I worked at The Home Depot part-time (more than a year)

Pros

I loved the willingness to work with my schedule as student in college. Fair amount of hours given, and they gave me a lot of info on my products that I used to be a knowledgable worker. Decent starting pay and ability for small bonuses.

Cons

Just issues that you would find at everywhere. I had issues with my department head being upset that I would help costumers in other departments. Nothing major.

    Pros

    If you work hard it will be recognized and promotions will become available.

    Cons

    You have to go with the flow like any retail job. If you cannot multitask and help more than one customer at a time, then this company is not for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The managers at my store do an excellent job. If anything, I would ask them to push more documentation for the people who do not perform.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyed my time there. Opportunity to share my knowledge to help customers with their Home Improvement needs; whether Homeowner or Pro/Contractor. Also got to work with a great bunch of people all motivated to provide the same degree of quality customer service.

    Cons

    Typical of the Retail industry, have to work most weekends and arranging time off can be a challenge sometimes. Salaries also typical of retail. Could always use more pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drive the company's directives, but never forget-take care of the associates, they take care of customers--everything else takes care of itself.
