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

    Pros

    Part Time Benefits, flexible schedule and somewhat decent pay

    Cons

    They are very strict about missing any days regardless of the reason for the absence. You have to earn sick time and it takes a long time. Do not apply to this company unless you are serious about giving your all. They will not give any room for mistakes.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The ability to grow your career and advance in the company, the access to a great diverse benefits package, developing and learning new skills, the profit sharing bonuses and access to employee stock purchases. The stability of working for a successful industry leader and seeing the changes its making to cope with the future of the business.

    Cons

    Hours are long and constantly changing schedules makes work life balance a challenge. fixed schedules only apply to full time hourly not part time, management or salaried associates. Roles are expanded beyond specific job at short notice, expect to have to do everything and cover multiple areas of the business. Accountability is difficult to enforce at all levels expect to see standards applied for one individual but not another.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders not managers is what the company is looking for if you lack the first it will be a challenge to succeed.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time

    Pros

    Do you know that phrase "like a sponge"?That's how I behave!
    I get all classes online that allow me to learning something new, here we currently have classes for leadership monthly, I am anxious waiting to receive the orientations, exchange experiences and observe how my co-workers are managing to grow with the company.
    I do not want to be a simply sales associate- specializes in decor for a long time, I want to have the opportunity to prove to myself that I can get anywhere I want.
    I can not forget that we have examples of women who have started their careers like me and today are managers and Mrs. Ann-Marie Campbell Vice President for an example. (She is a perfect guide for me).
     These days someone asked me if I like to earn little, and if I like to work only part time.
    My answer?
    Home Depot is school for me.
    Thanks

    Cons

    The only thing I'm not happy...
    I still can not get a full time position.
    It is my understanding this is due "Company Policy".

    Advice to Management

    They should hire more full-time staff so we can better serve consumers!
