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

    Pros

    Generally a great place, with plenty of very nice co-workers and excellent benefits

    Cons

    Low pay without a lot of options to increase your pay - if you don't fit a specific profile, you won't get promoted and will be limited to a very small pay increase every year

    Advice to Management

    Encourage the store managers to listen to the ASMs with regard to the associates - they are much more aware of the associate's abilities.

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

    Pros

    Great Environment, Friendly people, flexible hours

    Cons

    Terrible scheduling, often times one person is scheduled to close a department, leaving that person to finish all tasks by himself, Hiring is awful, management often hires Department supervisors that have no prior experience or knowledge of the department. They also refuse to fire lazy workers.

    Pros

    Working as a Frieght associate in the receiving department is rewarding. The management team recognizes the hard work and effort my team puts in every night. It's a great job to supplement your main income and offers a great work out on the job.

    Cons

    The job is physically demanding. It requires to move at a fast pace while handling various weight of merchandise. I wouldn't recommend this job for someone who is only looking for a paycheck. The hours can be daunting if you are not used to working nights.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at The Home Depot (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They used to have great benefits and a great stock buying program for associates.

    Cons

    They only cared about their bottom line and gave little regard to the associates who worked diligently to bring them success or renew their ragged public image. They had a lot of issues with proper time keeping and paying associates for actual time worked.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your associates and give credit where credit is due. Your lack of compassion will cost you someday because your style of management leaves much to be desired.

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

    Pros

    Most of my co-workers are great. Good managers.

    Cons

    Not enough hours, minimum wage. Worse thing is, they just recently cut part-timer's hours. I went from averaging 25 hours a week down to 12. Right before Christmas. I have another part time job, but it's hard to coordinate schedules since HD's changes every week.

    Advice to Management

    You wonder why you lose good people? Now you know.

    Pros

    paid time off, the management is nice, the co-workers are always friendly and helpful, a large and comfortable break room

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    stress speed of overall shopping experience more than barraging individual customers with questions, pay more, stress product knowledge and understanding more than leads and credit cards
