    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible schedule, ok salary

    Cons

    Depending on your manager and/or district manager, you can be required to work 6 to 7 days a week, 70 to 80 hours per week. They preach about work life balance, but how is that possible 80 hours a week?

    Advice to Management

    Give your assistant managers a break some time.

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

    Pros

    -Starting pay for a sales associate is highly competitive in the retail field, about $10/hr
    -You learn a lot, whether it is useful information or not to you will depend on the type of person you are and what department you work on
    -The work environment fosters a good bond between your fellow associates and your supervisor, you all work together to be the "best" department in the store
    -Offered a lot of overtime, which is a big pro if you want more hours/money (see cons however)

    Cons

    -If you are a male expect to be used like a work horse, especially if you are in a labor intensive department such as Seasonal or Lumber; it wasn't uncommon for me to be the only male in my department during a shift which means you are expected to do almost all of the heavy lifting on your own
    -Customers expect a lot of you, one of my favorite running jokes was to say "if I could do that don't you think I'd be doing that for a living instead of working here?"; ex: "how do you build a deck?"
    -Manangement takes a lot of shortcuts throughout the month that make the store a living Hell when the district manager comes for an inspection because they have to correct a month's worth of mistakes in 2 days
    -Offered a lot of overtime, however if you decline they will deem you lazy; I have a very busy life I planned around my work hours so I often had to decline their offers which caused tension
