    Former Employee - Cashier in Irving, TX

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Usually awesome staff, slightly above minimum wage pay

    Cons

    Terrible hours, horrible customers, disrespectful/uncaring management

    the hr manager shows up and rearranges the schedules without informing people, the managers don't care about employees being harassed by customers and no matter how many times you report it, they tell you to "flirt back to increase sales" or "stop whining". No matter how many times I informed them of my inability to work certain hours, they wouldn't work with me. Cashiers get blamed for theft no matter what proof says otherwise. Overall a terrible place to work due to the stress they cause.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When your cashiers(whom you claim are important) inform you of sexual harassment from customers, do something about it. Actually care about scheduling; don't have three cashiers and only two closers. Don't promise people promotions or raises when you have no intention of giving them.
