My time there was very educational, but you have to be willing to play politics to get anywhere.

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

Pros

Amazing associates. Great bonus package and benefits.

Cons

The political games that end up getting the associates pushed to the side. All levels of management even district level must remember the companies core values and code of conduct and not bend them to suit their needs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of your people, follow the core values and the code of conduct.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    good coworkers, easy environment, can be fun if you are a people person. Management does appear to want their employees to succeed.

    Cons

    low salary, some customer's expectations about various employee's "handy man" skills are unrealistic. If a plumber was licensed, he wouldn't be working at HD for $10/hr, same for an electrician or master carpenter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    increase basic salaries instead of trying to motivate with small cash awards, You must pay the employee more as their job skills increase or they will take their new abilities somewhere else.
