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

    Pros

    Great co-workers, access to learning about techniques and products.

    Cons

    The reason they don't give a discount is insistence on a bonus that barely pays anything to base employees. Work ethic in the store I worked at nor was it valued in the Pac nw region. Brown nosing goes far but knowledge and effort gets you no where. Also helps to not be male as females get treated a thousand times better.

    Advice to Management

    Stop rewarding mediocrity just because you like someone and stop insisting on treating people like trash and blaming them when they get disgruntled.
