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

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, success sharing, working night allows for day activities.

    Cons

    The work is hard as it is a lot of physical labor, so unless you can't do some heavy lifting you won't have a problem.

    Advice to Management

    The store managers should connect more with the team members as the store manager Isn't always at the store, maybe only one day a week, and when they are there orders are still relayed through the assistant managers, so maybe talk some with the team members.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love that they always hire within so it's very easy to move up in the company.
    I've made a lot of wonderful friends here and if the store does well, they give great bonuses.
    The benefits are great too.

    Cons

    I sometimes work with some lazy associates and we have to pick up their slack.
    Need more associates to stay in their departments to help customers.

    Advice to Management

    Associates should be watched more strictly. They get away with too many things and no one gets help accountable.
