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

    Pros

    Very flexible with school schedules or if you'd like to take a vacation somewhere, or just need time off in general. The people are very friendly and have a good mix of ages. Management is very friendly as well and listen to whatever questions/needs you have. Overall a good company to work for. Not to mention paid sick and vacation time (as a part time worker).

    Cons

    Customers can be rude, but thats expected. If you're promoted, you won't be getting paid much more, and it can take quite a while to move up. Definitely not a place you choose as a career, but more so a job in the meantime while you work on your next goal.

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

    Pros

    I joined The Home Depot when I graduated high school. I've been there for 2 years on and off while I've been going to school. They were always flexible with me and school. I worked the weekends while I was going to school and was always welcomed back full time for breaks.

    Cons

    It is extremely mundane work, one way I kept positive was to try to have fun with the customers, it was really the only way you can stay positive.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to new ideas.

    Pros

    They work with your schedule, the other associates are all pretty awesome, there is always some sort of event happening that benefits our stores employees or other employees in need, and they have the best benefits for high school and college students

    Cons

    Not much other than some customers complain to you about other associates mistakes, but that happens in any retail position
