    Pros

    Benefits are better than average. I enjoyed co-workers and helping customers.

    Young managers lacking maturity. Not enough people scheduled to meet customer needs. When co-workers are on breaks employees must cover multiple departments, Stressful job. Really high turn over.

    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.

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

    Pros

    If you have any talent or trade skills, they will definitely take advantage of your talents and reward you with an annual raise of 25 cents, while paying you $9-$10 per hour. You may also be asked to work all the closing shifts, weekends and then open for your department, while all full timers and management use up their necessary time off.

    Cons

    No secrets here. Walk into any H.D. and find 1 associate covering 2-3 departments, because they know hiring 2 part timers will give them 50 hours a week with no benefits, compared to a 40 hour employee. Learn knowledge of the store by a sink or swim attitude. Department Heads got their jobs because they know how to disappear from their departments and do the least amount of work in the store. Sad enough, the management promoted them? If you don't mind having your schedule run 6 am to noon one day, then 12- 9 pm the next, while you scramble all over the store to look for any department that can add 4 more hours to your big 16 hour work week, you might get over 20 hours a week, if your lucky? Then next year they will shorten your weekly hours, because you went over the allowed amount? After you worked from 9 pm to 5 am for 3 weeks to help them count their inventory, while the rest of the store kept their normal hours! If huge personal physical and mental abuse is in your job description, then this is the place! And you can do it all unassisted too, oh what department head or fellow associate covering their mis-managed time slot or department!

    Advice to Management

    As long as China imports your products and you hire desperate part timers that will work for 9 bucks an hour, your jobs will be safe. The phony attitudes displayed and whispers you openly voice about your entry level workers are a disgrace to humanity and your alleged core values, that not many employees can remember or management can honestly believe, makes this store a cesspool, that management is so far off reality, that it only builds contempt. More people know Max Headroom than Craig Menear. HD Minions will be upset when the box stores will finally disappear.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good pay (especially if you have experience), surveillance on the sales floor, undercover/plain clothed, and hands-on (reasonable force).

    Cons

    CCTV is still at the Flintstones age, work alone unless your store is a high shrink store (sometimes 2 APS'), no advancement as an asset protection manager.
