    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Home Depot is a stable company with relatively competitive benefits. The MET part of it has the plus of being a consistent weekday only schedule with a few rare exceptions.

    Cons

    It's retail in a corporate setting. Wages are low. Raises are pathetic and on average do not keep up with the cost of living, so your annual raise is really a pay cut unless you get promoted. Until you've been promoted twice, even those increases are insulting for the added responsibilities. Hourly supervisors for example are responsible for hiring, discipline, terminations, drug testing, scheduling, vendor relations, project management, oversight of third party labor, and ordering of fixtures, hundreds of hardware inventory items, signage and supplies for employees. In almost all other companies, those combined responsibilities would fall on salaried management.

    Advice to Management

    Every year, the annual survey of employees indicates that pay is too low. Every year any suggestion that pay be increased is met with 'well that's not going to happen, what else can we do?' treat people with respect for their dignity. Stop dumbing down the system so you can pay less. Start hiring the best and pay them accordingly. And for God's sake stop thanking the associates for their contribution to record profits while paying so little. Too many Home Depot employees have multiple jobs and/or government assistance.

    Pros

    Great 401k ! I'm lucky, I work with a great staff.

    Cons

    It's a big one. The pay is still not livable income for many of us. It's sad I have two jobs. Makes me angry that new hires make close to what a 5 year employee makes. And I get great reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying a living wage. I really want to stay.

    Pros

    Some of the people you work with

    Cons

    Scheduling, Pay, Raises, Advancement opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Resign after you let go of all middle management. The politics trickle down & it cost the company hundreds of good employees.
