    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Core Values
    Great executive team
    National footprint.

    Cons

    Old IT systems
    “Ditch-to-Ditch” mentality for new initiatives
    Work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Focus funding on store selling skills, and revisiting those skills with associates, rather than measurement. You aren’t able to measure individual sales other then those on customer agreements and many associates cover multiple departments selling store skus you do not measure.

    Careful on initiatives such as diversity; managers want to satisfy the initiative and some categories of associate get left out even if best qualified.

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

    Pros

    I like my 7-11 pm hour shift and the tea mwork of unloading the truck and stocking shelves

    Cons

    Sometimes less than 20 hrs per week scheduled but not a big "con" as I sometimes need a little more rest from the physical nature of unloading the trucks.

    Advice to Management

    Based on the conditions and challenge of the job itself, maybe a little extra per hour rate for the truck unloaders which is what I mostly enjoy doing.

    Pros

    Living the Home Depot values is a a real thing. When you live it you enjoy your job or career. Homer fund is there for associates in need.

    Cons

    Nothing. There is consecutive scheduling, but I like the option of having open availability so you can move your schedule according to plans or need

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Challenging interesting work. Dept supervisors really run their own little businesses within the store. Customer interaction is better then in an any other retail setting.

    Cons

    Pay scale. 2+ years as a specialty supervisor with depts that make 5 million + year and I make less then $15.00 an hour.

    Advice to Management

    dial into the pay scale for middle management(dept. supervisors). We should be making a little more for the responsibility we undertake.
