    Pros

    flexible schedule, great for those working at HD for a second job
    great co-workers
    steady work, even in the off season
    potentially could transfer anywhere in the country

    Cons

    high turnover
    low pay with pitiful raises given only once a year
    management never wants to move part-time employees to full-time
    bad part-time medical benefits (might as well not even offer it)
    management often favors undeserving associates
    management acts like they care about associates but are really only there for their $, which is an attitude that pervades the company

    Advice to Management

    Increasing pay and giving better raises will ensure you have a loyal, well-trained workforce. Poverty level wages won't bring you anyone besides people who have made a circle through food service and retail. Stop favoring associates that play up to management over those that truly deserve accolades but don't brown nose.
