    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.

    A few more pats on backs for the great employees

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time

    Pros

    Set schedule and early out

    Cons

    Constant threats to do better but pushed to do more in a small amount of time. Very mimally educated supervisors who usually come from Dollar Stores. Dead end and tedious work. Kmart level mentality concerning staff relations. Either your part of the 'cool kids' or your not. It's really pathetic. Quality walks 2 or 3 times per shift? Seriously?

    Advice to Management

    I am leaving Home Depot due to bullying and playing favorites by supervisors. My MET supervisor does quality walks twice a day and threatens us in meetings saying 'I'll do more until you do it right" ALso we are constantly pushed to go as fast as you can. What do you want HD? Do my job properly or be reduced to tears every day because "you suck". However if you are one of the favorites all is okay. 11 dollars is not worth it.

    Pros

    Great to work with customers. Good, friendly, positive peer groups. Management approchable.
    "Family" feeling

    Cons

    Poor training and coaching for new associates. Very under staffed in evenings. Some disconnect between management and associates regarding expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Video training is worthless - lacks depth, repetition and application - this translates poorly in customer service. Understaffing also reflects poorly in customer service.

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

    Pros

    Learn how to operate a fork-lift and other lift equipment

    Cons

    There are really only 4-5 positions in each store with any real earnings potential: (1) Store manager; (3-4) Assistant Store Managers. All other associates should expect minimum wage or slightly above with annual raises as little as $0.05 not being uncommon.

    When it comes to reviews and raises, management practices are completely and blatantly unethical. It seems to be common practice to defer employee reviews as long as possible (1-2 months or more), thus delaying any associated pay increases. Once these reviews are conducted and raises issued (if you are lucky), no back-pay is given. Assuming this practice is company-wide, just imagine the millions of dollars per year The Home Depot is saving instead of distributing to their rightful owners. "More Saving. More Doing," right?

    Advice to Management

    Value your people more than you value your bottom line. Treat others with the fairness and dignity with which you would like to be treated yourself.
