I worked at The Home Depot part-time (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.

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

    Pros

    I actually like my job. I have a set schedule with no weekends. I have great co-workers. I get paid time off and some holiday. Most part time jobs don't offer these kind of perks.

    Cons

    The job is only part time. It's only 25 hours a week. I wish i could at least get 30. I even asked could I cross train in another department and the answer is no. Also don't get too comfortable in a certain position b/c they change policies all the time and will get rid of your position. I used to be on the BIA team and I got off at 8:00 in the morning. It was great b/c My wife had to be at work at 8:30 and I was able to stay at home with my son and not pay for daycare. But oh well at least I was offered another position with better pay. It still doesn't make up for having to pay for daycare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some more hours.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are awesome. Fun helping customers.

    Cons

    Compensation is terrible. If your store manager is lousy, it trickles down. Communication with employees is not good. They let you know that you are replaceable. You hear how lucky you are to have a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your leaders to show employees that they have value. You should value and appreciate them as much as you do your customers. Pay them a decent wage. All you want to hire now is part-time. People need more than that.
