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

    Pros

    Very flexible with school schedules or if you'd like to take a vacation somewhere, or just need time off in general. The people are very friendly and have a good mix of ages. Management is very friendly as well and listen to whatever questions/needs you have. Overall a good company to work for. Not to mention paid sick and vacation time (as a part time worker).

    Cons

    Customers can be rude, but thats expected. If you're promoted, you won't be getting paid much more, and it can take quite a while to move up. Definitely not a place you choose as a career, but more so a job in the meantime while you work on your next goal.

    Pros

    Great people! Always kept busy, customer or coworkers. You can always pick up more hours if you wanted to or not. Very like family oriented atmosphere.

    Cons

    Within management seems like the only way to get a promotion was to kiss people's behind, instead of hard working people..and for people who were buddy buddy with one another.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to hard working people than if they are just your friends,
