Home Depot Complaint - Employee mistreatment
ST. PETERS, MISSOURI -- Home Depot is mandating that each store garden area stay open REGARDLESS of weather conditions just so that they can sell a few cheap christmas trees. A cashier must stand out in the cold and wind for a few sporatic sales at least until 8 pm. There was a 60+ year old cashier standing outside for 4 hours yesterday in a wind chill of 6 degrees, with forecast of below zero temps tonite. Management refused to close it citing corporate orders and said they are checking store cameras to make sure all garden departments are open and will be in trouble if they see them closed early.It's not humane to make employees stand out in frigid weather when there are warnings that pets shouldn't even be outside.Interesting note-Corporate is in Atlanta -THEY aren't the ones freezing their butts off down there. Please buy christmas trees elsewhere-maybe they'll stop selling them.
