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

    Pros

    Good benefit programs, clear line of progression, customer-focused atmosphere. Management is typically well-structured and know what they're doing. Semi-annual bonuses for all employees depending on region.

    Cons

    Pay could be slightly more competitive, and positions in certain departments are definitely more difficult/physical than others. 90% of retail job training is done on a computer, and could be improved via additional human input to ensure that newer employees are properly trained to answer customers' questions.

    Pros

    The pay was great, the people (coworkers) were super cool, and you learn a great deal of information about the department you’re in.

    Pros

    You get to know where a lot of important parts and tools are, the great team work involved in helping customers. Engaging with carpenter's, plumbers, electricians, and welders, after a while, you get to guess what someone came I to home depot for. The connection between co-workers are professional and personal as you become friends outside of work, people want to constantly see you do well or ask if they can help in any way if someone is going through hardship. And with home depot being a corporate company, people can always be encouraged to do/learn more, and to escalate in the company with knowledge.

    Cons

    Rude customers, unsatisfying working conditions (like extreme heat & no water), last minute tasks that take away from my free time while trying to leave work, bad management, and poor attitudes from long work weeks.

    Advice to Management

    My manager was nice, always engaged in helping us whether it was to go up the corporate ladder or just an extra hand in remembering a few steps from trainings.

    Pros

    Home Depot takes amazing care of its employees and makes customers a priority. It is a great team to be part of.
