    I worked at The Home Depot part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    friendly staff, good customers. staff helpful to new people.

    Cons

    newest catch phrase..part-time/seasonal. no guarantee of future with company. New hires open and close depts. alone with no training on the procedures. When closing and staying an hour after the store closes, YOU are expected to help the freight team put stock up. (quite heavy in the flooring dept!) Hours ridiculous, open one day at 5am, close the next at 11pm. no benefits. walking on concrete all day. to little coverage in store so you are in ALL depts where you may have no knowledge of product. Even long time employees are starting to grumble.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't insist that part-time seasonals must attend meetings where store numbers are presented. they shouldn't be privy to such private info since you don't plan on keeping them anyway. Cut the "rah-rah" motivational speeches.

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers and most of the customers are awesome

    Cons

    Don't expect to have a life. You will work every holiday, every weekend and if you ask for time off it will be met with hostility. If your not one of managements favorites than get comfortable because you will never move up and they will threaten you even if you do your job. I was an employee for over 5 years and nothing was ever good enough for them. Don't believe the positive reviews its just from HR.
