    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Benefits (vison and dental) , learn a lot

    Cons

    They don't care about what may be going on in your personal life, I suffered depression and they did not care that I needed time off even though I was going through the hardest of times. It's hard to get full time.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    I worked at 3 different locations and two different states. Fair pay, great benefits, you learn a lot if you keep an open mind and a opening ear, meeting tons of people. If you work hard it can pay off when you need help. Lift certification

    Cons

    Very Strict attendance policy, management favoritism, short handed most of the time, not enough pay to deal with all the thieves. If you cashier there very strict and treat you like an idiot.

    Advice to Management

    Less favoritism and more respect for the cashiers and trust.

  4. "Great place, not great people"

      Former Employee - Associate in Orange, TX

      I worked at The Home Depot full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      You learn a lot and meet great people. Great co workers but the management is questionable

      Cons

      Management only cares about their own skin. To the point I had a co worker take their own life. Half the management staff was termed

      Pros

      you learn a lot if you want to.

      Cons

      at least where i’m at you get paid good for how long you’ve been with the company versus how much you know. Also customers really treat you like scum to say the least.

      Advice to Management

      quit if you don’t want to work and let others that are willing to advance

      I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Benefits You learn a lot about the department you're in and some about other departments.

      Cons

      Management does nothing and throws associates all over to do multiple jobs then complains that employees don't work. Favoritism if you're not the favorite, expect to work by yourself as a permenant closer and get smacked with occurrences any time you go over your slowly accrued sick time while your coworkers leave early every day for months and get no problems for it. Also if you're female expect to get actually sexually...

      Advice to Management

      Promote hard workers not people who are good at getting everyone else to work while they text and walk around without their apron.
