    Pros

    Pay well for retail, family type of team, very flexible, opportunity for promotions are always there. Bonus checks are decent.

    Cons

    Poor communication between management. Pay increases aren't that great. Some favoritism but overall ok. No extra pay for machinery licensing.

    Better communication and work with associates more to get an understanding of what it's like being on the sales floor.

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

    Pros

    Long hours and a general good co worker staff, along with humble and easy to talk to boss's helps to provide an overall good experience as an employee.

    Cons

    Sometimes you will often experience contractors who are in a hurry and are even bilingual and this can be a problem if you are not fluent in their language.

    Pros

    You can move up in the company, If you work hard & truly want to help the customer you can go anywhere you want in the company. I love helping the customer, showing them how to accomplish the project they are working on or helping them correct a problem they are having with our company, vendor or installer

    Cons

    very little account ability on associates that give little, but expect those that have strong work ethics to accomplish an imposible work load and still give excellent customer service

    Advice to Management

    look for new assoicates that have a track record of a storng work ethic and remove associates that have shown little interest is serving the customer & goals of the store. Failure to accomplish this has created an envionrment, similare to a seed of grass being chocked out by the weeds that have been around for awhile
