    Keep up the awesome work!

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

    Pros

    Busy atmosphere that makes the time go by quicker

    Cons

    One week I have 24 hours and the next week I have 12. It would be nice to have consistency. Some days they start me at 6 am and other days they start me at 6 pm. It would be nice to have a more consistent time schedule. Almost every time i try to request a modification to my availability it comes back and says "Denied"

    Advice to Management

    See my comments in Cons. Try to provide more consistent times and the same amount of hours each week. I'm one of the hardest working employees in my department, yet they will give more hours to the lazy non productive employees. I would be very afraid to depend on a lifetime career from HD

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

    Pros

    Management cared about people's lives. It wasn't the typical retail environment. Yes, budgets and comps mattered but so do the people. I really enjoyed my management, both at my store and above them within the region.

    Cons

    During peak season, it can be stressful. There's opportunities to earn overtime but often for supervisors, that would be forced on you because you wanted to take care of your department if someone didn't show up. Turnover is a big issue.

    Pros

    Friendly Helpful Staff. Flexible Hours.

    Cons

    Salary isn't enough for the length of time you are helping customers as well as standing/walking.

    Advice to Management

    Training before starting on the floor is great however, improvement is needed on floor training. There needs to be a lead associate assigned to new associates.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    recently started set shifts works very well for me and my family so hsppy the home depot finally is doing something to give people some normalcy in our lives

    Cons

    i=I feel that the person doing the same job title as me is not not required to do anything besides sit at the desk and sell. I also have quotas and goals, I am #2 in my district in sales and I do what is needed to keep the store stocked for the customer. Is it that because he is a man and I am a women that management says nothing total discrimination

    Advice to Management

    step up and take notice of the people who are doing the total job. compensate us for that. Hold dept supervisors responsible for making equal work for equal pay

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

    Pros

    It was my second job for over two years. It provided some extra money.

    Cons

    It's a large corporation that can do whatever it wants. I started out making $8.25 an hour here as a cashier. I was a 29 year old college grad, working here as a second job. Working another 20-30 hours a week here wasn't worth the extra money, what little I got. I eventually got "promoted" to lumber, and made $9.23, after my one year raise and "promotion". I became burnt out, exhausted, and eventually quit, after feeling unappreciated. It's a revolving door job. Too much work, for too little pay. And they expect you to be cheerful. You're better off working for a smaller company, where you're appreciated, than here. The level of work to become a manager isn't worth it.

    Advice to Management

    None. It's a big company, with so man layers of management, that they won't change.

    Pros

    There are nice people who work here and you do get to work by yourself some or most of the time.

    Cons

    The pay is bad and the hours are equally bad (starting at 5AM daily). The job also gets boring and can be stressful when there is a problem with the money.
