    Follow the CA state guide lines of offering more hours to part-timers before hiring new workers. Stop being cheap and buy safety shoes and reflector jackets for workers. Listen to the worker's gripes.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Benifits. Now offering set schedules for full time employees

    Cons

    Department Supervisors not compensated enough, only reason to become a dh is to hope to be an Assistant store manager. But ASM's are expected to work 60 hours a week

    Advice to Management

    Include the every day employees into the decision process on what is and is not selling and what you need more of less of. Update the computer systems and ordering process its way out of wack. Your benifits are great, but you pay is low for what you expect out of the employees. More paid holidays to bring in line with other industries outside of Retail Days off.
