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 for 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 part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very flexible scheduling, decent starting pay, extensive ability to learn about all sorts of DIY, gardening, and home improvement projects. "Success Sharing" checks that are given to associates when the store is a certain percentage above sales plan.

    Cons

    Steep changes to policies without much notice, not much room for advancement without an exorbitant amount of time, rift between stores as far as expectations of associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that bilingual associates should make more money if we are expected to use another language. Cross training is nonexistent in lesser-desired departments (service desk).

    Pros

    Treat you like family, work hard and you will generally get ahead, great values and training options, Generally have the support of your managers and department supervisors to get what you need.

    Cons

    Corporate changes all the time get confusing and complicated. Try to make things easier and usually make things worse! If cashiers are the most important part of the entire operation, why do they get paid the least amount? Yes they may be standing around all day, but that is because they are told they have to and they are not allowed to leave their stations. Also standing around hurts joints, muscles, and backs! Maybe they should get paid the same as floor associates or more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication!!! It is the key to everything! Corporate please pick an idea and stick with it. Stop changing everything around every week! Also, Allow each store to come up with their own creative and professional idea that reflects the people who work there! It is more interesting and makes working there more positive.
