    Pros

    Team effort, Team spirit, Team morale. Solid ethics through and through. Helpful co-workers. Hours can be added if employee show's a good work ethic. No day is the same.

    Cons

    Pay. Trying to negotiate a 20 cent increase in pay for both PT, and full time, employees is a nightmare. Customer's expectations for expertise and service range greatly, and can be a bit over the top. hard to survive on PT income. This company has a Homer Fund- but it's given out subjectively. Benefit package can be better. Pay for a specialist should start at minimum $12.50 per hour.

    Advice to Management

    Favoritism can damage you in the long run. Pay your crew far more than the minimum wage and continue showing your appreciation for those who work with you.

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

    Pros

    good perks, 2 bonuses a year, good atmosphere, not to bad discounts not from the store but from other things offered by home depot

    Cons

    low starting pay, even if your doing over night, low raises, if you need to leave early due to family problems you get a nice talking to and not everyone pulls their own weight so if your a hard worker and other associates in your department are not then it all falls on you, and if your looking to move up to a department supervisor its not what you know its who you know, a lot of brown nosing.

    Advice to Management

    hold everyone accountable, if your a hard worker and it shows then you might want to keep that employee by a nice raise, not lose them because of that

    Pros

    - Flexible Schedule
    - Potluck Safety parties

    Cons

    - Terrible Compensation for a billion dollar company; America's #1 retailer
    - Extreme gossip & rumor spreading
    - Bribes employees with useless gifts/parties/unhealthy food
    - Rundown break room
    - Bathroom was horrendous; customers would complain constantly
    - Managers didn't care about any of the employees or maintenance of store; very
      impersonal
    - Company Values and Culture are not implemented like they are supposed to be

    Advice to Management

    - At least fake like you care even if you don't
    - Hard work isn't recognized
    - Employees on the ground level literally on their hands and knees working hard
     everyday while management picks up all the credit.
    - Management never speaks up on behalf of associates
    - Management has no backbone

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

    Pros

    Most of the people there are awesome and care a lot about coworkers and customers. There are okay benefits even for part timers. You can easily move around in the company.

    Cons

    The management is a mess. The pay is what you would expect for retail. You can give this place everything you have and you will get overlooked. People will get promotions around you who do half the work you do. Don’t give it your 100% because if you do you won’t get noticed, they’ll always just expect it.

    Advice to Management

    If you have an employee who wants to move up in the company and give this place 120% effort, when they ask why they weren’t put in the classes to move up, don’t tear them down. Don’t tell them they aren’t good enough despite the 120% they already give, all the extra tasks they take on that they don’t have to. Don’t rip them apart saying that they don’t delegate well when they just want to do some of the work themselves. This happened to me and it killed all passion I had for this company. I left a couple months after because I hated the place ever since.
