    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time

    Pros

    Freedom to offer advice. Set hours. you get a bonus twice per year (such as it is).

    Cons

    Work does not match hourly income. Hard work. Other garden associates rely on you to do all the hard labor.

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

    Pros

    Because you have a need for a job to pay your bills but keep looking. And you can also meet and work with some good people.

    Cons

    They don't pay what they claim in the glass door app. They have very high expectations for the little that they pay and no night differential.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people the way you want to be treated

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

    Pros

    Pretty casual environment where if you do what your supposed to everything flows smoothly. They offer great benefits and I believe you get full access once your three months in and you can still get them if your part time.

    Cons

    Can be relatively physically demanding to most people especially when considerimg the pay. It's retail so not everybody's cup of tea.

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

    Pros

    Great part-time job for college students.
    Flexible hours. Only worked Friday's, Saturday's and Sundays.
    Gives an opportunity to promote your problem solving skills when helping customers with their home projects.

    Cons

    Tiresome, constantly dealt with impatient customers.
    Poor Management, store manager would change my schedule and give me a working schedule during my class schedule. He would do this repeatedly, even after I had explain him my availability hours.
