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

Pros

My co workers are really friendly and a lot of the upper management are too. Its an easy job that pays a little over minimum wage in texas. Hours are also good for part timers

Cons

The people are rude when you don't know where something is even if you are only a cashier. This job is mostly just tools and wood, so if youre looking for a fun job well this can go both ways.

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

    Pros

    The stability of the company is great, a super large retailer, and great upper leadership makes for no worries that it will fail. Strong infrastructure that includes better IT than you would expect helps too. Salary can be very large, if the numbers line up at the end of the year.

    Cons

    With size comes beauracracy, politics, and a lot of policy. Gone are the days of true entrepreneurialism, no more hiring the right people at the right amount - the system will not allow it. Expense management borders on the ridiculous, at times you think it's a third world country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back and read "Built from Scratch" and get some inspiration before someone else does.
