    Great company. Great people to work with. Management varies between stores. Fun atmosphere. Learn a lot about taking care of your home on your own. Great career opportunities. Work hard and have a chance for advancement quick. Work around your schedule.

    Cons

    Customers are not always the best. They assume that you know everything, but that's not always the case so they get mad easily.

    I worked at The Home Depot

    Pros

    The scheduling is awesome, able to access anywhere as long there is internet connection, and on your phones, android, i phone. the pay wage is great. Its a chance to work with diverse people.

    Cons

    I wish they would do away with the seasonal positions, if positiopeople are hired it should just be regular part time and full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work, and please get the credit card situation fixed.
