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

    Pros

    Work environment is very friendly and welcoming. The pay is great for people with little to no sales experience. Scheduling was decent. Easy to grow within the company.

    Cons

    I found myself alone every once in a while when I was in the paint dpt. on busy days (although they try very hard to prevent that for customers' satisfaction). If you're not looking to work hard, lift heavy products, and always put the customers first this may not be the job for you.

    Pros

    Good company atmosphere, it's never a slow day if you like your day that way.

    Cons

    Could really use better access to things like forklift training. Having my forklift cetification would have made things better for me and the customers, but it took months for a class to be availble. It was annoying to always have to hunt down the 2-3 forklift people availbe per shift and pull them off what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Really good atmosphere, but I really think having more forklift operators would make things better both for employees and customers.
