    I worked at The Home Depot part-time

    Pros

    I recently left the company after seven months of cashiering on the front end. I actually really liked my job. I thought the management at the Vista store was fantastic! I worked with an awesome friendly crew on the floor. I loved the relaxed feel that was felt most the time and I loved the interaction with my customers.

    Cons

    There was some micromanaging going on with the head cashiers that was getting to be a bit out of hand. Being treated like a 12-year-old is not good for self-esteem or morale. I knew how to do my job with full confidence. They just needed to let me do my job instead of assuming I would make mistakes. There's a huge amount of focus on matrics, the number of customer surveys you did, and huge pressure to sell a lot of credit cards. If not for that I would still be employed there but I know the head cashiers motives will never change & I have a difference of what's important to my customers.

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

    Pros

    Lots of training and ability to move from one department to another should things get stale. Most associates are friendly.

    Cons

    The pay is not competitive and because of California minimum wage increases, raises rarely occur when moving laterally or up in hourly positions.
    Year round hiring signs at front door breeds resentment because existing associates feel they're worth chopped liver.
    Training is masked as educational however it is more safety focused to prevent injury and of course HD's bottom line.
    Asset protection is a joke and often falls upon the associates to call thieves out by giving good customer service yet are treated as if we are the ones responsible.

    Advice to Management

    Raise salaries, promote more and have a bit more faith in your employees.
