    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    This company has great salaries and benefits. People who work hard are rewarded and there is plenty of room for promotion.

    Cons

    As a hourly associate, the opportunity for overtime is rare. As a manager, the opportunity for "overtime" is all you want. There is the occasional situation where you question the 'the customer is always right' scenario.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I have for management is to keep up the good work. Stocks are up and it is a result of in stock products and efficient operational routines.

    Pros

    They really care about their employees, in terms of healthcare, finances, and personal life.

    Cons

    Only negative would be the wait time between being offered the job and coming in for orientation/training.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to make your own schedule a month in advance. Ability to travel from store to store when...your boss allows it.

    Cons

    The Lack of pay for what is expected. They tend to give the bare minimum for raises. Since the new AP restructure there is no room for advancement, and no more handcuffs.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your AP team to work the stores with the most activity

    Pros

    The most respect I've ever received in all my years of employment, from both sides of the aisle; the employer and employment culture, and the customers. Great karma and a truly level playing field... finally.

    Cons

    The schedule can be chaotic for new employees, but, it you stick with it, you can move up.

    Advice to Management

    The managers have all been good and fair.

    Pros

    They take care of their people, decent benefits, easy to work with, continually trying to improve and do better.

    Cons

    Underappreciated associates, micromanaging at times, sometimes unorganized, and management can be somewhat overbearing.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid allowing your own feelings and fears get in the way of allowing you to do your job and focus on the here and now and your employees. Do that and help out with the hard work and you will be an all star in no time.

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time

    Pros

    You walk a lot, so if you're trying to work out while working, here ya go. You learn a lot (garden worker, learned a ton) and it's rewarding to help people out who are generally pretty thankful.

    Cons

    The scheduling was BAD. I tried to get schedules in advance or get specific dates and management wouldn't work with me. I generally did appreciate management, as they were helpful and great bosses, but bad with scheduling.
