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

    Pros

    You get to know where a lot of important parts and tools are, the great team work involved in helping customers. Engaging with carpenter's, plumbers, electricians, and welders, after a while, you get to guess what someone came I to home depot for. The connection between co-workers are professional and personal as you become friends outside of work, people want to constantly see you do well or ask if they can help in any way if someone is going through hardship. And with home depot being a corporate company, people can always be encouraged to do/learn more, and to escalate in the company with knowledge.

    Cons

    Rude customers, unsatisfying working conditions (like extreme heat & no water), last minute tasks that take away from my free time while trying to leave work, bad management, and poor attitudes from long work weeks.

    Advice to Management

    My manager was nice, always engaged in helping us whether it was to go up the corporate ladder or just an extra hand in remembering a few steps from trainings.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits and a general mission to do what is right

    Cons

    The company has gotten too big and values are suffering and culture is suffering without a real acceptance of reality by the decision makers.

    Reevaluate mission statement, commitment to all stakeholders, policy and procedures to continue to keep pace with the industry and not cut corners and leave real value behind.

    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.
