Fun job but the pay is bad.

I worked at The Home Depot

Pros

I enjoyed the people that I worked with and helping the customers.

Cons

There isn't very much appreciation on the lower levels for employees. Pay was absolutely not worth it but wasn't bad as a starter job for a student.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible for part time associates going to school. Most schedulers are willing to work with you. Room for advancement. Online training. Pretty good benefits. The company has good core values and shows it by volunteer work.

    Cons

    If you get stuck with a poor supervisor, career advancement can be challenging. Poor communication between management and hourly associates.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, promotion opportunities, benefits, really get to know home construction and repair, which may help you save in your own home.

    Cons

    When I left, there weren't enough employees in my department, and they weren't hiring more. Also, their standards for "full time" are pretty high - there were some weeks where I was working 39 hours and still was considered part time. (My average was lower, to be fair.) Also, your schedule will fluctuate week to week so it is hard to maintain a regular schedule outside of work, too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I realize it isn't entirely Home Depot's fault, but try to have enough people on staff rather than loading more work on fewer people. You'll get better quality that way.
