    Pros

    Because you have a need for a job to pay your bills but keep looking. And you can also meet and work with some good people.

    Cons

    They don't pay what they claim in the glass door app. They have very high expectations for the little that they pay and no night differential.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people the way you want to be treated

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    * Executive/Most Senior leadership genuinely cares, wanting the best for people and the organization
    * Executive/Most Senior leadership surrounds themselves with smart people to make sound business decisions and take smart risks for the betterment of their associates, organization, and the bottom line
    * Executive/Most Senior leadership consistently walk their talk, having integrity, character and taking ownership
    * Executive/Most Senior leadership and most managers appreciate people with strong, impeccable work ethic and adaptability
    * Great working environment: fast-paced, friendly, exciting, diversity is welcomed, and associates support each other (individual teams and cross-functionally) to ensure the success of tasks, projects, and events
    * Middle management, for the most part and depending on the business area, is: fair, supportive, and understanding
    * Wealth of opportunities to take your career any direction you want, IF your current manager champions you, OR you know the hiring manager; so network smart and with a purpose, and maintain a champion
    * Pays very well (above minimum wage and market comparable)
    * Excellent benefits (medical, dental, life insurance, 401K +matching)
    * Awarding perks (bonuses, training classes, care/solution hotlines)

    Cons

    * Favoritism, cliques, politics, biased performance reviews, and unethical managers can make it difficult for anyone, even top talent, to fairly grow their career
    * Conflict-avoidance is thick (1) Human Resources working for managers instead of associates, not taking associate concerns seriously, and not being true mediators for amicable solutions (2) Untrained, unseasoned, immature managers “getting rid of people,” instead of taking the high road and ownership to work through concerns
    * Middle management, small percentage and depending on the business area, tend to be: unfair regarding associate development, showing favoritism and suppressing talents of others; insecure; intimidated by direct reports; and retaliatory

    Advice to Management

    * EXECUTIVE/MOST SENIOR LEADERSHIP: Please get rid of performance reviews because they do not speak to the true quality of individuals, teams, or the work, and reviews are too subjective (feckless managers insert gratuitous biases and inaccurate information that tarnish people’s reputation which can prevent them from fairly growing their career); Spend a little more time with front line associates (due to the layers between you and them), listening for understanding and ensuring that the right thing is always done; Transform the culture into objectivity-focused a.k.a. quality of work opposed to “likability”

    * HUMAN RESOURCES LEADERSHIP: Become better advocates for associates and effective mediators for them and their managers to ensure palatable solutions; Develop mandatory instructor-led Leadership Training classes for managers; Implement programs and systems that reveal internal untapped talent to increase fairness in role selection and robust distribution of talent (skill sets)

    * MIDDLE MANAGEMENT: Read "Built from Scratch" by B. Marcus and A. Blank; Ensure that your personal core values align with THD's Core Values while in the workplace; Knowing that “liking” someone is a choice and a bonus, focus more on: value-add tasks and projects, quality of work, and associate development for each person you are responsible for leading

    *ALL: Keep up the GREAT JOB! Loving that stock price!!

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Team oriented with a family feel. Management understands the need for work life balance. Frequent meal/snacks/treats available through organized employee committee. Structured job priorities.

    Cons

    Relatively low entry pay. Busy times can get stressful. It can be hard to meet every customers expectations.

    Advice to Management

    It really would be nice to have an employee discount of some kind. Even if it was something you could only use once a quarter or up to a certain dollar amount per year.
