    Pros

    At Home Depot they value diversity. Home Depot also has great advancement potential. You don't need a degree to advance within the company.

    The salary they pay is not enough for most people to survive on. They also need to do a better job with scheduling.

    Show appreciation to your employees and provide them with the necessary support so that they can reach the company's goals.

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

    Pros

    Very little micromanagement, once trained it's up to you to get work done.
    Management was relatively easy to work for.

    Cons

    After initial setup, difficult to get your weekly schedule changed by management.
    Not challenging work, though depending on what you're looking for that might not be bad, I would rate as "mind numbing".

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on hours worked during the week. I can only think of one example, but a part-time employee would work more hours than assigned during the week and then "need" to not come in on weekends in order to avoid overtime. Gaming the system upsets other employees and is unfair.
