    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay ,customers and career opportunities

    Cons

    Communication and horrible scheduling. Poor management . They don't show the cashier's any appreciation at all. They push credit accounts for the store. But no thank you at all, there is never any money to do anything for the cashier's . Our store is actually 2nd or 3rd in the district. We help add all this money to our fun fund account. But we never see any of it. No appreciation at all.

    Advice to Management

    They need to be more consistent and always show appreciation to the employees. Alot of us go above and beyond for home depot. Think about the employees and stop thinking about yourselves.

    Pros

    Stock Options Health Insurance Vacation FMLA The veteran employees are more like family and they take care of the each other and take care of the customers needs.

    Cons

    Too many untrained young people Management need more training in People Skills

    Advice to Management

    Talk to adults as adults and not your children, always put yourself in place of the associate and see what if feels like to be talked down to or yelled.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The benefits and programs you can get into are nice. Room to advance pretty easily if you make yourself known They seem to want to help their associates where they can (Homer Fund).

    Cons

    You can easily get lost in the sauce and not nowhere to go next. Another company that does all of it's training through Computer Based Learnings (ie 5+ days of videos and quizzes you won't remember.) Don't seem to really understand their associates strong suits and end up putting them just about anywhere.
