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

    Pros

    Decent pay, flexible hours, profit sharing, many try to have the "family" atmosphere. The higher ups are somewhat cut-throat. That type of competition is what makes the stores successful...no time for slackers. Great place to work if in college, in need of part time or nearing the quieter years.

    Cons

    Small annual raises, associates not always recognized for accomplishments, somewhat "cliquey." A bit too chincy on the staff, especially in the winter months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect the associates and listen, listen, listen.
