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

    Pros

    The Home Depot has a solid moral compass. They aren't about sacrificing their ethics for the sake of a sale, which I love. They also hire a diverse group of people and give a lot back to the community. They offer a lot of benefits and little treats for their employees. Although they push their associates to meet quota, they're realistic about what can and can't be accomplished.

    Cons

    Home Depot has two different sides to it. Store associates and those of us considered "store support" who are payed by the vendors but work in the stores 100% of the time. I constantly hear about how store associates are stressed out by management and their hours are being rearranged a lot, cut, and they often are stretched thin due to lack of full staffing. "Store support" associates who do merchandising have it better than those who work in specific departments. However, you never really gain knowledge unless you have the time to look things up and read packaging.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting associates based off of favoritism.

    Pros

    Bonus checks, sick time pay and vacation pay even at part time! Flexible schedule, decent wage, awesome people to work with!

    Cons

    It's really hard to get full time , especially if your a woman... It's hard to advance in the company, but it is possible.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of hiring more part time people that may not last a month, give current part time employees the opportunity to go full time! Most of us work two jobs because we need a full time position.

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

    Pros

    Most people that work there are real fun and will help you out. Feels like a family and you will always look forward to working with the people there. You'll meet a lot of contractors that are actually willing to stay and talk to you about their jobs which in turns helps you attain the knowledge needed to assist other customers. You get to learn a lot about large companies that sell services and products and you are guaranteed to always take home some new knowledge every day. I could keep going but overall, it can be a demanding job, it can be very fast-paced, it can be stressful, but it is definitely worth it. You can also definitely move up to department head and management but it takes a lot of hard work and usually through years of service. It is worth it but it can take a very long time.

    Cons

    There is one con that every employee will experience and one that is up to chance. The first con pertains to the entitled customers. The customers that don't understand the meaning of "no" or "we don't provide that service". They will continue to raise their voices, use the typical "do you know who I am?" line that no one truly cares about, and they will always insist on talking to the manager only to be told the same thing you told them. They can be extremely frustrating here because often times the orders can be a couple of thousand dollars and so they will far more volatile. Know the rules and regulations, know what the problem is, and if you know for a fact what the answer is, then stick your ground and do not allow them to push you down. Stick your ground. The second con is up to chance. It has to do with terrible coworkers. I had the unfortunate opportunity to work with the worst associate in any job I've ever had. She messed up every other order, she lied to customers, she passed the blame onto others, she refused to solve customer problems unless she was told to by management (even then she rarely did). To put it simply, it was because of this one single associate that I began to dread going to work. I no longer had the motivation to because management refused to do anything about her and I was left alone to deal with her every. single. day. Worst time of my life. Point is, you never truly know who you will work with in a sales setting.

    Advice to Management

    If an associate reaches out to you about another associate that is causing a lot of problems, please do something about it. Don't just spank them on the hand and say "stop that". Actually discipline them.
