Marketing Specialist

At a company known for hammers and nails, there is definitely a place for women to leave an imprint. We have female leaders that are constantly inspiring associates at The Home Depot. As a woman, you have a voice at the company and you're encouraged to share ideas and collaborate with others every day.

While the pay is lousy, the vision, dental, and 401 K are excellent benefits. “Older” women are skipped over for younger women when opportunity for promotion or advancement arise, which is their loss since the millennial crowd does not have the same sense of job loyalty.

Customers often treat you lesser than the men because they think you know less.

If you want to climb the ladder, go to Georgia... your work ethic and passions will take you as high as you want to go. If you don't want to move there... it's limited to how much growth there is.

    Depends on where you work in the organization; some are flexible to a point letting people work around home/life/kids, etc. Others you have so little time, there isn't any time left in your day to work around all the other stuff in life!

    Maybe. Would recommend if the pay was more than $11.50 an hour & there was a union, which is needed there.

It is a good company, with fantastic values. And you will learn a lot and be pushed (in a good way to develop). They incent leadership to develop and promote their people. Compensation (especially promotional compensation once you are in the company) is highly constricted with red tape. So push hard for what you think you deserve before you walk in the door. They WILL pay it, but you won't get much once you are an orange apron.

    Flexibility was all about where you were and what you could negotiate for yourself. I was lucky that I was in a highly vital, critical leadership position. Because I had proved my value I essentially came in when I wanted and left when I wanted. I believe firmly in a 40 hour week unless there is an emergency, so I was able to also offer this to my direct and indirect reports.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    8 paid / unpaid

    Short term disability, full pay for 6 weeks (vaginal delivery), and 8 weeks (c-section). Time requirement is 90 day probationary period (when you get benefits, you get STD coverage). FMLA available after paid leave. (Salaried benefits only)

    Inequality is a part of the culture, and while it's changing, it's a slow change. Women are in prominent leadership positions, and are typically respected, however there are enough good 'ol boys to constantly question yourself. I would say the company is more age-gender in-equal than gender specifically. There are a good number of late 40s to early 60s men that display hostility to young, assertive women. That being said, it's a great experience to understand better how to navigate this fact of life.

I worked a manual labor job, for which women aren't normally hired for but Home Depot hired me and, even though I heard a lot from customers about my gender my coworkers were always incredibly supportive and even told off a customer or two when it got ridiculous. Great company to work for.
