    Pros

    Working at the home depot they provide a lot of incentives for you to want to do your job well. They make you feel important and valuable which is often rare in large retail companies. Part time employees receive benefits and also you are comsidered for a raise yearly.

    Cons

    Because its a large company, althiygh they make you feel valuable, you can get lost in the mix. Also they take their business very seriously and often let people go quickly for reasons anither business may not. Theyre turnover rate is high.

    Advice to Management

    Provide in class training rather than computer work which gets tiring and boring! Its difficult to retain anything from the computer.
