    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Get to work around some great people and ability to move and learn new things. Opportunity to earn bonuses twice a year.

    Cons

    Communication between management and floor associates is lacking. Managements talks of an open door policy but whenever the manager is in the office it seems the door is closed.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate management needs to think about how changes will actually affect stores in different areas of the country. Not everything that works in one area of the country will work in other areas of the country.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Manager incentive program. Opportunity for advancement. Great benefits. Good training program. Many different types of jobs. Excellent CEO and upper level staff. The company goes above and beyond to provide for associates.

    Cons

    Seniority is weighted unofficially by some in upper level management. Corporate employees need to spend more time in stores to see how things actually operate on a day to day basis. Inconsistent scheduling.

    Advice to Management

    More time spent in stores by SSC employees. More SSC employees reaching out to store side for feedback and advice before rolling out programs. Consistent scheduling or consistent days off for salaried ASM's. I know we get paid very well to have crazy schedules, but SM's & DM's get paid better and have consistent scheduling. It would be better for our health and well being.
