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

    Pros

    401K Plan, Matching after 1 year of service, 3.5% max matching for 5% contribution. Paid parental and/or maternal leave. Starting rate is 11$ an hour. Multiple medical, dental. vision benefits. Employee Stock Purchase Plan, 15% off. Free food on holidays, holiday pay, Christmas and Thanksgiving off. The schedules are made 3 weeks in advance, can accrue sick time each month, and vacation after certain amount of years, 1=1week, 2 years=2 week, 5 years=3 week, 15 years=4 weeks, 20 years=5 weeks. Open door policy with associates and managers, managers usually side with associates, tuition reimbursement and annual raises. It's a good career choice if you only have a high school diploma.

    Cons

    As a cashier, promoting the credit card is unnecessary but they're not to strict about getting certain quotas per cashier. Part Time hours can vary from 13 hours one week to 27 hours the next week, which doesn't help with being able to predict my paycheck. but Full Timers have a set schedule.

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

    Pros

    Best reasons to work there is because time will go by extremely fast . At Home Depot your always busy nonstop, especially on the weekends

    Cons

    Stressful , challenging because the supervisor are always on you to reach assignments they give you during the day

    Advice to Management

    Schedule more people in the paint department because two people can’t just be in there . They need two for customers service and one to be in the aisles cleaning up . That’s why the aisles always look like crap
