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

    Pros

    The company is really good to its employees. They try to give the mothers Mothers’s Day off. They hang flags for all the branches of the military to try and honor veterans for Veteran’s Day, they have a bbq for Father’s Day, and they have a monthly department recognition program. They have a success sharing program. Management is very helpful and supportive. As long as you work and put effort into doing your job and offering great customer service, this is a wonderful company to work for. They offer help with tuition for both full and part time employees. Part time employees receive less, but they still offer something. They have ongoing training. There is always room for movement and promotions. I worked at the La Habra store. All the employees and management were a wonderful group of people to work for. I have recently transferred to a new store and so far it’s been great there as well.

    Cons

    You have to work with a lot of different personalities. You have to work with the general public. Sometimes people can be mean or rude. You have to rise above the situation and be the best person you can be to everyone. Sometimes people will be hired (a lot of young, college students) who don’t have the best work ethic. But that is the same as any other place of employment. Management is pretty observant. They know who is working diligently and who is not. The employees who don’t work as they should are dealt with appropriately. They either improve or leave.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing!
