Home Depot Complaint - Home Depot/Military - Home Depot supports the military - BULL
PHOENIX, ARIZONA -- I decided to try to get a job at the new Home Depot by my house. I filled out the application online and was called back for an interview. I told them before they even interviewed me that my fiance was coming back from Iraq for R. and R. in June for 2 weeks and then he would be going back. This would be the ONLY time out of a full year that we would be able to see each other AND we were getting married. There was no way that I would be working during this time, and they said it was no problem. They gave me an interview, and I got hired. I went through hours of training and orientation. Well, the dates that my husband was coming back from Iraq had changed (the military always does this) and it happened to fall on their grand opening. I called them and told them that I couldn't work and they asked me if I can work the day before he went back to Iraq and they day he left! I told them no and they said if I did not show up it would be an automatic termination. Can you believe those ass&^$#! The funny thing is, Home Depot always preaches about how they support the military and everything else.
Now, there is a law that companies have to give you 2 weeks off no matter what if their spouse is returning home from a deployment. I hate Home Depot.
