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

    Pros

    Great co-workers and managers. Strong team spirit. Many opportunities for advancement.

    This company takes customer service and uses it like a set of tools; different people and deals for every person, but all working together for the bigger project.

    Cons

    Flexibility of schedule depending on department.

    The system used to set up schedules can be frustrating if you are not on a set schedule/ have less tenure. That being said, this can be a major problem if you are the newest member of the team and want a certain day of the week or holiday off.

    Advice to Management

    Please remember that turnover is a costly occurrence; don't treat entry-level employees as expendable tools, make them vital assets.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Consistent work with the flexibility to work whatever time you need.

    Cons

    The company no longer lives by the values that it claims. Management makes lots of promises and didn't ever live up to those promises.

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

    Pros

    Overall great culture and good vibes. Almost like a big family. The break room is a mini kitchen that you could cook your own meals in.

    Cons

    Not much besides raising the pay. These employees are so loyal. They deserve it.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a liveable wage and have more growth opportunities within if you want to stop your turnover rate. Utah housing is going up and it’s only fair.

    Awesome real people and simple job tasks and environment

    Slow growth hinders ability to pay competitively or give raises to hard working enployees

    Allow raises that are not limited to annual/semi-annual reviews to motivate associates to try their hardest.

    Pros

    Flexible hours when part time. The company is awesome, they care about the associate.

    Cons

    Sometimes customers can be difficult and rude. Management can sometimes forget what it was like to be a regular sales associate and asks you to do things by a specific time that only Superman could accomplish...

    Advice to Management

    Communicate between yourselves... I often get mixed messages between different managers.

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

    Pros

    Very flexible with your schedule, appear to be very nice and willing to help in the beginning, tuition reimbursement is decent, and other nice financial benefits.

    Cons

    Nobody there cares about you and how well you do, especially your managers. Everyone there will do what it takes for them to get to the top, regardless of how it makes you look or feel. The pay is crappy as well

    Advice to Management

    Recognize people for things they do well instead of only focusing on small things they do wrong. Give praise and respect the people below you, and they will respect you back.

    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.

    Pros

    They offer Great benefits and you learn a lot that will help you being a future home owner. The retail knowledge and customer service skills you learn are remarkable.

    Cons

    Management styles could lack experience or intelligence. If you don't have a good managers your work environment could be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Interview for management better and acknowledge all employees work. Don't choose favorites.

    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
