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

    Pros

    Being a cashier is basic work just scan things. If there are any problems you call the head cashier over to help out.

    Cons

    The breaks are too short. Usually just one 15 minute break per shift.

    Advice to Management

    Increase my pay the longer i work there

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

    Pros

    Fun place to work with the right leadership. Great employees. Great bonus structure and success sharing.

    Cons

    Work life balance 55 hours a week minimum is too much to maintain a happy balance in your life.

    Advice to Management

    No reason to have people that you are suppose to care about work 11 hours a day. Also employee discount would have been nice especially since you give military discount.

  5. ""Great pay for a retail sales associate job. Lots to learn""

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

    Pros

    Lots to learn about your certain department. Training is in depth if you take notes and you will definitely learn how to solve basic problems of your customers in your department. Depending on what store you are working in, you will have great supervisors and managers to guide you throughout your work/learning and helping customers solve problems. Sales associate jobs pays better than compared to other retail sales jobs, and that is a strong incentive for those who are going to college and want to work part time.

    Cons

    Sometimes, you are stuck helping customers and another person's shift in your department hasn't even started yet, you are left to skip your lunch. If a product is even slightly damaged, it has to be destroyed, I don't know why. You are working on a hard, concrete floor, so if you have the wrong kind of shoes, expect your joints to ache. Nothing different from working else where in retail, but you take what you can get in retail.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. An explanation to the new guys/gals about how to become a supervisor if they really wanted to work there full time could help you keep an employee for a long long time and make a great career out of the job.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company trained for every position like plumbing, forklift driver, glass cutting, etc. The company even trained on how to sell their products.

    Cons

    Do not get commission but you will get a nice bonus like Starbucks coffee cards or Dinner gift cards. The company re-inverse pay for traveling and catching a cab for early meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Most of stores need to hiring persons with degrees instead of just high school. The training can get very technical.

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

    Pros

    you get nothing out of a company that is ranking in well over 10+ billion a year

    Cons

    lowest overnight pay ever, 9 dollars starting out, but I have two years of experience at target

    Hiring manager told me that the starting pay was "9.50" regardless of how many years I put in with another company.

    Unorganized management

    communist overnight pay

    Advice to Management

    10+ billion a year, but you only pay 9 dollars for an overnight position (freight team member)
