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

    Pros

    great starting salary, many promotion opportunities if will to travel or relocate to be able to move through the company, major corporation with job security, company phone, laptop and vehicle with gas, toll usage was not provided until almost 2 years with the company.

    Cons

    most management members were slow at filling positions which is extra work for active team members, compensation was not increased.

    Advice to Management

    Communication about changes in the district to lower lever team members when it effects their work and day-to-day schedule. Do not demand things to be done from lower level team members when it is not their job nor do they get compensated to do such work.

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

    Pros

    Long term employment will result is some great benefits.

    Cons

    You will compromise your soul for long term employment.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more qualified personnel.
    1. You under staff your retail outlets. Read the comments found on your internal Warehouse social media.
    2. When you do hire, hire qualified personnel. This means hiring people willing to actually work during scheduled work hours.
    3. Leadership teams should become leaders. Currently most "leaders" simply document unacceptable behavior from associates. Leaders would initiate programs that include ongoing mentorship, constructive criticism, and a view toward retaining associates.
    4. Reward associates. A 3% annual raise on $12/hr wages, evaporates after taxes are taken from pay.

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

    Pros

    Great earning potential, if you are lucky.

    Cons

    This company finds any reason to penalize your commission. They manipulate sales to prevent paying bonus, and you work long days. Some sales reps have access to the scheduling software and are able to pick and choose appointments, leaving others with appointments in low income neighborhoods far from home.

    Advice to Management

    Fair distribution of work, not putting your best reps on the best appointments will allow everyone to make money, not just the manager's friends.

    Holding commission money for months after a project is installed is unacceptable. We pay our own expenses, stop holding money we need to survive and pay bills!

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, good benefits, overall good company to work for

    Cons

    Training was done mostly on the computer with not much practical training (at least for my position). Hiring employees for the right positions could also use work.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on training directly with new employees, actively guiding them more

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Sick time, personal time, and vacation time. Tuition reimbursement is available for anyone seeking any type of business degree. 401K and decent benefits.

    Cons

    Low pay/salaries. Required to work weekends (excluding prondesk employees). Part timers are scheduled non-consistent shifts. Tough to move up in the company because many employees are brought in from other stores to fill a position. Promoting from within is rare.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more coverage in all departments. Hiring more employees wouldn’t hurt the company and would more so be beneficial.
