    I have been working at Orchard Supply Hardware part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Some flexibility in hours, great employee discount that compounds with sales for awesome deals, ability to learn cool hardware information from the more experienced employees, typically pretty relaxed environment.

    Cons

    Management will make or break your experience (I had a terrible first manager that everyone in the store disliked, and a wonderful second manager who kept everyone happy. Made a humungous difference). Pay isn't great, but I wasn't expecting it to be. Customers seem to be grumpier here than anywhere else. Constantly forced to ask customers to join a rewards club that barely nets them any rewards. The stores are constantly understaffed, but there are also not always enough hours. So folks are overworked and simultaneously not getting enough hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less corporate oversight, and better information for employees on the timing of sales and how they work. Most associates don't know anything about upcoming sales, and some are rather complex (like drill trade-ins).

    I applied online – interviewed at Orchard Supply Hardware.

    Interview Details

    It was a two interview. The first one was with one of the Assistant Manager. She had ask me very common questions in my opinion. When it was time for me to ask questions she was very open and honest. The second Interview was with the Store Manager. That interview was a little longer and more detailed. Plus he was very encurageing with some of the questions that I've ask like about promotions.
