    Pros

    Working at the home depot they provide a lot of incentives for you to want to do your job well. They make you feel important and valuable which is often rare in large retail companies. Part time employees receive benefits and also you are comsidered for a raise yearly.

    Cons

    Because its a large company, althiygh they make you feel valuable, you can get lost in the mix. Also they take their business very seriously and often let people go quickly for reasons anither business may not. Theyre turnover rate is high.

    Advice to Management

    Provide in class training rather than computer work which gets tiring and boring! Its difficult to retain anything from the computer.

  10. "The Home Depot was a fair and well-balanced retail environment."

    Pros

    The Home Depot offered a very competitive benefits package and fair compensation in the retail industry. The corporate culture was positive and engaging.

    Cons

    As with any retail employer, it was difficult for store-level employees to have a good work-life balance. The stores are generally open very early in the morning and stay open until late in the evening, which results in difficult and undesirable work schedules for all levels of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management at Home depot will succeed if they truly believe in and share the eight core values with their associates. The strength of the company is its progressive and positive culture, and managers would do well to foster that culture in their stores.
