    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Depends on your coworkers and management but I stayed so long because of the people I worked with. It was like a second home at one point and despite the work being tough and almost too much at some points, the support and teamwork made everything worth it. Also has competitive pay and great benefits from 401k to stock options!

    Cons

    Recognition and the getting taken for granted by management can be issues depending on who that management is. Turnover can be high so I’ve seen really great managers that promoted fair work and others were I felt I was being taken advantage of which is why I ultimately left. Workload vs. staffing was always a constant issue.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair and and be the leader you would like to have. It definitely takes you farther and makes the store culture better for yourself and everyone else.
