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

    Pros

    Benefits are good, pay is okay.

    Cons

    Hard Physical labor, challenging when it comes to people with a disability.

    Advice to Management

    The pay does the physical labor no justice, definitely need more money for the physical issues our body ends up with.

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

    Pros

    I had to pause and think for a minute... you can purchase Home Depot stock at a 15% discount and sell it back to them later if you like, so there’s that.

    Cons

    Little room for advancement. Pay isn’t commensurate with the work. Raises are laughable and barely keep up with inflation, if they do at all. Attempts to unionize result in mass firings. Imagine how awful customers coming to a home improvement store can be. Drug test if you get hurt or break something worth more than $200. Assistant managers are often useless.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a living wage and treat employees with more respect.

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

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, mindless work. The shifts are long - like 10 hours - but only 4 days a week. You will be happy with your paychecks. If you can deal with the supervisor drama and being blamed for everything, you will like this job.

    Cons

    Awful management. I was told Home Depot hires from within. They do exactly the opposite, all of our supervisors come from other companies, usually UPS or FedEx. I've even heard of supervisors who have never had a job before! It's also no surprise that they have no idea how to do their jobs. Any of us GWA's can run the whole show better than them, but this company will keep us a GWA until we find work elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Stop outsourcing, promote from within instead. Your general warehouse associates are very loyal and are more than just laborers. Also please get rid of those stepstools you keep in the trailers they are very dangerous.
