What employees say

Employees like

From day one the manager of the store treated everyone like we belonged there. If we had a problem he would do everything to fix it right then. I have disabilities and I was never looked at or treated any different from anyone else who worked there. I was offered rides to and from work because they didn't want me out in the weather. There were a couple of days where the manager seen me struggle to keep my disabilities ...
When trouble arises, management is there to help. We also work hard to maintain a safe working environment and are even rewarded with meals and snacks when we are doing great. We have a seperate fund strictly for employees who are experiencing financial troubles outside of work. This is an all around great company to work for! I couldn't be happier.
Fun to work with the employees and employee benefits are aewesome... The pay is great the bosses are awesome.....i love everything about the greatness of my employer and employee benefits and relationships between the other number of workers.. The. Time off work and vacation packages are so sweet..
Great support in pursuing my goals, loved the people and customers. Always had fun, company culture was great! Had plenty of cookouts and food catered in. There were always opportunities to learn or advance. Management was excellent, atmosphere was like a family.
When my brother was killed in a car accicent he didnt have live insurance and the company matxh what the associates collected and paid for my brothers creamation and all of the charges from the funeral home..i thought thay was very nice...i am very greatful for that

Employees don't like

Only the people willingness to compromise their integrity will advance not the hard honest workers
The owners should sell they suck
Why on earth would you take the guy who said that you could not compete in China and shut it down because it was a "do it for me market", and put him in charge of the "do it for me" business in this country?
No concrete chain of command. Store manager at Dublin 31021 store barely worked 20 hrs a week with a 6 fig salary. Terminated bc supervisor chose to believe gossip from other associates that was untrue. Employed over a year and was denied promotions for coworkers with less qualifications but a darker skin color. Exceeded all expectations WHILE doctoring my mental illness. Was denied on several occasions reasonable accommodations for mental disability. Short staffing and dragging associates thin. Part time 8-12 ...
I do not like how it seems that advancement in the company seems to be very limited. Whether it is from part time to full time or going into a supervisor role. It depends on when someone in higher position leaves for a promotion to occur. It takes a while for a position to open for a promotion to occur. It also seems like the full time jobs are downsized to a couple of part time jobs instead.

Suggestions for improvement

Lots of MBA's running around who know how to make sure paychecks don't bounce, but fail to understand how the company actually makes money. Not enough senior management that actually understands what happens in the field.
Happy associates=happy customers. Christmas should not be held hostage by party nazis. People who don’t attend Christmas party don’t even get a Christmas card. No Christmas bonuses are given by a billion + corporation, you don’t take from the lowest paid to give to people who make more than they do. Management does not pay attention to the abuse being dished to associates by supervisors and always backs supervisors without question or proof.
Pay your reps fairly for work/contracts done in good faith! Don’t make us sue you for thousands owed! We collect in advance for you and then you won’t pay out?!! Would you sell for you under those circumstances??? Don’t force us to work 36 hours per day bc you have the notion that customers need to be serviced within the hour!!! Where is the Orange Life in that thinking???
I would get rid of the people who made the place uncomfortable sexually. I would lay off people who showed up late more than 3 times. Lay of people screwing around on the floor or treating customers with any sort of disrespect. I would support cashiers when customers came in with rude behaviours or open containers of alcohol.
Ensure that department supervisors are properly interacting with and supervising their department. Put forth clear work expectations, and enact discipline on employees who are not doing their work. Improve upon management coordination.

Worst rated: Support from management

3.3

The worst rated factor of The Home Depot is Support from management with 3.3 points (based on 288 reviews).


So far as your job is concerned you will have the support of management after some wait time. With matters that do not affect the building itself such as your pay, time off, etc. It may take longer.

Towards the end of my working their I was basically left to run the department alone almost daily while being pregnant and limited of weight limit lifting

Management needs to work on coordinating with each other to provide employees better work resources.

Managers are for the most part very open door, but allow bad behavior from other associates.

Way to many issues at the store, manager don’t have time.

No one is really concerned about advancing the little guy. It's the brownnoser or the buddy that's promoted.

If you learn anything, you will learn it elsewhere on your time.
