    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is opportunity to move up if you express the desire to.
    Flexible hours.
    Vacation time for part-time workers.
    Provided that you're fine with talking to customers and comfortable in sales; can be a nice job.
    Good benefits IF you are full-time.

    Cons

    Some departments depending on your store are run terribly.
    Staff can choose favorites.
    If you aren't vocal about only doing the job your hired for you will be used for lot attendant, carry-outs etc.(This mostly applies to cashiers)

    Advice to Management

    Focus on treating all employees equally, training your staff well.

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

    Pros

    Full time 40 hrs per week, paid sick time and vacation.

    Cons

    Takes 3 years to get 401K match, HD is very cheap with wage increases to good workers, reviews are always late (monetary reviews are once a year). They can do better.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about your budget and your bonuses. Take care of good employees, you will benefit more in the long run.

    Pros

    OK pay (not really). Easy but annoying.

    Cons

    Disorganization, lack of hours, rude and unprofessional management. If you're caught even so much as drawing a breath you'll be told to get busy. You must constantly appear as though you're doing something . The "orange life" crap.
