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

    Pros

    Convenient locations
    Good coworkers
    Few restrictions regarding dresscode
    Few restrictions regarding piercings, tats and hairstyles

    Cons

    Management mostly conerned with their own career advancement
    Lack of Training for associates
    Bleed Orange mentality

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to take an active role in providing new hires with all the tools necessary to ensure their success with the company, instead of means in which to advance their own personal careers. Don't dangle a carrot of empty promises, instead, acknowledge and reward associates who consistantly perform well. Although it costs more to employ a trade journeyman, the value of knowlege and skill set they share is by far much more valuable than merely staffing depts with higher body counts.

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

    Pros

    Every Home Depot I have visited cultivates a family atmosphere with the team. They hire from within all the time. So much room for growth!!

    Cons

    Such a huge company is bound to have a lot of corporate red tape. Even if there is a really simple solution to a problem it can't be acted upon without corporate permission.

    Advice to Management

    Please PLEASE have your employees' backs when they need you. Too many times has a manager told me "tell the customer xyz" then when I do and customers get mad and ask for the manager they would always act like you are in the wrong. Not cool. Be more professional. Take some responsibility.

    Pros

    Hard to get fired, relaxed dress code, minimal work for day associates, good resume filler.

    Cons

    Everyone is equal, doesn't matter if you are there 5 years and a vital part of your department, any 18 year old off the street can come in and make the same $ as you, it is also just as hard for a useless bum who leaves all their work for others to get fired.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people who get the job done, fire people who don't.
