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

    Pros

    Good company atmosphere, it's never a slow day if you like your day that way.

    Cons

    Could really use better access to things like forklift training. Having my forklift cetification would have made things better for me and the customers, but it took months for a class to be availble. It was annoying to always have to hunt down the 2-3 forklift people availbe per shift and pull them off what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Really good atmosphere, but I really think having more forklift operators would make things better both for employees and customers.

    A great benefits matrix package

    Devastating poor pay, poor Staffing. irregular hours not conducive to any stable lifestyle for a full-time employee

    Invest as much time into your employees as you do in your bottom line/dollar. Your bottom line will always be achieved and accomplished as your employees would be happy having felt appreciated.

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

    Pros

    Job was good, learned a lot. Customers were generally friendly and patient when we were busy. Able to get time off if you gave ample notice.
    Reasonable pay for part time retail.
    $50 wiggle room we were able to use for customer satisfaction without having to ask a manager.

    Cons

    Racist black managers toward white employees. Managers and supervisors completely unapproachable despite “open door policy”.
    Managers do not know how to talk to people or make announcements over the intercom; ive had customers complain to me about this.
    Ridiculous rules to follow.
    Rude HR/scheduler.
    Scheduler doesnt know what shes doing; either the department has every employee working at the same time or there is hardly anyone there.
    Makes a HUGE deal out of very minor cuts, bumps, bruises.
    Hires people for body count instead of by ability; small girl hired in paint department cant lift a 5-gallon bucket.
    NO IN STORE DISCOUNT

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking down to employees like theyre stupid.
    Get to know who your employees are in order to make yourself approachable. Employees would like to voice concerns.
    Hire for ability and not body count.
    Managers need to learn how to speak to people and not be racist toward white employees.
    When hiring, stop misleading people to believe they actually have a discount because they dont.

    Pros

    Great place to work when it comes to the teamwork and family aspect of working. I really enjoyed learning the procedures and processes of the customer service desk.

    Cons

    Some of the managers didn't seem to really understand how to work as a team, which some time hindered other departments from doing their assigned task to completeness.

    Advice to Management

    Please understand as management you are not just there to tell people what to do. In my opinion managers are meant to lead and show workers how to work. After all you are only as strong as your weakest link.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment that allows you to give back to the community in various ways. Provides growth for hourly Associates. Decent compensation for the workload.

    Cons

    Career bottlenecking: Potential career growth is directly attached to your mobility. Unfortunately, that mobility needs to be very generous. Positions open up nationwide, but it is tough to find the next position locally.
