Home Depot to lay off about 7,000 employees

I doubt very very much if I would return to Home Depot as an employee. You are right about customer service there........although some stores do have good (not great) customer service. It all depends on the type of management and their style. I really had enough of the big box store mentality. I've joined the group on orangeblood........will see how that works out lol.  (Mar 4, 2009 | post #167)

I'll check it out Baba.....in a way, it's difficult to see you go.......but perhaps it was not meant to be?  (Mar 4, 2009 | post #6)

New rule tackles no-interest offers at The Home Depot

The consumer has to be aware and read the fine print! Credit used to be easily obtainable but that has changed. These companies make their money on the fees and interest. I have excellent credit but have noticed a huge spike in the interest rate or APR. Buyer Beware (Caveat Emptor)! These cards are merely a ploy to get you into the store and to charge, charge, charge, to your hearts desire. You are much better off using your banks credit card.  (Mar 4, 2009 | post #1)

There are so many forums. Topix is a good one but we need to stay more focused with the issues whether pro or con.  (Mar 4, 2009 | post #3)

Quarterly Report: Home Depot reports loss of $54 million

The credit market is the culprit........companies and credit needs to be loosened up in order to get funds flowing again.....and that is going to take some time and energy both on the government and private sectors. I know, I'm rambling on.  (Mar 3, 2009 | post #4)

Quarterly Report: Home Depot reports loss of $54 million

I believe the market will rebound......it's inevitable but I also believe the market will end down in it's lowest level seen in years. The rest of the world is watching precariously. Our system is still the best in the world.......we've survived much worse in the past. I believe the current Government administration will thwart any ill feelings in it's goal to stabilize the economy. It will take time for this to happen but believe we will come out stronger in the end. We learn by our mistakes.  (Mar 3, 2009 | post #3)

Quarterly Report: Home Depot reports loss of $54 million

I do believe that government intervention is qualified in most respects since many large corporations and their survival is at stake. Free Markets will adjust in time. Whether these corporations repay their debts in full is another matter......given that the U.S. Taxpayer investment is solid enough. On the other hand the U.S. Dollar and Public Bonds are stronger now than before.  (Mar 3, 2009 | post #2)

Quarterly Report: Home Depot reports loss of $54 million

It was inevitable under the economic conditions, that THD would have to re-organize within itself to lessen the impact of losses. I'm positive, given the current economic crisis, thanks in part to the housing market collapse, there will be more cutbacks during the next year and perhaps beyond. The economic conditions are global impacted. It's merely the supply and demand side of business and budgetary demands ......no demand equals less supply whether it's voluntary or compulsory. THD IS a global supplier and receiver. Government intervention in the private sector is meant to lessen the fears of investors, however, we are not a socialist government, and investors fear intervention by government, thereby increasing fears rather than lessening. There appears no rapid solution other than the "wait and see" approach. European economics are built on a different system and solution.  (Mar 3, 2009 | post #1)

Home Depot to lay off about 7,000 employees

It also looks good on your resume if you have had formal training ...........employers look for that in resumes.  (Mar 3, 2009 | post #165)

Home Depot to lay off about 7,000 employees

It's merely a sign of the times. The younger people have hardly any customer service experience under their belts. Management tends not to care since it's the bottom line (sales) but if there is no formal customer service training then the customer becomes disorientated and frustrated. Many customers are in fear or overwhelmed entering the big box stores. I thought I had good customer service skills until I took and completed certificate course at my local community college......last Fall. It makes a world of difference being prepared to deal with various (and some complicated) people. I would recommend that everyone (if given the chance and they can afford it, or paid for by business) to take a 4 or 5 week formal course in customer service...and I'm not talking in-house company run course. An educated employee is the company's asset.  (Mar 3, 2009 | post #164)
