    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Sometimes you'll get great weather and exercise, and customers are usually grateful for your help.

    Cons

    Sometimes you'll get awful weather and punishing exercise, and associates from other departments are not grateful for your help, and avoid pitching in....you're going to be hung out to dry and the assumption is because you do manual labour, you're dumb.

    Advice to Management

    Lead from the front. Ask the lot guys how they're doing and how they can help/be helped (might be "standing around" because they're tired?), instead of dumping on them for things outside their control...."if you see a hole, fill a hole" means grab some carts, too.
