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

    Pros

    The company was flexible with work schedule and usually had staffing needs met. Overall, it was a decent employer.

    Cons

    Department manager was often not around even when on duty or when things were crazy in the department. Pay was not very good and benefits were non-existent as most people were employed as part time but often worked full time or near full time hours.

    Advice to Management

    Be more present when times called for it or get help from loaders or lot employees to help at least keep aisles from getting cluttered at these times and when knowledgable employees were cutting wood or helping other customers find products they desired.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many benefits for part-time and full time employees including 401k matching. A few paid holidays. Employee recognition and bonus program. Company provides employees with tools to succeed. Training is thorough. Stores host free how-to clinics and community service events.

    Cons

    It is retail so unless you have experience in construction, decor, or management, you will likely start at a pay close to minimum wage. Sometimes difficult to move up because they like hiring supervisors from other home improvement competitors.

    Advice to Management

    There is an employee recognition program that is underutilized. Three of the four stores I worked at barely used the Homer Award program. It is an easy way to boost moral and reward hardworking employees

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

    Pros

    Knowledge driven position, minimal micro-management, quality employees and management, internal promotions

    Cons

    The work/employee balance can be stressful at times, particularly in the lumber department where most every action requires two employees and only one is scheduled regularly.

    Advice to Management

    The starting pay of 9.00/hr is decent but difficult to live on, however, Lowes a smaller company and competitor starts at 11.00/hr. Home Depot loses a number of quality employees to Lowes solely off of having a stronger pay range.

    Team oriented, work life balance, career opportunities if you work hard and ask for the challenge. Always apply yourself.

    Cons

    Pay, no negotiations on hourly employees, benefits are very expensive. No part time medical benefits. Only 25 hrs max if part time.

    Advice to Management

    Tell associates often of career opportunities.

    I worked at The Home Depot as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It has good pay for summer seasonal work, the highest outside of Lowes and SABIC in my area. Working with the same customers builds camaraderie and friendship.

    Cons

    There is a lot of training that has to be done before you even begin to work. That amount of training for a 3 month position is a little much.

    Advice to Management

    There is not enough communication between departments or between workers and upper management.

    Pros

    Great compensation. Lots of opportunity. Fast paced and fun. People are treated well. I started out making just over $6 an hour and am now close to 6 figures (with bonuses).

    Cons

    Hope you enjoy working weekends and holidays. Work-life balance is not much of an option. This is not the fault of the management staff, as it is inherent to the retail industry as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    I understand that this is a retail business and not much can be done about the weekends and holidays.
