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

    Pros

    The ability to grow your career and advance in the company, the access to a great diverse benefits package, developing and learning new skills, the profit sharing bonuses and access to employee stock purchases. The stability of working for a successful industry leader and seeing the changes its making to cope with the future of the business.

    Cons

    Hours are long and constantly changing schedules makes work life balance a challenge. fixed schedules only apply to full time hourly not part time, management or salaried associates. Roles are expanded beyond specific job at short notice, expect to have to do everything and cover multiple areas of the business. Accountability is difficult to enforce at all levels expect to see standards applied for one individual but not another.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders not managers is what the company is looking for if you lack the first it will be a challenge to succeed.

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

    Pros

    Plenty of nice people to meet that cannot afford what we offer.

    Cons

    No mileage, no base pay, unqualified leads. When a sale is made any mistakes in pricing or unseen things come out of your check. Management wants you to go to stores to generate leads while there are already hourly employees at the store who's job it is to get these leads. I've been crushed on price every time a customer shops me.

    Advice to Management

    Try to mention during all the comercials they pay for that we do kitchen refacing.

    Pros

    well, um, there's the employee disc-wait, nevermind, there isn't one...benefits! oh, wait, you won't be paid enough to afford them..PTO!..all..all 4 hours a month of it....you get plenty of lifting practice?

    Cons

    Here's where MET Team shines! Do you enjoy going to bed at 7 pm to wake up at 4 am or earlier to start your day? Like to be micromanaged by high school dropouts? every step you take, every move you make, they'll be tracking you? needing permission to use the bathroom? Do you thrill at lifting boxes up, and setting them down a few inches away? do you enjoy spending 8 hours in a sweltering cinderblock box, breathing in years of dust, chemicals, and leftover asbestos? bear hugging fiberglass insulation bales? balancing on rickety ladders they can't be bothered to repair while being told daily how much Safety (tm) is important? Do you thrill to endless rules, and additional steps to put an object no one wants to buy on a shelf made from warped, twisted steel beams and planks? Lose sleep over the thought that you possibly left an inch gap between boxes in your overhead? working amongst bickering, narcissistic co-workers, store associates, and managers? be pestered by customers, even though you've been hired on the understanding you're not supposed to be dealing with customers? having no social life as a result of the constant exhaustion and frustration? and all for the low, low, looooowwwwww wage of $10 an hour? Then sign up for MET Team today! and join the team in abject misery! NOW TAKING APPLICATIONS!

    Advice to Management

    less micromanagement please, maybe better pay to make the BS easier to tolerate? airflow in the store? think outside the box on occasion? please?
