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

    Pros

    there were completely no pros to the job at all and no recognition to their employees at all.

    Cons

    everything from the workers to the managers are a complete joke the salary workers can clock in at whatever time they deem fit.

    Advice to Management

    the people you put in charge to keep all of your sale associates in align should be adequate and under surveillance especially your salaried workers.

    Pros

    Pays enough to live in a nice neighborhood. This job is a means to an end. My real focus is my business asset!

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Pay better wages because this company is doing very well. Also, have a leadership and accountability program versus disciplinary attendance program. Treat people like people, not dollar signs.

    Pros

    Steady job without much expectation for change. You will get more responsibilities and opportunity to advance, if you show loyalty.

    Cons

    The pay scale isn't really something to build a career on. Also, you definitely need to have patience in dealing with customers who really don't know what they're talking about.

    Advice to Management

    There seems to be a lot of turnover with employees, and I think this is because of the low pay scale. I know the game is all about profits, but quality help doesn't always come cheap.
