    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

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

    Pros

    Great pay for an entry level job, co-workers are pretty good, get a pretty good workout walking all day and lifting stuff.

    Cons

    Like most retail, your hours will vary every week, so you never know your schedule more than 2-3 weeks out. This can also make having a regular sleep routine impossible.

    The work can be very physically demanding, but there is a strong emphasis on safety.

    Being an entry level position, you will be surrounded with people who dislike their job.

    Your efforts may feel unrecognized by management.

    Advice to Management

    Offer some kind of incentive for great work performance other than the existing profit sharing model. Splitting your earnings with lazy people is no fun.
