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

    Pros

    I love working at The Home Depot! When I first started, our former store manager was very nice, warm, and welcoming. All of the assistant managers are fair. They recognize hard workers and they do not take advantage of their employees who do put in extra work. If you provide excellent customer service, deliver on your orange promise, and work your scheduled shifts they will reward you! With that being said, they will not tolerate laziness and constant socializing (we call it a "pumpkin patch") when there is always work to be done. I've worked at places where the managers or the owners show you no respect and they will take advantage of you as if you do not have a choice to change work jobs. They're always asking how you're doing and they will pull you aside if they think something is wrong or something's heavy on your mind. Not to mention the free lunches and brunches for the store. Oh and not to mention, success share!! I love my job and I've literally never said this about no job, ever!

    Cons

    It can get a little hectic. Sometimes customers will exaggerate on how long they've had to wait for assistance in hopes on getting a deal on an expensive appliance. Oh and having to hear a customer say "I'll just have to go to Lowes" when you can't give them what they want because it is not an in-stock item or they'll have to wait more than a day to get it.

    Advice to Management

    None at all. You all rock! You all make this job fun and enjoyable. Management and store associates are what make me love my orange-blooded family!!!! I'm actually in tears thinking about you guys!

    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

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

    Pros

    I love how the job allowed me to be interactive with many different customers. It also allowed me to help people find everything they could possibly need to complete a home project.

    Cons

    I worked almost every Friday Saturday and Sunday. I really don't have many cons about this position at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Consider letting employees work in different departments when the season changes.
