"I've worked for The Home Depot for about 8 months. Started in the summer. Not a good time to start if working as a Lot Associate but the pay is compensating. The supervisors do reward you for your hard work. Maybe not as often as you would like but they'll notice it. The only difficult part about working for The Home Depot is handling some of the customers. The best skill I recommend you to have is perseverance and patience. The rest will come to you smoothly in time."

"Great people I work with. What other job can you walk and talk and get paid for it. The perks have gone down the past couple of years. No bene's and no fulltime. I'm currently pursuing to grow but the outlook might not be to my expectations."

"It was okay. I learned how to cashier."

What do you like about working at Home Depot?

"There was lots of down time. If you worked in the garden center you got to listen to the radio, set to your own station (though this wasn't authorized). Tattoos, piercings, and unnatural hair colors were allowed."

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

"Just say yes to everything, then slowly work with your direct manager to get what you really want."

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

"There was no flexibility with scheduling, even for part-time employees. You literally had to be available all the time, so you couldn't take a second job and say, I can't work these times."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Be more flexible with your part-timers. Know your people. If it's really busy, hop on a cash machine, water, get carts - help out!"

"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."

Store Manager

"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."

"I have none at this time, as the management staff I worked for last was not open for suggestions."

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

"Don't take the job. You'd be better off on unemployment. They pay more!!!!!"

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

"They take advantage of their employees. They do not pay their employees appropriately."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would make sure that every employee, EVERY employee, has a good salary. Home Depot is probably the poorest paying store that I have ever been in. 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"
