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

    Pros

    Easygoing work days and wonderful coworkers, not so easy hours and pressure from assistant managers who hate their jobs. Still a good experience.

    Cons

    The schedules were usually bias and favorable to the elected employees for the most part. As well as lunch times and leniency.

    Advice to Management

    Equality always progresses

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

    Pros

    Almost always promote from within -- one of the few places someone with a high-school education can make six figures

    Cons

    While management is well compensated, front-line associates are barely scraping by.

    Advice to Management

    Increase associate pay!

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

    Pros

    Amazing salary and benefits
    Great company pride

    Cons

    Terrible Work-Life balance
    Managers overworked
    10 hour or more work days

    Advice to Management

    Create better schedules to accommodate for a better work-life balance.
    Working for 10 hour days isn't productive! Get out of the old gaurd 10 hour days schedules and you'll see a difference in productivity and employee retention.

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

    Pros

    If you are retired, collage student, want to fill in some hours and make a few dollars, this can work. Fellow co-workers can be the support.

    Cons

    Very poor salary. Usual start at 10.-11$ an HR. Even for a qualified persons. Annual review expect maybe 30 cents an HR more, regardless of performance.
    1st! Very poor communication. 2nd -Over-worked, UNDER-Qualified management.
     Understaffed store associates, unless you're willing to walk away from your dept with no coverage to take a scheduled lunch an employee needs to search through out the store and ask for someone to cover for them.
    Many feel as though corporate has no desire to address the many issues, its understood that associates and workers are the lowest cost loss and they are willing to move on and continue the turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Having worked in more than one location, store management varies, communication is very poor, employees are VERY UNDERSTAFFED, scheduled work hours, lunch breaks often NOT covered (an employee needs to go find AND SEARCH their own coverage throughout the store to take scheduled lunch or as what happens MANY times,, there is no Dept coverage).
    If an employee works over 40 hrs they are expected to leave early another day (except on a weekend) to keep weekly hrs under 40,,,, sad,,, at 10-11$ hr at time/half really ????
    Truly believe upper management has no concerns and is satisfied with poor customer satisfaction ( told to leave, punch out , to avoid overtime even if helping a customer), employee turnover ratio and is accepted.
    Advice,, Home Depot is loosing touch,,
    Not seeking/ paying qualified people to fill positions. (example) Doors/Windows/ Garage Doors etc Dept. , Every person in the Dept. cannot lift the required items, cannot drive a required Reach machine and seek assistance from others to help (while customers wait).
    Salaries are VERY poor, 10.-11.$ an hour for an able working skilled adult qualified in customer support, physical labor, sales, reliability, does not cut it. And after one year,, expect a maybe,, 30 cent raise.
    Assistant managers are stretched,, and all is put on them, and the ASMs just put it all on the Dept Supervisors, then the associates.
    A Dept which requires a machine (Fork-lift/Reach) that requires 2-persons should NOT have one person scheduled. This happens regularly,,
    The money will be made but so much more can be done.
