    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time

    Pros

    I believe The Home Depot really cares about its employees, Veterans and the community. The people who work at THD are great, you work pretty close with management, so if you have some initiative, ambition and not afraid of a little hard work it goes a long way. Promotions are attainable to those who are willing to work for it.

    Cons

    Not a fan of the way the schedules are made, pay isn't the greatest starting out, sometimes feels like we are working with a skeleton crew.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at some of the departments that don't need multiple people, and have standard minimums in high traffic areas, this would help improve customer service, have less out of stocks and cut down on theft. Also, cross-train cashiers who deal with returns in different departments, so they can be more familiar with our products, cutting down on shrink or non-returnable items and accepting non-THD items.

    Pros

    You work with some good people. There are always exceptions.
    Schedule flexibility.
    Success sharing.

    Cons

    Internally, the employee morale is substandard due to the company's values not being effectively exercised.
    Terrible policy adherence by the company. (Outdated and/or ignored.)
    Associate pay.

    Advice to Management

    This advice is directed at corporate HR in Atlanta. Invest in your company's current talent pool. Hiring/promoting/retaining within the company based solely on experience is a poor business practice. Education should be considered as much as, if not more than, experience. Perhaps I may not have seen a District Manager, a Store Manager, and two ASMs get relieved of their positions.

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

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere. Always someone ready to help you get your tasks done. Everyone eager to help train other associates. Plenty of learning opportunities if you seek them. Some managers go out of their way to communicate with ALL associates during the day.

    Cons

    Low pay. Difficult to get a full-time position. I worked very hard for the opportunity to go on full time which I was told was the only prerequisite, hard working. An opportunity came for me to go full time but the ASM elected to hire 4 part-timers instead. Very disheartening and took the desire to work hard away from me. Fluid schedules come with the territory so your hours are all over the chart. My particular manager barely knew my name and in all the time I worked there he never had a conversation with me. I don’t see how a manager can evaluate your progress with there is no dialog with the associate.

    Advice to Management

    Don't backpedal when you tell an employee the only prerequisite for full time is hard work. A persons morale is shot when the opportunity passes them by. It's crucial that you make sure all ASM's have some dialog with each of their respective associates. This way they don't feel like worker ants. HR needs to be more involved with each associate. I've never had a conversation with HR except for the initial hiring day.

    Pros

    Home Depot is a great company to work for. There is room for growth/advancement (in certain buildings more than others).

    Cons

    Work life balance continues to be an opportunity for the leadership team. Great for associates when it comes to OT. Also, active development of talent is lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Develop your talent and weed out the leaders that don't put in the work.
