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

    Pros

    Everyone whom I work with is so fun to be around. They make my job a lot easier and they're almost like family. I feel so welcomed and I've only been there for a few months.

    Cons

    Be mindful, you will make mistakes sometimes, but the employees will be happy to help you out so don't be afraid to ask questions.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people - always been fortunate to work with nice people.

    Cons

    Micro Management. Some managers treat you like your a 5 year old. I manage a large custom wood working facility in my day job and it amazes me how some managers have no clue how to manage people.

    Advice to Management

    I've worked at the Home Depot for over 4 years and get paid less than $12 hourly part time. Each year in my review I bring up that I do not receive any additional compensation for being licensed to use all the machines in the Home Depot. I work with people that are paid several dollars an hour more than me and they can't operate a water tap! It's a huge responsibility when moving through a store full of distracted shoppers. They don't care. I was just told by management that to get a bigger pay increase I need to sign up credit card customers and sales leads - even though they just told me that I'm one of the safest and most responsible drivers in the store and that some others are terrifying. Many times I'm the only person in the store that can work certain machines. I've decided that I'm not renewing my machine certifications. If there are no operators in the store - too bad - I'll be busy focusing on what's important - credit card sign ups.

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

    Pros

    Overall The company did not care about their employees; only sales, credit cards and the customers.

    Cons

    Good pay and a lot of hours

    Advice to Management

    More flexible and constructed schedule because people do have a life outside of your company such as school, another job, family, and be more open to employees concerns.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Under the right management, Home Depot was a great company. 12 years in, and mostly a good experience. Founding member of MET.

    Cons

    My last manager did not make it a fun place to work. He did not command greatness through leadership. He was a boss, never giving credit to me or my team. Since my leaving a week ago, 3 of my associates were let go. With others being written up.
