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

    Pros

    I worked at Home Depot as a Front End Cashier in the summer of 2014, and it was my first job. It was a great place to learn because the staff is really friendly and they are patient in helping you learn the ropes.

    Cons

    Occasionally, I would request days off on the system, more than 3 weeks in advance, and it would not get approved. This led to many scheduling conflicts for me.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe make it easier for employees to take a day off or change their shift if they have given proper notice time.

    Pros

    You own your development. Suck up culture if you want to be promoted. You outgrow your value. Good for a starter job.

    Cons

    Managers who know nothing about leadership run the dept. Disheartening! Number and profit oriented & focused. You wish you wouldn't have to baby sit them.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that, the best companies have the best people. You throw a chunk of meat to attract lions. Throw peanuts you get monkeys! The "yes men" continue dragging the organization down. Your wages are not fair for the work you expect done.

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement
    Some dental and vision coverage
    Active work
    Decent respect for you as a person

    Management is a mixed bag - not always competent, and managers often swap positions or move stores
    Hours aren't always available
    There isn't always enough staff during busy periods
    Computer training isn't very useful

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees that have been there for a while and trust they know what they're doing, especially if you are new to a section.

    Pros

    Benefits cover almost every thing, at the top or bottom of the company. Pay is best in class. Values system ensures respect, customer service, support for the community, care for employees, inclusiveness of diversity, latitude for people to be creative. Leadership training that is second to none. Leaders are accountable for their actions & perceptions of actions. Training and development for associates to make them experts in their interests. Tuition reimbursement programs. Differed Stock Purchase Program at a discounted rate. Profit sharing programs. Retirement savings programs. The list goes on.

    Cons

    Fluctuating shifts for every one. Working holidays, long weekends, if you don't like "work" this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.
