Former Employee - Millwork Associate in Lakewood, CO

I worked at The Home Depot part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Good People & a company that really seems to care for it's employees. Home Depot seems to care about their employees from the corporate level down to the store level. The company sponsors a number of community & associate outreach and service programs. But in addition, it seemed like every week there was some sort of "Bake Sale" or opportunity to help other associates that might be experiencing trouble or having a problem. Leads to a real sense of team work & mutual employee camaraderie.

Cons

Long hours standing on a concrete slab, showroom environment, very physical workplace. lots of lifting and carrying.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More competitive positions should be accessible for Part-Time associates. the company loses good people because it is difficult to transition from Part-Time to Management without "paying your dues' as a Full-Time associate. .

    Pros

    good coworkers, easy environment, can be fun if you are a people person. Management does appear to want their employees to succeed.

    Cons

    low salary, some customer's expectations about various employee's "handy man" skills are unrealistic. If a plumber was licensed, he wouldn't be working at HD for $10/hr, same for an electrician or master carpenter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    increase basic salaries instead of trying to motivate with small cash awards, You must pay the employee more as their job skills increase or they will take their new abilities somewhere else.
