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

    Pros

    Close to home. They do not discriminate against age and do hire a lot of older people. It is a well known company. Dental and Vision is offered to part time employees. Has a set schedule during week days working for the MET team.

    Cons

    Does not feel appreciated. Raises are low. Employees get reviewed twice a year. However, only given a raise once a year. Medical coverage is not offered to part time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with associates and give praise when associates do well. Make them feel like they are not just a "number".

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

    Pros

    The associates are truly the best of working at HD. They so offer a full suite of benefits they are way over priced and only for full time. Really hard to find positives about this large want to be walmart company.

    Cons

    Low pay for floor associates want to start everyone at 10 dollars per hour and only pay department heads at 1356 per hour. They offer benefits but they pay so low for hourly associates they can not afford the plan they start at 190 per pay for family well no more then 2 kids or pay an extra 25 each dependent. So 10 per hour 40 hours 400 and half gone in medical ins alone. They buy food for associates and think that makes it better??? really how about pay associates so they can live. Nothing nice about this company they sell 100 billion a year and the profits all goes to the district staff or above.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people real and mean what you say. The fakeness about how great you are is just that bull crap so you feel better about yourself. You are nothing more then about making money for yourself and keeping the middle down. Stor taking the walmart business model and making it yours. look at LOWES they not the largest but they pay the employees fair for what they are asked to do department heads start at 16.00 vs your 13???? You could be great like you think you are but you can not get out of your own way... Mark and appliances at JC penny will surely will take market share.
