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

    Pros

    Great team to work for. Manage your own time and be responsible for your own work as an individual or through team effort. In other words, not a lot of micro managing.

    Cons

    I see opportunity in implementation of associate cross-training. My store specifically had trouble in giving me the tools to do my job to the best of my ability,

    Advice to Management

    There have been areas of concern for certain associates including myself about holding employees accountable for their actions or rather lack of actions. Management could sometimes communicate better among themselves,

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

    Pros

    401k, stock purchase program, tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    More responsibility coming our way. No foreseeable pay increases. But hey that's corporate America, right?

    Advice to Management

    Find another way to save a penny rather than putting the squeeze on your employees. Get ready for A LOT of turnover in the next year.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time

    Pros

    Laid back co workers, Active workplace, Better than minimum wage starting pay, They hire special needs individuals (pro and con)

    Cons

    Rude customers, Management isn't always on the same page, Working weekends is "non negotiable" . I love that they hire special needs individuals but sometimes they don't perform their job so you are left to pick up the slack.

    Advice to Management

    Communication between and in departments needs some help, maybe make it a requirement that every associate has a walkie talkie and every department has a channel on said walkie talkies.

    Pros

    For a retail job, the place offers a bit more in terms of daily responsibilities and customer interactions. Big focus on customer service, and the corporate structure provides many benefits.

    Cons

    Scheduling is not always consistent, sometimes you may feel the need to lie about your availability just to make sure you get decent shifts.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and stock options for shares that continue to increase, working with customers from all walks of life, opportunities for moving up if you can follow the program, fixed schedules for most. I was fortunate to have great managers that taught me a better way to look at my career. I feel I am leaving the company stronger and more professional than when I first started.

    Cons

    Don't give your time to other associates who get involved with wrong attitudes or motives. It's important to balance loving what you do and being responsible to your family. That's an employees choice, not the employer.

    Advice to Management

    Always be fair, continue providing leadership, be an example.

    Pros

    Easy if you want it to be. The management is very personable. Management does seem to care about their employees.

    Cons

    If your a hard worker , you will be taken advantaged of. Promotion based off of social status within culture of company.

    Advice to Management

    Use HRs to determine who gets advanced, not managers without any metric to evaluate. Rotate your people more often so they don't get entrenched in a single position.
