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

    Pros

    The ability to grow your career and advance in the company, the access to a great diverse benefits package, developing and learning new skills, the profit sharing bonuses and access to employee stock purchases. The stability of working for a successful industry leader and seeing the changes its making to cope with the future of the business.

    Cons

    Hours are long and constantly changing schedules makes work life balance a challenge. fixed schedules only apply to full time hourly not part time, management or salaried associates. Roles are expanded beyond specific job at short notice, expect to have to do everything and cover multiple areas of the business. Accountability is difficult to enforce at all levels expect to see standards applied for one individual but not another.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders not managers is what the company is looking for if you lack the first it will be a challenge to succeed.
