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

    Pros

    95% of Coworkers are great - helpful, fun & supportive.

    Cons

    With the inconsistent schedule you have no life- Not worth $11 an hour, seldom get breaks & not enough employees. Good employees leave. Even Walmart pays better!

    Advice to Management

    Competitive wages, more employees - stop all the returns & maybe you’d pay better.

    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.

    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...
