    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and the managers are extremely flexible with scheduling. You get a lot of hands on training and you learn about home repair. Best part is getting to know the shoppers.
    If you are a good worker they really help you advance in the company including going to school.

    Cons

    There are occasional scheduling conflicts and the corporate management of employees usually doesn't work well. You are encouraged to learn how to do your job by management but corporate wants you to be a certain type of employee which doesn't work.

    Advice to Management

    Bad employees ruin the fun for the good employees. There were plenty of times where I would stay 2 or 3 hours later finishing a project because another employee walked away and didn't want to work. I saw plenty of employees walk away because they got in trouble for someone else not doing their job.
    Like my supervisor once told me: "They are giving you only one paycheck. Don't do someone else's job for them".

    Pros

    Work culture is good at least in Houston (Blinds.com). No Vertical growth @houston office(blinds) or relocate to Atlanta.

    Cons

    Benefits are not so great. Especially health plans and you will find way better benefits in IT body shop companies. Ridiculously expensive.

    Pros

    A decent wage, that is all.

    You all suck! Try not sucking.

    Under no circumstances should a front end supervisor or head cashier tell a subordinate that cashiers and loaders 'don't need water' outside, or that they don't need a fan or heater.
