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

    Pros

    Comprehensive Benifits and options to own stock

    Cons

    Accountability of leadership is very poor. The impression you get is that most are undereducated but are attempting to use their position to invalidate the employees who seem vulnerable.

    Advice to Management

    As the head of the snake goes, so goes the body.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, meet new people, opportunity to make money.

    Cons

    Commission only, no base. Lots of driving in personal vehicle 25,000 - 30,000 miles per year. Miss- spec on jobs comes out of your paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Pay installers better so sales force doesn’t have to supplement their pay. Give a base salary to sales force, for when times are tight. Fix the new scheduling software. Look at a map based on where they are coming from not just their base stores. Alert sales consultants when adding something to their schedule by phone or text rather than email. Make sure b-back sales and repeat customers go to the sales person they originally saw rather than assigning randomly. Fix or get rid of scheduling system.

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

    Pros

    They've been somewhat flexible for a part time employee in giving me requested days off, knowing this is a second job for me. This is however, in part due to the fact that in only working two days a week I'm in the top 5 sales for my district in my department.

    Cons

    As stated in my pro - I'm one of the only specialists in my district to be above sales goals, and not by a slim margin. Working only two days a week I bring in over $70K every six months...competitive with full time specialists. My raise was only .36 cents an hour...given the number of hours I work this equates to only $300 a year raise, before taxes, less than $9K a year. This is simply unacceptable treatment in terms of compensating your sales staff. I'm looking at other options.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your income generators properly. If you want professional sales people you have to compensate them for their efforts. You get what you pay for.

    Pros

    Can be a fun environment to work. Satisfaction of helping people.

    Cons

    Worked for the company in the early 2000s and much has changed and not for the better. They have cut pay tremendously and benefits. The management talks a great game about taking care of employees but they really could care less. Management at store level has deteriorated, most do not know their positions well or know how to manage people. Most stores work on a environment of fear.
    Most employees are looking for other jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Stop exploiting your employees and pay them a decent wage. Provide better training and time to take training,to all personal.
