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

    Pros

    Home Depot is a great place to work. Every day when I get to work I am greeted by colleagues with high fives and fist bumps. It's also great to see a customer that comes into the store that you have helped before that wants to show you how well their project turned out. Another thing I love about the Home Depot is that the company is committed to helping veterans that served us through community service projects. There are great benefits even for part-time employees. For part-time is tuition assistance, paid vacation and sick time. You also have the option to enroll in a 401k, vision and dental plans. We are also offered free flu shots and Home Depot stock at 15% off. The Home Depot also has great bonuses for its employees. Twice a year we receive a success sharing check that is based on the performance of our store compared to its plan. We also receive Homer Awards. Homer Awards are awards that are given to associates that do an excellent job of providing customer service or living our other company values.

    Cons

    There are cons but not that many. One of the cons is that we do not receive an employee discount. For most people, the other benefits offered outway that con. Another con is that some of the management is not all that great at their jobs. But if you have good managers than you are all set.

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

    Pros

    The store I work at is great and everyone is helpful. I work part time in the merchandising execution team.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that after a year of working here, I still can't get full time status even though I have seen others go between full and part time starts at will.

    Advice to Management

    Offer full time to associates who want it rather than hire more part time associates

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very sociable work environment and great people to work with. It's always busy so time always goes by fast. You have freedom to walk around and engage with customer all the time and usually you are not micromanaged. You're able to take restroom break, or regular breaks at your choosing, granted it's within reasonable time. Always a fun busy environment. Management varies, some managers are very cool and some expect to see you busy doing something every second.

    Cons

    Sometimes there isn't enough coverage or help, usually in other department like plumbing, hardware or building materials. Garden and paint tend to be well staffed most of the time. Lots of lifting, work schedules sometime are not favorable, no weekend and holidays off (sometimes by very advanced requests) Pay is not super great, raises are small. In my opinion the best people are not the ones promoted, usually it's the ones that click with management that get promoted. Some Associates are super lazy and pass the puck or take long bathroom breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Promote those workers who are most knowledgeable and seasoned rather than the kids that are always sucking up. Place more people in the departments that need it the most and not just based on sales. Plumbing gets slammed with go backs and tons of customers with lengthy questions and they onl3 or 4 associates while garden has 15 associates working but no one needs help in those departments so associates just hang around or disappear for hours.
