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

    Pros

    Most of the people I work with are very nice. THD has a good benefit program for part time workers.

    Cons

    I have been there for 1 and a half years and find it difficult to get full time work even though they let go the only part timer in my department. I get many compliments from my peers, but management keeps telling me to keep doing what I am doing. When I ask about full time work I don't seem to get a straight answer.

    Advice to Management

    Be more direct in answers about full time employment.

    when making rules stick with them, management is more than giving out discounts to dissatisfied customers
