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

    Pros

    Pay is better than fast food
    Somewhat flexible and works well for college students
    Everyone gets benefits even part timers which is great
    They really try to celebrate employees when they can which often means food in the break-room

    Cons

    Managers are constantly up your butt about credit and cashier friendliness scores
    Hard to move up if you're young (older folks get preference)
    Mind numbing-ly dull-- half the job is standing on hard concrete floors for hours at a time with minimum social interaction
    Often very cold or very hot depending on the season and cashiers often work outside (in Garden)
    Strict and automated late system. 6 strikes in a 6 month period and your automatically fired.

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

    Pros

    Reviews every 6 months after your first review meeting you can ask for a raise

    Cons

    Whether or not you get the raise is partly determined by your "metrics". Your metrics are determined by your cashier friendliness score, how often you use the quantity key on quantities of less than 10 items, your scan percent which is how fast you scan items and complete a transaction, and a few other items I will add later that i can remember off the top of my head. Now your cashier friendliness score can make or break your metrics and your score is determined by the customers who fill out the surveys on the bottom of the home depot receipt.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the survey system so if a customer does not answer all of the survey questions that the cashier does not get a zero for their cashier friendliness score also expand the surveys so that the customer has the option to give reviews for specific departments rather than the whole store

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company always care about your break they are great in this area, better benefits for part time comparing to others companies.

    Cons

    Very low hourly pay, if you are a part time when the seat is down they cut hours.

    Advice to Management

    At Home Depot Managers and coworkers threat you very well. The only bad thing about this company is that they pay is too low. I did have to get food stamp when I work there.
