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

Pros

Decent pay vs. other retail chains, lots of on-the-job training, lots of opportunities to move up if willing.

Cons

Promotions often go to people unqualified for them
Big cuts to part-timer benefits
Upper management has a big disconnect from the sales floor
Zero in-store discounts for employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote the correct people! I saw plenty of associates moved into department supervisor jobs knowing they wouldn't cut it.

    Pros

    The relationships established while with the organization were priceless. Also, the benefits will surely be pleasing to you and your family.

    Cons

    Depending on your title and the department you may not experience a satisfactory work/Life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more employee appreciation by offering a better work/life balance. The organization has policies in place to attempt to show a work/life balance; however, not all business areas adhere to the policy.
