    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay. Cashiers start at $12/hr. Floor associates make more. Guaranteed raises every year if you are a good emplyee, bonuses, fun food events, you will make great friends, good family culture, consistent schedule, flexible hours, excellent benefits and job security, promote from within, no college degree required, on the job training, quick advancement, never boring, versatile job duties, stores are large so you get your exercuse in for the day. Seniors are encouraged to apply.

    Cons

    In my experience I've found: Rude demanding customers, cluttered aisles, customers being allowed to place sharp oversized items such as steel pipe and sharp metal rods that could easily injure someone in their shopping carts instead of using the proper large items carts that are available but too lazy to walk to the other end of the store to get one thus creating scary working conditions for employees and other shoppers. And if by chance you get hurt on the job, the company basically disowns you. High turnover in management especially. Managers are constantly being fired. Gossip filled work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about recieving a customer complaint on the VOC and screwing up your metrics and start backing up your employees. The customer is not always right. In fact, they are rarely right and mostly just looking for a discount any way they can.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Great people (the ones that actually work)

    Cons

    too many times they hire people that merely fog a mirror, no control over your schedule, never enough time or personnel

    Advice to Management

    You are starting to do the right things, too bad it took so long.
