  • Wiggling out of giving military discounts to real Vets



    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. The last time I was in the store, when making the purchase they showed me a card showing WHY they should not honor a VET. No one gets the... More...

  • home depot galvanized water pipe problems



    Four years ago I installed new galvanized pipe from the street to my house. Within 2-years I had a pin hole water leak. Currently I am working on my fourth leak repair. The material or process used to make the pipe is not acceptable. The other galvanized pipe around the house is 50-years old and does not leak. I suppose the Industry standards are no longer being enforced. Would like to know where to find quality pipe that will last 50-years as in the past Fred T. Steele Jr.. More...

  • Home Depot refrigerator delivered damaged



    delivery men may have broken it when changing the doors because the doors were supposed to be changed at the factory before it was sent to us. I don't know if they broke it or it came that way but they pointed it out to us. the door latch wouldn't keep the door closed so we definitely wouldn't accept the refrigerator. They were nice and apologetic and we were glad they pointed it out and suggested we have them take it back. That was Saturday. Today is Monday and no one has called us to tell us the next steps. We have had to call Home Depot. someone told me she could... More...

  • DON'T do Home Depot flooring install! Looking for Attorney



    We purchased a Pergo laminate flooring which included an install package of $497. The Pergo product is great but the install has been a NIGHTMARE and the customer service is non existent. After 4 weeks from install date we still don't have it installed and now have to hire an outside company. In a nutshell: Installers came out on scheduled date for install. We had carpet pulled up, baseboard off, cleaned and great job site prep. They said it was too unlevel and then left. (this is an upstairs plywood subfloor). THEY JUST LEFT !!! Told us we needed to add 1/4" plywood to... More...

  • Wall tiling installation



    Issues right from the start. First, when I told the salesperson DK28FX at store 4905 La Crosse that I had about 70 sq ft of shower walls to be tiled, he said it was $5 per sq ft, so about $350. 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. Now waiting for these to be fixed as well as a re-measure. More...

First delivery on August 12th - one of the delivery associates was angry and agitated when he arrived. He was completely unfriendly. He physically abused the control panel on the newly delivered washing machine which broke the computer. We had to spend 2 hours on the phone to order a replacement machine.

  • Rejecting Reviews



    I've submitted two legitimate, rule-following reviews on the Home Deport web site, warning customers not to purchase the Q-SEE video surveillance system on account that it does not protect your private logon session. Each review was rejected, then I found others who experienced the same and had their negative reviews rejected.

The workmanship was excellent and the finishes were beautiful on the display. Our first order arrived with the finish on one of the cabinets completely messed up and the drawers not aligned properly. I redid the drawers myself. One cabinet was sent back with a request for a rush. Didn't happen.

  • Home Depot broken dishwasher



    When they came to install the dishwasher the tech said the dishwasher was broken. So I called Home Depot to get a new one and I was transferred 5 times between customer service and the appliance department. I staid on hold for 20 minutes during these transfers. Then I was cut off, so I called back and asked for a manager and he did not apologize and was aloof. Then he transferred me to the appliance department. It took over an 1 hour to get help with them reordering my dishwasher. Do not buy appliances from Home Depot go to Lowe's were they know how to treat customers. More...

    We orderd toliets and tiles from Home Depot online to be delivered to local store and both experiences have been terrible. The tiles came broken and we had to make severla call to get that problem resolved as the local store will not be responsible for online orders. The toilets were ordered in two seperate online orders and experiecne was worst with both.

  • HVAC Air condition repair service



    I live in New Jersey and I called Home depot for central AC repair. Home depot referred me to call Carrano Airconditioning to come to repair my AC. The technician came and did a very simple diagnostic and told me the refrigerant is low in the AC system and I should buy a new system instead of repairing it. The technician even suggests I should replace the furnace together with the AC unit too. The total cost will be $7800. On top of it, the technician also suggested me to replace the second A/C and furnace unit, which he never looked at, in next year. I asked the technician where the leak... More...

    I was in the local Home Depot to purchase a washer and dryer combo, which took about 2 hours. The sales clerk was very helpful and answered all of my questions but as I prepared to pay at check out, the expected discount was not included in the total transactions. I asked about the military discount I beleived that I would get and was informed that military discounts were not given on sale or clearance items. I could not believe this.

    My husband and I purchased a table and chairs for our patio. What was delivered to us was a huge box, nothing short of a small elephant, with two love seats in it. The delivery man said that they don't deliver to second story apts and just left the package (in the rain) at the bottom of the stairs. We called customer service and spoke with a manager and were basically told "tough shit" .

  • Customer experience gone from bad to great due to a great employee



    I went to buy a grill this evening at Home Depot. I wanted it assembled and knew I'd likely have to wait for that to be done at a later date, which was no problem. The problem was that when I tried to pay for the grill the cashier couldn't figure out how to do a "will call." Finally, she had me take a picture of the price ticket and go to a separate building to try to pay. I knew this didn't seem right, but after waiting 20 minutes for that much help, I was willing to do anything to talk to someone that could handle the transaction. Will Jones stepped in and... More...

    When I went into Home Depot to ask about wood cutting to build a window screen I didn't expect that I would have my screen built for me at the cost of materials! This job was for an old thick wooden basement window screen that had gone missing. I brought the one in and Chuck Fenstermaker, Millwork Specialist, built the new one to match exactly. While he was at it he built another metal framed screen and fixed a window for me. The things were ready to pick up the next work day! Thanks Chuck, you are a Home Depot gem! More...

When i got the estimate for the gutter guards, the receipt i received clearly mentioned that ALL the gutters would be covered with gutter guards. However when the installation service arrived and completed their work, i asked about the gutter guards for my garage which i clearly discussed with the service rep during his estimation and assumed this would be covered by the "ALL" being mentioned on the receipt.

  • Home Depot Bait and Switch installation quote



    Paid $35 for an estimate on carpet and installation. After being assured that the preliminary free estimate included all foreseeable charges, the final quote included a previously undisclosed $75.00 fee for "delivery" of the carpet by the installers. When questioned, the sales person said it was a new fee and refused to waive it. Drove a half mile down the road to an independent carpet store and purchased a better quality of carpet that, with installation, came to less than the Home Depot quote. Home Depot got me for $35.00, but lost a customer for life. More...

  • Home Depot Delivery Drivers Pay Out of Pocket for Damages



    I have had dozens of appliances delivered from Home Depot and they are usually very good. I've had damaged appliances and they either discount the appliance or replace it with one that is not damaged, no problem. Today, I had a fridge delivered and the drivers, who were very nice, did EXTENSIVE damage to the back hall where they did the delivery. Two holes in the wall, damaged concrete, scraped paint and some moderate to severe damage to the 100 year old trim and molding. Most of the damage was caused because they forgot to screw in the screws that hold on the door, so they gouged... More...

  • Missing Manager on Duty



    I just spent over an hour at the Home Depot store, located on 387 Charles St. Providence, RI. The issue started when the cashier couldn't break my $100. He called the MOD for some change and politely asked me to wait a few minutes for the manager. Half an hour passed (not even exaggerating, I have two separate receipts to prove it), and the manager had not showed up. The cashier (Murf) walked me over to another cashier and asked to break the $100. Since the drawer was closed, because he had other customers to take care of, he had to check out another item that I picked up. While trying... More...

    Loss Prevention Personnel in the fairmount Ave. Store have disabled the scales at the self-checkout registers preventing the Attendant from being alerted when a item does not match the weight in the database. This allows unsuspecting Customers to leave the store before being confronted and escorted to a back office. Then pressured to admit to a shoplifting charge to avoid Police involvement claiming they changed bar code information. This without any video evidence from any of the over 40 cameras in the store.

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!

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.

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.

Flemish 5 says Sept. 19, 2011 at appox. 2:30pm

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.

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.
