    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities, training, working with good associates, building a network, great communication and clear and concise messaging from corporate down to field

    Cons

    Long hours, inconsistent schedule work till midnight one day and open at 5 AM next day
    Amount of visits from District, Regional and Corporate personnel that disrupt daily running of the store. Amount of payroll given to complete the needed tasks. Salaries for non management makes it difficult to hire in talent to develop a bench for succession planning.

    Advice to Management

    Limit the amount of visits that are unnecessary and disrupt the flow of the business in order for the store to keep morale up and run efficiently and most importantly give the associates time to work with the customers instead of getting ready for another upcoming walk.

    Pros

    As a student, THD is flexible and willing to work with my schedule. Company also offers tuition reimbursement for qualifying degrees, employee stock purchase plan, partial matching 401k.

    Cons

    Experience all depends on your supervisor/managers. Pay is low, and raises seem to rise with inflation only. Little to no financial incentive to go above and beyond (learn to operate the lift equipment, etc)

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Learning different departments and home improvement tips. Training in various departments allows one to get baseline information on different trades.

    Cons

    Rotating management leads to uneven tasks and requirements. Hours were never set and when I left NO full time employees were hired.

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great team to work with (minus my supervisor); each day was different, so something new; customers were usually great because they had a passion for what they were buying, so it wasn't a burnout kind of job.

    Cons

    Poor management - they don't seem to care about their employees or their well-being. They don't encourage promotions or push you to be better; they only care about trying to get their own promotion - seem to care solely about numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to mentor your employees; push them to be better - they'll turn around and help the company even more. Invest time in your team.
