    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.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Always something new to learn -- vibrant environment for curious technician and/or artist types. Full time options once you've proven yourself, or for a few experienced newcomers. A good way to learn about business.

    Cons

    Poor accommodations for disabilities / little room for advancement based on educational background. Re discrimination: based on my merit as a smart, enthusiastic, and hard-working employee, I had been asked twice to apply for open supervisory positions. But this was all prior to disclosing to my Store Mgr and HR District Manager that I am Bipolar. After that, I was never asked again ....

    Advice to Management

    Seek input from your employees in the field. The update to Special Ordering system seemed to have been a one-size fits all expansion, rather than addressing whether limited bandwidth could handle a simple scale-up of existing data architecture.

    Pros

    6 month bonuses of $50 dollars was a pro i guess. Having some friends at work helped me get over it.

    Cons

    Plenty of cons, such as the raises are an insult, after a year you only get a 20c raise, hours are crazy and inconsistent, managment in incompetent at doing anything other then make everything worse and stand in the parking lot chatting.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, they understand what should be done with the store better then you...

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of room for advancement. 401k, competitive salary, good morale. I worked there 15 years. Was relocated to 3 different states.

    Cons

    Very political, if there is ever a change in leadership at any level you start over. They joke about putting in long hours as managers. Expect to work 55-65 hours a week as a salaried manager. And zero holidays off. "That's retail".

    Advice to Management

    Don't over commit and under deliver. There is way too much political rhetoric in the company. Upper management tend to favor those they have worked with over the years. And in "big box" retail everybody is easily replaceable.

    Advice to Management

    A few more pats on backs for the great employees
