I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (more than an year)

Pros

In my store, they are very good at trying to accommodate your schedule requests. It appears that the majority of employees like working there. As a permanent part time employee, you are able to get health, dental and eye coverage!

Cons

The automated scheduling system makes some really odd shifts - it's hard to remember your schedule because nothing is ever the same! The pay rate could be better. A small employee discount would be nice too, but I don understand the reasoning.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please listen to the store schedulers and try and get your programmers to make the FAST system work!

    Pros

    Home Depot is really flexible to accommodate your needs. Also they also provide a lot of opportunities to move up in the company!

    Cons

    Some ASM's really do not try to get to know their employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have all management get to know their employees to make connections and to have a better moral in the work area

    You work for the store manager, not The Home Depot

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Home Depot gives performance based annual raises. They still offer bonuses based on store performance. They care about their associates.

    Cons

    Promoting depends on your ability to befriend your management team and especially your store manager, whether you are quaified or not. I have watched this first hand at two stores in two different states. There is not much growth opportunity. Store atmosphere varies based on the mood of the MOD.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assume less, listen to your associates more. Learn the jobs of those you manage, if you don't know exactly what your associates are doing, or how they go about completing their tasks you can not effectively lead them.
