I worked at The Home Depot part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Decent pay vs. other retail chains, lots of on-the-job training, lots of opportunities to move up if willing.

Cons

Promotions often go to people unqualified for them
Big cuts to part-timer benefits
Upper management has a big disconnect from the sales floor
Zero in-store discounts for employees

Advice to Management

Promote the correct people! I saw plenty of associates moved into department supervisor jobs knowing they wouldn't cut it.

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

    Pros

    Coworkers are awesome. Fun helping customers.

    Cons

    Compensation is terrible. If your store manager is lousy, it trickles down. Communication with employees is not good. They let you know that you are replaceable. You hear how lucky you are to have a job.

    Advice to Management

    Train your leaders to show employees that they have value. You should value and appreciate them as much as you do your customers. Pay them a decent wage. All you want to hire now is part-time. People need more than that.
