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

    Pros

    The people are great to work with in a positive and productive environment. Promotion isn't far from reach in a relatively short period of time. Your time here is what you make of it, and is dictated on your personal goals for success

    Cons

    Wages are less than they should be for the work that is expected of everyone. Always understaffed even with new hires at high populated locations. Not enough hours if part time except during spring and early summer months.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support your team and actually teach and communicate with those under you. Being the boss when need be, but also balancing it with being approachable. Lead by example and don't forget you are in the spotlight, because your associates watch the things you do and say but also what you don't.
