    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    flexible hours, flexible schedule when you need off, you learn from contractors and other associates

    Cons

    -Always understaffed
    -Sales associate are always pushed/forced do freight ( supposed to be over night stocking) and special service
    -Uncle Homer is getting pretty greedy with no increase in salary. When I started in 2014 it was like 10hr now it's 11 because they raised the starting salary so technically your experience is nothing, you will get paid the same like a fresh garden associate from the street
    - Turn over rates are high because of Uncle Homer ultimate greed. when was the last time you visited the Home Depot and found someone to help you in places like plumbing or lumber? even if you find someone they are too busy doing freight and other people's job because they are always understaffed

    Advice to Management

    -Try to be less greedy when you are the second biggest corporation in the US after Walmart (101 billion) your competitors pay their employees 50% more than you do hint: Lowes, Menards
    - instead of making infocus videos about staying hydrated in summer provide your employees with actual water. Two weeks in a row and the water dispenser is empty in the break room
    -Having less employees can save some money but thefts (no one in the aisles), customer dissatisfaction, and employees turn over cost way more than you think

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work, if you don't mind doing your job, your supervisor's job and few co-worker's jobs at a pay rate that is the same as someone that doesn't even know their clock in number yet.

    Cons

    You will be trained during your work hours and you will have customers complaining that you don't help them enough even if you bend over backwards for them, then management will take you to the office and tell you how poorly your work performance is only based on that last customer complain not the other calls from customers saying how great of a job you did helping them and meeting their needs.

    Advice to Management

    Schedule people for training before they are put on the sales floor. Train everyone on Reach Truck and OP. Two ballymore and 2 reach truck machines would be nice and remove old broken ladders from stores. And make sure you praise those that do the job of two and three employees not only those who come to work do their job, tell others that they are too busy to help or refuse to spot for those who drive. And keep specialists in their department not all over the store if you are going to complain about their sales numbers.
