    Pros

    Supervisor is supportive and understands every situation...

    Cons

    ...but still some lazy associate still getaway with the darn laziness. I wonder how he could do away with that.. When some assistant manager didnt want me to take a breather from hours of climbing ladders, carrying weight..to dumping trash..while you can see a junior associate almost doibg nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Once in a while review your cams.. So that you may check effiency of employees.. Are those cams for display only?

    Pros

    Homer Fund, Good benefits, may have other pros depending on the store yo work at and how Good your store manager is.

    Cons

    Horrible hourly pay, Hard work, Store managers back ASM's even if they are wrong, ASM'S support supervisors even if they are wrong and show favoritism. Never report unethical behavior to any store management because nothing will be done. And you may become a target yourself. Always call and report issues and unethical behavior to HR and have documented proof to back your complaints or nothing will be done about the issue.

    Advice to Management

    Get better ASM's makes the hourly associates and store managers job easier. Store manager Matt at store 4132 is awesome. I can not say the same about his ASM(s). There are department managers at that store that should be asm(s) and all the asm(s) need more training on how to treat and work with people , manage people and work place ethics.

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, wonderful coworkers and decent pay.

    Cons

    I can’t speak for every department but where I worked in it was hard to get breaks at the scheduled time. Scheduling was a bit strange but doable.

    Advice to Management

    Please take care of the machines in your facility. Make sure new hires aren’t scheduled to work alone until they are prepared for it.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible schedule, ok salary

    Cons

    Depending on your manager and/or district manager, you can be required to work 6 to 7 days a week, 70 to 80 hours per week. They preach about work life balance, but how is that possible 80 hours a week?

    Advice to Management

    Give your assistant managers a break some time.

    Pros

    Some free time to seek employment elsewhere.

    Cons

    The company has rolled out a new SalesForce system for distributing appointments. Sales people are now "on call all day" running their own cars with no gas milage reimbursement in a 100 mile diameter area. You spend more time in your car than you do face-to-face with a customer. appointments are set 50 away from your home with little to none in your own area. Bonus Commissions have dropped and they demand 4 hours free labor in the store on Saturday to generate leads.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your sales team as people, not aprons. Bring back the store connectivity before you lose all your reasoned professionals, unless that is the strategic plan.

    Pros

    The people, The Management Team, time-off and benefits.

    Cons

    Schedule for department Managers should on a rotation this way they can help manage other departments when their peers are not there. Remember its always about being available for the customer.
