    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company-provided meals every month, starting hourly pay a bit more competitive with similar warehouses, work is not entirely challenging.

    Cons

    Opportunity to advance is scarce, little to no recognition for the hard work and labor you put in every day, pay should be increased to reflect high cost of living in the area, upper management does not care to talk to you unless you've made a mistake or are doing poorly at the given moment.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to have more time with associates, instead of being behind the desk/computer so much.

    Pros

    The managers and coworkers are great to be around. Managers will work with you if situations do come up. Plenty of opportunity to move up if that's what you want to do.

    Cons

    One of things I dislike is the key machine.
    I'm not sure how other homedepots are but my current one the key machine is constantly being used.

    Pros

    Company, for the most part allows employees to latitude to ensure best shopping experience possible

    Cons

    Sometimes management selectees are not the best qualified for the positions they rise to.

    Advice to Management

    Be most circumspect in the promotion of all ASM level personnel, these people have great influence on their subordinates (employees) how then reflect those attitudes and behaviors to your customers.

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

    Pros

    Just a temporary job, not a good career incubator

    Cons

    No commission share on sales, terrible annual pay raises (I got 25 cents after three years and was told that was on the high end), phony propaganda meetings and culture that only serves to benefit the dozen or so salaried employees out of the hundred+ who may work at a single store. Crap scheduling practices that put stores interests well above employees life. As like most big box employers, have not figured out the balance between keeping workers happy with scheduling and well compensated would equal to better productivity which in turn leads to better sales. Crap benefits. Another example of a "corporate welfare" taker company. This is where compensation, quality of life, and expensive benefits costs borne by employee lead them to seek social safety nets like SNAP, Medicaid, WIC, housing assistance programs, etc. and corporations knowingly keeping compensation low and benefits capped and unaffordable so that they get out of paying living wages, thus maximizing their profits. Assistant Store Managers are overworked, underpaid, and have several lawsuits in play for not being compensated for work performed. Imagine their effectiveness in managing and their mindset after getting shafted week after week. Most are ineffective zombies who are hanging on by a thread in the busier stores, who are always putting out fires and not managing. Tools to resolve customer service complaints need rethinking. Inadequate staffing levels to meet customer demand due to heavy reliance on metrics for comparative daily, monthly, and quarterly sales. No real coaching of employees. Just another crap company selling crap products who are getting away with paying and treating employees crap wages and benefits. One of many who take advantage of employees and the social safety net programs they need in order to work at heir companies. Shameful!

    Advice to Management

    Change your culture. Pay a livable wage. Lower the costs of benefits through better negotiating. And get away from "metrics" based operations and focus more on coaching and keeping employees happy. You will see turnover greatly decrease, retention soar, and sales flourish while branding your company as a great place to work and maybe make a career with.
