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

    Pros

    The company itself is not all that bad.

    You have a friendly work environment when it comes to your other associates. There is the possibility of getting higher up in the company from with in.
    You can receive bonus's on how well you are working.

    Cons

    Scheduling is highly inconsistent.
    HR rep in the store did not follow through with requested days off, be that most have to be a month or more in advance.
    Management fluctuates, it is retail but they could be doing better.
    If your store's freight team is not on top of things then you have to handle the load.
    They miss lead your job requirements, making you have to do more than your position and salary are meant for.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on the money and go back to what you preach in your orientations. Take care of your associates (all of them) so that they can take care of your customers.
    Customers aren't always right, have more hands on situations where the associate has to deal with misleading and agitated customers.
    Make sure the scheduling is more consistent for happier and heather employees.

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

    Pros

    Customers are ok to interact with and most co workers are cool.

    Cons

    Assistant managers and head cashiers are on extreme power trips, looked and talked to me like I was homeless

    Advice to Management

    The manager was a good guy who respected me, and if the people who he assigned as head cashiers and assistant managers had his attitude, my work output would have been better and so would my morale. I did so much dirty work there, I returned items to the store that customers left behind on accident over ten times , never once even got a thank you!! I understand that they have to enforce efficiency, but there is a better way to do it. Just saying things like "nice job today" or "keep it up" is all I ask for, is that so damn hard? They are all stupid retail monkeys who act like they are running the country, it's Home Depot for gods sake! College students look elsewhere trust me you'd rather be broke than depressed
