    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    With such a large staff you are bound to make a few great friends

    Cons

    This company use to be a great place to work at, but unfortunately some cancerous people tend to move up in this company. The pay is also below avarage now, it's sad when Walmart starts new hires at a higher hourly wage then home depot does.

    Advice to Management

    Start living the values you preach about and district management needs to take a closer look at how the upper management treats its hourly associates.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pros are the hours. Four ten hour shifts (No mandatory OT) with occasional optional overtime on the weekends. The associates at Home Depot are fantastic. Some of the best people I've worked with.

    Cons

    Management, on the other hand, leaves something to be desired. Perhaps this is universal but there is a such a disconnect in knowledge between the associates and the management, that it is at times laughable. Not that I expect the supervisors to poses a similar level of knowledge to someone who performs a given task on a daily basis, just that a greater level of knowledge would be appreciated. This is especially true...

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging. Let your employees do their damn jobs which is what they're payed to do. Also, either actually listen to them, or quit pretending to listen to them because it's awful It's patronizing.

    Cons

    Pay in general is not very good in this area. (Subject depends significantly on store management and market in location) This job is ideal for: college students, retired individuals, or individuals looking for a little extra cash. However, if you are looking to make a living pay is not enough unless your intentions are to move up to Department Head or Assistant Manager. Other than that many times hours will be...

    Advice to Management

    From experience in my area since 2008 many employees have expressed concerns on management where many have left the company. From my experience most have issues with the amount of work and responsibility for very low pay, or significant cut in hours. Noting the company goals are to become the worlds best customer service retail business it would be wise to invest in employees who are the ones contacting customers directly....
