    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had good times with some of the coworkers there. Made some great friends.

    Cons

    Lazy management took credit for employees hard work. Tried to keep me as a part time employee. As to keep me intelligible for scholastic tuitions. Therefore impending on my continued education. Also was told by an assistant manger that I needed to re-prioritize my school and class schedule for my "part time" job. Needless to say I out in a resignation.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your staff and customers and listen to they're feedback. They spend the time and effort to hit your sales numbers and customer reviews show them that they're noticed

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -some positions come with a bit of flexibility, in certain stores/cultures
    -opportunity for advancement if you work hard, great for college students and new high school grads
    -great customer first driven company
    -great benefits to full timers

    Cons

    -tough economic times limit options stores have for hours, salaries, etc.
    -doing more with less makes for distracted management that easily neglects solid communication with employees, to include proper reviews, and attention to their needs
    -"customer first" sometimes means employees' credit is on the line without due process
    -limited hours and often slow moves to full time make entry level, and even seasoned associates make it difficult to make a living
    -limited benefits to those living off of part time employment

    Advice to Management

    -more clear communication to employees; take care of ALL your people, really!
    -focus on lead generation/home services at every level, with real support to your lead generators, and give solid recognition to associates who generate leads
    -deliberately include your team in decision making process, create opportunities for for team members to use their diverse skills, creativity, and experience
