      I worked at The Home Depot part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      You are outside on nice days

      Cons

      Inconsistent hours maybe $300 every 2wks b4 taxes. Advancement from lot associate is almost impossible. There is no full time positions for lot workers. You work all day outside in the cold and extreme heat. Loading concrete bags, sand, drywall as well as anything else the cashiers call you to do. This job sucked really bad and would never work at this location. The management was lazy and only saw them on the way...

      Advance from within and more hours in the winter. Don't hire seasonal if you don't have hours for regular staff

      I have been working at The Home Depot part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Pretty flexible schedule for students and does offer tuition reimbursement!

      Cons

      It’s Manual labor and it can be taxing when it gets busy.

      They hire a lot of Part Time employees who have no prior experience. Everyone gets the same pay.

      I have been working at The Home Depot part-time for more 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.

    • This is an amazing place to work: great people, and I enjoy the work.

      I have been working at The Home Depot part-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

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

      Cons

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

      Advice to Management

      If an employee is struggling with any particular issue, give them some grace and help them to recover.

      I worked at The Home Depot part-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      You could pick up shifts sometimes to earn extra money. Nice (as in kind) management at my location. Schedule posted 2-3 weeks in advance.

      Cons

      Scheduled hours can change at the drop of a hat, and management doesn't tell you. This undermines the whole 2-3 week advanced notice. I tried to get full time. They kept cutting my hours when I was part time until I had to have a second job to survive. Then they used the excuse that I didn't have an open enough schedule to fill a full time position. Pay isn't great. Scheduled hours are hectic. Technically they can't...

      Advice to Management

      You always harp on about how you considered us the "Home Depot Family" but it never seemed sincere. Sales are down? You cut hours at the drop of a hat, often at the expense of short staffing the store. One person in a department during peak hours is not a good business model. One guy loading purchases from the garden center to the lumber bay, and all the grills in between, is going to make your customers impatient and...

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

      Pros

      - Hourly Pay - Taught Good Work Ethic - Flexible Hours - Free Food Overall, The Home Depot is a great first time job to work at. I would recommend anyone who wants to work here apply for anything, BUT Lot Associate. The Home Depot was extremely flexible with my availability to work, with some minor issues.

      Cons

      Speaking from experience as a Lot Associate I can say the bad outweighed the good. Certain people who worked as the Head Cashier, or Pro/Service Desk Associates were extremely rude/arrogant to Lot Associates. They would order you around like a grunt and make you do other departments jobs while they sat on their phones playing games, and/or talked to their fellow co workers. This may not seem like a problem, but when...
