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

    Pros

    Being a part time cashier means I can be somewhat selective with the hours and days I work, except weekends. We are required to be available on Saturdays and Sundays. I was able to limit my availability to after 2 p.m. on Sundays for religious purposes. Working weekends is great for me because my husband works weekends. It's a relaxed atmosphere and I feel like I'm working with family.

    Cons

    Home Depot does require employees to work weekends. There are very few exceptions. The schedule is posted 4 weeks in advance, so last minute get-aways are difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Take a few minutes each day to make an effort to get to know the associates and thus help make them feel important.

    Pros

    I guess the only thing good about it is that they reach out to the community

    Cons

    Horrible management. They can't follow their own rules. Hypocrisy is everywhere in that store. They cut your hours during the winter, yet give you a lot of hours during yhe summer.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for your employees. Management lets people treat their associates like trash.

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

    Pros

    Chance to move from one department to another
    Starting pay above minimum wage
    Out of cycle pay raises possible
    Some benefits worth cost

    Cons

    Too many taskings not enough people to do the job
    Upward or downward progression means moving stores.
    Not enough roster of employees when someone calls out sick they make others cover instead making coverage thin to non existent.
    Too many people who do just enough to get buy- can't lift heavy packages can't drive equipment ends up burning out other associates pulling them all over the store who can and will do those things
    No continuity between managers. Put this here -no put it there.
    Department heads overloaded and no management support- new product will mark down to zero sitting in overheads because they cant find it.
    No reason to shop in store versus competition i.e. no discounts.
    Management scared of losing jobs so time wasted hiding things every time someone important comes to town instead of finding permanent solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your people, Most know their jobs. Over tasking associates doesn't do anything but burn people out. Revamp Homer badge system its broken and under used.
