    Pros

    The associates and customers are lovely people and a joy to see every day.

    Cons

    At our store all the associates in my department left and I still am on the closing shift. When we were assigned the shifts I was told that when someone left you would be offered their shift. 3 people left and management said they are not opening any of the shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to your employees!

    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 have been working at The Home Depot (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent wages. Different shifts are (sometimes) desirable.

    Cons

    The management keeps promising more hours to competent / hardworking associates and they don't deliver because they are always hiring "EXTRA" P/T workers and often playing favorites...

    Advice to Management

    Really listen to suggestions from your employees- not just customers .
    Don't assign associates to departments where they are unwilling and/or incapable of performing tasks-especially the physically strenuous ones. Require a"fit test" for certain jobs!
    Management /associates usually greet or nod... to customers -why not do the same for all associates?

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

    Pros

    The brand is incredible for an outside sales rep everyone knows who you are. Never have to worry about someone questioning your integrity.

    Cons

    Because it is outside sales, leads are king, the company runs a shoestring budget for marketing, ask yourself did you know home depot installs for customers

    Advice to Management

    Spend more money marketing installed services and reap the rewards. Or not, and oay for it with consistent turnover. This would be the best job in the world with a little more support.

    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.

    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."
