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

    Pros

    Pretty good hours, weekends and major holidays off, good benefits (if you're full-time), some coworkers are fun to work with

    Cons

    Bad management from both merchandising and store sales side, unrealistic expectations from regular associates, never enough sales associates scheduled to help customers, workplace can get hostile, toxic workers aren't held accountable, company doesn't provide enough resources for employees to do their jobs effectively, pay is not enough for a decent living

    Advice to Management

    Consider what regular associates have to deal with while customers are in the stores and have fair expectations, have more associates on the sales floor so that the customers' needs are met and the merchandising teams can focus on their jobs, cut out the toxic employees so that the workplace is more friendly, raise the pay rates to accommodate high living expenses
