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

    Pros

    Working with good customers interested in improving there homes and families

    Cons

    Utterly incompetent corporate management. Literally a dozen operational problems every day that are directly due to dull thinking middle managers at the corporate office. For example, Can't ever get orders shipped to customers via truck arriving on-time due to corporate mismanagement of delivery operational procedures and zero accountability. Here is a typical example of what happens at a corporate level I have to deal with on a daily basis. 1) Customer wants to buy a few thousand dollars worth of gift cards.
      2) Attempt to verify using customer ID, can't do it, other verification required.
     3) Key punch in SS number to verify, won't authorize.
    4) Call corporate to verify, can't do it, accounting dept doesn't believe I, the Assistant. store manager is looking at the physical card in my hand. 4) Get them to authorize some other way, can't do it, customer, standing in the store. has to be called oh home phone.
    5) Get customer to go home to verify, can't do it, customer needs to show me ID while in the store to get gift cards.
    6) Get customer advance authorized to get thousands of dollars in gift cards, returns to store, Can't get cards, no authorization approval recorded. Customer leaves without getting thousands of dollars in gift cards. Happens day after day after day. I will be leaving in a few months so they can keep moving on the same way. The senior management responsible for the systems in place function at a level well below a first day cashier. Oh well!

    Advice to Management

    None. There is no possibility of change.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As with anything in life, opportunity is what you make of it. Ability to grow in career if motivated. Good management team, fast paced, tuition reimbursement, stock options, success sharing.

    Cons

    Entry level pay is average, but room to grow. Health insurance is good but could be better.

    Pros

    Eventually you get to a place where they know what they can expect from you and you know what to expect from them. That is why I give it two stars and am doing this review.

    Cons

    You had better have a strong constitution. You had better have a minimum of five thousand dollars saved up when you start this job. It will take 4 to 6 months before you start realizing any monies that will sustain you and your families. It seems like you will have a minimum of 8 to 11 bosses that are trying to stop your jobs from moving forward. You may turn one job in today that moves forward without a hitch and try to do it the same way the next week and it falls apart. For the most part your left to your own devices trying to figure things out. The turnover is incredible it's ridiculous it is inordinately excessive. The final negative, as if that's not enough, this endeavor seems to be hurting the Home Depot brand.

    Advice to Management

    You can't have it both ways! You can't promise people the Sun and Moon and then deliver them a sunburn and dirt. This endeavor may be better if you actually did just make your sales force order takers. Just adjust pay commensurate with results similar to salaried store pay practices. You have a lot of talented people that have come in the front door hard charging and gone out the back bitter because of poor management and poor pay practices.

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

    Pros

    Plenty of hours, good benefits, professional work environment and excellent benefits for a part-time job. They also adhere strictly to labor laws, overtime was regularly approved.

    Cons

    loud, hot, noisy and very busy environment. They will pull the part-time working full time hours scam to get out of giving you paid vacation each year. They work hard to keep unions out of their stores, which makes you think that they may have something to hide.

    Advice to Management

    Requiring more professional dress code ( ban dickies shorts) could help reduce the thug look many employees have. A cleaner store would also surely help sales

    Pros

    you can learn alot about different areas of home improvement. you have an opportunity to grow in your position. there are lots of areas in the store that you can work in depending on what your interested in.

    Cons

    sometimes the workload can be overwhelming, but you can get through it and still have a smile on your face.
