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

    Pros

    You can learn how to do ANYTHING there! Gaining experience with the company in order to move up the ladder in the company is easy. They tend to hire from within for higher level positions.

    Cons

    I heard most new employees complain about getting too few hours when they started out. There was a pretty high turnover rate but my experience was awesome!

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

    Pros

    Big store with 1,000's of items which means there is always something new to learn. They have an excellent training program which continues to be updated throughout your employment.

    Cons

    Very little flexibility in punching the clock. If you are late 3 times, you are fired.

    Advice to Management

    Have more flexibility in punching the clock. You would greatly reduce your turnover in employees.

    Pros

    Great people, atmosphere is fast and hard work is there for those that want it. Plenty there that get by with bare minimum.

    Allow your uppers to ride you and stand up for your people. New district managers that harp on successful stores please learn now to fix what isnt broke.

    HR more responsive to employees, promote from within, the better managers I have worked under are ones that worked their way up from the floor

    High-school like atmosphere
    Underhanded tactics

    Learn better people skills, you put too much emphasis on the numbers and not the people that help you obtain those numbers.
