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

    Pros

    Great management
    Give food on holidays, like on 4th of July they had hotdogs and hamburgers
    Three weeks schedules so you can make plans

    Cons

    Pay - not much for the amount of work you do
    Sometimes left alone in your department so taking breaks can be difficult or finding help with the forklift can be problematic

    Advice to Management

    Try to have more people scheduled, more than one person at a department at one time

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

    Pros

    Company tries hard to create a good culture and make customers happy

    Cons

    Low wages for the hard work you put in - had my review given to me by someone who is hardly there when I work - each category of the review had 3 ratings and I received all "meets expectations" and it was disappointing because at least 1/2 of the categories I excelled in according to customers and my co-workers. No raise came with the review and I am now looking for another job. Below this review I selected would recommend to a friend but only for a temporary situation.

    Advice to Management

    Train your department heads better in giving reviews. I suggest giving employees the same form to fill out prior to their review and then compare when they meet with supervisor to discuss why they might see some areas difference. Also, need better IT to help associates find items when stocking. You have department heads that really play favorites. Also, you can tell that corporate needs to move operations people into more HR leadership positions. I can remember the book so time ago about firing your HR director and elevate successful operations people into the key HR and Organization Development roles.

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

    Pros

    Not a lot of physical work. Lot of time to get familiar with your job and to learn it.

    Cons

    A customer may come along and will (1) want to design a window, maybe a particularly difficult one such as a "garden window" and want it install as well. Until you're very familiar with all this you'll sweat it some.

    Advice to Management

    It is very important that people learn the store system. Before leaving I was flowcharting it in order to make it easier for people to learn it.
