    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Part timers get paid vacation and paid sick days. Not a super demanding job.

    Cons

    New scheduling system attempts o optimize resources based on sales trends. Not very effective as departments may not be staffed until close. Management is way to quick to cut hours. Very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Worry less about the Home Depot credit card and more about your so called commitment to customers first. Focus on the small stuff and the big stuff will take care of itself.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits package is quality. Fairly safe environment even though it involves the use of dangerous equipment. If you are certified as an electrician or plumber it is a good way to have a second steady income at a decent wage (or a good way to work during retirement from either of those things)

    Cons

    Despite sales increasing in many stores and our great market share, raises for employees in those stores and entry wages have deteriorated (if you have a license as an electrician or plumber your wage will be better). At least in my location laziness is not punished, and hard work is not rewarded. Retail scheduling (hours changing day to day, week to week) is a burden, but a pretty standard one. If you're hoping to get a second job to make up for the low wages here, this will be a major hurdle. The company is no longer as concerned with having associates who can share expert knowledge with the customers as they once were. Varying from location to location you may run into the typical retail problem where a manager or DM is always trying to do as much as possible with as small staff as they can get away with; you may end up watching your responsibilities slowly increase as other associates in your department disappear without being replaced.
