    Pros

    Great advancement opportunities, management receptive to feedback, well taken care of, great benefits even for part time

    Cons

    It's retail so if you're part time, you work evenings and most weekends. Also (at least in Alberta) must be available May long weekend and the weekend following - no time off approved for these times.

    I worked at Home Depot Canada part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    For part time work this is a great option for students and retirees. Very good corporate culture: great management, free food on holidays, quarterly meetings with profit sharing bonuses, and paid training (Sometimes off-site). Management is very flexible if you need to take time off or change your schedule. Working on the floor is a good way to keep in shape, learn about home improvement, and customer service. Management & corporate both have a great outlook on customer service; they allow the employee the flexibility to make things right, while also understanding that some customers cannot be pleased no matter how far you go for them. All of this resulted in myself being confident in what I was selling. Considering this is a part time job, Home Depot offers great insurance. HR is always easy to talk to for any questions or issues. Also, working in the lumber department does result in more tips than other departments, but you do need to earn them through some heavy lifting.

    Cons

    Pay is low, considering that some departments such as Building Materials + Lumber require you to be physically fit, trained to operate the saw & forklifts, and often help the parking attendants load vehicles. This job isn't for everyone and to be successful you need to have a willingness to learn what you sell. The pay should reflect the added training & physical labour, as well as the sometimes unhealthy tasks (Sweeping concrete & wood dust is never fun for your lungs). If it wasn't for the profit sharing & insurance I would rate the Compensation & Benefits as two stars, but due to those I have to give it a three. However you're better off working in another department unless you enjoy this kind of work!
