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

    Pros

    Super nice people, good training, provided additional income for my family.

    Cons

    Standing on your feet for hours, hard laborious work, dirty work; everything is dusty and dirty. The store was always hot, even when it was cold outside. Some people do very little, while I worked my tail off which was frustrating. The training is very long, and ongoing. Everytime you turn around, you have training due. I know it's necessary but it wears on you. There is not much opportunity for advancement for those at the bottom. I would up being laid-off from my full-time work, and looked at HD positions available. I applied for a couple and had interviews. One obviously had someone already selected and my interview was a courtesy interview. The other was at the store where I was and was passed over by a young person, which is understandable but I was told that they felt that I would move on. I did after that, plus the pay is typical retail pay, and does not support a family, unless you are the Store Manager.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to the employees, and acknowledge their presence and the work that they do. Compliments go a long way, and many workers get burned out and leave, and all they need is to be noticed.

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

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling if you can cover in multiple roles

    Decent management

    Fair training

    Good benefits

    Cons

    Low pay but it is retail

    Improve your methods of assessment for department heads with less emphasis on how long they've been there and more on their team building skills.

    A poor manager change can KILL any existing chemistry within a smooth working store resulting in an increase in turnover. Make your decisions based on their management skill more than it's their time. They have to be people oriented with a healthy knack of personnel appraisal.

    Advice to Management

    Think long and hard before you throw a new manager into the mix at a smooth running store try increasing the bonus % if a manager is being effective and increasing the market, low morale brought out by a manager that does not match the personality of the store can impede customer service.

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

    Pros

    Pays over minimum wage, okay benefits for part-time employees. Maybe a decent job for a college kid or a retired person that wants part-time work.

    Cons

    Hours aren't steady (open one day, close the next)always short handed, company in general relies heavily on part-time employees. Lack of communication from management. Seems to be a pretty high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Full-time, well taken care of employees, tend to stick around longer and work harder. The company in general needs to take a look at it's business practices.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, diversity,

    Cons

    Pay, schedules accountability, work performance review and training

    Advice to Management

    Need follow up with ASM on how they are rating associates on they work performance, because they do not follow SOP and they are quick to pencil others and need to investigate why the morale at some store is low and that affects customer service.
