    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Set hours for Full-time employees, know schedule 3 weeks in advance, supportive when family issues arise. Fair time off police and vacation time. Always changing systems to keep up with technology.

    Cons

    On concrete floors for 8 hour shift with only break time and lunch time to sit down. Often understaffed even though we can be over hours for staffing, especially for cashiers. You can be the best at your job but it's rarely enough especially if you're not very good at promoting credit cars.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job at being positive with associates. Thank them for their efforts instead of asking for more. We can meet and exceed standards but it's never enough so do a better job at acknowledging successes!

    Pros

    Scheduling that works for me is the best.

    Cons

    This company has gone downhill on how it treats it employees. Pay rises have faltered and the work load expectations have increased. Management does not have the backs of the employees and the principals that the companies value so much are non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Arrogance doesn’t work well.

    Pros

    Great with benefits, even for part-timers.
    Great sense of camraderie.
    They put the associates ahead of the bottom line.

    Cons

    As in any retail environment, you have to deal with some unpleasant customers.
    Only allowed to request time off 90 days in advance.

    Advice to Management

    For the most part keep doing what you're doing. Only reason I didn't give five stars is because nobody is perfect.
