    I worked at The Home Depot part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had wonderful coworkers. Working retail can be tough and they really made all the difference. I worked at two different stores, and one was far better than the other all due to management in my opinion. At the Largo, FL store, we always had our monthly "parties" that were themed and had free food and beverages to snack on throughout the day. I am always a lover of free food. Management was usually pretty great as well. They were helpful, kind, and genuinely cared about their team.

    Cons

    Depends on the store, but scheduling was a real issue at one of the two I worked at (Carrollwood, FL). They frequently scheduled people closing and opening shifts back to back even though that was technically "not allowed." Management rarely answered their phones or actually did anything useful to help with customer issues unless you called them five hundred times. Some managers were very rude and unappreciative of how hard their team worked as well. It became very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Show appreciation for your team! Regardless of seniority or job title, every employee should be treated with respect. Show them that you actually care about their well-being and speak to them like people, not lowly servant workers. Also, you might want to actually understand how to perform each job function in the store or at least to the best of your ability. I had one manager who did not even know how to work the register and I had to help her. . . Managers should at LEAST be knowledgeable and competent on using a cash register.

    Pros

    About as good as retail gets. Good benefits even part time (dental, vision, stock plan, 401(k) matching)

    Cons

    Completely irregular schedule. Bad pay considering how knowledgeable you need to be.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees what they're worth.

    Pros

    The health and wellness benefits

    Cons

    Getting a weekend off or vacation requested with ample time in advance always denied due to employee favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Be more fair with your employees, especially those of us that worked hard for you.

    Pros

    Home Depot gives you the chance to advance in your career goals and succeed. It strives to create a positive work environment and offers many employee benefits.

    Cons

    Hours are unpredictable, though one must expect such in retail. Customers must be addressed tactfully and with respect even when they are rude/inconsiderate.

    Advice to Management

    Work on both your management skills and your leadership skills. Your employees look up to you and you need to possess empathy and emotional intelligence in order to use your human resources in the most effective way possible.

    Pros

    Good place to keep busy and help people in my retirement years

    Cons

    Customers can be very rude if you don't know something or take too long

    Advice to Management

    Hire more associates to help out on busy days or in sections of the store that are busier than others

    Pros

    Competitive pay, can do attitude can get you far. Fair hiring practices, decent benefits, 401K match

    Cons

    Too much subjective assessment of performance and drive to produce "new" talent can cause high levels of turn over and disillusionment with company practices and leadership

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on developing the people you have, and stop promoting people who "produce new talent" by grinding existing talent into the ground

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing and (most) of the people are great. You get out of it what you put in. Managers are compensated well and hourly associates are not, with no change in sight.

    Cons

    Home Depot does not value their managers. The company is focused on ensuring the font-line associates are "happy", not taking into account whether or not they are preforming their assigned tasks. The company routinely eliminates tenured mangers to replace with less tenured and cheaper.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are people too!

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, weekends & holidays off. Building relationships with customers in your portfolio and assisting them with their day to day projects. Base pay plus large sales incentives at every half.

    Cons

    A recently restructured team has give the position more of a pushy, used car salesman feeling. Turned role into a beggar versus partner.

    Advice to Management

    The bully atmosphere isn't working to drive the top line sales -- need more of a team player in the middle management roles.
