    I worked at Home Depot Canada part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fairly good working environment, O.K. pay for retail...overall management and pay/documentation is great, most workers and managers are respectful and focused on your abilities to help customers. Good benefits for retail after 6 months.

    Cons

    Very little room for advancement and when there is it's very competitive, often schedule you for full time hours in peak seasons but with part-time pay, drastically cut hours in winter/off season.

    Advice to Management

    Make more full time opportunities, increase pay to reflect knowledge needed to actually inform and help customers

    Pros

    Amazing co-workers, good energy, fun place to work for. Even part-timers get some benefits, almost every week we get treats or fun events happening for just for us employees

    Cons

    Random hours and shifts, wish pay was better. Off season (winter) hardly enough hours to go around if you are just a part-timer (although it's easy to pick up hours if your availability is open)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule.
    Knowledgeable coworkers
    Low stress
    Excellent benefits
    Great for students

    Cons

    Pay is so-so
    Accountability is lacking

    Advice to Management

    Too much dead wood. Can't seem to get rid of under performing employees. Sometimes not enough associates on the floor to deal with customers. Less focus by store management on keeping staff levels to a minimum in order to meet metrics. This would make customers happier as they could get help rather than searching the store for an associate.
