have been here awhile and have more responsibilities than the new associates. It’s degrading to me as a supposedly valued associate to have new associates making the same wage.

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

    Pros

    The co-workers are mostly supportive of your success
    Decent benefits such as 401k's
    A good starter job
    learn a lot of things about painting, staining, electrical, saws, tools, and hardware

    Cons

    some people are irresponsible and don't do their jobs
    Department supervisors are lazy in some departments
    They will have a lift license and then leave expecting a non-lift licensed associate to find someone to lift a pallet on the floor
    Pay raises are applied so that everyone get's the same wages normally
    have to negoitate in the interview for the wage you want only time they will listen
    female employees often get harrassed by male dh's made to cry in some cases
    watch your back always all I can say
    if your a cashier find a switch buddy it will help you in the long run

    Advice to Management

    Take associate complaints seriously and don't sit around in your office when it is a bust work day and your needed on the floor. Have interviews with the associates int he store when doing your walks in the stores. Stop thinking that everything is under control, because it is not. Many department supervisors are not deserving of their jobs when they treat women with disrespect and wander around their store not being in the department when they are needed to be.
