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

    Pros

    There actually is no pro to any position at the store level.

    Cons

    There is poor communication between management and the associates on the store level. Also promised that are made to the associates are not kept. Advancement beyond Department supervisor is an unclear path and they will forget about you. Mentor ship is a joke because no one in upper management is there to lead or train, and they do not recognize the hard workers. They are drastically understaffed and will will move you around to fill holes in the schedule instead of hiring appropriately. Upper Management will go home on time while the associates have to work overtime due to lack of staffing. Audits are a joke due to the fact that 3-4 people from district management will come in and tell you the same thing.

  3. "Upper management is usually in disarray and can be disrespectful."

    Pros

    They Definitely Show Favoritism Let That Be A Key Fact, You Have To Open Up A Clear Path For Your Self Working There....Might Even Have To Speak Up And Let The Managers Know You Are Looking To Move Up Long As Your Hard Work Can Back You Up.

    Cons

    Must Be Dedicated And Loyal Also Be A Helpful Team Player Thats How You Get Your Weight Up At The THD.

    Advice to Management

    Stop Showing Favoritism And Appreciate The Support From The Part Timers That Are Looking To Move Up.

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    The management positions are under rediculous stress which then spills out all over the associates. Micromanagement is rediculous! Overtime is no where to be found! Matrix is God!

    Advice to Management

    Stop running the store as if it’s your bonus check on the line! Run it with the core values the store was founded on.
