Former Employee - Sales Associate - Paint Department in Spokane, WA (US)
Former Employee - Sales Associate - Paint Department in Spokane, WA (US)

I worked at The Home Depot full-time (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.

    Current Employee - Sales Associate in Lansing, MI (US)

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Can't hardly walk in the door without getting some kind of assistance or just a smile

    Cons

    No discounts for employees. Customers get better deal than those that work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to have security on hand at all times. Too much theft. Need to try to hold on the employees that are loyal and hard workers, and pay them accordingly

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people. Very hands-on. Learned a lot.

    Cons

    NO WORK BALANCE AT ALL! They require you to "bleed orange" meaning everything you do and everything you are is the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to remember when you were younger, less knowledgeable, or just really stressed and have patience with your staff, and treat them like an equal.
