    I worked at The Home Depot part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This was a great job if you are a student in college that is independent and a self starter.

    Cons

    Tough to get on your feet when you are just starting. There is not always someone available to answer every little scenario question.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great pay, great location, great place to cut your teeth and grow fast.

    Cons

    A lot of turnover, pretty high stress and solid 50 hour work week expectation. I had 25 out of 40 team members leave the company or the group within 7 months of starting. Yikes!

    Advice to Management

    It's been a few years so hopefully there has been progress creating some stability in the Inventory, Planning, and Replenishment team.

    Former Employee - Cashier in Green Bay, WI
    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The wage was better than other part-time positions in the area

    Cons

    As a cashier, you are being paid to ring people up and tidy up the area no more than 10 feet from the register. If you aren't doing either of these things, you will stand in the aisle being visible and no more. If you try to do additional things to make the store look better, etc. you will be scolded - possibly by a head cashier who is insulting and harasses other cashiers on a daily basis. Management's response is either, "She must have been having a bad day" or "Don't take it personally - she does that to everybody!".

    Advice to Management

    Take more interest in the treatment of some employees by other employees if you want to reduce turnover. Also try to be more considerate if some employees if they don't want a totally random schedule every week.
