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

    Pros

    Their wages are competitive and the company has many incentives to get ahead in the company

    Cons

    I think there is a lot of favoritism in the company. So sometimes it's not what you know but, who you know.

    Advice to Management

    See your employees for what they are able to do and how well they do it. Don't base your opinions on who you know.

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement
    Work with your schedule

    Cons

    Get overworked because they're few people, and you're constantly getting moved around to fill departments with no one

    Hire more people, so the few don't get overworked

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

    Pros

    After hours mostly
    Great pay at $12
    Great and easy way to learn everything

    Cons

    Part time only unless you’re a supervisor
    30 hrs max
    Alternating 6 or 4 hour shifts

    Advice to Management

    Should allow freight team to have a full time position and come in for 8 hrs shifts and work left over freight or perform direct bay packdown. Which would keep overheads and clear and no old frieght interfering with getting that days frieght done.
