They were not willing to let me learn new positions. Was a Front End Supervisor. When hired on they told me what goals they wanted me to reach and that they wanted me to stay in position for at least a year since it’s a hard position to fill. I agreed. Met and exceeded goals set in initial interview. Maintained them throughout employment. After one year applied for lateral move. Though I had many years experience the position went to person with no experience. Was told that my personality was more of “I get things done” and they decided to go with bubbly. Told them at that time that I am not happy staying stationary. I need new challenges and growth. After another year, still no change and no opportunities for me even though there were open positions (bubbly person was leaving, too). Left to join a company as an ASM. They are currently training me to run my own store. Much happier and much more challenging.

You people make me laugh. Home Depot is a great company to work for. Not many companies will give you a bonus for missing sales plan. They will. I worked for Home Depot for 11 years. A key caring associate. If you do your job you have no problems. Their biggest knock on them is not holding people accountable. I left because I got a better job with better money and perks. It was not an easy decision . I was well positioned making north of $20.00 an hour. Was I treated differently when I stepped down? Absolutely! So I say disregard all of the crybabies and malcontent comments. It's a great job with potential to move up in the company... if you put your mind to it!

Dead end low paying job. Was told I'd be getting 30 hours a week and had gone down to literally 8 hours per week. That doesn't fly with me.

Home Depot doesn't take care of their employees. They are not responsible to deal with employee complaints. I was harrased by management.Each day I dredded going to work but I needed the job. In the end I got hurt at work and then they fired me because I couldnt do my job. Please be aware that there are reputable companys to work for. This is not one of them.

The company restructured the full-time employee hours, requiring even less hours from part-time employees. 12 hours a week wasn't going to work.
