Sales personnel was reduced due to sales after season(January-April). Although the on-line training was effective, time to complete it, was limited by the lack of time to access the system. Two employees were assigned active to the department, my hours went from 40 Part-time classification to 8 hours. Finally, lay-off. Currently working for another retail Corporation for three years as Store Clerk, Senior Cashier, merchandising, pricing control. Management is very cooperative, except for career opportunities.

Enjoyed a great job with terrific folks, but the pay was/is horrendous. I received full time employment and was promoted to two department head jobs in a year but still made less than a lot worker. If you are willing to spend several years waiting around your pay may improve, but probably best just to use them for what they are... a stepping stone to something better. It really does seem that is what HD employment is about anyway. Turnover is wild fast between massive firings and those of us who move on to something else the faces in the store only remains constant in a few areas.

The Gulfport, Ms store #2901 was great at first until management began to show who they really are. Management only cares about the numbers and if you don't get a customer to apply for a credit card you will receive a note in the system and then terminated. The working conditions are not great for the cashiers..the mats are cheap and there are a lot of women that are having back trouble due to standing on the cement floor for hours.

Hours were cut in half, and the only way to make them up was to work weekends. I was already working nights, didn't want to never see my family. Otherwise, I would've stayed... great benefits for part-timers
