    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.

    Pros

    The benefits at the Home Depot are good we have no store discounts but the fact of the homer fund for Associates worldwide is worth making a small donation every check.

    Cons

    The changes between shifts sometimes leave you wondering what the other associates did prior to you coming. Freight is a great team but your constantly cleaning up after someone else’s mess or mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Raises should be earned and not just given. Recognize the outstanding worker more often especially freight and receiving, they drives sales the most and take on jobs others won’t. They really work hard and never have a night home with their families like day or closing Associates.

    Pros

    No customers, no big bosses around just you & a couple other people.

    Cons

    Difficult schedule, only 40 cent raises for every year. Not to much money to be made here.
