    I worked at The Home Depot as an intern (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere with people who care about your growth. Plenty of opportunities to grow in the company and leadership will help you get there.

    Cons

    More time in the internship. More connectivity to understand what the exact leadership of the company is. Very large company with many parts.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing great and making interns feel welcome. I thoroughly enjoyed the internship and suggest that the number of projects increase

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

    Pros

    This company cares about its employees. The Home Depot was one of the most positive place of employment I can remember from the start of my working career. There is room for advancement, to try new things, and they offer so many special things for their employees. If you work on a holiday, most of the stores supply your meal no matter what shift you work. There is also a fun day that each store throws and management serves the employees. I recommend The Home Depot, highly.

    Cons

    You usually have to start part-time and if there is a long list of people waiting to become full-time, you may have a longer wait that you hoped for. The only other thing is your schedule can change dramatically from week to week unless you made prior arrangements for a specific schedule and it was agreed upon by management and HR. You could be moved around as a cashier a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Try to recognize hard workers, not just pretty or those with a personality. Sometimes more quiet spirited employees are forgotten even when they are good at what they do.
