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

    Pros

    Decent pay for how hard the work is.
    Get to meet a lot of people in different fields.
    A lot of associates are nice.
    paid vacation time, 20 hours after one year and 40 hours after 2 years for part time.
    ASM and usually nice and understanding of situations
    Good benefits for full timers.

    Cons

    Get the occasional rude customers.
    no set schedule unless you're full time, even then it's hard to get a set schedule unless you're friends with the ASDS.
    No discount for working there.

    Advice to Management

    Make getting a set schedule easier for employee's and maybe bring back employee discounts.

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

    Pros

    The training they have is good if you are already pretty familiar with the material. I enjoy helping people figure out how to accomplish their project and find the right tools and parts.

    Cons

    Because the pay is barely above minimum wage and part timers don’t get any medical benefits or even an employee discount, there is a lot of turn over. Disappointing that they don’t value employees that have industry knowledge and have a passion for customer service. I love my work there, but get paid less than my son does bagging groceries.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. If a department supervisor is rude to customers and their employees they should find another job. They should be leading the moral of the team and demonstrating exceptional customer service.

    Pros

    Great place to make some extra cash while finishing up your studying. You learn a good amount about home appliances, gardening, and other departments within the store.

    Cons

    Hours are sometimes not as flexible. Even when you find someone to cover a shift management won't approve it.

    Friendly Management; Great benefits! Work hard and Jesus will help you succeed.

    If you work hard every day, then your supervisor will notice and there will not be any cons.

    Flexible with school schedules. Part time was amazing. I worked as few hours as possible to be able to fit in work. Work life there was fun. You all become one big family.

    Tedious work. You are stuck to one department so it becomes boring after a while.

    Flexible schedule. Not in store. You get paid daily rate as opposed to hourly. If you work less than 8hrs you still get same pay, if you work more, you get paid overtime. You get mileage reimbursement at IRS rate.

    You spent a lot of time driving in traffic.

    Advice to Management

    Have more contact with your employees.

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

    Pros

    Very little, I would say there is still some autonomy.

    Cons

    No compassion for employees. Home Depot (Services Division HDE) has completely destroyed work-life balance. With the new systems HD uses to allocate appointments and populate calendars there is no family life. Your are expected to have your calendar open 8AM to 8PM 6-7 days a week and be on call without pay. Driving 100 miles to run appointments is the norm, using your car and no mileage compensation. The pay has also been cut making it more expensive to run each appointment. Most of my years here at HD have been good, but with the recent changes it is clear work-life balance is gone. Advice to perspective employees? Look for a company with a more humane approach to business.

    Advice to Management

    Stop allowing profit and margins to supersede employee morale and wellbeing. Get rid of same day appointments and provide your SC's with a calendar that allows them time with their family. Quit affording managers the ability to pressure their employees to run same day appointments and keep their calendars open 7 days a week.
