I worked at The Home Depot full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

was able to switch departments fairly quickly, felt valued as an employee, flexible schedule and time off, learned a great deal about home improvement

Cons

it's retail, same issues as most retail places, they tend to hire upper management from outside rather than from within the company

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have more influence over how valued an employee feels than the company at large. While you do not have a say in benefits and compensation you can show your employees that yoru care about them and appreciate them. Our store manage would bbq tri tip for us on holidays as way to say "thank you"(we of course were also paid time and a half). Christmas parties are also a great opportunity to show your staff how much you care.

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly Co-workers.
    Always something to do.

    Cons

    Competition makes some employees evil.
    They recycle employees a lot so they won't have to pay insurance.
    Don not expect to work there long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop going through so many employees some people really need a job for more the just 3 months!

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent wage, for the most part friendly atmoshere

    Cons

    Work every weekend if full time, hours vary from 6AM-10PM any given day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If an associate is awarded regional recognition it should mean something, not be ignored. Associates should be recognized for their strengths and helped thru there weaknesses, not constantly reprimanded for weakness. It is your job to uplift and inspire your team.
