    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time

    Pros

    -Flexible hours for part time.
    -Great benefits
    -Skills learned are invaluable inside work and at home.

    Cons

    -Store is open almost all major holidays.
    -Pay is on the low end.

    Advice to Management

    If at all possible please don't open during major holiday's, associates would love to be with their family's etc... Thanksgiving, Easter and 4th of July. Or at the very least, close early and have paid time and a half. Besides that keep up the good work.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company culture and opportunity to grow, while the company is leading the industry. Very profitable and the success is from outages adding management by its senior leadership team.
    This is a merchandise focused company that will continue to deliver results and beat its competition

    Cons

    The company has developed a strong political based environment that is being driven by finance based associates that have little to no experience in a merchandising based company. Work life balance is at times a problem as resources are never evenly distributed to get the job done and the level of accountability varies across many departments and work groups

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Its a great place to start out. My particular location always hired good people that made my job easier. They are also very flexible with availability.

    Cons

    The cons are store management, particularly store managers and above. They sit in the backroom and don't help the sales team. They also don't pay a retail competitive wage.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example. You expect so much of employees but can't find the time to show them how it is done correctly.
