    I worked at The Home Depot part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Worked with some of the nicest co workers. Pay was good for a student.

    Cons

    Management was terrible, as a head cashier you open and close the store. A manager is "supposed" to help and supervise you in the process. I had one assitant manager that I closed with very frequently that would stay in the break room for hours until closing. Probably the laziest worker in the entire store and he was a manager. They schedule you outside of your availability. As a full time student working part time, I...

    Advice to Management

    Get managers who stay on the floor and help other associates manage and deal with customers. They schedule you outside of your availability. As a full time student working part time, I had a scheduling conflict just about every week. Our store was super understaffed especially in the front end department. If someone were to call off you would automatically be short handed. Pay more attention your scheduling.

  3. Depends on location

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

    Pros

    They know how to treat their employees, with respect and fairness. Training is very detailed and complete. You are not just thrown onto the floor unprepared. The customer comes first as it should be, without customers(happy customers)you have no business.

    Cons

    I can't wear my Chicago Bears cap, other than that no cons at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, it will get noticed by everyone in our community.

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company is very progressive in how it incentives work. Employees participate in profit sharing and stores a regionally grouped to provide support for regional-specific needs. Company does a good job of promoting within and management was well trained to handle the day to day needs.

    Cons

    Difficult inventory challenges. Management seems overworked and the electronic training is burdensome.

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate more hands-on training. Most departments require some level of experience (flooring, plumbing, paint) and the hands-on in-person training is more valuable than the electronic training. Regional specific leadership also seemed to have a lot of turnover.
