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

    Pros

    Very interesting position, each day is different and can be chaotic. Exposed to a very diverse work environment and customer base. It is ALL about attitude and if you are willing it is a very interesting and challenging position.

    Cons

    Scheduling employees is a problem, it is either feast or famine! Pay is far less than what should be paid for this position.

    Advice to Management

    Generally they do a great job!

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, stable company. Great job if you are semi-retired and have other income.

    Cons

    Low pay, no sales incentives. Lack of management skills at store level.

    Advice to Management

    Start hiring more intelligent people in stores. Train managers how to manage people. Pay commissions or incentives to successful sales people. Provide a challenge for those who need it.

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

    Pros

    Very interesting, challenging and at times chaotic position. There was never a dull day. I loved working there. The management had a lot of faith and trust in the departments employees and respected the decisions that were made.

    Cons

    Very under staffed, underpaid for what the position entails, and the part time position just fell short of a few hours from being the hours required for a full time position.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be paid more.
