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

    Pros

    The Home Depot offers some great programs to help out associates in need, such as transportation and a place to stay.
    Also, they recognize the work you do.

    Cons

    There is much favortism in the store, you can get recognized and rewarded for your work, but many do not.
    The pay is fairly low, and your performance does not have any effect to your pay (word for for word from my managers).
    They also hire many mediocre workers.

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

    Pros

    Many co-workers are great people, you get to meet many new people and many of them are great people to know. You gain some knowledge over time when working for the company.

    Company offers paid vacation and paid sick time so they have some basic benefits.

    Company can be fun to work for at times.

    Cons

    Management allows customers to abuse its employees and stomp all over them quite often so that they can make "customers happy".

    The Home Depot seems to offer Little-to-No room for advancement.

    They cut hours like crazy!

    For another example: Many weeks they will call me saying that i'm not allowed to come into work for three days in a row because they think that it may rain later on in the week and so my 20 hours a week is now cut down to a maximum of 6-8 hours a week at times.

    They lie to you when they hire you, promising you much more hours than you will be getting and promising you many benefits that they make it impossible for you to receive.

    For example: I was promised a minimum of 30 hours a week when I accepted the job offer as a lumber associate. However on my first day of in-store-training they automatically changed me over to a order puller position that only gets 20 hours a week, they did so without my permission.

    For example: They tell people at hire that they can receive tuition benefits though the company and that doing so is a great benefit that they company offers its employees. Once hired they say you have to wait until you reach past 90 days, and then they tell you that you are not eligible for tuition benefits because you are part-time and only full-time employees are eligible for tuition benefits. So then when you apply to be moved to a full-time position with the company so that you can receive tuition benefits, management tells you that you are unable to work full-time for The Home Depot because you are a college student! Its a total SCAM.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to employees when you hire them., don't cut hours as much or at least let employees know upfront so that it doesn't become a horrible surprise that they are unable to afford their basic bills. Don't promise employees benefits and then make those benifits impossible for them to receive.
