Pros

Very flexible scheduling for part time associates. Higher than average pay for retail work. Benefits for part time associates include paid vacation, medical, 401k, dental, vision.

Cons

In the last year this particular store has had a complete turnover in assistant managers and 4 different General Managers, creating a very unstable environment. Some questionable decisions were made by these managers and now we are stuck with them. In addition staffing has been too low to cover the need.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a really good manager with a long time with the company and put him in the store. We deserve an easier time of it.

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Lots of opportunity to move up if you are willing to work 48 hours a week and more. You get to help people do projects. Very active job physically. Lots of walking 10 miles a day usually.

    Cons

    No one will help you (managers) along your career, you need to search and teach yourself. All of the assistant store managers are busy trying to get to the next step in their careers, they don't work with the department managers enough if at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your assistant store managers don't feel part of their job is making sure the department supervisors can be the best they can be. They have little time or just the culture of Home Depot?
