    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    *pay advancement is great. If you’re a hard worker and work in a specialty dept or Pro, you get paid more than an average dept worker.
    *not as strict as other retail stores
    *you could move up to be a manager or district manager without a college degree

    Cons

    *favoritism is always at play. Sometimes it can work for you or against you
    -someone else might get a promotion over you because they’re liked more
    -you might have been late 3 times and get written up but because they like someone else, they could have been late 20 times and it wouldn’t matter
