    Pros

    Very good company to learn home improvement and can be fun to work, but very busy. I would defintely go back for part-time work.

    Cons

    Work schedules usual require employees to work weekends. I only had three full weekends off in almost two years of working there.

    Advice to Management

    Getting rid of Nardelli was the first big step to becoming the company that the founders would have wanted to see.

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

    Pros

    It is a good part-time job for someone going to college.

    Cons

    Heavens forbid if you are sick, everyone acts as though it is the end of the world. No room for growth. Popularity contest. If you are not liked, you will be targeted by managers.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the high school attitude when it comes to promotions. Pick the people who are right for the job, not the ones who are the 'cool kids'.
