    I worked at The Home Depot (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    received a lot of product knowledge, worked with a lot of great people that easily become your extended family, great benefits above average compensation

    Cons

    Have to be available for any shift, and weekends, worked most of all the holidays,high turn over in the upper Management team, days off are not consistent , no employee discounts

    Advice to Management

    less management turn over is highly recommended, a more consistent schedule for supervisors so they can have more family time.

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

    Pros

    hours are guaranteed to be about 40 every week

    Cons

    traveling, wear and tear on car, might be outside on fences in the middle of the morning, hard labor at times when lifting bbq grills, fence posts, tar buckets. Some employees will be allowed to take photos of the bay you remodeled or serviced, there are favorites. It was still bad working on the displays, lots of dust and debris. WIll be on ladder cahnging sink displays, hardwood bays, etc. It is not worth it, simple as that! Stay away.

    Advice to Management

    need to increase pay by$5

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

    Pros

    The Home Depot is a great company to work for, however, this division - Home Depot Interiors is not. The position does offer some benefits to part-time employees.

    Cons

    Home Depot Interiors (HDI), is a somewhat new division of the THD. It was formerly a third party, but is now owned by THD. The lead generator position was somewhat misrepresented in the interview process. It was endless hours of walking the store and harassing customers. Management was the epitome of micromanagement!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with some dignity. My experience was supervisor changed the rules and made threats to try and achieve positive results! Not a positive experience.

    I have been working at The Home Depot (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Ability to learn different departments

    Cons

    Eliminating full time, focusing on only hiring part timers with no experience. Expect a lot for little pay.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people with respect and learn how to say "thank you."

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Positive working environment. Busy work day > time flies. Compared to other similar retail operations, HD management incentivizes employees in a more effective way.

    Cons

    No employee discounts (store merchandise). Orange, not my color. A different apron would be a plus (fit of apron provided is not conducive tor physical activities associated with work activities.

    Advice to Management

    Positive working environment. Provide slightly more oversight during initial training phases (new hires) > Minimize confusion amongst new hires related to composition of training material/objectives/milestones. >> Increase effectiveness of training by increasing oversight provided during training (oversight ~ quality control).

    Pros

    I've learned an immeasurable amount of information about the world of retail that I can now apply to other jobs and have flourished in sales

    Cons

    Hours are not always agreeable to schedule. A lot of pressure for meeting every customer's needs whether they are right or wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Take the benefit of your associates more in mind. A customer's view in one situation doesn't always prove to be completely correct. Such action should have two directions of looking, not just one.
