    Pros

    Great Associates, Most Of Peers were Great

    Cons

    Lies, misdirection and SM and Many in HR sprouting Company Values but not practicing what they preach. Those that said they care and not given a bit about anyone they supposedly “work for” (bottom, down perimad company structure.)
    Manager gives a lot of work, knows that DS that excell have to work off the clock to accomplish all of it. So violating labor laws.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying and just tell DS they are like any other businesses. Profit before everything and anyone. If you get promoted to manager the structure of support isn’t great. Burn out risk high, and quality of work life is low. Especially in Manhattan.

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

    Pros

    The Co-Workers, Learning about many of the
    Products
    Funny thing,, I actually liked working here

    Cons

    Corporate has lost touch,, its Too Big. Subsidiary corporate offices are needed. Concerns are not addressed. The computer system is severely outdated, store managers are puppets to the local Area Managers who look not to improve but answer and address the provided 'Check List' and of course find 'Areas to Improve'.
    No opportunity to Improve. Its all and only mechanics and Metrics and not Skill
    Each department Not having Required Tools to address Customer Concerns,, IE... Reach/Fork Lift Operator,,, It should be So Simple,,, I actually worked Sunday Mornings being to ONLY Operator in the store ,,, leaving my department empty to assist others

    Advice to Management

    In this DYI Age, there should be much more creative Metrics applied. Invest in some personal who know and can Actually Make a Difference.
    Contractor accounts need more direct attention ! HD has lost MANY due to poor preference, preparedness, and direct management involvement. Most times its left to employees from one shift to another,,, and no communication until its to late.

    Pros

    The "Homer" fund; very charitable organization.

    Cons

    Corporation has organizational schizophrenia, particularly with respect to the At-Home-Services Divisions. Constant turmoil and policy changes make it difficult to succeed. LOTS of corporate favoritism - territories never divided sensibly or fairly. You have NOT control over your schedule, hours, or how much you must travel between jobs (paying ALL your own gas and expenses).

    Advice to Management

    Stop screwing with the compensation plans of the Field Sales Reps.
