Q: What is it like working at The Home Depot Inc.?
Retail Department Supervisor in Halethorpe:

Parking Lot Attendant in San Diego:
"Life on the Parking Lot."
Pros: Best part is helping out customers and saving them time by loading items for them.
Cons: Weekend is open, only given days off according to schedule availability; parking lot gets hectic or when I am the only person working in the lot at the time.
Asset Protection Manager in San Leandro:
"Long Hours and No Love."
Pros: There are great benefits and great pay. The employees are great and most are job-focused. All of the employees want more knowledge and to expand their current situation. Everyone wants to see the business grow and do well, because it improves their own bonuses and profit shares. They offer great training and development.
Cons: The company requires managers to work 55+ hours a week with no overtime paid. They put an (hourly rate) x 40 hours on the paystub, but the extra 15+ hours of overtime is given to the company for free. According to California law, this practice is illegal. To comply with the law, managers must be paid a minimum of 2 times the current minimum wage and be paid overtime over 40 hours. So currently the CA min. Wage is $9.25, but for a manager (any level) it is $18.50. Annually (2080 hours) base is $38,480. Their required overtime (1.5 x 780=1170 hours) annually is $21,645. Total hourly compensation to meet their time worked requirement is $60,125 at CA min. Wage rate. Essentially, you are short changed financially and you have no work/life balance. It not good when you find out that, as a manager, you are being paid less than your employees' hourly rate.
