    Pros

    Inclusion, opportunity to grow with company. 401k, sucess share (profit sharing) twice a year. Sick & vacation time. Monetary accolades.

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

    Pros

    Family atmosphere with coworkers and customers. Great benefits-health insurance, profit sharing, vacation time, sick pay, paid holidays, yearly monetary reviews. Plenty of opportunities to grow within the company.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between management and associates. If part-time, lack of hours. During “slower” months, seasonal employees are laid off leaving a large workload on associates. Not enough shown appreciation for associates hard work meeting sales plan and other goals.

    Advice to Management

    Mentor your strong willed associates more so they can have better confidence to move up in the company. Work on communicating accomplishments, future changes, plans to reach goals instead of only focusing on the negatives.

    Pros

    Very interesting position, each day is different and can be chaotic. Exposed to a very diverse work environment and customer base. It is ALL about attitude and if you are willing it is a very interesting and challenging position.

    Cons

    Scheduling employees is a problem, it is either feast or famine! Pay is far less than what should be paid for this position.

    Advice to Management

    Generally they do a great job!
