Head Cashier (Current Employee), Lexington, KY – March 4, 2014
Pros: flexible hours that accommodated college schedule and great friends.
Cons: limited hours as a part time employee. no clear path to advancement.
A typical work day is 4-8 hrs in length. Duties are clear on each shift. There are always additional tasks that can be done. The first priority is customer service. Management is accessible for consultation when needed. Depending on the shift or day of the week, you may be the only one in your department or one of many.
While in college, I have worked – more... part-time at HD and learned many things regarding gardening, tools, home repair and construction projects, community outreach, and have gained personnel skills while serving on the workplace satisfaction committee to improve communication among staff and management. I have enjoyed using my rudimentary language skills in Spanish, French, and German to serve customers with limited English.
Management has offered many opportunities to learn and lead. I have made many friendships among my co-workers and enjoy the broad range of ages and backgrounds of the staff.
Working with customers is the most satisfying part of the job, but this is also the source of frustration when their demands exceed what the store allows, what is reasonable or possible.
The most enjoyable part of the job is learning constantly and working on public service projects sponsored by HD for community outreach. – less

Pros: walkable distance
awesome team got to work with many amazing coworkers and to my surprise customers as well. I was able to push sales and customer retention in spite of poor management (2 of 6 managers had desirable traits). my advice is find the people with people skills and let them present the problems and solutions you will find while working there
