            I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for more than a year

            Pros

            Benefits are good, you might get lucky and get a good supervisor, and they can accommodate the hours to best fit your schedule.

            Cons

            The pay isn't that great for the exhausting amount of work you have to do, management does not always recognize your work, it's only you that is in charge of the entire store for machines to be fixed.

            Advice to Management

            Increase pay, and make the tech position not just one but two people to compensate for the excessive load.
