    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stock purchase plan, steady number of hours, medical, 401k, Christmas party, some free lunches and breakfast. Great job if you neither have a job or don’t need the money. Great job if you have no other prospects in life and want some steady work but don’t expect to retire at 66 unless you have a second job and invest your HD salary on the company stock.

    Cons

    Inexperienced management team, not much movement for older workers, very very, Did I say very? low pay for the workload and experience, a specialist should be making 25$ an hour and not 11$. success sharing is an insult to the associates, there are no safety apparatus other than gloves and eyeshade. Work is too straineous on the back. Store management have no freedoms for change, associate suggestions are not followed through. Management only recognize talent in the young. If you older, you will not get ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Older workers have more experience than the younger ones, give them a shot to lead and you will have better young future managers. You can’t expect a 30 year old to be a leader by coming through the ranks as being a great sale associate.

    Pros

    Overall the management is rather pleasant. They help you with all your needs and cooperate with you. I'm not a home depot employee but I'm a vendor at the Hillman Group and we cooperate perfectly. They help me with my ordering for merchandise at the store.

    Cons

    Of course its always one manager you will encounter that is a pain.

    Pros

    Learned a lot and got to work with some very nice people. Enjoyed my time there very much and may go back for a second stint.

    Cons

    None to speak of as it was a great place to work. Sometimes it was difficult to find parking in the parking lot.

    Pros

    employees promote a friendly, family-style environment
