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

    Pros

    They pay above minimum wage in my state and have always been very cool with working around my school schedule. They offer programs such as Leave of Absence and Paid Maternity Leave as well as offer yearly raises of about 33 cents. Easy enough to switch/learn new departments if you want to. Lots of "parties" and "food days" due to money given to store for "fun fund"

    Cons

    Some departments are hard to move up in. They are aggressively pro America and although my personal store was pretty liberal, Corporate seems to be quite Right Leaning. Corporate and company policy is pretty cultish. I was uncomfortable with casually homophobic, racist, ablest, and misogynistic remarks made by coworkers and customers in store.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more "Safe Space" atmosphere in the break area, and encourage diversity training/seminars.
