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

    Pros

    Everyone is really friendly amd willing to help each other out. Management was easy to approach and very accesible. They spent a lot of time on the floor helping out when the store would get busy.

    Cons

    Rude entitled customers here and there but nothing we can't handle.
    Training was rushed a little and most of it was online.

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

    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.
