    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Diverse environment working in multiple verticals with store associates, vendors, and installation partners.

    Cons

    Political hidden agendas and hypocritical policies. Your asked to "do the right thing", support customer service and protect the brand, but often penalized for doing just that. Reporting and evaluations are skewed to favor those in good graces. You have to be very careful to navigate land mines of favoritism, those afraid to be exposed for their ignorance, and those that turn the other way rather than having the managerial courage to truely "do the right thing" and speak up for those unwilling to bend to these pressures.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who practice what your founders and leaders preach and coragiously address the favoritism, sexism, cronyism, and blind ignorance to what happens in the Services divisions.

    Pros

    Team atmosphere with a challenging approach to shrink mitigation. Reasonable pay, with the opportunity to bonus twice a year. Ability to create your own schedule.

    Cons

    Role for an asset protection manager has been reduced drastically which makes the position scarce. The theft culture is ever evolving and the demographics for the areas covered with asset protection managers bring many challenges attempting to reduce theft impact.

    Pros

    Amazing Company with great history of success in the marketplace and retail overall, as well as a very bright future when it comes to adapting to customers and associates evolving needs.

    -Benefits
    -Upward Mobility
    -Many Career Options retail or non retail based positions
    -Protecting Associates is a Huge Priority for HR

    It’s a true gem of a company when I hear stories of competitors and the way they care for their associates or the lack there of, plus the company continues on a strong path for growth which is always great to be a part of.

    Cons

    It truly hard to say there is cons more just general opportunities that Home Depot associates have to work hard every day to address. If I had to name one issue, obviously managing compensation more based on location of employment and the cost of living there is a big concern.

    Advice to Management

    Executive Leadership it sometime seems spends less time in the stores and field than in our history. Also operations and Inventory is crucial to our success, but customer face to face time has to continue to be the highest priority of the company to protect the Brand and live the values.
