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

    Pros

    The employees and management make this a friendly environment to work in. Advancement in the company can come quickly. Management really wants to see you succeed, and they do whatever they can to help the individual employee. Those who are going through tough times will be taken care of by the company, and there are monetary programs in place to make sure this happens. The company also participates in profit sharing.

    Cons

    Shifts range from four hours to nine hours, and almost all that time will be spent on your feet walking around on concrete floors.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! I have been working for the company for 10 months now and have loved it!

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

    Pros

    Meeting and helping people with their home improvement projects. Working with other associates who are eager to help the customer. Learning the pros and cons of the products that HD sells.

    Cons

    First and foremost is the pay. Minimum wage.
    Training is poor with the on-the-job training even poorer.
    Dealing with customers who are rude and demand your attention immediately, even if your helping another customer at the time.
    Requested time off hard to get.

    Advice to Management

    If you really want to keep good associates, you need to offer them more pay. Your “Success Sharing” is not really meaningful to most associates.

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

    Pros

    They reward you for good work by using "Homer Awards". If you've ever seen the patches that employees wear, that's what those are. There are different levels that you achieve and get monetary rewards for doing a good job. They also give "success sharing" which, depending on how well your store does in sales, is a bonus given to all employees for making sales plan. Not too many retailers give bonuses to part time employees or full time at that! Great environment and you're learning life skills. Each day is different and you're always learning!

    Cons

    Concrete floors are hard on your body but nothing a few insoles won't fix!

    Advice to Management

    Love the fact that I can move up through the company!

    Pros

    Good People, Multi-tasking literaly no day is the same.

    Cons

    Schedual...... You have to request off when you want to do or plan anything. The Home Depot has a policy that any full timers can not have any restrictions in there schduals... The Home Depot is open at 6-7 am (depending on the time of year) to 9-10pm (depending on the time of year) 7 day a week.... you can do the math.

    Advice to Management

    Allow some restrictions to full timers scheduals. Fill in with part timers. That way full timers can have a life outside of work.

    Pros

    It is a paying job with a company that has reasonable stability in this economy. Benefits are good and the available discounts through the web are very good.

    Cons

    The work schedule is all over the place. 6 to 3 one day and 2 to 11 the next. How can anyone have a life? Full time associates should be given more consistent schedules and part time people should be hired for odd hours.

    Advice to Management

    Make some sense on how you schedule your employees. Home Depot is a job, not your life.
