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

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

    Pros

    + M-F schedule in retail
    + Paid drive time/mileage
    + Drive time results in short Fridays
    + Many more paid holidays and holidays off than store associates (you get off memorial day/labor day, etc)
    + Flexibility to work holidays for OT
    + Very flexible and understanding management
    + Good benefits

    As with all jobs happiness has more to do with who you're working for and with. I'm on a great team with caring and fun management which makes me enjoy work.

    Cons

    - Pay is competitive but still not amazing
    - Very physical
    - Can be tedious at times
    - Management training seems to be in it's infancy (for instance, Target's training is much, much better/more advanced) which results in managers that can be good or bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit playing the political games. Those days seem to be coming to an end, thankfully and a lot that were that way are getting weeded out, but the battle isn't over.
