I worked at The Home Depot part-time (More than a year)
To be upfront, there's no good reason to work at the Home Depot, even as a part time employee; even the full-time employees look and act miserable! The scheduling is so "stuck", it seems as though you have to beg for adjustments, 2 months in advance.
If you truly need money in your pocket for the sake of extra income, especially if you're a student in school, then experience it for yourself.
I can't speak for all home depot (besides the way the company treats their employees), but while I was working at an acorn (small) store location:
-Gossip: It was TERRIBLE gossip; it was only magnified from my perspective, being mostly introverted.
-Raises: When I quit, literally quit my job, the company decided to give me a $.30 raise...I'm not kidding.
-Employee Reviews: This practically boiled down to how much butt kissing you did with your department manager. Again, me being introverted, I solely came to work to do my job; the customers gave me great compliments, and my task work was above what was required that day. Nevertheless, if management don't like you, it will show. I even heard the store manager talk to another employee about making a mistake of hiring me.
-Safety & Maintenance: I have many, MANY experiences about the disregard of safety practices at The Home Depot, even though they "teach" you. When I followed safety protocol, I "moved too slow" or "you really don't have to do that."
-Quality of Products: You easily become a used-car salesman...
Advice to Management
The store is overall terrible. The "triangle" of support isn't truly followed or taken seriously. The principles of the company has to change. There's this illusion of progress, even to those working full-time; they know they're stuck. Improve the working environment.

Easy going and people are friendly
Everyone is lazy because of low expectations.
If you work hard you will be taken advantage of.
