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

    Pros

    People you work with and meet on the job are great. Benefits are good, pay is not bad.

    Cons

    Late nights can be trying. Some of the management staff can be biased. Might just be my location though..

    Advice to Management

    Find out the true potential of your associates. So much wasted talent that could be put to better use if only they were utilized in other departments.

    Pros

    They were good with your schedule. Most people were really nice.

    Cons

    The store is designed to fail. It used to be a Kmart and then it was converted to a home depot. it is one shelf shorter than all other stores. It was literally shoving 10 pounds of crap into a 5 pound bag. They pay was horrible. it not so much the the stores fault... it was the company's fault.

    Advice to Management

    Don't promise someone who has been working their butt off and put through the meat grinder a big raise and then only give them an extra 60 cents.

    Pros

    There are opportunities to learn about all sorts of different areas of home improvement. The pay is decent compared to other retail jobs, and the customer base isn't all that obnoxious. Changing departments within a store helps keep the job interesting. The benefits are decent.

    Cons

    The people running the company are clearly idiots and that trickles down, inevitably. Your managers, and their bosses, are more likely to be "yes men" than competent, creative, etc. There is not genuine respect for the people at the bottom of the pay scale, who are the vast majority of the people working for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are generally are not as stupid as you suppose they are.
