    Pros

    Great job for someone who enjoys working by themselves, but has great customer service skills.

    Cons

    The cost of fuel and mileage on personal vehicle outweighs the pay.
    There are no employee discounts for any Home Depot Employee, unlike other home improvement companies.
    Some days there is no work, that means no pay!
    Other Days there is more work than an average hourly job, but Measure Technicians only get paid a daily salary.
    Paying state taxes in another state, but not in the state where work is primarily done, this can really put employee in a compromising position with the IRS.

    Advice to Management

    Give Measure Technicians company vehicles with paid gas accounts, or at least pay for the gas with a company account and supply traveling employees with vehicle maintenance compensation. This would drastically improve turnover, employee moral, and even job reviews like this one.

    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.

    Too many responsabilities.Not enough associates committed to their job.

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

    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.
