    Advice to Management

    I love my job as a cashier, I love interacting with the customers, however it's a dead end job. Favoritism and Nepotism is 2 of the major problems working here, most everyone else is usually hired part time and turn over is very high, there are zero opportunities unless you stay long enough to transfer to another location. What I've seen several times since working here is a job is created by management and is not posted for other employees to apply for it and given to the person they want, which I consider very unethical. As far as scheduling goes, there are NEVER enough cashiers working due to scheduling incompetence and the front end supervisor and head cashier is never on the front end when needed, there are days when there is only one cashier on the front end, and you can not get any help from anyone, no other cashiers, no loading help and no help from management.

    Great for a student or retiree, but if you need the income to survive in the area you will want to look elsewhere.

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

    Pros

    The people you work with are great.

    Cons

    Not enough strength in my thumbs. Home Depot is transition to a semi online business model. They will never replace a full time employee position with anyone other than a part time person.

    Their goal is to get all employees to be part time so they can concentrate on a failed attempt to catch up to Amazon.

    The few full time employees are getting pulled apart trying to assist cutomers in two, three and sometimes four departments.

    Avarage annual raise is eighteen cents.

    Too bad. They used to treat people better.

    Advice to Management

    Give up.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, employees take time to get to know each other great culture/environment, some training (mostly from the aspect of selling, not very practical), management does not micromanage so long as you are working hard and they are supportive.

    Cons

    It is retail, and they are willing to work you as hard as you can

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful if the schedule was created considering rush times of the day. Fairly low compensation.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Set hours for Full-time employees, know schedule 3 weeks in advance, supportive when family issues arise. Fair time off police and vacation time. Always changing systems to keep up with technology.

    Cons

    On concrete floors for 8 hour shift with only break time and lunch time to sit down. Often understaffed even though we can be over hours for staffing, especially for cashiers. You can be the best at your job but it's rarely enough especially if you're not very good at promoting credit cars.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job at being positive with associates. Thank them for their efforts instead of asking for more. We can meet and exceed standards but it's never enough so do a better job at acknowledging successes!

    Pros

    Scheduling that works for me is the best.

    Cons

    This company has gone downhill on how it treats it employees. Pay rises have faltered and the work load expectations have increased. Management does not have the backs of the employees and the principals that the companies value so much are non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Arrogance doesn’t work well.
