Customers FIRST?

Part Time Cashier (Current Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

I have been working at Home Depot part-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe hours are flexible, but you are required to have open availability even when you are only part-time.

ConsLow Pay
Good ole boy advancement system. So not much in the way of advancement for seasoned employees.
New managers in and out like a revolving door.
Reviews done by people who really don't see your work.
Too much concentration on the VOC. Random inquiries yields a better sense of the customers experience.
Long hours in the heat 100F + and 40F and below with little or no protection. A HAZARD waiting to happen.
A lot of disrespect towards fellow employees. Awarding Homer Awards to employees one week then firing them the next week..
Company directives are never shared down the line.

Advice to Senior ManagementAtlanta needs to go on "Undercover Boss" and stop looking at just numbers. Invest the same amount of money in cultivating their employees as the do with training new hires that leave. The bell curve system for employee review scoring is a joke so you can calculate the "Success Sharing?"

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
