    I worked at The Home Depot part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The wage was better than other part-time positions in the area

    Cons

    As a cashier, you are being paid to ring people up and tidy up the area no more than 10 feet from the register. If you aren't doing either of these things, you will stand in the aisle being visible and no more. If you try to do additional things to make the store look better, etc. you will be scolded - possibly by a head cashier who is insulting and harasses other cashiers on a daily basis. Management's response is either, "She must have been having a bad day" or "Don't take it personally - she does that to everybody!".

    Advice to Management

    Take more interest in the treatment of some employees by other employees if you want to reduce turnover. Also try to be more considerate if some employees if they don't want a totally random schedule every week.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fun, Energetic, Always Changing. Co-workers usually share similar interests and are enjoyable to work with. The position will give you the opportunity to learn a lot about the various tools and services offered. The company will work with you on scheduling (i.e. school, military, LOA, personal reasons...) There are a lot of resources available to you, don't be afraid of talking with your regulars to really understand how certain tools work, and projects are accomplished. The company regularly has events to show their appreciation to it's employees. The company regularly has bonuses, twice a year you can usually expect to receive "Success Sharing" which depends on the stores overall performance. The store usually tries to cross train employees, so you will get the opportunity to grow and learn if you seek it! Great Benefits available to part-time and Full-Time alike.

    Cons

    Some members of management may not always agree with the way to do things. Hours vary depending on the season, especially during the winter. You may deal with some very mad customers. The system used to take-in and complete repairs, especially if sent out, seems to be complicated for no reason. There can be a serious lack of communication within the department, if it exists you will more than likely need to take the initiative. The rest of the store seems to be intimidated by the department which can unfortunately leads to little back-up during busy hours. Scheduling issues will arise, be prepared to be alone during some shifts with little back-up. if a dispute arises with a customer very rarely will management side with you.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend more communication with your employees, especially when it comes to policies, disputes, customer complaints. This lack of communication can lead to your employees not respecting you, and undermining your authority. In the short-term it is not that bad, but if it is lead unchecked it can lead to a greater disparity. Don't be afraid to go to the department it seems like the rest of the store is alienated from us, so you will have to take the initiative to bridge that gap. Train more willing associates to be back-ups, there are times where only one associate is working and there is a back up with no one scheduled, you will have to help mitigate that!!

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to meet new people, help customers with their projects, get a few ideas for your project. Long term benefits. In the beginning it was great, I was very motivated to work with Home Depot but over time true color started to show.

    Cons

    Part-time employees have to have an open availability so it’s difficult to get them to charge your availability if you don’t already go in there with the set availability you want. They have their favorites as to who can and can not do things .

    Advice to Management

    Just do better at being a manager
