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

    Pros

    You get to work with wonderful people and for the most part good customers. The work environment also provides good learning opportunists, room for career advancement, merit based bonuses, profit sharing, holiday pay, as well as sick time and vacation time after the first year.

    Cons

    As a part time employee I found myself working around 39 hours a week to the fullest extent that was legal. You rarely get your breaks and lunches are normally pushed to the latest possible second. You will work every weekend and non-major holiday. In addition there is no stability with your working hours you can have a three day period where you open, close, then have a midshift. It leads to a quick burnout and a high turnover rate. However, I did love my job and if given the ability to have a stable schedule I would have stayed.

    Advice to Management

    Work more with your employees to create some seance of work-life balance

    Pros

    Fellow associates are great. Most very helpful. Seems very family oriented.

    Cons

    Terrible training and along with that just thrown out to the wolves. Then often put down for not knowing things. Understaffed, scheduled second week by myself to work the service desk and returns with not being trained at the desk... Everyone starting at the same pay rate is insane. Customer service desk is very stressful and VERY underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Better TRAINING before being sent out to flounder... Have had several customers commenting back “shame on The Home Depot” Fairer compensation based on your department not just a pay EVERY new employee gets.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Simple work with easy to learn tasks.

    Cons

    Lacking in benefits, no discounts for employees, and anyone with less than 5 years longevity are treated with little to no encouragement.

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

    Pros

    Plenty of work. A lot of training opportunities. Benefits. They acknowledge your achievements or service.

    Cons

    Understaffed. Training is in house, so you're on the clock to do it, and since they're understaffed they'll ask you to go out on the floor to work. Pay doesn't seem equal to the output of work. They don't acknowledge your achievements enough. Unless you're in their direct line of site, either by customer or manager input.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more. Hire more. Allow for training to be conducted outside of work. Have managers make it a point to be seen more. As, if I hardly see management I know they hardly see me

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

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Enjoyed the people I worked with. Learned a lot. Got time off to go back to school.

    Cons

    No employee discount. As is true with all retail, rude customers were always something I didn't enjoy helping. If you are nice and patient, I'll try harder to help you.

    Advice to Management

    Be nice to your employees, and don't ever talk down to them. Nothing would make me want to waste time more than management being jerks for no reason.
