    Pros

    Company Match 401k, Discount on stock, Good hard day's work, Success sharing, among others.

    Cons

    Low pay until you reach Management. Slow raise process, only once a year during reviews. Reviews are generic unless you stand out by highlighting EVERY thing you do and write it down.

    Advice to Management

    Reviews should be tailored more specifically to the individual, not generic. I busted my tail for over a year and got a .47 raise to $12.97 per hour. Mentor more, be involved with those who want to advance and help them to do so.

    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.
