    Pros

    The Home Depot will employ selected persons.

    Work expected for pay offered is unfair.

    Minimum wages minimum work.


  6. "Miserable culture. Hard work not noticed. Management are afraid for their own jobs and it trickles down."

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

    Pros

    You get a brand new apron when you get yours dirty. You also have a nice, shiny locker to keep it in.

    Cons

    Poor culture, scared and ineffective managers. Hard work not noticed. Too worried about diversity and political correctness. If you're a gay minority in a wheelchair, you'll be a VP in no time.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people that are too old to do the job. Also, let the hard workers do their job and focus more on the old women standing around, doing nothing.

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

    Pros

    My coworkers were nice. I miss my receiving friends.

    Cons

    The management has unrealistic standards. I started as part time and then a position opened up as a full-time receiving associate and I put in for that and then I was later told that I was going to stay part time for a few months until they felt like I should be given a full-time schedule.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Things get busy but there is always something to do.

    Cons

    Sometimes associates can be lazy. But for the most part, most of the people are easy to work with.
    Receiving from RDC is a disaster. Trucks come in with products crushed, badly stacked and an absolute disaster. Mixed pallets have to be hand sorted onto silver baggage carts. Its a disorganized mess.
