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

    Pros

    Meeting a few coworkers and learning more about handy work. Can be fast paced or extremely slow depending on the weather so there is some variation

    Cons

    You're just a number to them. You'll hopefully develop a good relationship with some of the employees but management is only there to pester you about selling credit cards and doc you for points if your a minute late or make someone upset. Very flaky feelings involved with this company. Same songs play over and over, management will take all the credit, favoritism is not hidden.. But is a paycheck at the end of the day. Sometimes are better than. Others but the stress outweighs everything.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to really show some appreciation to all the employees, not just cashier appreciation month which seems to happen 3 times a year and all they do is stand there take money and press buttons. Freight Teams are vastly unrecognized for the work they do. No freight no store yet when the company decides to bring in food for the employees, the night crew is stuck with the left overs that have been sitting in the break room and Flys have already taken their fair share. I know retail is a fast paced industry and demands need to be met but employees don't make enough for the amount of stress they endure. I seen a lady have a heart attack at the cash register and they expected her to work just as hard a week later. But most of us are still thankful for the opportunity.

  8. "Good Part Time job (if you use common sense)"

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

    Pros

    Great job if you think about it first. How often do you get a part time job in retail that pays more than minimum and a consistent work schedule plus good corporate benefits (all but comp. medical) including some paid time off. There are raises for those who show and stay and a few other perks, with only a some customer service. There are no hidden duties. But, think about what those duties are before applying. High turnover is due to employees not paying attention to the job they applied for. You unload trucks -not just once -several times- each week. Think about what is in the store. You unload paint, chemicals, boxes after boxes of supplies, etc. You will lift and sweat. You work M-F every week. Not just when there is no party at a friend's on Friday night. Its nights - all the time - to avoid getting in customers way. Go to a store and look at the shelves. they are high and low. Who do you think puts the stuff there - every night? Think. Needing to stock is a good thing. if stuff does not sell, the store would close - no job, no bonus. If you are on an earlier shift - you will run into customers with questions. You will need transportation to and from work every day.

    Cons

    Employees that don't show or quit mostly for reasons addressed above thus putting a burden on those there. No discount or employee purchase day.

    Advice to Management

    Require that candidates observe a typical night in the store before hiring.
