    Despite the job security, the pay scale is so extremely unbalanced for the hours and work load.

    Current Employee - Department Supervisor in Phoenix, AZ (US)

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Job security is fantastic and the freedom I have to accomplish daily goals is fair. I'm a department supervisor and they let me run my department the way I want to and the way I feel it should be run. Pretty much like it's my own personal store.
    The benefits are amazing and very cheap. IE, my vision insurance is only $11 and every time I go to a different eye doctor I show them my insurance they gush about how much I'm going to get for free. Dental also fairly priced and medical is also fair.
    Management above me is pretty cool. The guys directly above me come off more as peers than bosses, and my store manager is very cool. Since she's been at the store she's given more opportunities than road blocks. The previous store manager however only wanted to hinder me.
    Home Depot offers associates all kinds of chances to move up. You're likely going to get hired on part time, but if show any ounce of potential, they'll ask you if you want to go full time and move into a department with more opportunities. Do that you could get promoted. I've seen people get promoted from part time lot associate to department supervisor after 3 months.

    Cons

    The problem with being a department supervisor is that you work the most extreme hours and have the heaviest work load and you won't feel like you're being paid for it. A typical work week for me is noon to midnight pretty much everyday. I'm in charge all incoming stock, making sure it has a sequenced home on the shelf, price tag, that it's stocked, that it's in the right place in the overhead, and if none of that happens I have to explain it to a manager or a customer.
    The customers have been trained by Home Depot to expect the best. I get that, but a lot of the customers are jerks. IE, I had a customer buy out my entire stock of a particular SKU on a Saturday. On Monday a regular contractor came in and lit me up for being sold out. Now it's my job to find a resolution for this guy who's yelling at me and in my face. There are cool customers though and some will present rather interesting challenges. I work in a very red state, so the new legislation on energy efficient light bulbs just angers most customers, and of course it's my fault.
    Pay is very unbalanced. You start as a cashier or lot attendant, you get the lowest pay. Start as a floor associate you get mid-grade. Department supervisors get $2 more than that. The problem is when someone has been a cashier for ten years. There are cashiers that make upwards of $22 an hour. More than any supervisor, simply because they've been a cashier for so long. They have set schedules. Most of them get weekends and nights off. Supervisors have to work every weekend, usually work closing shifts and generally have the highest stress level jobs.
    We catch flack for missing sales plan, for scoring low on customer ratings (customer ratings post weekly and usually 9.5 out of 10. Low is 9.3 so it's ridiculous), if a sales associate screws up an order, we have to fix it, we're responsible for all shrink and swell, and as mentioned, we make less than someone who runs a self check stand.
    Want to take a vacation? As a supervisor you'll have to make sure all the people in your department get theirs first. Want Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday? You're a supervisor so it won't happen, but all other associates in the store will get that time off.
    I feel worse for key carriers. Key carriers are just department supervisors who carry keys. They don't get paid more for it. They have more extreme schedules. They're always on call. Their work load is heavier. Eventually I can reach a point as a supervisor that I can step down to being a cashier and still make a decent living. It just sickens me that Home Depot chooses to keep people who don't want to move up in the company and actually compensate them for staying at the level they're at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Supervisors should get priority schedules. 8-5 Monday through Friday and holidays off. The ratio of work load to compensation is so off balance that a more fair schedule would compensate enough. Or just raise the pay of supervisors a bit. When I saw in the news that McDonald's employees were seeking $15 an hour I was sick. For the work I do and the customers I deal with, $15 an hour would have me flipping burgers.
