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

    Pros

    Good people to work with, inside from the weather, seeing new people all the time, learning to use the lifts, all the different products

    Cons

    Lots of part timers, probably because of benefits

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your workers some more by having more full time workers. I looked at Lowes the other day and they are pretty competitive with their quality products and brighter cleaner store.

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

    Pros

    hours were flexible, always worked with me and i knew when the benefits were coming around, we could always talk to our upper management about anything

    Cons

    management was very harsh at times, and would go against store policy to get things done, and then when reviews came around they would get upset at the employee for doing what they were told to do

    Advice to Management

    coordinate better with each other before coming to the lower employees and changing things around five times before we finally get the final verdict

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

    Pros

    Got to work and focus mainly on making sure the store was set to it's proper layout. Virtually stress free job, which is a plus. Good part time job if you're attending school in the evenings.

    Cons

    Part time, less then sufficient income needed to be independent, or I should say safely independent.

    Advice to Management

    Admit more full-time employees.

    Pros

    Company is stable, not going out of business

    Way to much business for the staff on the floor. Management always says one thing yet does just the opposite. Most frustrating job I have ever had.

    Upper management needs to work in the store before they make decisions.
