Home Depot Complaint - Going Down Hill
TEXAS -- I just fornd this site. Was amazed to find so many unhappy people with Home Depot and a place to speak out. I have been an employee for 4 years in Texas. I have seen the company go through many changes since Bob Nordeli took over most for the bad. In every breakroom in every HD there is a TV tuned to HDtv it is all propoganda you hear nothing bad about HD it paints a very Rosey picture. Fortunantlynot many employees wear rose colored glasses. One of the biggest changes I have seen is the customer servise they all say it is better then it has ever been, NOT true. Comming from the top hours have to be cut, which means fewer employees in the departments and they wonder why shoplifting has been on the rise. There have been times when there has been only 1 person to cover plumbing flooring and hardware. You can only spread yourself so thin.
Then you have store managers that have no respect for women much less anyone else. This may not be in all stores but it is in mine. Our store manager will scream (like a 2 year old throwing a fit) at a female employee in front of customers or anyone else standing around he berates and belittles them and when anything is said his responce is theres the door BABY. I know personally for fact that many complaints have been made to our corporate office by employees and customers on this man and still nothing has been done. This man will only ask women to do cleaning and menial jobs that have been always done by women. He asked me to clean up a mess a male employee had just made whom he was chatting with when I refused I was written up. the mess was not even in my department. He was just being his arrogant domineering self. I did not realize when I signed on with HD I was signing into slavery.
Thank you for letting me vent.
I am looking for another job I am a single mother raiseing my children alone, The pay is not that great here but best I could do for now.
