    Pros

    People are nice, 4 weeks of paid training

    Cons

    Leads are not so good, you use your own car and have to have 100/300 insurance. No gas reimbursement, you will work 60 to 70 hours a week without pay, commission-only and it takes forever to get paid. Management expect you to work in the store for free in between sales calls. Management constantly changes your appointments out of your area and sometimes you drive hour and a half to an appointment. Kitchens and baths are very expensive for the customer and most likely no sale. Appointments are set between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. and you may not get home until midnight

    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

    The health and wellness benefits

    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.
