    I worked at The Home Depot part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Steady work- the company isn't going anywhere so you'll always have a job.
    Easy to advance-make sure to read the cons
    I met a lot of really cool people and I learned a lot

    Cons

    Like I said it's easy to move up in this company, but the managers have to like you. I'm not talking about your work ethic. If you're a girl, it helps if you look good. If you're a guy, just try to be cool and funny. You'll become store manager in no time. Now, do you want to work here the rest of your life? I would definitely suggest you go into maintenance/construction work with the knowledge you gain from working here instead.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on your store managers. Some of the best people I have met in this business were cashiers or floor workers. The managers were all two faced liars.

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

    Pros

    The level of easy work, great interactions with customers as well as other associates above mediocre pay considering minimum wage in Tennessee is 7.25

    Cons

    Nothing really the pay is rather good considering that it’s a part time job starting at 10.75 and you aren’t subjected to a certain amount of hours. There have been weeks where I worked 35+ hours and I will say that those extra hours come in handy. I will say that the fact of always Being asked about other departments sucks. A lot of customers believe that you should know everything about thd product but that isn’t the case.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more pay for incoming specialists

    Pros

    Great job,with excellent benefits and 401k.Great work life balance, excellent condition workers.Always room to bonus if store is doing well.

    Management sucks,very two-faced,nothing is confidential. They show extreme favoritism and will promote from outside the company even when you are doing your job.Often short of staff and you find yourself coving multiple departments.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be friends with certain ones,stop dating on the job,stop throwing your employees under the bus to save yourself. ..

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

    Pros

    I like my co-workers....they're really friendly and understand where I'm coming from---even some of the MODs I've talked to.

    Cons

    I have a 2nd job that is full time. The whole point of working part time is so that it'd work around my actual money making job. PT doesn't pay the bills!!! But my store keeps "declining" my request and availability. I actually had to say I quit to even have them start working around my schedule. (It's a fixed schedule, not like it's ever changing!) They then agreed to work with me. Now, my family who lives out of town is coming to visit....I haven't seen them in 7yrs and they denied my request off! Which means, I probably will NOT be working for them much longer. I was put in the plumbing Dept knowing NOTHING and was then made to work by myself long before I finished my training. It's been a sink or swim situation, and I've been busting my butt to learn. Yet, even though I'm going above and beyond to learn and be a good employee and work with them, they REFUSE to work with me and it's really making me feel extremely unappreciated!!!

    Advice to Management

    Work with the employees who have other jobs, don't act like PT is going to pay the bills. And appreciate the people who are trying to stick around, even if you're not treating them with respect and like they have value!!!
