    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, good benefits, overall good company to work for

    Cons

    Training was done mostly on the computer with not much practical training (at least for my position). Hiring employees for the right positions could also use work.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on training directly with new employees, actively guiding them more

    Many learning opportunities. Really flexible hours For part timers. Vacation hours after first year & increases throughout the years. 401k and many other health benefits. Don’t necessarily have to know everything, you learn about every department every day.

    Cons

    The yearly raise are very little to no raise. 1 man army is a common thing no matter what department you work in. Customers expect you to know everything.

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Sick time, personal time, and vacation time. Tuition reimbursement is available for anyone seeking any type of business degree. 401K and decent benefits.

    Cons

    Low pay/salaries. Required to work weekends (excluding prondesk employees). Part timers are scheduled non-consistent shifts. Tough to move up in the company because many employees are brought in from other stores to fill a position. Promoting from within is rare.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more coverage in all departments. Hiring more employees wouldn’t hurt the company and would more so be beneficial.

    Pros

    Benifits of
    Vision and dental insurance is good
    Has well life insurance

    Cons

    I have been working for Home Depot for over a 3 years and they never hire me full time
    They have fav when it comes to
    Their employers
    They know I have a child to support and struggling and never offer me a full time, I have been working my butt of there, when they need me I will be there
    I show great customer service has well
    I hate how when some one can make up lies and report you in cooperate you can get fired
    I see that all the time
    When I was working there I dealt with a lot of bullying
    Management didn't do anything about it
    A lot of people in there are petty the funny thing they are older than me
    I dealt with it ignore it
    But don't work in Millenia mall Home Depot
    Worst
    I was happy that I quite there it was a stress free for me
    I finally found something full time and a environment very relaxing
    Oh and the medical insurance sucks
    They take out like $200 off every pay check and only cover $70

    Advice to Management

    Stop having fav and treat your employers equality

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I definitely enjoyed working in an environment where I felt I was helping people everyday. I felt that I helped out in each personal project that every customer, who I encountered, ask for help with.

    Cons

    I felt like I did many people's jobs; I had many lazy coworkers. Also, the management was terrible. Was there for five years and only had one good manager. All the others, especially the store manager, were terrible. He didn't /doesn't care about anyone except the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to sympathize with your employees. I was in a near fatal car accident while working with the company, and one of my aunts passed away. Only one manager cared to genuinely ask me how I was feeling both physically, mentally, and emotionally. The rest of them were pathetic and never really made it a joy to work under them. They didn't care how I was doing as a person, only cared about my production as an employee.

    Pros

    The benefits are nice and you are educated on the products in your department, which can be used in the future.

    Cons

    If you are in a department other than Receiving, you almost always have to work weekends unless you request off several weeks in advance and it is approved by Human Resources.

    Advice to Management

    Equally distribute work between same level employees. Too many workers that have been there several years and talk back to management and refuse to do work because "they've been there too long to have to do that stuff".
