    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Large teamwork aspect from new hires all the way to some levels of upper management. Gives to disabled veterans and active military, as well as those effected by natural disasters or other forms of misfortune.

    Cons

    Depending on your department and location, there can be a constant fight for schedule hours. Cashiers/Customer Service positions also have a huge emphasis on opening credit accounts which can be a con depending on the person.

    Advice to Management

    Basically keep everything the same. Perhaps try to emphasis more consistency in management with varying locations.

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

    Pros

    provided a ham at Christmas and provided food when working on holidays

    Cons

    The management at the location where I worked was very poor: very political. They should have cleaned house and eliminated the inefficient workers, but instead, after completing my work I was expected to finish the work of the lazy workers. It was terrible.

    Advice to Management

    I have never seen a store manager pull a night shift in the seven years I worked there. You need to know what is going on with the night crew. Also, since the new hires are being started at a higher wage, the employees who have time with the company need to have their wages adjusted to compensate for the increase in the starting salary.

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

    Pros

    Pay is not bad compared to other local employers

    Cons

    Staffing can be inadequate for the number of customers to help. It is hard to give a customer all the assistance possible whenever you have several departments to cover. If you care about doing a good job, this can be stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the customer service levels when forecasting hours.
