Pros

helping & satisfying customers needs so they will come back to shop

Cons

unqualified management who like to constantly verbally threaten associates

Advice to ManagementAdvice

please screen your ASM's more before promoting. Some seem to be on a "power trip", and constantly try to intimidate both male & female associates.

    Pros

    - On-site facilities are great - gym, dry cleaning, pharmacy, ATMs, cafeteria
    - They hire a lot of young people. Median age seems to be in the early 30s in non-executive-level positions
    - It can be a fun environment depending on the people you work with
    - You do get a lot of good experience
    - They always seem to be hiring new positions
    - Stock price has been going up!

    Cons

    - Very reactionary retail environment
    - Not many paid holidays so you have to take a vacation day on the Friday after Thanksgiving (or you can work Black Friday at the stores... which sounds like nightmare)
    - Vacation time is standard 2 weeks for first 5 years of employment
    - Very Blackberry-centered and you are expected to answer emails outside of working hours
    - Lots of meetings
    - There isn't a process for internal promotion

    Pros

    Good paid, nice stores, definitely a school in retail.

    Cons

    Always recycling associates, not a real chance of upward movement. Aware line is a scam, no body actually helps the associates, and management not afraid of any real consecuenses to their acts sapparently they feel untouchable since Home Depot can afford better lawyers than any of the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some ethic classes
