    Pros

    fellow associates, great customers. no wait, are there really any pros? these are people and people are everywhere (else)

    Cons

    management cares nothing, poor pay, low hours, feet hurt, concrete floors, start one day at five am, work the next, four hour shift till midnight, dangerous conditions, they don't care, get hurt on the job, they don't care, and you can forget shopping at a store you work at, go elsewhere, I started shopping at Lowes.

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers who are fun, supportive & just plain nice people. Learning opportunities with the variety of products & online classes.

    Cons

    Schedules are inconsistent, few, if any weekends off & not willing to work with you on your availability. Pay is low. Return policy is outrageous allowing junk & items 2-3 years old to be returned. Need Controls in place for thieves who find cash or debit receipts, get the item & return it for cash. Have someone at doors checking receipts. If you reduced the theft & returns you could pay better wages.

    Advice to Management

    Provide your employees with input on their schedules. Ask if an employee is able to work 6-10 days in a row. Treat your employees as well as you do your customers.

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

    Pros

    There are absolutly no pros to working here maybe investment discounts? If I could give an overall rating of negative 100 I would.

    Cons

    Pay sucks. You get benifits but they are at astrinomical rates. The management and corporate don't care what's going on in your life they expect you to be there but if they have problems it's ok for them to not show up for weeks on end. Management takes their problems out on you. The attendance policy is a joke. You get in trouble for clocking in too early. Some people that work 8 hours dont have to take a lunch but others do. Coworkers and management are time wasters. Some coworkers all they do is talk and goof off all day get special treatment but those that bust their butt get treated like crap. Don't ever think about asking for more then 3 days off for a death in the family. All that time will count as unexcused absences and they will write you up. They NEVER have enough associates to help customers and the ones they have treat people like crap. They can't keep associates because they refuse to give raises and praise. Don't call the annonymous hotline they record everything you say and then play it back for your store manager. Your lucky if you get a raise. Let alone one over 25 cents. Dont work here whatever you do. STAY AS FAR AWAY AS POSSIBLE! Word to the wise. Worst place to work ever.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your associates. Deal with your problems on your own time. Dont take your problems out on your associates it's bad enough they have to work for you with the worthless amount you pay them. Up the pay raise amount. Raises should be more than 25 cents. Be more understanding when people tell you they have personal problems or a death in the family. Allow them a little extra time off to get stuff situated without having to worry about a write up. Your associates are the front line to you making your billions of dollars a year while we get pennies on the dollar. Your a MULTIBILLION DOLLAR COMPANY AND YOU CANT PAY YOUR ASSOCIATES. PENNY PINCHERS!

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Depending on quality of management, it is a fun and family friendly place to work! The benefits are not bad. Interacting with the public is enjoyable mostly.

    Cons

    The pay is not good. The work load can be overwhelming if fellow employees don't sow up. They push you to craziness almost to get what they want. The amount of work given in any given day is crazy with customers coming in regularly.

    Advice to Management

    Push corporate to pay better. Listen to employees when there is a problem with fellow employees. Have a greater number of employees on hand to call in when its busy.
