    Pros

    Laid back co workers, Active workplace, Better than minimum wage starting pay, They hire special needs individuals (pro and con)

    Cons

    Rude customers, Management isn't always on the same page, Working weekends is "non negotiable" . I love that they hire special needs individuals but sometimes they don't perform their job so you are left to pick up the slack.

    Advice to Management

    Communication between and in departments needs some help, maybe make it a requirement that every associate has a walkie talkie and every department has a channel on said walkie talkies.

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

    Pros

    You have a lot of flexibility when it comes to hours and working around them.
    They will do their best to be flexible with your schedule, especially if you're a student in school.
    This job has a lot of room to grow.
    A lot of friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful coworkers.
    You learn a lot from the customers you help within the aisles, as you go through your day.

    Cons

    No Union.
    Partial Favoritism.
    As a part timer the contract clearly states that you can be scheduled anywhere from '0 - 29 hours per week', so read your contract carefully before applying for a job in the Home Depot.
    Customers have lie about a worker's Poor Customer Service skills, or Lack of Good Customer Service skills just to get a Worker fired.
    Some coworkers will send in their family or friends to lie on other coworkers to get them fired aswell.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting a certain cashiers Regular work hours down, just to hire new staff. Try to do a better job of keeping everyone's motives and morals on the right path. Learn that those who are sucking up to you, don't necessarily mean they have the Job's/ your best intentions at heart.
    Reward those workers who work diligently with great values to the stores quality, and outstanding customer communication.
