Well, not wanting any serious jobs for the summer while taking classes, I figured I would apply at Home Depot. As a recently separated service medal veteran, I am guessing is the main reason I was hired since they get Gov't money for hiring me, etc. Anyway, has anyone worked here? If so, how did you like it, level of morale, etc.
I am hired on as a Temporary(seasonal) cashier, and was told if I have open availability I can get < 30 hours a week so I stay part time.
Finally, I also applied for an internship with the Pollution Control Agency for petroleum remediation of certain city sites. If I end up getting this what is the most appropriate way to say, "well, sorry I have a far better job/internship." FWIW If I get the internship, I pretty much get $15/hour full-time summers, part time school-year hours. So I would drop my summer course-work in Environmental Science. Home Depot is paying $9/hour hardly what I would make in the other job and the perk of being full-time hours. It's likely that I will at least get interviewed since the recently separated, service-medal veteran will give me preferance over alot of other people. I also have references in the Environmental Services at a large company and they are basically as far as you can get without switching to the overall company managers, etc.
Thanks for advice on Home Depot employment, and also any advice on how to politely quit after a few weeks, or so, on the job. Home Depot, isn't a complete BS job, but if I can get an internship related to my major, I wouldn't hesitate to leave. I am also looking to work here since it will get my employment history up, since I only have 2 years of bartending so far after leaving the service.
