Reasonable for entry-level, but you're not going anywhere.

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

Pros

This was a great first-job for me, as it was easy to get hired and start working. Plenty of hours available with the occasional overtime, and lots of part-time position openings.

Cons

You're not going to accelerate up the ranks at Home Depot, as much as they claim you will. There's no real opportunity for raises, and the general feeling you get is that the company is benefiting as much as it can from being non-union. They're more interested in having low-quality work and paying less than they are in having high-quality associates and paying the difference.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward employees that put in extra effort. If you like their work, convince them to stay.

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The workers and experience in buildind/upkeeping houses.

    Cons

    Management sucks. Corporate sucks, under paid associates and overworked. You can move up the ladder if you're in with big shots. All politics. The real hardworkers get unnoticed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire new management.
