Call Center Supervisor (Former Employee), Manassas, VA – July 13, 2013
Pros: pay, benefits, discounts
Cons: location, manager
When I first started at this company the employees were fun to work with, it was a call center so we understood the frustrations of the work, but the manager at the time was not a delight to work with. When she left and the replacement manager came it became a less stressed place to work. I was promoted to supervisor and things were doing really good – more... in the call center until they brought in a new manager again and then she decided that she was going to demote me for no reason other than there shouldn't be a supervisor and manager of the call center. I kept my same pay rate but my title changed and the call center became stressful again. – less
Im a Home Depot Sales Coordinator (Former Employee), Miami, fl – September 24, 2014
Pros: learned how to time manage exceptionally well
Cons: disrespectful general manager
I was recruited by this company due to having previous experience with one of there competitors. I was brought on to be a Home Depot Sales Coordinator which had quite of bit of duties that weren't hashed out prior to my hire. A typical week started off Monday with corporate meeting/calls, scheduling, recruiting, follow up with customers, training, branch – more... meetings with employee performances, pay roll and store event confirmations. I was working 6 days a week with no weekends off. The days after consisted of visiting 11 of my stores in the broward area to follow up with Store Managers and Store Lead Generators for quotas, events and training Home depot associates. Id also have to visit our employees for payrolls, take them new flyers, re-train on new products, be present for events, training, recruiting and visit all stores in a weekend span of time. The hardest part was the lack of time given to finish all tasks, the enjoyable part was reaching goals, getting credit from corporate for always being positive and doing more than I was assigned on doing. – less
It was a professional and positive challenging environment.

Pros: ability to make alot of $, compete with co-workers on all teams with sales (to keep your head in the game)
Cons: too long of hrs, promises not always met, competiton sometimes makes aggressive workers.
When I 1st start my day it would be at about 7:30am Mon-Sun, then take roll and announce the day before's success on how many Fw1 cans (Fastwax\waterless wash'n wax) we sold the day before and to hit quota everyday has to be consistent of $325(bell), and then we discuss our goals in a sort of pep rally. then its onto choosing teams 2 - 5 co-workers – more... per vehicle, then we find out where each Team is headed, then collect money as a spotter to our destination\ or we pay for it then get reimbursed on our pay check. After that we all head outside to gather up each individual persons inventory for the day and load it all in Team leaders vehicle, stop on the way out to fill up on gas, then head to location, when we get there unload and setup, then wrk until we hit bell each atleast and when and if were done have to contact management at the office, if its ok to head back. Once we are back at the office we turn in our consignment and see if we did our #'s right. Head home next day same. The best part of the day is mainly when everybody breaks even and or willing to help others workers reach there goals. The hardest has to be keeping everyone positive – less

Sales Agent (Current Employee), Houston, Texas – March 27, 2014
Pros: one-on-one with customers
Cons: hours depend on sales
Other than my first job as a Leasing Agent, this is by far my favorite job.
The job is pretty straight forward; learn the material, speak with customers, get appointments, and make sure the customer is satisfied with the service.
The hardest part of the job is staying optimistic after continues rejection. The only "bad" part of the job is when it – more... gets slow, for example if you haven't set up an appointment in two hours-you have to go home. – less
I have gained a lot of knowledge working at the National Agricultural Library
Management Assistant (Current Employee), Beltsville, MD – March 24, 2014
Pros: there is a lot of variety.
Cons: always pulled in many different directions, everbody thinks what they want done is more important than the next persons wants or needs.
My day entails many different things from one day to the next. One day I could be entertaining the Under Secretary of the Department of Agriculture, the next day I could be crawling around on the floor troubleshooting problems with the phone line, on another day I can be supervising contractors at the library, but the next day I could be entering budget – more... information. There is no such thing as a typical day at work for me. My job connects so many different aspects that it is always something I'm doing that was different from the day before and I do enjoy that aspect. – less

Pros: they contributed to breast cancer 5k runs, had company cook outs a couple of times a year, and once a year voluteered to a charity.
Cons: had one mandatory week end to work once a month.
Great place to work! Management was efficient, productive, team oriented, and understanding. Their efficiency was projected in the way they rotated their employees to different departments so as to challenge their experiences and strong points. That also gave them the advantage of filling an open position with little effort. The co-workers were usually – more... willing to help and in good spirits. – less
it is an intimidating environment with little compensation
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee), Taylorsville, UT – March 5, 2014
Pros: free fountain beverages
Cons: little compensation, no set breaks or lunch, no benefits, hours, location
A typical day at work consists of taking an inventory of the alcohol and tobacco products at the beginning and end of the shift, serving customers, cleaning the various parts of the facility (counters, pumps, parking lot, sweep/mop the floors, take out the trash, etc.) and making sure the products for sale are stocked and positioned properly. The area – more... in which the store in located is a higher crime area so there is the need to prevent theft and other problems
There I have learned better customer services skills, as well as proper procedure in handling money and operation of a till.
Management has high expectations for little compensation and very limited interaction with employees. There are no staff meetings and every shift I have had I have been by myself (excluding training).
I have limited interactions with my co-workers since all of my shifts are by myself. the primary interactions I have had has been trying to get shift covered which is quite difficult since many of them have other jobs
The hardest part of the job is dealing with the environment and some of the less compliant customers by myself. During training I had a co-worker discuss a situation where he was robbed at gun point and that a designated with me since.
The most enjoyable part of the job is dealing with the general customer. I enjoy interacting with people – less
the day of the week varied depending on the hours that I have worked. I learned how to run a variety of lift machines and about delivering supplies to the job sites. I enjoyed working with the management and they liked my work because I went the extra mile with what I did for them. The co workers seemed to like working with me. The hardest part of the – more... job was not being able to get the hours that I wanted(I wanted more). I loved the independence that it gave me to do my job. – less

Direct Care Team Leader (Former Employee), Allegan, MI – September 17, 2013
I did not enjoy my time at this employer as there was very little communication with in the company and I was treated like I din't know anything about the job after 10+ years experience in the field. They lower or raise your hours regardless of your needs with out explanation.
