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

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, management, and District manager. Rewarded for a job well done. Flexible schedule. Always opportunity to pick up more hours. Plus they feed you lunch lol

    Cons

    Moody customers. Theft is a daily thing you have to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Have asset protection there daily, not just here and there. Be more strict on your return policy, so many things are being permitted to be returned that clearly state non-refumdable for example tinted paint.

    Advice to Management

    Take associate complaints seriously and don't sit around in your office when it is a bust work day and your needed on the floor. Have interviews with the associates int he store when doing your walks in the stores. Stop thinking that everything is under control, because it is not. Many department supervisors are not deserving of their jobs when they treat women with disrespect and wander around their store not being in...

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Can pick the hours you want to work. Most of the time the work is easy. Low stress and laidback. Co workers are nice and helpful. Easy hiring process. The managers are patient and helpful.

    Cons

    Part time work pays $12.00 per hour. No benefits or employee discount. Product training is poor. You have to learn on your own. The store is understaffed, at times you can be swamped with customers. The scheduling makes no sense. 12 hours one week. 20 plus hours the next week.

    Advice to Management

    Offer employees better training. Pay more and there we be less employee turn over.
