Home Depot - Complaint
Service - Complaint
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- Do not ever work for Home Depot. every thing you read is true and more. I am not one to complain but when they invent a reason to fire you, then say they incurred a loss and sue you for 157.00. (this was not theft) but try to collect over 1000.00 and send you a bogus letter that appears to be from an attorney, despite the fact that you can't be sued by an attorney from another state. threaten to sue you in civil court for theft, which legally they can't do unless there is a police report. There can't be a police report because there was no crime. what company does this???? I have consulted an attorney and he will take this on however he wants me to call HR first and ask them to drop this and see what they say. I know what they will say. there is such a major disconnect between what they preach and what they do. It is companies like this that made unions necesary.
I know you need a job, in a market that is quite depressed but is this worth it? knowing you will be fired eventually whether you merit it or not and I can give you so many examples of it happening while I worked there but I don't want to bore any body.
Well, if you are 20 something, attractive, party with the dept. heads and kiss a** like you have never done before, work your a** off for ridiculously low wages you might last a while, but I guarantee you, if you have any self respect, you will quit for greener pastures before that happens.
I only planned to work there till I found a better job but then the recession hit and I could not find work in my field so I hung on. If I had known how devious this company was I would have never taken the job. I just hope some of you people who really count on this job for your livlihood (fortunately I didn't) will realize what goes on and look for a different job. Better yet go to school and retrain your self for anything.
