    Good entry level opportunity if you can communicate well and learn the store systems an general product knowledge.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Must enjoy helping people. Every day presents new challenges, and I enjoy learning something new, either about a product, or how to install it. Home Depot offers what appears to be good paid online training for all employees that should be very helpful if you have no retail experience. The more experienced associates are supposed to help coach you on the floor. However in my first 30 days experience, my store was so short staffed and dedicated to minimizing labor costs, I have just been pushed out on the floor to learn my department as I went along, as well as cover two other departments during off peak hours, and not given the hours needed to utilize the online training. The other associates have been pretty good about answering any questions I have about the store operating systems, when I can find one.

    Cons

    You start as a part time with very limited hours. This along with a very random work schedule that makes it Impossible to coordinate with another job or any kind of personal life, you will be hard pressed to make a viable income while trying to get to full time hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We get a lot of pep talks about customer service being the Home Depot number one priority, what sets Home depot apart. JUST SAYING IT DOESN'T"T MAKE IT SO. Skeleton crews, untrained part time help and reduced hours on the floor is not conducive to good customer service.

     I realize more man hours on the floor is just more opportunity for the bottom end of the work force to slack, but you are getting that now and still not giving the customer service you desire. The top employees who want to work can easily fill 8 hours on any shift with stocking, safety sweeps, asset protection, while still giving maximum customer service to every person who comes in the door. In every labor pool whether 3 or 3000 the top workers will always subsidize the bottom feeders. Strive to reward the top third and cull from the bottom.
