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

    Pros

    You get to know where a lot of important parts and tools are, the great team work involved in helping customers. Engaging with carpenter's, plumbers, electricians, and welders, after a while, you get to guess what someone came I to home depot for. The connection between co-workers are professional and personal as you become friends outside of work, people want to constantly see you do well or ask if they can help in any way if someone is going through hardship. And with home depot being a corporate company, people can always be encouraged to do/learn more, and to escalate in the company with knowledge.

    Cons

    Rude customers, unsatisfying working conditions (like extreme heat & no water), last minute tasks that take away from my free time while trying to leave work, bad management, and poor attitudes from long work weeks.

    Advice to Management

    My manager was nice, always engaged in helping us whether it was to go up the corporate ladder or just an extra hand in remembering a few steps from trainings.

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

    Pros

    -Friendly
    -Everyone has a personality and not just dead beats
    -Small Bonus checks every 6 months
    -small 6 month raises
    -Lot of opportunities to climb the ranks if that's what you're aiming for.
    -Flexibility

    Cons

    -Management sometimes doesn't know what to do
    -There are people who just don't work
    -Messy for a company who teaches that safety is a priority
    -Product count is never right

    Advice to Management

    Despite how long it would take change things for the better not just make everything make "sense". Organize the store and learn to be a role model otherwise the store will never change. Enforce the fact that everyone carries the store because right now it's just a handful of people and they're getting no recognition.
