I worked at The Home Depot full-time for more than a year

Pros

The benefits are very good. The team atmosphere at my store was GREAT when I started. Success sharing checks aren't bad either!

Cons

There was no real confidentiality within our district. I doubt it is like that everywhere.

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

    Pros

    -some positions come with a bit of flexibility, in certain stores/cultures
    -opportunity for advancement if you work hard, great for college students and new high school grads
    -great customer first driven company
    -great benefits to full timers

    Cons

    -tough economic times limit options stores have for hours, salaries, etc.
    -doing more with less makes for distracted management that easily neglects solid communication with employees, to include proper reviews, and attention to their needs
    -"customer first" sometimes means employees' credit is on the line without due process
    -limited hours and often slow moves to full time make entry level, and even seasoned associates make it difficult to make a living
    -limited benefits to those living off of part time employment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -more clear communication to employees; take care of ALL your people, really!
    -focus on lead generation/home services at every level, with real support to your lead generators, and give solid recognition to associates who generate leads
    -deliberately include your team in decision making process, create opportunities for for team members to use their diverse skills, creativity, and experience
