    Pros

    You will learn & excel at public relations & social skills at a retail level that almost every company will accept being that you are employed from the Home Depot ... you will have to work real hard to advance and the pyramid gets smaller with each advancement

    Cons

    There is a fundamental change taking place from within. As they are constantly hiring they are also cutting work hours so should you really on a steady salary this may not be the place otherwise make yourself available for every dept after taking training for those depts
    Home Depot by all means is NOT an easy place should you have no people skills and not willing to put in some labor

    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.
