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

    Pros

    Work environment is very friendly and welcoming. The pay is great for people with little to no sales experience. Scheduling was decent. Easy to grow within the company.

    Cons

    I found myself alone every once in a while when I was in the paint dpt. on busy days (although they try very hard to prevent that for customers' satisfaction). If you're not looking to work hard, lift heavy products, and always put the customers first this may not be the job for you.
