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

Pros

It's good for their shareholders bottom line. Less wages equals more on the top.

Cons

I love my job and was enjoying working as many hours as were available. I have been training for other departments so I could "float" over when my department didn't have extra hours to give. That is now over. Seasonal hiring has begun again so they just add lots of part timers. It is easier to limit us to 29 hours when there are many.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I am certain that they have weighed the pros and cons of this new rule. From their standpoint it is probably a win-win solution. There will always be someone looking for part time to fill the spots.

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay for a part-time job. Learned many home improvement skills. Was able to learn most things in the store. Now it's even easier for me to do my home improvement work.

    Cons

    Some managers are very helpful, but some prefer to sit around and delegate the work. It is hard to be an employee that likes to help customers by walking them around the store to different departments. This is because there are lazy employees that stand around and point customers where they should go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Purge the lazy employees or the place will turn into Lowes.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits for upper management, and the support for your success is a phone call away.

    Cons

    Not too many, being such a large corporation, trying to make change take a very long time
