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

    Pros

    Paid sick time, paid vacation time, tuition reimbursement, great training, great work environment, honestly a place that just treats you like a working adult.

    Cons

    They make you push services onto customers to try and drive store leads which is pretty obnoxious, can really get in the way of just helping customers. Sometimes don't staff enough.

    Advice to Management

    Be available and knowledgeable.

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They care about the employees and genuinely want you to succeed. I worked at two different stores and loved my experience with this company. I often tell people that I would still be there had I not moved to a place that doesn't have a store close enough to commute. I started as a cashier and was moved into the paint department. My coworkers were amazing and my managers went out of their way to help me any way they could. You could tell that they really cared about you. There are many benefits including bonuses, free lunches and holiday parties.

    Cons

    There aren't any in my experience

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    The company itself is not all that bad.

    You have a friendly work environment when it comes to your other associates. There is the possibility of getting higher up in the company from with in.
    You can receive bonus's on how well you are working.

    Cons

    Scheduling is highly inconsistent.
    HR rep in the store did not follow through with requested days off, be that most have to be a month or more in advance.
    Management fluctuates, it is retail but they could be doing better.
    If your store's freight team is not on top of things then you have to handle the load.
    They miss lead your job requirements, making you have to do more than your position and salary are meant for.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on the money and go back to what you preach in your orientations. Take care of your associates (all of them) so that they can take care of your customers.
    Customers aren't always right, have more hands on situations where the associate has to deal with misleading and agitated customers.
    Make sure the scheduling is more consistent for happier and heather employees.

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Job was good, learned a lot. Customers were generally friendly and patient when we were busy. Able to get time off if you gave ample notice.
    Reasonable pay for part time retail.
    $50 wiggle room we were able to use for customer satisfaction without having to ask a manager.

    Cons

    Racist black managers toward white employees. Managers and supervisors completely unapproachable despite “open door policy”.
    Managers do not know how to talk to people or make announcements over the intercom; ive had customers complain to me about this.
    Ridiculous rules to follow.
    Rude HR/scheduler.
    Scheduler doesnt know what shes doing; either the department has every employee working at the same time or there is hardly anyone there.
    Makes a HUGE deal out of very minor cuts, bumps, bruises.
    Hires people for body count instead of by ability; small girl hired in paint department cant lift a 5-gallon bucket.
    NO IN STORE DISCOUNT

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking down to employees like theyre stupid.
    Get to know who your employees are in order to make yourself approachable. Employees would like to voice concerns.
    Hire for ability and not body count.
    Managers need to learn how to speak to people and not be racist toward white employees.
    When hiring, stop misleading people to believe they actually have a discount because they dont.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you prove yourself a competent employee, they are willing to help you out. They let me switch between full time and part time for college.
    They're pretty flexible with scheduling.
    Great people to work with. They provide associate appreciation via holifau psrties, barbeques, etc. Monetary would be preferred though.

    Cons

    Not the best pay, hard to get a decent raise. Obviously due to the nature of the job, a lot of receptive work e.g. stocking shelves. If you are a hard worker, you're going to do some running around for other departments because customer demand is pretty high here.

    Pros

    The Home Depot is such a flexible place of employment whether you're looking to work full-time or like in my case, a college student looking for a part-time job. The pay is very competitive and the people you work alongside of are great. Believe it or not I had some of my best days working at the Depot.

    Cons

    It takes a while to move up the ranks but it is possible.
