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

    Pros

    The Home Depot has a solid moral compass. They aren't about sacrificing their ethics for the sake of a sale, which I love. They also hire a diverse group of people and give a lot back to the community. They offer a lot of benefits and little treats for their employees. Although they push their associates to meet quota, they're realistic about what can and can't be accomplished.

    Cons

    Home Depot has two different sides to it. Store associates and those of us considered "store support" who are payed by the vendors but work in the stores 100% of the time. I constantly hear about how store associates are stressed out by management and their hours are being rearranged a lot, cut, and they often are stretched thin due to lack of full staffing. "Store support" associates who do merchandising have it better than those who work in specific departments. However, you never really gain knowledge unless you have the time to look things up and read packaging.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting associates based off of favoritism.

    The IT department has some serious issues in the VP ranks as do some other areas. Many VP level people are hostile in their interactions with others

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

    Pros

    Working as a Frieght associate in the receiving department is rewarding. The management team recognizes the hard work and effort my team puts in every night. It's a great job to supplement your main income and offers a great work out on the job.

    Cons

    The job is physically demanding. It requires to move at a fast pace while handling various weight of merchandise. I wouldn't recommend this job for someone who is only looking for a paycheck. The hours can be daunting if you are not used to working nights.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
