    I worked at The Home Depot part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Every other department is taking cared of. Some getting paid the same and being in chairs the whole day *cough* *Appliances *cough* that even get bothered when a customer asks them for help and interrupt their associate conversation.

    Cons

    You have a certain amount of time to pick orders, however... Most orders have to be picked very fast due to the amount that hits the phone(Buy online pick up in store, Deliveries, Special Orders, and Will-Call). This store and most stores I've talked to all have within 4-6 employees. Not enough for the amount of workload.
    Home depot sets no limits to customers. It could be 2000 bags of concrete or whatever. Sometimes there was pallets so few times was machine work(forklift, reach, etc), but most times were uneven or hand pick heavy items. Everyday after shift, you go home feet sore, back pain (even by following their SOP and Infocus training rutines), exhausted to come back the next day for the same horrible treatment, days off were sleep whole day because of how much stress and pain you had to go to, and still getting paid the same as other departments(maybe 50 cents more compared to new associates). You get written up if you don't get to pick an order that was set for delivery next day or same day before the delivery (doesn't matter how big it is), even if it's 30 minutes before your shift. I knew so many people with shift ending at 5PM that had to work all the way to 1 AM and 12AM because of these issues. At most those associates got a thank you. D94 Is the worst department you can ever work for, not even Amazon puts you in this amount of stress. ALL ASSOCIATES that join D94 either transfer or quit withing 3 months. I was in that department for 1 1/2 years and saw 17 associates either quit or beg to go to another department, even asking doctors to spread their concerns. HORRIBLE!!!
    Ever since the new addition to same day and next day, there was never a limit set per store.

    Advice to Management

    CORPORATE SHOULD CARE ABOUT THE BEHIND THE SCENE ASSOCIATES AND NOT KILL THEM WITH SO MUCH HEAVY LIFTING AND SET A LIMIT PER STORE ON HOW MANY ORDERS THEY GET FOR DELIVERIES (SAME DAY AND NEXT DAY) AND PER DAY. 8 DELIVERIES PER STORE MAX. OR INCREASE THE DEPARTMENT ASSOCIATES COUNT TO 9-15 per store.

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

    Pros

    You are outside on nice days

    Cons

    Inconsistent hours maybe $300 every 2wks b4 taxes. Advancement from lot associate is almost impossible. There is no full time positions for lot workers. You work all day outside in the cold and extreme heat. Loading concrete bags, sand, drywall as well as anything else the cashiers call you to do. This job sucked really bad and would never work at this location. The management was lazy and only saw them on the way to eat or smoke. Revolving door Woodbridge location

    Advice to Management

    Advance from within and more hours in the winter. Don't hire seasonal if you don't have hours for regular staff

    Pros

    part timers get a chance to change their availability for their schedule when they want
      this is a job for a part time college student. working full time is not worth the stress. the workload is not worth the pay.

    Cons

    lazy co workers
    entitled managers
    poor management
    customers are extremely rude
    pay is low for what the level of work is involved

    Advice to Management

    stop letting the power get to your head. some managers are complete jerks and feel like they are entitled. treating employees like garbage
