    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

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

    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.

    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.
