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

    Pros

    The pros are the hours. Four ten hour shifts (No mandatory OT) with occasional optional overtime on the weekends. The associates at Home Depot are fantastic. Some of the best people I've worked with.

    Cons

    Management, on the other hand, leaves something to be desired. Perhaps this is universal but there is a such a disconnect in knowledge between the associates and the management, that it is at times laughable. Not that I expect the supervisors to poses a similar level of knowledge to someone who performs a given task on a daily basis, just that a greater level of knowledge would be appreciated. This is especially true given that every thirty seconds when the supervisors perceive something is wrong, even when it isn't, they're calling you up on the radio asking you why such-and-such is doing this or that. Extremely annoying. Just let me do my job and keep talking to the other supervisors. It's hard enough under time pressures to do my job in such tight situations without having, at the same time mind you, to develop a polemic for why I'm doing what I'm doing against the supervisor. Also the pay is only half-way decent. Better than Amazon for sure, but that's not saying much.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging. Let your employees do their damn jobs which is what they're payed to do. Also, either actually listen to them, or quit pretending to listen to them because it's awful It's patronizing.

    I worked at The Home Depot part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In general the Home Depot is an outstanding company that has an honest, and admirable endeavor of becoming the worlds best customer service retailer.

    Work hours are consistent, and schedules are very accommodating within their website.

    It is an outstanding place to gain and learn new skills trough various job responsibilities.

     Mobility is generally easy within 6 months to a year, and there are opportunities to become a Department Head once a slot opens.

    There are good benefits for full time employees with dental, vision, and health care options. For part-time employees there are some stock options and other deals explained by the HR.

    Cons

    Pay in general is not very good in this area. (Subject depends significantly on store management and market in location)

    This job is ideal for: college students, retired individuals, or individuals looking for a little extra cash. However, if you are looking to make a living pay is not enough unless your intentions are to move up to Department Head or Assistant Manager.

    Other than that many times hours will be limited to having 1 person on the floor making it potentially stressful to some when 5th hours come around.

    Advice to Management

    From experience in my area since 2008 many employees have expressed concerns on management where many have left the company. From my experience most have issues with the amount of work and responsibility for very low pay, or significant cut in hours. Noting the company goals are to become the worlds best customer service retail business it would be wise to invest in employees who are the ones contacting customers directly. This will require more from HR to hire only the best, but as long as associates are payed their market value, and standards are put in place that goal may actually become a reality. In essence listen to your employees and serve them with outstanding leadership taking care of each other. Simply live by the Orange Life and make it an everyday goal with honor courage, and commitment.

    Pros

    Advancement opportunity
    Good-coworkers
    Easy job
    Overall company culture

    Cons

    Bad scheduling
    Management makes or breaks the job. For a $100 billion company, Home Depot sure is cheap. Always dimming the lights in the store (we have no control over it) it gets so dark you really can’t read what you’re trying to buy and customers are always complaining. Takes much longer to restock because it’s so dark. I work at one of the highest sales volume stores in the district and they are always asking people to stay/come in because they don’t know how to schedule enough people. Unacceptable.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t promote associates to DS/ASM just because you like them. Promote the right person for the job. Some of these managers have no business being in their positions and don’t even know how to talk to people.
