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

    Pros

    Family atmosphere with coworkers and customers. Great benefits-health insurance, profit sharing, vacation time, sick pay, paid holidays, yearly monetary reviews. Plenty of opportunities to grow within the company.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between management and associates. If part-time, lack of hours. During “slower” months, seasonal employees are laid off leaving a large workload on associates. Not enough shown appreciation for associates hard work meeting sales plan and other goals.

    Advice to Management

    Mentor your strong willed associates more so they can have better confidence to move up in the company. Work on communicating accomplishments, future changes, plans to reach goals instead of only focusing on the negatives.

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

    Pros

    Very interesting position, each day is different and can be chaotic. Exposed to a very diverse work environment and customer base. It is ALL about attitude and if you are willing it is a very interesting and challenging position.

    Cons

    Scheduling employees is a problem, it is either feast or famine! Pay is far less than what should be paid for this position.

    Advice to Management

    Generally they do a great job!

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

    Pros

    Its nice to have a 401k, benefits, access to computers and not a whole lot of micromanaging. They accommodate all schedule limitations and requests, will pay you an extra dollar an hour if you have experience or negotiate for it. You can manage your own 401k investments and contributions. They offer employee stock at a discount. They have discounts at all kinds of places for being an employee like at gyms and car dealerships. They feed you often (pizza, snacks, donuts, etc) and have fresh coffee all day.

    Cons

    They like to have several part timers rather than full timers. on your feet all day can be rough on the cement floors. lots and lots of customer questions with minimal training. Its learn as you go and can be overwhelming.

    Advice to Management

    Offer raises after a probationary period where you recognize who is serious about their job and does a great job providing excellent customer service. The once a year raise might not cut it as what you hire in at each year also rises (so its not a raise at all). Some are hired in for more than what you pay a long standing associate.
