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

    Pros

    Being a part time cashier means I can be somewhat selective with the hours and days I work, except weekends. We are required to be available on Saturdays and Sundays. I was able to limit my availability to after 2 p.m. on Sundays for religious purposes. Working weekends is great for me because my husband works weekends. It's a relaxed atmosphere and I feel like I'm working with family.

    Cons

    Home Depot does require employees to work weekends. There are very few exceptions. The schedule is posted 4 weeks in advance, so last minute get-aways are difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Take a few minutes each day to make an effort to get to know the associates and thus help make them feel important.

    Pros

    Great company, I've come and gone from Home Depot throughout my life changes, and they have always rehired me.

    Cons

    its extremely fast passed, like you never stop.

    Advice to Management

    Check in with your employees, ask "Hey how was your weekend?" personal touches can go a long way for by-in.
