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

    Pros

    I like my 7-11 pm hour shift and the tea mwork of unloading the truck and stocking shelves

    Cons

    Sometimes less than 20 hrs per week scheduled but not a big "con" as I sometimes need a little more rest from the physical nature of unloading the trucks.

    Advice to Management

    Based on the conditions and challenge of the job itself, maybe a little extra per hour rate for the truck unloaders which is what I mostly enjoy doing.

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    bonuses
    paid vacations even with part timers
    for entry level job do start slightly higher than other lowly low skill jobs

    Cons

    departments not consistent in their recognition awards when company policy is they should be
    store takes advantage of employees
    allow employees to get away with missing work etc as long as friends (buddy buddy relationships)
    everything is a big procedure to get done for the littlest things more than needed
    people are promoted that clearly can't handle position
    injured on job those in charge didn't know procedure
    consistent problems with pay... always shorted 1-4 hrs once or twice a month which gets fixed but after jumping thru hoops to do so then waiting another 2 weeks to receive it

    Advice to Management

    -have employees that tell the truth
    -not have to jump thru hoops to get anything done
    -Employee services that returns calls
    -stop constantly changing rules as you go
    -be more consistent with vacations and time off etc. absolutely no reason to --stop giving long time employees vacation times during holidays while denying the same to newer hires as i saw that time and time again
    -get employees pay correct! its miserable to always have need correction and wait 2 more weeks to receive it

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good group of people on the freight team, can be fun

    Cons

    People that are lazy get homer awards and associate of the month and hard working people get nothing. They offer full time to favorites. Management favorites people

    Advice to Management

    DO NOT FAVORITE PEOPLE. —-> this happens and it causes issues.

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

    Pros

    They pay above minimum wage in my state and have always been very cool with working around my school schedule. They offer programs such as Leave of Absence and Paid Maternity Leave as well as offer yearly raises of about 33 cents. Easy enough to switch/learn new departments if you want to. Lots of "parties" and "food days" due to money given to store for "fun fund"

    Cons

    Some departments are hard to move up in. They are aggressively pro America and although my personal store was pretty liberal, Corporate seems to be quite Right Leaning. Corporate and company policy is pretty cultish. I was uncomfortable with casually homophobic, racist, ablest, and misogynistic remarks made by coworkers and customers in store.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more "Safe Space" atmosphere in the break area, and encourage diversity training/seminars.

    A decent wage, that is all.
