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

    Pros

    The pay is great. You get a lot of hours. Coworkers are very friendly and helpful. Training is very helpful.

    Cons

    The store I worked at had a problem with Management. Whenever we had a problem on the floor and had to call management, they would never want to help. They would always pass the problem off to someone else. Also, a lot of times they had problems with being flexible with your schedule. You had to work on their terms and whenever they wanted to schedule you. Some of the customers are horrible and extremely rude. The store I was at had a lot of things that needed fixing inside the store. Our keypads and cash registers would always break down in the middle of transactions which frustrated customers. My store also had a lot of favoritism.

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

    Pros

    Family emviroment. Will go the extra mile for employees. Does little things that can make a big difference. Fair benefits,

    Cons

    Family environment. Will not let people go despite very poor performance. Life work balance is rough but, it is retail. Butt kissing is rampant, favoritism is rampant. Its a moral killer. Not all HD stores are treated the same by corporate. Having a career due to restructuring is now nonexistent. Alao, need to be more on the leading edge of technology for retail.. You're running on 5+ year old junk...

    Advice to Management

    Time to fire the employees that are lazy and do little to nothing. Recent pay increase was nice but now you're at the same level as the competition. If you want to be the beat you must hire and keep the best by paying them more. Also, you have eliminated careers for full times due to recent restructuring. Not good... Remember. The store generate your revenue. Give them the best tools to do their jobs.
