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

    Pros

    Stable Company, can move up if you work hard and ignore the politics. Pay in long run can be good if you move up.

    Cons

    Politics, different messages from different managers. If not part of inner circle will not move up.

    Advice to Management

    Do not be afraid to listen to an hourly associate who might know more than you.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time

    Pros

    Great place to work if you are self motivated and like a lot of action. Excellent benefits for basic retail positions. Particularly good company for second career or those just starting out. Culture is very open to diversity.

    Cons

    In reality, there are very limited opportunities for advancement within the stores. Hourly pay rates are definitely good for retail sector, but do not consider experience or exceptional performance. Underperforming associates are tolerated as a matter of course.

    Advice to Management

    Add merit based advancement / compensation opportunities, eg team lead.
