    I worked at The Home Depot for more than a year

    Pros

    Some nice coworkers in the store

    Cons

    Management overlooks established employees to get promoted. Old boys network and clique management. Brown nosers get promoted despite their lack of experience and skills! Raises after 1 year are only a few cents per hour even though you had many great customer reviews and were required to do a supervisor job for 3 months. Your work at barely above minimum wage is not appreciated at all with a lot of heavy lifting!

    Advice to Management

    Start looking at your employees, stop this firing all the time when employees get over a certain per hour rate! Replacing an employee all the time is bad for the image and also experience is lost! Retraining is more time consuming and really annoys the customer as no one is around to answer product questions!

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Been there over 5 years and it's a good place to work. All training is computer-based, the store staff is friendly and engaging, the store is clean and the current management is well liked by staff. There are plenty of incentives (monetary) to work there. My benefits package (part-time) is better than my full-time job ---- matching 401K, excellent dental and vision plan. Other perks include Home Depot Associate Discounts...

    Cons

    the concrete floors are very hard on your feet!!! Need more staffing in certain areas (doors/hardware) to accommodate the evening customers (after 6 crowds).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Have you thought about offering medical insurance to the part-time workers where this is their only job and source of income?
