"Home Depot is a good job that I worked at for over 5 years. The management treats you with respect and gives you what you need to do your job."

What do you like about working at Home Depot?

"I like open communication with management, employees working well together, and the training."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Interview for the job you want, and not to just get your foot in the door. You will be at that position for a while."

What don't you like about working at Home Depot?

"Too many people put in an eight-hour day and yet cannot afford to use any of the health insurance offered. Most of the Home Depot employees are working poor."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"If the company is reporting record-breaking profits, they should pay their lower employees better. The pay difference between management and workers is too great. Approximately four employees at every store have taped up shoes. Approximately four or more employees can't afford to fix their cars, etc. This is unacceptable."

"My experience at The Home Depot was a learning experience."

What do you like about working at Home Depot?

"I did not like the management staff I worked for when I transferred to an assistant manager. They did not welcome me because of my human resource background. I felt they thought I was a threat to them."

You guys have employees that can't even meet there bills with what you pay. It's actually an insult. I have moved from garden to flooring to flooring specialist and got a whole .50 for making Home Depot over 500,000 in six months. Sound fair to you"
