  • Flooring installation time frames

    I don't understand why outside flooring companies can give me a date and time frame weeks or months in advance, yet Home Depot contracts with someone who won't call you until the MORNING OF - only to tell you they will be there SOMETIME between 11 am and 3 pm!!! Really? I could have worked an entire day of work! You made me take off vacation because most people can't just choose when to come and go at work, so that you could tell me you may not be there til 3? Ridiculous! From now on we will be using an outside flooring company and there'd better not be any confusion... More...

  • Veterans discount policy change

    Change in Policy for Veterans. This is a slap in the face for those that served their country in places such as Vietnam. Nothing a human should have to go through but yet not important enough to qualify for a Home Depot discount. Drove to Lowe's and had no problem with their policy. They were very happy to have our business. It may be to Home Depot's advantage to rethink their policy before they lose more customers. More...

  • Never use Home Depot for major home systems

    I used Home Depot in Glastonbury Ct, for a free HVAC consultation, proposed full system replacement/ installation of a brand new Trane XV80, 2 stage variable speed blower system and 16 SEER 2 ton air compressor. The entire installation is flawed. The system is not working properly. Instead of providing energy efficiencies they have made alterations to the Trane factory delivered contents that actually increased both gas and electric consumption and introduced health issues because they cut a large opening in the blower housing. To add insult to injury Home Depot Corporate Customer Service... More...

He was pulling a heavy utility cart with some supplies on it. i told him my purpose for being in the store and he listened intently but i was not very thorough in explaining. So he motioned another coworker to take the cart and he invited me to go to a desk where he pulled up on the computer what i was trying to inquire about.1st step... More...

  • Home Depot IT issues caused acct overdraft. Charged me twice.

    I had a fairly large purchase at Home Depot on Oct 30th. Was informed that Home Depot was having IT issues & indeed they were. I paid for my materials with my debit card. I ck'd my account a few minutes after I left Home Depot & their system had charged my acct twice, 3 minutes apart. I immediately called my credit union & they told me to call Home Depot. I did & was told that the 2nd transaction was voided on their end. Long story short, my acct was overdrawn for 4 days, credit union pulled money from my savings to cover other transactions I had made. I was not a happy... More...

  • The Perfect Water Technologies - Best purchase of the year

    My husband and I recently purchased a home in Northern New York. It has a well, and as much as I don't mind having a well, I didn't care for the quality of the water. It smelled and tinted the tub and toilet orange, and it was great icy cold but the taste, had me running for bottled water. My husband did a lot or research and purchased this system. I couldn't be happier. We've been using the system over the past couple of weeks and both agree it is worth the expense! Installation only took a couple of hours and the difference in the water is remarkable. The smell is... More...

When I looked at my invoice- Home Depot actually charged me ...get this..... $1817.98 for the laminate install. This large difference was listed as molding and transition piece installation. Really?

  • Home Depot Installation Services Kitchen Re-facing

    DO NOT use these guys for anything, and I mean there is no way you couldn't get a better result going anywhere else. I signed up to do kitchen cabinet refacing with Home Depot Installation Services six months ago and the job is still not done. What attracted me was a reputable place and two year no interest on the Home Depot credit card and 5 year warranty on workmanship. I will have easily given up all that for a competent outfit to do the job.

  • Custom Windows

    We had specifically asked for 2, big 5 ft. round picture windows that would go in our bathroom by our jacuzzi tub that you could see out but not see in. 3 different people helped us by putting in the information into the Home Depot system. I believe they got stuck on what company to order round windows from and then forgot or something that we wanted one sided glass windows. We are now finding out that our windows are going to be the kind of glass you can't see out or in and that we are out of luck.

  • HOME DEPOT does not honor carpet warranty

    I purchased 2 years ago Martha Stewart Living Mount Vernon Carpet (for $6,000). After 6 months it looked like it had been in the house for 20 years (note we do not allow shoes in the house, or eating outside the kitchen). We have spent the last 2 years trying to get Home Depot to make it right. They sent 2 inspectors who they pay (a little self serving, don't you think?) They also sent the assistant manager of the store who agreed with us and told us "we buy a lot of carpet from Shaw, we will make this right". It looked old, stained, and worn. They did not make it right.... More...

  • Project Loan - Not What it Seems -- Do Not Do Not Use This Loan!!!!!

    We applied for the Home Depot Project Loan and was told it was interest free with no payments for 6 months. We received our loan paperwork and were charged the interest as part of the amortized loan. THIS WAS NOT DISCLOSED TO US DURING THE APPLICATION PROCESS. The employee only explained it as a 6 month interest free loan and then you would have to begin making payments with an APR of 7.99%. I did not think Home Depot would do this to 2 hard working Combat Veterans with three children, much less any customer who inquires about the loan! There is no point in paying off the loan early or... More...

Estes-Express was quite unhappy that I lived in a cul-de-sac and they had to back in. Then they informed me that they would only put it in the street.

  • Countertop Installation

    Home Depot did a countertop installation for me. Three years later it began to buckle at one of the miters. I went in to the store to ask how to get it fixed. The salesman said "Not to worry--there is a free life-time warranty. Just go to the cabinet dept and set up a time for service." After waiting 1/2 hour I went home and called. I said "My countertop is buckling. I was told there was a lifetime warranty. How do I get it fixed?" The man said yes but I would have to speak with someone else. After being transferred 3 times I finally left a message with Kim. She called... More...

    I have been very disappointed in Home Depot's "Free Water Test." I have submitted 2 tests for my residence and, each time, I do receive an e=mail stating that I will receive a call with water test results within 72 hours. The first test was received 6 weeks ago and the 2nd test was received 10 days ago. Still no response from those that test the water. This test, it appears, is only a ruse to get set up with a salesman from the very expense Rain Soft water system. Buyers be ware! More...
  • Water Testing Fraud

    I have submitted 2 water samples to home depot for "Free Water Testing." In each case, I received an e-mail stating that I would receive a call within 72 hours with the results. The first test was submitted 6 weeks ago and the second test was submitted 12 days ago. To date - no call or report about my water test. The reason I believe it is fraudulent is because the ONLY purpose of this 'free' test is to sell the homeowner their very expensive Rainsoft water treatment. If you want your water tested - go elsewhere. More...

There advertisements on each piece SAY 1x2x8, but in reality its something else not posted. (5/8x 1 1/2x 7 3/4) that doesn't fit the project I'm needing, WHY CAN'T they put the RIGHT SIZE on each piece. They also charge me for a 1x2x8 at the checkout when I didn't get that size.

    My wife and I moved from Michigan back to Arizona. We live outside of Payson and it is really a shame how uninformed the employees are about Veterans making purchases at this store. We lived outside of Gaylord, Michigan. The Home Depot and Lowe's showed respect for Veterans, ALL THE TIME, not just special days as the Payson store does. I was paying for my purchases and showed my VA card. That was when the cashier skated around the 10% discount.

I put down the non-refundable $50, and then find out that wall tiling is $8 per sq ft and the installer way over measured at 92 sq ft for $736. Plus I was never told there's add'l labor for backerboard and Redguard. After the install, there was a hole in a grout line and the shower knob would not turn.

How do they justify charging $8.00 for a qt of mineral spirits and $16 for a gal
ie The Assoc. didn't know what it was and the customer rep. didn't understand the complaint.
The company's policy: use cheap labor and try to fleese a customer

We bought a brand new high end microwave from Home Dept online and paid an extra $100 to have it INSTALLED above the oven in place of the range hood. They had no problem getting all our payment and making it very clear when THEY were available for the installation. I took off work, cleared everything off my counters and inside my upper cabinets and when "Home Depot" arrived, it turned out to be some local delivery boy from a place I had never even heard of. Our house is barely a year old. Contractors built hundreds of new homes after an F5 tornado destroyed much of the city last year, so the house we moved into a month ago is all brand new beautiful wiring, all hardwired and ready for any kitchen appliances we put in. We had somebody else install a new washer and dryer in about ten minutes who told us he hasn't seen such well-organized professional wiring like this in a long time! The delivery boy looked at our outlet, which had a closed switchcover plate on it, and said they don't install "hardwired" appliances. We now need to call an electrician, have them install a new box, then we can call Home Depot back and they can return and install the microwave. We were told when we bought it that the "professionals" could install ANYTHING. The HD manager said if we bought it in the store, they would have told us in person what we needed in our house. Yeah, I bet! The in store guys are even worse--they don't know anything and would say ANYTHING to make that sale. This happened TODAY! Now I'm getting the run-around about our delivery fee we paid, trying to find an electrician on a Friday afternoon who can't get here until Monday, I've got a huge microwave in a box in the middle of the kitchen floor, and all my plates and dishware and glasses are stacked up on the dining room table for the rest of the weekend! All we wanted was some microwave popcorn and thanks to the idiots at Home Depot, we have a huge mess, a HUGE expense, and a nice microwave that keeps getting more and more expensive! We will never shop Home Depot again!

I want to let you know about an exceptional employee. His name is Richard. Very pleasant, polite and also important - he knew where I could find some very obscure items. He works at the Brockton, Ma store. I cannot say enough good things about him. You are very lucky to have him as an employee!

tulare says: (2 years ago)
Don't trust what the people on the phone tell you. They must see a different list than you and I, or the people the put in the stores. Was told they have an item, then they store says they dont, but they do have similar but more expensive. Call back the support people and they toss a whole new story. If you have to go to home depot, and I advise against it if at all possible, while you are walking around trying to find what you need, they will provide an employee to keep you company. Employees dont know where anything is either, but the company going from aisle to aisle is nice. The less competition there is, the worse home depot gets. avoid it at all costs, they will rip you if your guard is down.

Never use Homedepot... their service sucks and they are expensive by the way.
I live in New York and they sent me a company called Preferred Contractors from New Jersey run by a guy call Frank Grieco... nice guy but my kitchen isn't finished even I paid it 10 months ago. I had to not let them work anymore and have a couple of bosses from Homedepot to come and see the terrible work they've done. still 40 days after that I'm still waiting for answer and calls... and basically been treated properly as a good paying costumer.
I will never use them again and never recommend them for anything at all. This people are hopeless.

I was in San Marcos, CA. and it was hot and the first place I saw with shade was in back of the Home Depot store. As I drove into the back I did not notice any signs saying no parking or stay out of this area. I did notice signs on the doors that said stay clear swinging doors. I did notice ther was yellow post on each side of every door opening. I was clearly away from any door opening. I was resting for about 10 minutes and a lady came up to me and said that the security will be making its rounds and they would not be happy with me being here. I did not know who this lady was and she was not in any home depot attire or apron, so I just told my self if the security does come I will move. In about 10 more minutes this guy comes up to my window and yells at me, and tells me I had 30 seconds to move my car or he was going to call the police. I told him call the police, I said I did not see any signs that say no parking or do not enter this area. Then he yelled at me again and said it was up on a pole near a bunch of pallets and outside displays. I am sorry but if you want someone to see the signs, make them more visable or put them on the walls of the building. I told him I did not need to see the sign. Then for the third time he yelled at me again and said I was told three times to move. This guy was a donkies behind. I told him that he was just that and the lady that had told me in the first place never introduce who she was and she did not have any home depot attire on. And then I told him that he was only the second person who ordered me to move. Then he said lets start over. I said that would be a good idea. He said that I was not suppose to be back here and that I needed to move. I said ok. I watch as he went in back of my car and started writing something down, probably my lisense plate number. All this guy or the lady needed to do is be a little more pleasant. I felt like I was treated like a bum or a teenager in trouble, I am 52 years old. This guy is lucky I was not a lose cannon or some mental case or he may have gotten his donkies behind kicked, hard. I just want to write this and hope someone takes head to what happened. To many times people jump to conclusions and it will work against them. I was in the wrong for being there, although it did not deserve the turn of events that took place. I do not wish to ever shop at home depot again and I will tell this story to many people I know. What is the formula for loosing customers, 2 percent die, 10 percent find a better price, 86 percent are lost because they had a bad experience. We are in troubled times and it does not seem like it will get economically better any time soon. There are plenty of other stores like home depot to shop at. Maybe this guy had a chronic pain, I do not know what it was, but maybe as big as home depot is they need to have lessons on how to treat this type of situation. And why did home depot pull all there HR employees out of the stores?

I ordered a garage opener from HD and the guy they sent out was fantastic. I've had one bad experience in the past so it's only fair to give them a positive review when it's deserved.

I paid for HD to measure for a new exterior door. Their staff said I could keep the measurements if I decided not to use their installation services.

The installer showed up early (when I wasn't home) to measure the door, but he measured for a security door instead. I went back to HD for my money back because they didn't measure for the proper door. HD gave me the run-around and didn't refund my money until the next day. HD also said that they DON'T provide you with the measurements. I find it ridiculous that I paid someone to measure a door (even if it was the wrong one) and I don't get the measurements.

I found a contractor that will install the door for 100 less than HD. Never again will I use their services.

I went to the Home Depot in Red Bluff CA to buy a small metal storage unit. Small though it was it was very heavy. I asked for help 3 times to load it on a dolly from a shelf but no one came. I wheeled it up to the front and payed for it. I asked for help to load it into my truck. Three more times I was told someone was on the way. No one came. I finally told the ladies at the checkout counter that I would wait by my truck. It was parked right in front of the store. After another 30 minutes and two more assurances that someone was on the way I had to load it on the truck myself. I spend two days layed up with a sore back because Home Depot would not help me.

I would like to start out with the fact that I am talking about a corporate account, well three of them actually. We have three corporate accounts, and we spend close to $40,000.00 per year per account. We recently chose to close all three due to horrible customer service. We bought a refrigerator with icemaker. It was delivered, but no one would hook up the icemaker. Not a problem we did. Did I mention we have hooked up icemakers several times? Would not produce any ice, we tested the line, not a problem with water flow. We called our store in Gainesville TX who referred us to GE. They sent a repairman who could not fix the problem and they replaced the refrigerator within a few days. Brought us same model and again icemaker would not produce ice. We assume it is a defect with that particular model so we decide to upgrade. I was treated very poorly by Top Sales Rep. He told me that it was due to the water pressure in the lines and I needed to test the lines. At this point we have done this several times. We were also told that the refrigerator needed to be at least 12 inches from the wall in the back. I was told that I would have to pay in full for the new refrigerator before they ordered it and would have to wait until it came in to get the credit on the defective refrigerator. I had already been preapproved by a manager to simply come pick out the replacement model. This is after I left a minimum of 5 messages with the Top Sales Rep to give the salesman who sold us the first one and who was helpful in getting it exchanged. Needless to say I never heard from the original sales rep. My boss called and was told she would receive call back within minutes. They did not call us back so 30 minutes later she called them to cancel the order, we would buy one from a mom and pop store in town. Next morning we get a call from Home Depot demanding to know when they could pick up the refrigerator, at this point we had not been credited. The rep was rude to my boss and demanded that she come in to get the credit. My boss explained that was not a good idea due to the fact that this had made her pretty angry and she did not want to take it out on them. Needless to say, we talked to someone online and called corporate. We had 4 different managers call us and try to give us either the upgrade free or a free refrigerator. We did not want to get something for free. We wanted to be treated with respect and that is something that did not happen. We simply chose to do business with someone besides Home Depot and have since eliminated our accounts. The mom and pop store where we bought our replacement brought us out a similar model by Maytag and hooked up everything. We have already gotten more ice in one day than we did in a week with the two from Home Depot.

Everyone of you customers that come in home depot to belittle the employees or to even complain about the smallest things or to even act as if you knew how it is to be in our shoes. Some of you come in disrespecting us, and demanding good customer service after the fact. You go online complaining then costing people their jobs, cause you didn't get the respect that you demanded. I feel bad for all the employees who work this company, and put up with disrespectfull and ungrateful customers. I won't be surprise if one employee goes physco and starts shooting you customers cause all you wan to do is complain. So write down your complaints but don't be surprised if someone will go mad.

i purchased a vanity with a marble top at the home depot on hanley road in st louis, missouri-when i got it home and checked it, the top was cracked--i called the store on friday night at 8:00pm and talked to a manager whose name is renato--he was very pleasant and told me to bring it in to exchange--when i explained that i was a senior and that was difficult for me, he said that he would get an exchanger to our house--the next morning, sat, he himself came to take care of it--he is terrific, a real asset for home depot

I am renovating a house in Delaware but am at home in St. Petersburg Florida for the winter.
Betty Gold at the 22nd Ave store has been so helpful, she writes sku # and product discriptions for my DE.contractor. She always does it with a smile and say's now if that does not work come back and we will work out something else. She is knowledgable and an asset to your company.

Dover NJ Home Depot Needs People Skills Training in Customer Service:

Here is a letter I sent into home depot via the online method...

I would like to launch a complaint about the store in Dover, NJ. (Rockaway Area) A few weeks ago I had gone into the store to purchase custom closet doors for my bf. Because of how long we waited they knocked 50$ off of the price. The day before yesterday we found out by calling the store that the doors were discontinued. So last night we went to the store to get the money back for the doors. We were greeted by an aggressive woman who had no business working in customer service as she did not want to help customers. Finally a person above her made her help us. She was grumpy and failed to mention that if she was crediting my debit card back it could hold up the money being put back onto my card by 48 hours to two weeks. This morning when I called she was not happy to hear back from me. I had gone into my bank account and noticed the money had not been credited back to my bank account. While I had purchased the doors etc under my bf's name we ran it all through my credit card. When I started asking her questions about it she was short and rude. She stated she would be looking into it and not realizing she hadn't hung up the phone said "What the hell is this lady's problem" in a nasty tone. I called the store back and did not receive much extra help in resolving this issue. I tried to speak with a manager named Dan on the phone who while sympathetic was trying to put blame on me for not asking how long it would take for the money to come into my account. So now, my money is tied up, I can't get what I had started out to, and they didn't care how this was an inconvenience. We have been spending money there non stop lately as we are doing a lot of work on the house. Please help me learn what can be done to solve this. Its christmas time and I'm out money that I need because of your people. I'm also insulted and can't believe how people who are in customer service supposed to represent your company treat people.

This morning my wife and I visited your Wintson Churchill, Milton location looking for three things: hiding screen door for our patio doors, hardwood flooring, and project ideas for storing computer books. We entered the area displaying patio doors where a woman in Home Depot garb was on the phone. We waited looking at some merchandise she then finishedhercall and proceeded to ignore us. I then went overto her and explained our needs regarding a scrren door she then led us to the area concerned handed my wife a brochure and proceded to talk onlydirectly to my wife, who, at this point hadn't even asked her any questions. I feel that this woman maybe is taking her feminist roots to an extreme and I then left your store and went to where I was immediately addressed by a sales person I made mypurchases and left without incident. There gain of a customer your loss. Maybe you should teach your employees customer relations

bought a garage door with installation. instead of the fancy trim I asked for the door lock which was included in the price. no one knows anything about the lock. cannot get anyone to come back. this is a high crime area and there are many tools in this garage with no lock. I want the door removed so I can buy from a company that will provide what they wrote on the contract.

Not Enough Help in Store

Not Enough Help in Store......gheeze

ohioguy621 says: (6 years ago)
I think Home Depot does not have enough people working in the stores. I'm always looking for someone to come help me and takes me average of about 10 minutes until I find a guy that's not busy. Usually I have to hunt somebody down to help me. Isn't it supposed to be the other way around? Never shop in Akron or Canton, Ohio's Home Depots. I do not like Home Depot anymore because of their customer help inside the stores is louzy.
