    Pros

    Stable Company with great benefits for full-timer

    Cons

    The training is a joke. It is just an orientation and the actual training is to shadow another employee that teaches and show you their work approach. When you shadow another, you see a different approach. You ended up learning by yourself with the tendency of committing mistakes. It is a shame that this Reputable Company does not value and concern about training . After sometime I learned that the so called Trainors are merely facilitator that makes arrangement towards what they call training schedule. I ended up training myself thru my mistakes which I know is not right. No wonder I have seen talents that leaves and a couple from my batch was discontented of how the system goes with the unprofessional characters of the Supervisors who mostly does not act like one. I do not understand the criteria of employment. I myself would start looking for a better workplace and environment. It is also a low paying outfit which is far below industry standards. I guess that speaks why most Supervisors are at a low quality standard. I would say that there were only a handful that I would respect and recognize. A career conscious person like me would not trust my growth with the people around me. I would stay until I get a better reliable company. I should have learned how to read reviews before committing the same mistake I did finding employment with Home Depot Contact Center. The name is big and attractive from the outside but small hope from the inside. No wonder I see old people employed here that looks that they are just waiting for their retirement. There are younger guys who are just the type of people who is happy to punch in and punch out and consider themselves as a part of the working class. It is obvious that politics prevail with this environment. It is whom you get connected with rather than what you know with the high standard of personality. Being operating as is would not bring the right talent in to stay not unless that is the objective of the controlling team or party to the politics. I know 4 of us are leaving by next year as a new employment with better progress and development would be better for the new year. The training and leadership are a disgrace to big name of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Change your training approach or have a Trainer who can train by example and get new hire ready before shadowing. Stop getting people that you would just throw into the water and let them learn how to swim by themselves in order to survive. Get better Supervisors that can lead with better judgement and leadership. Learn how to identify real and natural great talent to develop. Try to increase wages in order to maintain professionalism and retain good talents.

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

    Pros

    -Personable Operations Managers

    -Homer Awards

    -Employee stock program

    -Also, a handful of Managers acknowledge your existence which is kinda cool i guess

    Cons

    -"Private club" like atmosphere (you know when your in and when you on the outs

    -Deplorable treatment when you work on other shifts until they deem you "worthy"

    -Some people may call me a crybaby but GWA's get paid the same even if they spend all day taking, on modified duty, or dare I say working hard

    -Some Managers are simply unapproachable

    Advice to Management

    Don't oversell the position and be honest with potential employees.
