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

Pros

Good People & a company that really seems to care for it's employees. Home Depot seems to care about their employees from the corporate level down to the store level. The company sponsors a number of community & associate outreach and service programs. But in addition, it seemed like every week there was some sort of "Bake Sale" or opportunity to help other associates that might be experiencing trouble or having a problem. Leads to a real sense of team work & mutual employee camaraderie.

Cons

Long hours standing on a concrete slab, showroom environment, very physical workplace. lots of lifting and carrying.

Advice to Management

More competitive positions should be accessible for Part-Time associates. the company loses good people because it is difficult to transition from Part-Time to Management without "paying your dues' as a Full-Time associate. .
