    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a great college job. Flexible hours, not too stressful if you have a busy schedule outside of work, and tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Pay is awful and management is more concerned with the bottom line than their employee's paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Wish they wouldn't emphasize how important profit sharing is compared to the employee's actual paycheck.

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

    Pros

    A couple nice managers, half the associates are great.

    Cons

    Horrible customers! Very rude and self entitled. Management allows people to get away with anything, the millennials are on phones constantly without any kind of consequence.
    Low hours, management nit picks for no reason. Department managers have the worst egos.

    Advice to Management

    The VOC is a nasty little weapon, stop nit picking the good employees. Get some strength to take care of the bad associates.

    Pros

    There is a high turnover rate, which means job openings are always there. As well, there are plenty of new faces and opportunities to network.

    Cons

    The hardest part of working here is dealing with some of the customers. Most of the people that come through are pleasant, but annoying customers are always a problem in customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t overwork part-time employees.

    Home Depot sees value in Seniors and retired contractors enough to hire them for customer service.
