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

    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.

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

    Pros

    You get to work with wonderful people and for the most part good customers. The work environment also provides good learning opportunists, room for career advancement, merit based bonuses, profit sharing, holiday pay, as well as sick time and vacation time after the first year.

    Cons

    As a part time employee I found myself working around 39 hours a week to the fullest extent that was legal. You rarely get your breaks and lunches are normally pushed to the latest possible second. You will work every weekend and non-major holiday. In addition there is no stability with your working hours you can have a three day period where you open, close, then have a midshift. It leads to a quick burnout and a high turnover rate. However, I did love my job and if given the ability to have a stable schedule I would have stayed.

    Advice to Management

    Work more with your employees to create some seance of work-life balance

    Pros

    Fellow associates are great. Most very helpful. Seems very family oriented.

    Cons

    Terrible training and along with that just thrown out to the wolves. Then often put down for not knowing things. Understaffed, scheduled second week by myself to work the service desk and returns with not being trained at the desk... Everyone starting at the same pay rate is insane. Customer service desk is very stressful and VERY underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Better TRAINING before being sent out to flounder... Have had several customers commenting back “shame on The Home Depot” Fairer compensation based on your department not just a pay EVERY new employee gets.
