    Pros

    +benifites for both full-time and Part-time associates
    +great work environment
    +positive view of students and their future goals
    +have tuition assistance programs for post-secondary education
    +high safety standards, with thorough thraining
    +family like atmosphere promotes involvement not just in work but volunteer opportunity within the community run by the home depot

    Cons

    -still have in work politics lake everywhere else
    -due to the amount of customer service provided by the home depot, you run into a lot of people trying to take advantage of the system
    -schedules are created by a program, and thus you can have very odd work shift ranges
    -all time off needs to be booked four weeks in advance (which isn't unreasonable but can pose problems in some situations)
    -while training and safety is a priority, it can take some time to actually get trained on a machine (ranging from a few shifts to a few months depending on availability of a trainer certified employee having the same shift as you)

    Advice to Management

    The involvement of the management in this workplace is phenomenal.
    With strong communication with associates and clear and concise instructions I really have little to mention.

    But maybe prioritise getting newer associates trained sooner than later. Mostly since for my department specifically (Lumber/Building materials), I was not saw trained for the first 3 weeks. So any cuts needed had to be done by someone from another department when I had close shifts. Leading to long customer wait times.
