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

    Pros

    Very flexible hours if you are a part-timer. Can enter your availability into computer system, varying your schedule from week to week if necessary, as long as you are part-time. Full timers are required to work a regular schedule. Dental and vision benefits for part-timers. Decent insurance for full timers. Profit sharing 2x/year. Laid back environment.

    Cons

    Pay is very low, concrete floor is hard on your feet. Training is minimal and willy-nilly. Don't earn any paid vacation time until you've been there a full year. During early Spring season, they try to make you work more than part time, and when summer comes with new seasonal hires, they cut your hours down to the bone. No employee discount.

    Advice to Management

    Give more training to all associates, let them know what's going on in stores. Pay a decent wage!

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent Pay, Friendly workers, mostly friendly customer. I had decent hours, not everyone did though. The managers were friendly and easy to work with.

    Cons

    A bit of a pain, lots of heavy lifting. Customers are sometimes demanding of the loaders and get mad if there aren't enough of us.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any advice, the management I had to work with was great and they were all friendly.

    Not a company you can believe in to take care of it's people. Upper management hides behind their so-called "Value Wheel" and do not support their people.

    Don't be a hypocrite. Do what's right
