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

    Pros

    There is a high turnover rate, which means job openings are always there. As well, there are plenty of new faces and opportunities to network.

    Cons

    The hardest part of working here is dealing with some of the customers. Most of the people that come through are pleasant, but annoying customers are always a problem in customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t overwork part-time employees.

    Pros

    Home Depot sees value in Seniors and retired contractors enough to hire them for customer service.

    Cons

    Pay is low, and standing on a concrete floor for 8 hours is very tiring.

    Advice to Management

    Provide some seating for employees to get off of their feet for a few minutes at a time.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (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.

    Pros

    Customer and Employee centered company. Intelligent people that genuinely want to help customers and help each other.

    Cons

    Big company politics can make it difficult to influence change in some areas. Employee/User Research can be difficult due to mandates that minimize interactions with store employees.

    Pros

    Stable company. Some customers are terrific.

    Cons

    Scattered management lacking focus. Some customers are amazingly terrible. You really have to work like crazy and be noticed if you ever want to make much more than minimum wage. Benefits are a bit of a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Get on the same page. Explore ways to mitigate some of the extremely extraneous waste of materials that go in the compactor.
