    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 (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management was not only concerned about the store, they care about your well-being too. Works well with scheduling. You can advance your career fast. Paid vacation and sick time

    Cons

    Little to no over time.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, stock incentives and bonuses, great opportunities if you work hard and know what you want. I feel very taken care of here and our company really does take care of it's customers and empowers the associate to do so. I read a lot of comments about the Home Depot on here and I get it, not everyone has the same experience and each store is different. I come from an education background, I worked in the inner city public school system for 12 years before working at Home Depot and it is night and day in regards to how I am treated. This company really does care about it's people. Now, I do have my BA from a private college so I am not going to pretend that that hasn't opened doors for me, but I've seized the opportunities that were before me as I've gained experience and I'm just going to keep working on my growth and seenwhere I end up. If you're determined, committed to personal and professional growth and above all else, kind and understanding, you'll go far.

    Cons

    Schedule demands increase as you move up. If you have your sights set on high level management positions beyond the store level you need to prepare yourself for extensive travel city wide, regionally or cross country. Mobility will make you a desirable candidate, but would be difficult for those with families or other commitments.
