I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Work with wonderful people and get to assist customers with their DIY needs

Cons

Can't excel without transfer, hours cut without notice, schedule never the same

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If hours are going to be cut, let the employees know so that other arrangements can be made and schedule part-timers so that another job can be sought to help fill in the loss of hours and pay.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most of the time decent retail hours to work ,flexibility in getting the days off needed.

    Cons

    Low pay for hard work.Working in a store with low foot traffic and expected to generated a high quota at all times. Being held accountable for sales while being threatened with dismissal(to be fired) if not getting the quota accomplished.Butt kissing supervisors who don't protect their employees back and only care for their own back, and don't take care of their employees and treat them with disrespect include management.You are expected to work in every department even though you are a specialist and need to work in your own department only.Not as described in your job description.Many times there is no one on the floor, in the adjacent departments.Cutting on stuff to put bonuses in the managers pockets.There is no career advancement opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop targeting employees as a personal hate target,leave them alone to do their job.Stop letting people go because they make tool much money according to your standards (not to say morals ,something you don't have). I know personally many people,good people who where let go because they where making too much money according to Home Depot standards but they were top sales people in the company.You don't know how to appreciate people and you treat them like garbage after working many years for you,You suck as a company because your managers suck and your management turnover is horrible .You need to stop having such a high turnover and be more loyal to the employees. Give better raises,and learn to keep good employees and value your employees which you don't!!!Its the people who make the company not the company that makes the employee!!!There is no career advancement opportunities,make sure you let associates grow and move to different store and different departments don't just think about yourself which you do all the time,only hbtink about yourself,that is not how you run a company.You nee d to keep your employee happy,satisfied and growing in position!!!

    Pros

    The people that I worked with were really nice, and human resources worked with you in getting you the hours you want.

    Cons

    Home Depot opens surprisingly early and has quarterly meetings even earlier, and I was forced to start out as the lowest man on the totem pole
