    I worked at The Home Depot part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Reliable hours with a team focused environment. The company really seems to take care of its people. Pay was generous as well.

    Cons

    As a freight associate we were often forgotten by management; A blessing and a curse.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget your night time freight associates! We were often neglected when parties or food was brought in.

    Former Employee - MET in Phila, PA

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Simpe enough job once you learn the in's and out's of everything. Set schedule, early start early finish. Overtime on Saturday offered when certain holidays approach. Fun working on seasonal sets, depending on the store culture you may have great coworkers. Get to see what items being marked down ahead of time or new to come in. The store comes together during the Christmas season.

    Cons

    Cliques, and pettiness, store always fueding with MET when things aren't right. Night team and days shifts of MET don't care for one another. Depending on the store culture, can have horrible co-workers. Really early start, in bed by 8pm every night. No work/life balance during the week, your too exhausted to do anything. No employee discount, hard to cross over to a store position once your on MET. Ugly uniform...
