    Pros

    For a part time job, this was a great job.
    There wasn't any stress and the pay was decent.

    Cons

    Having to close, the store usually closes around 10PM and you won't be out until 11PM.

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

    Pros

    Its nice to have a 401k, benefits, access to computers and not a whole lot of micromanaging. They accommodate all schedule limitations and requests, will pay you an extra dollar an hour if you have experience or negotiate for it. You can manage your own 401k investments and contributions. They offer employee stock at a discount. They have discounts at all kinds of places for being an employee like at gyms and car dealerships. They feed you often (pizza, snacks, donuts, etc) and have fresh coffee all day.

    Cons

    They like to have several part timers rather than full timers. on your feet all day can be rough on the cement floors. lots and lots of customer questions with minimal training. Its learn as you go and can be overwhelming.

    Advice to Management

    Offer raises after a probationary period where you recognize who is serious about their job and does a great job providing excellent customer service. The once a year raise might not cut it as what you hire in at each year also rises (so its not a raise at all). Some are hired in for more than what you pay a long standing associate.

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

    Pros

    Friendly staff, hours were pretty flexible.

    Cons

    There's so many products it's hard to provide customers with information on everything. Some manual labor.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe an informational handbook for employees to help them navigate through product recommendations.

    Pros

    A lot of the people i worked with were very nice and always willing to help each other out. Great culture at this store outside of upper management.

    Cons

    Most of the management above the department manager level position. Weekend hours which is to be expected with retail

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with more respect or continue to lose the best ones to better jobs and companies.
