    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Great with benefits, even for part-timers.
    Great sense of camraderie.
    They put the associates ahead of the bottom line.

    Cons

    As in any retail environment, you have to deal with some unpleasant customers.
    Only allowed to request time off 90 days in advance.

    Advice to Management

    For the most part keep doing what you're doing. Only reason I didn't give five stars is because nobody is perfect.
