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

    Pros

    Great benefits. 401k, stock purchase program, tuition reimbursement, small but twice-a-year bonuses, paid holidays, above average medical and dental plans. (if you choose to pay for them)
    They've implemented set schedules in the stores that I work in. If you're a hard worker and a butt-kisser you can climb the ladder pretty quickly.

    Cons

    The pay sucks at the entry level. One does NOT work at HD for the pay unless you're management material. I started at $10.65 an hour four years ago with 30 years of experience in the trades and am STILL not even making $12 an hour. Small, but annual raises. The store closest to me has a new Lowes in town and is starting associates with zero experience in retail or construction at a minimum of $12 an hour. Real fair. Be prepared to work with some VERY lazy co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    An example of the type of hypocrisy that exists at HD: My manager came to check on the project that I was involved in last night and asked how things were going. I replied that it was going well and that I was waiting for a piece of machinery to become available so that I could drop more product. He proceeded to encourage me to not let the lack of a reach-truck interfere with my productivity in spite of the fact that when he approached me I had plenty to do and was working hard. Needless to say I was miffed but I've become used to this sort of stupidity and ignored him. The kicker? One of the associates that he was supposed to be supervising in another part of the store was sleeping in the break room less than 50 feet away and had been sleeping for almost two hours. Oblivious.
