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

    Pros

    Everyone whom I work with is so fun to be around. They make my job a lot easier and they're almost like family. I feel so welcomed and I've only been there for a few months.

    Cons

    Be mindful, you will make mistakes sometimes, but the employees will be happy to help you out so don't be afraid to ask questions.

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Used to get rewards. Monthly meetings were good.

    Cons

    No longer get rewards. Also very sexist,

    Advice to Management

    Move up hard workers that have worked longer instead of advancing new hires because of how sexy they look.

    Pros

    Nice place to work over all. They work with you when you a student. They at least at my location really do care about you and want you to succeed in what ever you do. They do feed you!

    Cons

    Management can be a little to much sometimes. Since they do all there hiring from Atlanta when employees are crap it takes for ever for them to get fired and its crazy. they hire some crazy people and it just is hard to do your job well sometimes due to the help that comes in.

    Advice to Management

    Think about who you are hiring, really question them. Think about who you promoting do they really fit the job well.

    Pros

    $HD stock is solid, decently well run firm by the numbers

    Cons

    Terrible people and culture, employees treated as a resource

    Advice to Management

    You can be smart about your employment costs without throwing every single employee under the bus at all times. Management literally treats everyone like a ticking time bomb, as soon as your hired you have a finite shelf life until you are expended.

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

    Pros

    The people - always been fortunate to work with nice people.

    Cons

    Micro Management. Some managers treat you like your a 5 year old. I manage a large custom wood working facility in my day job and it amazes me how some managers have no clue how to manage people.

    Advice to Management

    I've worked at the Home Depot for over 4 years and get paid less than $12 hourly part time. Each year in my review I bring up that I do not receive any additional compensation for being licensed to use all the machines in the Home Depot. I work with people that are paid several dollars an hour more than me and they can't operate a water tap! It's a huge responsibility when moving through a store full of distracted shoppers. They don't care. I was just told by management that to get a bigger pay increase I need to sign up credit card customers and sales leads - even though they just told me that I'm one of the safest and most responsible drivers in the store and that some others are terrifying. Many times I'm the only person in the store that can work certain machines. I've decided that I'm not renewing my machine certifications. If there are no operators in the store - too bad - I'll be busy focusing on what's important - credit card sign ups.

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

    Pros

    Some associates treat you like family, some loyal customers can be amazing and easy to form a retail relationship, benefits

    Cons

    Almost all customers at Customer service are rude and inconsiderate, assistant managers never help and one doesn't even know the computer system and will often make the job 10x more difficult by making parts of his job your job even when clearly packed with customers. Get yelled at a lot. pay is 11 dollars which is the starting pay for cashiers, do 10x the amount of work for the same pay. NOT WORTH THE AMOUNT OF STRESS FOR 11 DOLLARS. You have more jobs than you are supposed to and too much to keep up with and no respect from anyone

    Advice to Management

    Learn ESVS system thoroughly, when asked to come to the desk don't say you cant or try to get associated to call other people, we are calling the MANGER for a reason
