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

    Pros

    Many benefits, like healthcare, success sharing, tuition reimbursement, PTO, and LOA. Good opportunities for advancement if you want to be in management or a leader ship role.

    Cons

    Sexism exists between co-workers and customers, sometimes associates are underappreciated for the work that they do, and placing too much of a workload on a limited amount of people in the department.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a pretty good job; however, I think they should be reminded every now and then - that their employees are people with emotions and not robots. So, please talk to them tactfully and be understanding.

    Pros

    Friendly staff, hours were pretty flexible.

    Cons

    There's so many products it's hard to provide customers with information on everything. Some manual labor.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe an informational handbook for employees to help them navigate through product recommendations.
