    My advice to any Manager is to steady the course and always do your best each and everyday, remember it is about the people you manage and not yourself

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time

    Pros

    helping the customer find product or solutions was always the most satisfying part of this job. The friendly engagements were always a great way to have the satisfaction of a job well done. Sales metrics were not difficult to achieve, and you establish a multitude of contacts with vendors, company management and customers.

    Cons

    sales floor was typically understaffed, fellow associates were there to fulfill the minimum requirements the job called for. your feet will hurt from walking on concrete all day. the roof had areas that leaked in rainy weather. high levels of product theft by customers.

    Advice to Management

    raise the pay, train associates and specialists to embrace the teamwork culture, staff properly!

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

    Pros

    They care about the employees and genuinely want you to succeed. I worked at two different stores and loved my experience with this company. I often tell people that I would still be there had I not moved to a place that doesn't have a store close enough to commute. I started as a cashier and was moved into the paint department. My coworkers were amazing and my managers went out of their way to help me any way they could. You could tell that they really cared about you. There are many benefits including bonuses, free lunches and holiday parties.

    Cons

    There aren't any in my experience

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
