I ordered a washing machine on line and paid for delivery, installation, and for disposal of old washer. During the chat on line I told the person of the problem. I was not asked at any point if the washer had any amount of water in it. I however drained the washer down to a small amount of water because I didn't want a sour smell in my home. The delivery men refused to turn water lines completely off, as they were supposed to attach the new lines from the kit I purchased with the washer. My brother did it for them.

Then they refused to move the washer because of the water, even as they were told that we would take care of any spilled water. My brother had to move the washer as the two men watched. The movers from Spirit movers were very unprofessional. Now I did go to the local store and told them of the complaint. I was refunded 59 dollars. I am still unhappy about this event and I still have to dispose of the washer, which will not be easy to do. If I had known that this was going to turn out this way, I would NOT have made the purchase! In the future you may need to stress the need to honor a commitment to sub contractors so that your costumers will remain your costumers.

I bought a 22'' lawn mower the first week August 2016 (refurbished). The first week of September the self propel stopped working. I took it to the Cross Keys store to have it fixed only to have it held and "worked on" and told that the manufactures warrantee would not apply. well after picking it up and paying for supposed work, I used it once and it would not work any more.

I also took my 30'' in to have the self-propel fixed on it. I was asked about the tune up which I said do it as well and put new blades on it. I know the tune up is changing the oil, filter, and spark plug it was kept for a week and when I picked it up and used it the self-propel did not work. I took it back and was told that it was the belt and the wire. I paid and got it and it still does not work.

I noticed that the blades were not changed the first time and I was charged for it. But when I mentioned it was told that maybe I was cutting wet grass. Tough when I picked it up the second time the blades were new. I am trying to get a business in lawn-care going and can't do much with badly maintained equipment and having to put customers on hold. it's bad business. I have spent much money with Home Depot to the pointe that I was going out of town and as I came through the x-ray at the airport, the TSA agent said to me 'You look familiar ", I said You look familiar to me too but I can't think of where I know you from.

He then said, "Do you go to Home Depot", I said , yes a lot. He sais "That's where from". If that does not say how much I use the store, I don't know what does. Though my machines do have wear and tare, I paid to have them fixed to work. One is not working( the one just purchased and used one month) and the other is barely working. I need to know what can be done about this. I do have paper work on this situation.

On the 25th of sept my wife and I ordered a Samsung refrigerator from the store in Danbury ct. On sept 28 to be delivered on October 5th.My wife noticed the item was on sale so she called to get the sale price which was 321.60 less. She spoke to Carmen and was told a managers approval was needed. For the next four days numerous calls to get the approval went unanswered. We finally drove back to the store which is 30 miles away after being left on hold for over an hour. This would be on the 3rd of Oct about 230 pm.

Spoke to Carmen again and although she was very nice was unable to get approval because apparently manager was not available in the store. The names of the people responsible were Al Conklin and Tonya. We finally canceled the order after not getting the approval which we were told should only be a formality. With the exception of Carmen the customer care service at this store is completely non existent. Because of the management here Home Depot lost a sale worth $2384.00 to Sears. Both my wife and I think Home Depot should take a look at their customer care in the management area.

I bought a 24.6 cu, ft. French Door Samsung refrigerator on 19 September, from the Home Depot, 11075 Tara Blvd, Lovejoy, GA, and it was delivered on 22 September 2016. My paperwork stated the refrigerator that I currently had in my home would be removed and hauled away. After they installed my new refrigerator the delivery people stated, "we did not come in a truck with a lift, so we will send a message to our company and have someone come and pick it up". Although, you delivered a large size refrigerator they could not remove a refrigerator that was a little smaller because the old one was too heavy. The old refrigerator was placed in the front of my house, today is 26 Sept and it is still sitting in front of my house.

On the 22nd I had not heard from anyone so I called the number for the Appliance Delivery and stated my problem to have the old refrigerator removed. The person I talked to was rude and stated that no one was in my area but she would send someone tomorrow which would be the 23rd of Sept. I asked at what time and she stated that she did not know but for me to just wait until someone showed up and that I did not need to be home. I did not trust her so I called the Lovejoy Home Depot on the 22nd and asked to speak to a manager to expressed my concerns, they transferred me to Logan the person who takes care of these types of issues.

I explained to Logan what the problem was and told her about the rude person I had just talked to pertaining to my refrigerator still sitting in front of my house. She called me back and stated that the refrigerator would be picked up on the 23rd between 2 and 4 o'clock. I knew that they would tell Logan the exact same thing that I was told with no intentions of picking up my refrigerator. Needless to say it was not picked up and today is the 26th of Sept so for 5 days I have had the large double sided refrigerator sitting in my yard with company having to walk around it.

My money can be accepted and after that my issues and concerns are just thrown by the wayside. This is the second time I have bought something from Home Depot and had major problems, I should have gone to Lowe's. I am very, very upset and do not understand why I have to go through this every time I buy a large ticket item from Home Depot.

Purchases a double wall oven on receipt #H1245-15194 at your New Rochelle store. The oven was delivered on Friday Sept. 9th. Your installers were scheduled for Monday 16th. My husband and I took the day off. Two brothers showed up around 5:45. They had no cutting tools with them. They said that the oven was too big and they couldn't do the job. We drove to Home Depot to try resolve the issue. We spoke with the appliance manager and asked if we could return the oven and reselect something else. We offered to pay a restocking fee. I've been doing customer service for the last 38 yrs for a major retailer for furniture and rugs. I found the young lady to be combative. I was rather surprised at her attitude.

We then spoke with the operations manager Treacy-Ann Burnett who was helpful. She could understand why it would fit. Shre offered to credit back the installation fee if we got someone else to do it.. Our carpenter looked at it yesterday and couldn't believe they couldn't do it. All that was needed was to cut about 2 inches off the cabinet. I found out since that the company that was sent to my home has had a lot of complaints. Tracey offered to give us a $25 gift. Knowing that Home Depot sent out a company that has had many complaints $25 doesn't cut it. The main issue I have is the way we were treated by the appliance manager. She was just unwilling to help!

Almost three weeks ago I purchased a cooktop in store. Was not able to fit, per Home Depot contractor. This was never communicated with store, and so I had to make numerous calls and emails after which the cooktop was collected from my home. I spoke with store representatives as well as sent emails regarding a suitable fit. Again no response and so I had to visit store and each time no one is able to assist. I was told that I would receive a call from manager or credit. To date neither of the above. I will therefore seek legal advice, as they have taken my money and have forfeited their side of the contract.

I hate to give one star because our sales person was so nice as was the delivery driver. Beyond that the experience is frustrating and I would say there is no such thing as customer service at home depot. We bought a washer/dryer last Tuesday 8/16...why is that in caps? Because if you pay Home Depot they should take care of an issue not the customer spending 2 days and phone calls to Home Depot store, Home Depot number attached to delivery form, LG, Deliver service, Customer Service complaint/resolution (Not) and still I wait.

Saturday 8/20 on delivery the dryer was damaged (the box looked great but the front of the dryer was smashed..now how does that happen) so it was never taken off the truck. It is now Tuesday 8/23 at almost 4:30 pm and I still have no idea when the replacement dryer will be delivered but well someone from LG is supposed to call me tomorrow (um yeah because they called me today like they were supposed to? nope) to tell me Thursday or Friday deliver....I work people I can't just take off...well I was told if when they call it is not an automated delivery notification you could ask for a time that works for you.

This is not customer service....customer service would be the delivery driver calling someone saturday to say hey damaged dryer when is the next date to get one out to these people? I was warned to go to Lowes...next time I will listen

Took two items without receipts to Home Depot for a refund or store credit. Home Depot would only refund one item and not the other without the receipt. I asked for the manager. He came and I asked him to authorize the refund or store credit. The value was $3.30 on a Home Depot product but he would not without the receipt. And he gave no explanation why the discrepancy as to why they would refund one item without the receipt and not the other.

So I took the store credit for the one item and made a small purchase to use it and when I got home I went to www.homedepot.com/survey that was on my receipt and completed the survey with the only complaint being not being given a refund on one of two items. The end of the survey asked if I wished for Home Depot to contact me and I answered it yes and gave my contact info. They never responded.

It really is a petty issue but they should realize that pissing their customers off just sends them to Lowes. I went on line and looked at scads of Home Depot reviews and lots of folks are giving their business to Lowes due to dissatisfaction with Home Depot customer service.

A few month ago I and my wife went to home depot between 159th Street and 151th Street on root 7th, to buy an internal door. After a few weeks I got the costume door that I ordered. Unfortunately the door was broken when it got to me, and I sent it back. The drive that delivered the door to me said a lay claiming that I knew, and I knew that the door would be broken. I did not understand what he was claiming since I paid for a new door, and not a broken one. I sent back the door.

I went to complain at Home depot headquarters and the CEO, and after a while they told me they would send me anew door. Yes after a few months they sent me a new door, but it was not the one I chose. The door is made very poorly and the glass is not the one I had chosen the first time. I decide to keep the door because I did not want to wait a few more weeks to install a door. But since I have another door to install, I will not buy anymore from home depot. I will buy the small stuff on the shelves, but no more the costume made stuff. After many years I learned, and now I will try other places.

Several months ago we bought a new lawn mower at Home Depot in Valdosta, Georgia. It quit working and we took it back. Was told had a 30 day return policy but they could send it off for a fee which we paid. Was told it would be a couple of weeks. Last week we got a call from the store saying they just shipped it and it would be 6-8 weeks. This is not acceptable as cannot mow the grass and have company coming for the 4th. They waited 2 weeks to send it off after saying it would be back in 2 weeks.

I recently purchased almost $900.00 of rails and posts to construct a post and rail fence in our yard, I placed the order online and when I went to pick it up there was a lot of confusion and what should have taken about 10-15 min. ended up taking an hour. The employee waiting to put the material on my trailer could not seem to get a "spotter" to help him move the packages through the store. This is a lot of money to for my wife and I and we had be putting some aside for over a year to do this job.

When I started the project the next day I was very disappointed with the railings, they were not anywhere near uniform in size, they were not similar in shape and in some cases I had to saw the ends because they were too thick to fit in the holes of the posts. This is unacceptable to me and I am sure others, fortunately I was able to modify where I needed to but I am certain that there are others that would not have been able to.

These materials were purchased at the Home Depot in People's Plaza, Newark, DE 19702. Please contact me about this problem.

6 months ago I visited home depot 1066 Central Parkway San Antonio, 78232. I was looking a light bulbs, a salesman recommended the Led bulbs as he told me they would last as long a 20 years and point it out on the promotion. I bought 3 of the top of the line.He told me they would save me over a $100.00 during their lifetime. I asked him if they failed could I bring them back for a replacement and he said yes.

Today one failed and I took it back to the same store. The young lady told me they would not replace it and If I had a complaint I had to take it up with the manufactory. (I did not buy it from the manufactory, but from Home Depot) I have spent over $3,000 dollars this year with Home Depot, I'm sure Lows will look forward to my business. I left the as the the young lady was picking up the parts from the floor. PS: I dislike liars or company's that don't stand behind what they sell.

I bought a home at the end of May and my credit score was 772-736-716. I asked HOME DEPOT for a project loan for $10,000. Instead, Home Depot sent me a credit card and a letter that implied my credit score was 695 and because of my score they would only give me $5000. I called customer service to find out where did they get the low score from I spoke with someone name Derrick in the credit department. He informed me that my card is void and hung the phone up without an explanation.

This was unprofessional and very humiliating. I have never been so insulted in my life. I am not sure what my options are at this time however, I was informed to contact you and that you may be able to assist me with reactivating the card, correcting a wrong, making me whole again and providing an explanation. I'm asking if you would give this your highest priority. I really need this credit line it was to allow me to complete the work on the home I just bought. Thank you in advance.

I was scheduled to deliver 9 pallets to a Home Depot in Laredo. It's by a Walmart and Academy. Got there 4 hrs early let them know in receiving I had arrived but not expecting to get unloaded until my appoint. Time between 9:15 and 10:15. Went back at 9 and they said it would be 10 . Called not to complain but let the Mgr know that I was told I would be unloaded at 10 but I honestly couldn't understand what he was saying. Another he went by and another. Walked back to receiving twice once seeing several people in the window, rang the bell with a guy looking right at me and walking out of that area and another girl walking off as well.

Walked back to my truck and saw 2 people BBQ asked them if they were in receiving and I feel like they were because he couldn't come up with answer very quickly. 5 times I went to receiving and I gave up and went to bed. Wake up at 3:30 am 5 hrs late to the forklift driver honking his horn continuously driving back and forth to wake me up to pull 1 tarp off of the 9 pallets. That is pathetic and so unprofessional. These people don't care. It's people like this that indirectly not knowingly contribute to accidents with semis involved I think.

All I'm saying most of the time when were unloaded were on our ten he break and if Home Depot says that if the drivers aren't on time they won't get unloaded then it should practice what they preach and not be 5 hrs late waking up a driver that had been asleep trying to get his rest.

First I have been a Home Depot customer for many years, I experienced a very embarrassing incident on May24@7:30pm. Upon checkout I was informed that I could not get my 10% military discount because not every item was discounted and only when I paid was I able to see what was discounted. The cashier was rude and when asked to talk to a manager I got a disgusted rolled eyed look. The manager would not talk to me but told the cashier she was right and that's the way it was.

Incidentally there was a customer in front and in back of me who was veterans also and we were all stunned. I have always respected Home Depot and valued its 10 % discount. I did not purchase anything and went to Lowes who thanked me for my service and as always gave me my 10 percent. If this is your policy, that's ok but all veterans organizations need to know this.. I'm hoping this was a misinformed manager and a misguided rude employee. Awaiting your reply.

Purchased a Smart LG Laundry washing machine from the The Home Depot in Collierville, TN, it was delivered December 30, 2015. I called The Home Depot in Collierville to complain about the machine as it was not cleaning our close they told me they weren't responsible that I should call LG from the number in the book I received. I called LG and they sent a repairman out and reset the machine however it still would not clean our close so I called LG again and a repairman came out and reset the machine but it still will not clean our close.

My cousin went to The Home depot with some of our laundry to show him the results of a cleaning by the machine and talked to a manager by the name of Kevin who told her there would be no problem on getting a refund and that they would call her the next day to take care of the matter no call came therefore my cousin called Kevin and he denied saying he would refund the money on the machine. I called LG and spoke with a gentlemen and after telling me there was nothing more he could do he referred me back to the Home Depot. Their idea is to bounce you between The Home Depot and LG with both throwing the responsibility back on the other.

In the last 10 years we have spent tens of thousands of dollars in the stores located in Palm City Fl, Chattanooga Tn, Port Charlotte Fl and Vero Beach Fl. Remodeling our homes and other properties. In January of this year we purchased a $6900.00 complete new air conditioning unit from Home Depot. Recently we were trying to order $1600.00 worth of cabinets. Finishing the order and arranging for delivery, we were told that they will NOT deliver to the second floor. We were also ordering all new appliances with the same issue--no 2nd floor delivery.

This policy has eliminated Home Depot from being our go-to company. We are in our 70's and cannot understand this policy which is certainly not user friendly for us. I am certain that we are not the only customers who are dealing with this lack of service. And we certainly have rethought our future shopping at Home Depot.

It has now been a month since purchasing an expensive, top of the line impact driver from Ridgid. I purchased the product because it offered a Lifetime Service Agreement and was, I guess, supported by Home Depot. I have followed the detailed instructions to the letter and submitted registration for this product online. Twice. I‘ve been rejected twice. (“Unfortunately, we encountered an issue when cross referencing your product and/or proof of purchase information with our records and were unable to upgrade your products to Lifetime Service Agreement (LSA) status”)

I’ve double checked all numbers. Twice. I re-submitted online, as I was told I could do by both Home Depot and the Ridgid documentation that came with the product. Twice. I’ve been told by a recorded message to call back during business hours - at 3:30pm on a Monday afternoon, and 3:45 and 4:10. I am now told by the second rejection email, that I need to re-submit by “certified mail”, the “original” receipt, which would mean I would have no way to return the product, the customer id and the rejection email and wait another eight weeks for Lifetime Service Agreement approval - which would run over the 90 day registration period. You have to be kidding!

Two and a half hours time spent online, entering registration numbers, verifying registration numbers, trying to phone Ridgid for help and explanations, time spent writing letters to Ridgid, Craig Menear at HD, gas and time to the post office, standing in line and $5.55 to mail certified letter. Is this the kind of experience Home Depot would like to be running through its' customer's mind the next time they're standing in front of another Home Depot product contemplating purchase? Really?

We are very disappointed that your paint personnel gave us the wrong paint. Joe went in and asked for cement floor paint and was told that using the cheapest wall paint would be fine as long as we seal it with a polyurethane, which they also provided, with instructions on how to use it. This paint & polyurethane peeled off the floor. Joe went back, told them what happened, and was told to purchase stripper because it would take only the top layer off and would only need to repainted top coat. Not the case, it melted all layers off all the way to the cement, thus forcing us to remove everything and start over. We re-purchased the same supplies for the second time; repeated the process and the same thing happened.

When returning to the store a different paint employee was present, who told us we should not have used any of the previously purchased products, but should be using an epoxy paint for cement flooring and a sealer called wet look sealant. He explained how to use it, what to expect, and what to watch for. We just finished the room using this method and have only had a few spots that are questionable but overall it is pretty good.

We expect Home Depot to refund us the money for the 4 gallons of paint, the 2 cans of polyurethane, the 2 cans of stripper, and all the supplies. BTW the stripper was like rubber cement inside the can which means it was previously opened and used. We are quite frustrated and angry! Not only did we spend over $600.00 on the wrong materials, but also wasted two weeks of our valuable time dealing with this, not to mention gas and time returning to your store.
We expect you to resolve this situation to our satisfaction immediately!

On 08/02/2015 I purchased several items from Home Depot Store on 9051 Snowden River Parkway Columbia MD. I am a busy person and forgot to returned items that did not work and did not fit my project. Since I have never had any issues returning merchandise back and received store credit I did not bother to remember to return items and completely forgot I had them on my truck. I found them the other day and since I needed other merchandise I went back to the store and tried to return or get store credit for what I had.

After initial process I was told that I was past my 90 days and that I would get store credit. The clerk took my driving license and told me I was denied because of my tendency to return items (not accurate quote but it was what I understood) and gave me a receipt with the following Transaction #132650095-503-THD and was done again later after my conversation with the rep at the #866-550-3133 I called to fix this issue. After waiting for a while she told me the reason I was denied it was because I was past the 90 days and that if the store did not help me I would need to write the Corporate office. The Store manager went through the motions again and got the following same message and Transaction #132650230-060-THD.

I am a customer who over the decades has spent thousands to fix my home and I have dealt with many issues but issues I could deal with. The items I am trying to return do not exceed $52.00. This is more about principle than money.

Home Depot took my pro rewards away. I lost all my points! I went to buy 20 gallons of paint today and I don't seem to have a discount any more! Really! I liked shopping at your store in Chehalis. I really liked the people at contractor sales. Ill miss them because I was offered Discounts at a paint store. now Ill have to go there. You say Its because I haven't bought enough paint last year? You don't know! I send all my customers there!

Its the only discount I get from Home Depot -- or used to! I can go to the lumber yard and get contractor discount on every thing but I haven't just because of the people and the one perk I had of the paint discount! You didn't even warn me about doing this.

I ordered a refrigerator in January of this year (2016). We requested that the doors be changed to open to the left instead of the right. The refrigerator was delivered on 1/7/16, with the doors unchanged. I decided rather than asking the delivery guys to change it, I figured it should be a simple enough job to do myself so I let them go. Little did I know that these hinges were going to be over engineered. The refrigerator has to be nearly turned upside down to remove the bottom hinge and move it. I gave my local Home depot a call and asked if they could come out and correct the doors. I was told probably the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. I was told I would have to purchase another refrigerator. Keep in mind, I am a retired hydraulics mechanic. I am looking at this hinge and all that needs to be done is for the refrigerator to come up off the floor and taken loose to move. I won't shop Home Depot again.

I was recently in the Home Depot located in Boardman, OH.(330)965-4790 on 08 Jan 2016 to purchase Wild Bird Seed. I selected a 40 lb. bag of the Farmers Delight that Home Depot carries for their customers. I proceeded to check out at the register. What I would like to bring to your attention is that the unprofessional behavior of the cashier, Jayne(JKG2096). I am concerned and frustrated because Jayne reacted in a bothered manner once I showed her my retired military I.D.

She then proceeded to inform me that she was unable to pick up the 40 lb. bag which was in a condescending tone. I do not mind having to assist a Home Depot employer, however, not when their tone and attitude was disrespectful and rude. I am a local homeowner and have been frequenting this store for over 9 years. As a loyal customer and a Veteran with 26 years of service to my country, I felt mistreated and looked down upon. I was taken back by this behavior due to that fact that I didn't provoke this type of behavior from your cashier. In all, I was hoping to receive a better quality of customer service. Thank you for your time looking into this issue.

We bought kitchen cabinets, $2800.00 worth. While putting in the counter top, which one section was not cut, so they didn't fit. We tried to modify them, but they still wouldn't fit. I called Topsham, Maine Home Depot, where we got them, explained what was going on to a lady named Audrey. She took all the info, I sent her a picture, she talked to a manager, and got back to me. She asked if I had a way to get the counter top back to the store and I said yes. She said to bring them back to the service desk and there would be new counter top, all cut waiting for us. We get the counter tops back to the service desk, the new ones were there and that's when the trouble started. The man at the service desk, his name was Loren, gave us a hard time. Every little thing we said he had to call someone.

He said because they were cut, they were unsellable. I told him Audrey said to bring the old ones back and pick up the new ones. He just kept arguing with my husband. I was at the point where I said to my husband, let's just go to Lowes and get what we need. It's pretty bad when we spend almost $3000.00 dollars here and get hassled like this. Then again he had to call someone and told us to wait. He then changed his tune and did the exchange. It turned out alright but we were there for almost 2 hours it shouldn't have happened. I will think twice about Home Depot before we do another renovation.

Had a bathroom vanity made and the workmanship was very bad. Don't know who you use to make the cabinets but they apparently don't take pride in their work. Had to hire someone to fix the problems because Home Depot wouldn't take them back. This is a sample of how things look. Drawers don't close correctly.

So I am at Home Depot today and the older gentleman in front of me shows his ID for a veterans discount. The clerk tells him he does not qualify for a discount so the gentleman asked to see a manager. They ask me to go to another line because this may take a few minutes. I tell them no thanks I want to hear this. So a young cocky full of himself moron comes to talk to the gentleman and says no you do not qualify. The gentleman tells him he has always gotten a discount there. So the moron says well we have told our people to tighten the rules and we only give what corporate requires we give and you do not qualify. The gentleman says he will then take his business elsewhere. The young moron replies that is your choice. The gentleman starts to leave and I step in.

I tell the moron if one of your idiot friends walked through the door right now you would have the option of giving him a discount and with your attitude you would do it. So step over to the register and give this guy his discount. He says he does not qualify for it. So I tell him look here is how this is going to work. Either you give this guy a discount and I call Home Depot corp and tell them how good of a manager you are in spite of the stupid policy. Or I go home call Home Depot corp tell them I stupid the policy is and their manager is a moron, then I blast face book and it goes viral and you get to be the moron you are.

I think you know which one he chose!

So people please blast Facebook with this story.
It was Home Depot store E Spokane #4714
5617 E Sprague Ave
Spokane Valley, WA 99212

What a shmuck, he also told the gentleman that he would have to talk to the CEO of Home Depot to change his mind. I hate people who do not respect our military.

Tried to get parts for a screen door tonight at the west long branch, new jersey store. After looking for screen door parts for 25 minutes and not finding the parts, and not finding any associates, I asked for help from a young man who walked me to the front to two other associates who then referred to a third large woman who was quite demeaning and pointed to aisle 11 for the parts is a nasty and demeaning tone. I looked up and down the aisle and could not find them. Obviously none of these three women were interested in showing me the customer where the parts were. After spending another 20 minutes looking, there were no parts in aisle 11.

I went to the front again and again they did not know what to do again. 5 people on your staff just standing around talking and talking on cell phones instead of taking care of customers. Finally i found one good guy, Frank who got me to the part in less than 5 minutes. It appears the store is lacking the basics of customer service and the how can I help you attitude. I have been a customer for many years and never gad a poor and humiliating experience such as this one.

Please see photo of employees in front of store on cell phones while they are suppose to be working.

I have been a loyal customer at Home Depot since 1991. My Pro # is 9149800603. Today, at the Home Depot in Hawthorne, NY, at about 2;45pm, My wife and I went to return some items and buy some items. I returned three linoleum tiles that the cashier said "did not come up". This was fine with me, but I asked some questions. I asked "is it possible that I bought these items here, but, that Home Depot no longer carries them? The cashier said "sounds goods to me". I said "what? I'm not asking you how it sounds". I then asked "is it possible that I bought then at a different Home depot that carries them?" The cashier replied "Sounds good to me". I said, "What? I'm not asking you how it sounds. He then said, "do you want a head cashier?" I said yes.

The head cashier, Cesar came over after 10 minutes and reiterated the same responses and the cashier and defended his answer of "sounds good to me". Cesar would not answer either of my questions and become belligerant. In the mean time, the line for returns grew longer and our voices grew louder. Basically, instead of answering my questions, Cesar defended the cashier, made it seem like I was doing something wrong, and caused a scene in front of several customers.

Embarrassed and frustrated, i said "this is unfucking believable", and went to look for the store manager, many of whom I know. I asked another employee to summon the manger. I told her that I did not want to speak to the the head cashier and that I needed to speak to the store manager. She got on a phone an talked to someone and told me that the manager was coming. Then, Cesar, who is tattoo riddled and who acts like a tough guy, approached me and said that he was the manager. I said "no you are not, you are the head cashier". I told him that I had never seen him in the store before today. He said " I have worked here 7 days a week for 3 years". I said "with no days off?" He said "yes, no days off". Clearly Cesar was lying and be belligerent to a me. We were at the self checkout area, and several customers witnessed the incident.

Then, Cesar said, while he was approaching me and getting very close to me "why don't you take your tiles and leave?" At this point, I was afraid for my safety and felt like he would strike me. I turned around and left. Then I remembered that I had a door lock in my hand that I needed to pay for, so I turned around and paid for it in the self checkout line. The store manager on my receipt says Fred Schlott. If you don't fire Cesar, I will be filing a police report.

I bought a roll of multi color led christmas lights planning to return and buy 4-5 more rolls. I came back the next day to get them and they were all sold out so I bought 4 rolls of clear ones instead. I wanted to change to roll of colored lights but I couldn't find my receipt. The store would not let me exchange and would only credit me the lowest price the lights had ever sold at which was about $1.47. I paid over $6. This is outrageous. I wasn't asking for money, just an exchange because the store didn't have what I needed. As usual. I have never had this problem before especially for a simple exchange. I will shop elsewhere from now on. There are plenty of other businesses that would appreciate my patronage.

I write this complaint with much disappointment with the decline of the customer service at the Home Depot. However as a professional myself I believe you need to know about my negative experiences. Keep in mind the 2600 Hurstbourne PKWY located in Louisville Kentucky is the only store involved. I have a property management company and deal with both the Preston and Hurstbourne locations. The Preston Highway store without question is excellence concerning customer service: Within the last week I purchased approximately $1100 worth of appliances the Hurstbourne store. A problem occurred with our new range and we realized we had no manuals. My wife called your Hurstbourne store and after a 20 minute hold time she was told she should have received the manual with the delivery. He continued to tell my wife if she was having problems with the range she needed to call GE.

When she ask for the phone number she was told to go on line and print the manual and the number probably would be on the manual. He said he would look into the situation and call her back. That was a day ago. On December 3rd 2015 I went to the same store to purchase a Christmas tree light tester. When leaving the store one of your women employees ask to see my receipt. I started to look in my bag and remembered the receipt was in my wallet. When reaching for my wallet this woman attempted to jerk my bag from my arms in front of several people. Handing her my receipt I told her asking to see my receipt was one thing but being rude was another. After leaving the store and driving home for about 5 miles the more upset I became and decided that I should call the store manager and report this incident.

After calling and being placed on hold for around 5 minutes I decided to drive back to the store. This all took place around 5:30 – 5:45. Upon arriving I went straight to the service desk and ask a gentleman the name of the store manager. I was told he was not in and I requested his name which he wrote down on a piece of paper. Curious as to the problem I told him what had happen. I told him about being on hold and suddenly relized I was still on hold and allowed him hear the Home Depot recording on the speaker. He looked down at his phone blinking and read me my phone number and ask me if that was it. The store traffic was very slow that night and only one other customer was ahead of me at the service desk and just think I drove back 5 miles to the store with my phone still on hold after waiting 5 minute to go.

My point is your employees are not answering your phones. They are allowing your customer to remain on hold and maybe encouraging them to hang up. The employees may have been tired or whatever but your Hurstbourne store needs help. Consider this as a courtesy corporate complaint because if this was my business I would sure want someone to tell me. I did speak to the assistant manager and pointed this women out to him. I enclosed a picture of this women if it uploaded correctly because I didn’t get her name.

Went to home depot in Oneonta, NY. Bought a washer and dryer for almost 1,000 dollars. Arranged for delivery, got up to the front to pay and they said they would NOT honor my husband's military discount as items were on sale. So for the sake of around $60 you lost a $1,000 sale. We are informing all VETERANS of this. Working in retail myself I know word of mouth causes damage. Lowe's is up the road will go there to make our purchase and do our business with them in the future. My husband has stage 4 cancer because he protected our country so thanks for nothing.

Please cancel my Home Depot credit card due to what I have just read on facebook. I am a veteran and if this is how you treat veterans I will shop at Lowes from now on. By the way they do give veterans a discount. Home Depot should be ashamed of themselves for not honoring our veterans.

An advertisement at the entrance to homedepot brought us into the store to purchase granite countertops, the ad stating 7 days installation from day of payment we purchased on November 14th and as of today November 22nd we have no countertops and template is to be taken tomorrow according to the store. When we spoke to the Assistant manager, Marvin he had no answers we were told the store manager would reach out on Monday. After I called and spoke to the manager he was less then helpful and rude. "What do you want?" During the holidays it gets busy we can only do what the installer can do. This is not my problem as I have paid in full and expect what I paid for in the time frame I was told would be done in. NO APOLOGIES at all for this inconvienience as I was expecting to have my counter for the holiday and now I will have Plywood that my husband will have to put down. We have purchased our entire kitchen from homedepot over $25,000 in supplies we should be valued customers not made to feel second rate. Please look into this matter.

Do veterans get a Home Depot discount? There is a story on facebook that a veteran went to (store #4714, 5617 E. Spraque Ave. Spokane Valley, Wa. 99212) and was told he no longer qualify for a veteran discount any more.---- if so-- why is it I have not seen any thing saying that vet. get a discount - I'm 65 year old and a vet - and have been shopping for years at Home Depot -and have never been ask or told about it. Also I applied for work at Home Depot year ago and did not hear from them.

Manager gave me a price on an item. When I came to get it he would not honor that price. I complained on Facebook and home depot complained to Facebook and got me suspended. You think that will keep me from letting everyone know how much you suck. Wrong.

A couple of years ago i purchased double pane windows which had a lifetime warranty. I called in to fix sliding door window and was scheduled an apppointment for Nov. 11, 2015 between 2-4. The appointment was a no show and i did not get a phone call on reason for the no show. I called daily from Nov. 12 - 16 for status and was given a run around. Below are the reasons/excuses i was given by Home Depot employees: David Benzo installation manager is in a meeting and will call you back (to date no phone call). Another manager with phone number at corporate promised to look into the problem and promised to call me back on 11-13 (to date no response) Called the Home Depot complaint line on 877-654-6688 on Nov. 13, 14, 15 and 16 and was told that someone would call me back. I talked to Char to schedule an appointment but was told that the next available is for Dec. 9 which to me is unacceptable since i had an appointment on the 11th which your company did not meet therefore i should have priority. Dealing with your company has been a nightmare and i am reaching out to you for resolution.

I have order a Anderson window that came incomplete. It was order to have a motor the motor did not come with it the contractor asked the home deport clerk if everything was included in price and was told yes. When I picked up the window the motor was not in the box. I went to palatine store and was told I would have to pay for the motor . The contractor was with me and said that this has never happen before. We settled on paying for the motor and NOW I have to wait till Dec. 4. REALLY. I called the palatine store twice yesterday 11-11-2015 talked with Adam once was told that he would help me get it soon and he would call me back. I told him I was going to email the corp. office. I have been a Loyal home depot customer but I am losing faith. Now I have a bath that is at a stand still. I will let people know how unreliable your business is. Thanks for listening but I am sure it will not go anywhere.

I had a death in my family. A family member purchase a washing machine for me at this time.I did not have the opportunity to use the machine immediately. When I did I was not satisfied with the preference of the machine. I contacted the store and was told by an assistant store manager that I could swap it out. I was also told I could do this at any HOME-DEPOT store. I went to the nearest HOME-DEPOT store in Hammond Ind. and was told the same thing if I had purchase the machine from them. I went to the store where the machine was purchase and was told the manager made a mistake and got no cooperation from them. I explain that the machine was of inferior quality defective and sub-par performance. The customer service rep had a Oh Well attitude and basically said I'm stuck with it I was even welling to up-grade and pay more money. Can you HELP?

3 days before Veterans day My 84 year old step father showed his VA ID for a discount at the cash register and the clerk told him he was not entitled to it because he was not service connected. This man served in the Korean War was discharged with honors. It was the appropriate Id as it is the id issued to him by the Northport VA in Long Island and he was in Florida to attend the Veterans Day parade at the Tampa VA. As I was driving home I glanced back in my rear view mirror and saw the tears rolling down his eyes. This man never cries and is a man of few words. This is what America has come to, three days before Veterans day.

On the line for 17 minutes before I could speak with someone in the kitchen department. Waiting wasn't as much of a problem as the music on the line. It was loud, too loud and unappreciated. Really hate being on hold, not because I'm special but because the music is horrible!

My name is Tami Price. I’m writing to you in regards to a situation that happened in November/December 2013. During this time I lived in Kingsland Georgia. I became friends with a wonderful young lady by the name of Mendy Langley. I met her at church several years prior to this event. She is a domestic violence survivor, and also a survivor of Spina bifida … her type is very rare…. she has endured many years of suffering while as child and continues to live in pain 24/7 and will till the day she dies. She is a mom of 3. Her oldest is a daughter that has learning difficulties and will forever live with her. Her second is in 3rd year of college.. ( most of his schooling was home schooling until high school) his college is paid for by his high grade point average and other grants. Her youngest is now in 6th grade and like her brother is smart beyond her years. You might be wondering why im telling you all this. Great question.

In the winter of 2013, your store in Fernandina had a manager there by the name of Douglas Bischoff (sp) and his assistant Sandy. One day he approached one of his customers and asked them if there was anyone they knew that needed some “help”. He was looking for someone that fit the need for some program where the store shows up with a semi-trailer and several dozen employees and the media is involved somehow. That customer gave them my friends name as they attended the same church and he knew of the sad situation she was in . ( husband abused her and children and then dumped her after 20 plus years of marriage and him in the navy.He dumped his family and left her with no health coverage and putting his 3 children on the “system” so he could go have a fling with someone 20 years his junior) anyway Doug contacted my little friend.. ( who during this time was EXTREMELY shy and had panic attacks over the littlest thing..) this is when I came into this picture with home depot…she didn’t want to be home alone when these people came over.

I was there when Doug and Sandy both came and Doug informed Mendy that they would indeed be taking her on. They told her to get ready to have a big semi-truck and 30 plus people there in 3 weeks. They also brought her and her children a Christmas tree and ornaments and a few presents a few weeks later .. again telling her to get ready. Then the week came and went… Doug would say the funds have been allocated we are just waiting on this and that… and oh the Ac /heat had to be done by a licensed person in Georgia.. as his store was just over the fl/ga line. A month goes by… nothing… but they send her some room heaters… a patch… she and the girls are still dealing with temps in the home in the 50’s… another month goes by.. Nothing.. but promises .. Doug telling us not to give up.. this WILL happen… then next thing we know...

NO DOUG at Florida store.. HE had been promoted and now is up in Brunswick, Ga. Sandy the assistant in Florida has no idea what to do… we are still being told it will happen… well by this time I end up relocating several states away.. Doug KNEW this was coming and he told ME that it would happen before I left. Well it is now going on the 2 years and not one thing has ever come of this promise that I personally take from Home Depot. My friend is way too shy and doesn’t want to cause ANY problems for anyone… however I on the other side am beyond frustrated over this entire ordeal. This has showed not only her and her children not to trust Home Depot but anyone that makes promises. They have already been hurt enough from a man that walked out on the family and has not looked back. I am seeing my friend face yet another winter without all the things promised to her and her children.

If it were something like we MIGHT be able to help … but for them to build up the hopes of children and an abuse women is something totally different. I am to the point of now going around my friend and letting hopefully the right people know how this person represented Home Depot and giving Home Depot the opportunity to set this right. I'm enclosing MY contact info at the bottom of this letter. If you have ANY questions contact me… I don’t want my friend put through one more thing from home depot other than a semi truck pulling in her front yard.

I have a real dilemma here with Home Depot. I bought a lake house on Lake Brownwood that needed some serious renovations done to the floors and kitchen which I ordered and had installed through Home Depot. Unfortunately I ran into some problems with uneven floors in the kitchen and had to work on them to have the laminate flooring installed the following week. During this time I was also working with HD to upgrade the kitchen cabinets and counter tops. I ordered cabinets in Sept, paid for a contractor to come out and measure to verify the measurements given for the cabinets - the contractor didn't want to provide the store with the measurements as I was looking at doing the majority of the work myself (moving power and water lines, adding additional power receptacles, etc.). Chris (Manager) stepped in - we got the measurements finally but I didn't want Perry (contractor) involved with the install- during this time I was told that the caI have a real dilemma here and need your assistance.

Chris (Manager) stepped in - we got the measurements finally but I didn't want Perry (contractor) involved with the install- during this time I was told that cabinets would be ordered and any modifications due to incorrect measurements could be done by amending the order. Subsequently Home Depot had another contractor (Byron) come out and measure the cabinets the beginning of Oct. the measurements were obtained and a Delivery Date of 11/24 was given.

Come to find out the order was never placed In telephone discussions with Jessica (CSO) who was also under the impression that the order was placed. Then a new delivery date was established for 11/9. On 11/2 I received a call from the cabinet company asking to verify my order, subsequently I found out that my order was placed on hold for 2 weeks due to a "glitch" and a new delivery date was established for some time in Dec. I received a call from the delivery company for delivery either 12/3 or 12/10.

I find this totally unacceptable as I still have to have the Granite counter tops measured and installed after the cabinets are installed. When this project was undertaken we had a vision of the kitchen being completed for the holidays, hopeful for Thanksgiving but definitely by Christmas- this doesn't appear to be the case as I was told it could be 3 to 4 weeks for the counter tops to be measured, cut and installed. My other issue is that I have already paid for my cabinets and counter tops in Sept through the HD Project loan program- They are requesting Payment on 11/19- I have not yet received any merchandise ordered on that loan and am reluctant to begin payments until after all merchandise and services have been delivered.

Read the about the veteran being denied his veterans discount because he didn't qualify! Do you need to be reminded that if it wasn't for veterans of all ages especially the retired ones that there may not even be a home depot! Hence you wouldn't have a job!! To sit on your ass and pass judgment on others who have served our country! Clearly you are self absorbed greedy cowards who take take and take from customers who you claim to care so much about and you don't want to give back a little to the people who have served our country! And if that is not enough you hire manager's who don't have a clue as to what it means to be a veteran!! And probably talked there way into position with little or no work ethics. So if you choose not to honor every one of our veterans active or retired then I choose not to shop at your store!! While remodeling my home! Lowe's is my store of choice. They homer all our veterans!

I had purchased a dryer to be delivered today , 11/3/2015 , sometime between noon - 4pm to 19 Pronghorn Run , Carmel Ca. 93923. I received a voicemail confirmation on 11/2/2015 , from Temco Logistics ( someone Home Depot subcontracts for deliveries ) stating the above. Their contact number 1-510-675-9150 , ask for Gabby. The trucks shows up to deliver at the wrong address. He is instructed the correct address and how to get there. He refuses to deliver stating he does not have enough gas. Mind you the above address is only 2 miles down the road, 5 minutes tops. so he gets in his truck to leave and head back to his companies location which is about 70 - 75 mile from my location. Now he has gas to drive there but not to deliver. I called his office (the number listed above) 5 minutes after he leaves my location. The office returns my call 5 minutes later stating he said he has left the property and cannot go back. Mind you it takes 20-25 minute for a truck that size to leave this property. I tell them the driver is still on property. They do nothing, but offer to deliver on Friday 11/6/2015. I need the dryer today not Friday I explain. Nothing. I call Home Depot, talk to 4 different people in the so called customer service department. Nothing. I just get transferred from one person to another. I am a very very very unhappy customer , mind you we have commercial account with you and spends a very generous amount of money each month. You call this customer service. I would like to suggest you be careful on who you sub contract to make deliveries on your ( Home Depot ) behalf.

Found washing machine with damage at Home Depot in Boerne about e weeks ago. Talked to the department manager, Greg, who told me he could not sell it until they had a replacement for display, which would take a week or so. Greg said he would call me when he got the replacement. Greg said he would sell it for $325.00 and might could go a bit less due to the damage. I checked last week and learned a replacement was due in today. Went to store, found they had received a replacement, went to buy it and was told it would be $371 or thereabouts. Greg was there (in the back somewhere as the salesman went back to check with him) but would not come to the floor. Told the guy to keep the thing as I do not do business with liars. Will not ever in my life show with you people again and will advise my contacts on the various social media of this, in detail.

We did an online order to ship to store #6651. We are very disappointed in this store the way we have been told over and over are order was their and we live 35 miles way to go down to find out that NO the order was not there. four times this has happened. We would call to make sure. Say are you sure. and the would say yes customer service. The this last four time they said they would deliver the stuff as soon as it can in. And everyday this goes on we are losing money off our job. And not only this we lost a very big job. Because of this order. Now we spend thousands of dollars at your store to have this happened. In Tehachapi, CA which is much farther from us was the nicest people. When we have jobs and promise our customers we would have the stuff there at a certain day. This doesn't mean your store can jerk us around. This has caused a lot of stress. And very disappointed with your store on how it handled our order.

Last May, we had a small Kitchen build in our all weather lanai and wished to have a small 5 Cubic inch refrigerator placed into or sink/cabinet area. Having purchased the sink and plumbing at Home depot, I decided to purchase the small refrigerator there also. To my surprise, there were many that could fit and were priced well under $200. After pointing out one on the shelf, a salesman said to us "that refrigerator will not work as a built in cabinet model because it has no ventilation to the front. You need a model that you can only buy on line made by "summit" " and it costs $526.00" "this is the only way you can do it!" So we went on line, and did the purchase and had it shipped to our nearby Home depot store.

We picked it up and had it installed. It worked for 14 months and died. Summit said the warranty is only good for 12 months and that this unit is not meant for a built in situation anyway. Summit refrigerators are also not very kind about offering any kind of rebate or incentive to solve this matter. Sadly, Home Depot also is so far not taking any kind of personal responsibility even though they are the ones that suggested this expensive alternative in the first place. Our local Home depot has wonderful people in their customer service department, but I think their hands are tied.

I was buyer landscape items for our home and got ready to check out, the cashier in the outdoor section, was not experienced and did not know much about the items I was buying, I had in my cart 18 pavers which she could not identify, finally out of frustration, I went to the isle where they are and got the item numbers and gave them to her, no help. She finally found a paver at about the same price and I said use that. I had your coupon which would expire on Oct 3ist if using a home depot card which I gave her, she said it would not accept the card, it was a new card and I had taken the sticker off which says "Your replacement card is ready to use.

Remember to take the enclosed coupon with you, at that point, some 15 minutes later I gave up and went to the main part of the store. In order not to have the same experience, I took pictures of the item displays along with the unit prices and item numbers. The woman at this check out was trying to help and had all items on the list completed, by now I could not find the Home Depot card, left it on top of the pavers, which I went back and got. She said no problem enter your ss number which I did and she said we don't even have and account. I was livid and paid with my debit card and left, I didn't even get to use the 10% off coupon which is one of the reasons for shopping at your business anyway. It seems to me others have had similar experiences and I thought, maybe, it was some of their own fault, but this was certainly the shopping trip from hell

I purchased carpet from home depot about 1 yr and 10 months ago, and it is all worn down and ripping. I paid a lot of money for that carpet and I have to replace it because it looks so bad. I am disappointed that I have to go through the manufacturer to see if I am eligible to get compensated. I would like to find out as soon as possible. I've been a shopper of Home Depot for years and would like to continue shopping there.

Very unsatisfied with the service at Harlem Rd Cheektowaga 14225. We wanted to purchase a new shed and purchase the additional warranty and labor to have it constructed. When in the store, we couldn't find anybody to help us, workers were walking right by us and not even answering our questions. I ended up driving 20 miles out of my way to another Home Depot and found the service much better, workers willing to go the extra mile for me. I do not think I will be purchasing from them again.

Our company is a residential construction company in NorthEast Ohio. in 2015 we have increased revenues exceeding 45%. We are a family owned and operated company. We have currently purchased from our local Home Depot store an excess of $40K so far in 2015. A new project to begin in November that could increase those numbers. Although I am sure, 40K is not a large amount of the yearly sales, it is about 70% of the material costs YTD for our company. We do not hold, nor have applied, for a Home Depot credit line as our company has the cash flow needed without this store credit. Last night we purchased a new Dewalt miter saw from the Chardon store. The price was $599 and a free table came with that purchase. We noticed that the same dimension, amp and dual bevel sliding compound miter saw from Dewalt was a "special buy" at $399. But no free table. (the Table is $199) So our determination is that the there is no real deal. $599 or $598. Actually the 399 with the table was a 1$ value. We purchased the $599.

My complaint is that when dealing with the manager of the store, I pointed out our purchase history for the year and that we don't get any consideration different than Joe Homeowner. I was told that there is no incentive for professional companies other than a credit account. Even with that, unless we purchase over $2500 in a single purchase, there is no discount. We purchase almost daily due to lack of space on the job site. Yesterday was just under $700 the day before that $600. and so on. I also noted that we used to get coupons and deals IE: $25 off next purchase of ...We don't get any of that anymore. He stated only companies with credit get those. Some special treatment should be given to commercial customers without credit lines with Home Depot. Just because we don't have a credit line, does not mean we are not purchasing large amounts of product from your store. We will be looking for other organizations that treat commercial customers with a bit more care.

Why are customers allowed to bring large dogs into the store? In the past 2 days I have visited 2 different Home Depot stores, one in Woodbridge, Virginia and the other in Springfield, Virginia. The store in Springfield allowed a man to bring in a large Doberman Pinscher and the store in Woodbridge allowed a man to bring in a large German Shepherd - neither were service dogs. Is this your policy to allow large dogs in your store that could possibly cause harm to your customers? I am not a dog lover, actually I am afraid of dogs and I should not be subjected to be afraid while shopping. If this was a Pet Smart Store, I would understand but it isn't and I ask you to please reframe from allowing customers to bring in pets. If you continue this policy, please let me know and I will take my business elsewhere.

This is a second hand complaint that I hope you take seriously. I was on Facebook today and read a post about the Home Depot manager at E Spokane # 4714 in Spokane Valley, WA 99212. The person that posted this was taking up for our military. All Home Depot stores should provide discounts to our military and the fact that this manager did not is very disappointing to me. My father served in WWII and was in the reserves so you can understand why I would be upset at the very hint of disrespect to a veteran. Please reply to me and let me know the status of this issue. I eagerly await your reply.

I am writing with an inventory complaint at our local HD in Johnstown, PA. We always buy at HD. We started a patio with paver SKU#524-290. We purchased approx. 400 to start. When my husband went for another 200, (your inventory was showing 350+/- there was only 55? After many questions and looking for these pavers that were showing "in stock" an associate finally figured out that one of the cashiers put in the wrong SKU for a purchase of these pavers.

They used a SKU for red pavers therefore showing that the red/charcoal were available. I can't tell you how many times I've called/stopped regarding this product. We actually had to make two different trips to your associate stores out of our area (Altoona & Greensburg) to purchase more. Mind you these stores are not a hop, skip & a jump from here. They are approx. 1Hr. away from our home. We had no choice. We needed them. This not only cost us our time but gas money & mileage on our vehicle. This all began last Tuesday, the 18th and our store still cannot give us a date of when the pavers will be arriving let alone when and if they were ordered and this is over a week later. Your input on this matter is appreciated.

I would like to report a complaint from Store # 4714 E. Spokane. 5617 E. Sprague Avenue, Spokane Valley, WA 99212. I apparently have been given information that recently a veteran came to this store and made a purchase. When he asked the cashier if he was eligible for a veteran's discount he was denied. I would like a response in writing and on Facebook from this store's manager and from the CEO, Craig A. Menear about the current store policy that is in place and that was in place about giving a discount to our military families and veterans? I hope to hear back from you soon.

Takes 5 weeks to get a storm door installed. The level of service I received by you is at an all time low. The door needs to be measured before the install (takes about 2 weeks for someone to measure). Then the store says the technician measured the wrong door (takes another week) to remeasure. Takes another 6 days for someone to call me to let me know that the measurements are in and that someone would contact me to setup installation. I called the Bustelton Store in Philadelphia yesterday to speak with a manager who assured me someone from the install dept. would call to schedule an appointment. The install dept. called last night at 5:30 PM to inform me the next available time to install is another 2 weeks. Home Depot this is awful customer service. I will be returning everything I purchased and never shop here again. I'll make certain to tell my story to other people in a similar situation.

I have been rebuilding my home since the flood of 2014, I'm retired and on Social Security so the military discount I get really helps. I was at the Home Depot today, ( 7-27- 15) at about 11:30 am. I was purchasing over $100.00 worth of supplies. When I showed the cashier my military ID, she told me they don't do military discounts anymore, I told her she was wrong because I was just there the day before and purchased dry wall and supplies and received my discount.

She then called her supervisor, a big black lady showed up as her supervisor and started waving a bunch of papers at me saying they never do military discounts only on the 4th of July, I told her I was just there the other day and I have been getting my military discounts for the past year, she very loudly told me I was wrong and became very argumentative. It was very embarrassing because other customers were behind me, so I left everything there and went to Lowes. Apparently your employees and supervisor at that store don't know your company polices.

We ordered a countertop and backsplash from your store in Altoona,Pa. From the very beginning there were issues. First we were mislead about the countertop we wanted. When the person came to measure he told us that particular countertop would be pieced and I wanted one piece. We had to go back to the store ( which is 50 mins. from our house ) and order a solid wood one. When they came to measure for that one, we were told it would be about 3 weeks. About June 1 should have been the time. We didn't hear from anyone so I called the store and was told that the people they had to install it was under new management. We kept calling to find out when it was going to be installed and we were told that we would be put on the top priority list.

When the day finally came that the installation was going to happen, the installer only had the countertop and not backsplash. They were 4 hours away and I couldn't believe that they would not have checked the goods before they left the shop. We were told it would be a while before they could come back and install it. All this time, my kitchen was tore apart waiting for the complete installation of the countertop; I told L.E. Smith, the installation people, that this was unacceptable and I wanted it by the end of the week. They called and said they would be able to do it, A different installer brought the backsplash and when he came, again hours away from our location, he didn't have any caulking with him. What he had was dried up.

My husband had to take him to our local hardware store to get some. When I came home from work, the backsplash was not flat, it looked like there were gaps all around. I called and told them I was not happy and was told that the installer said it was a good job. I asked for someone to come look at it and they sent someone. I was told this was their best man (from L.E.Smith's) It was bad and Rick told me he would order another backsplash and fix it right. He was supposed to come July 1 or 2 and said he would come later in afternoon so I would be here, and that he would be the one putting it in. We got a message when we were out of town that they would be installing it on June 29. I was not home when it was installed, my husband was.

When I got home from work, I noticed right away that they damaged the drywall in 3 different places and that they did not clean the caulking off the countertop, it looked awful. My husband and I had an argument about it, and HE fixed the drywall and repainted and went to home depot to BUY some cleaner to clean the countertop. I was and I am still furious with him. He called home depot and told them of the problems and it was decided that they would give us $150,00. I told them to keep the money.

This is not about money. I am very unhappy and dissatisfied with the whole experience and just want you to know how unhappy and how frustrating this was for me. My husband and I are still not speaking and I know you don't care about that, but I want you to know how a simple countertop installation could be so messed up. I will not be using home depot for any more home projects. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions for me.

Ordered blinds (Living room and kitchen) in March with an install date of May 5th. On May 5th, installer is missing some parts for the kitchen blinds & has to re-order these pieces. The parts arrive 2 weeks later & install date of May 21st. On May 21st, the installer has the necessary parts for completion of one window however the wrong color wand was shipped for the other window. I was promised the correct wand would be ordered & sent directly to our home in a few days. I have made several calls with absolutely no results.

I have been more than patient. I received a message yesterday and returned a call to Rockwood & was told the person that called is not in today. I then called to our local HD store & spoke to someone in the blind dept. who said they would call Rockwood & call be back. A rep. from Rockwood called & did not know the color of the wand. I advised it is the same color as the other window and matches what I ordered. I was then asked to take a picture of it and send to them? Unacceptable!

I purchased a Samsung washing machine and the extended 3 year warranty. The washer is barely 2 years old and it broke. I contacted the warranty dept. and was then referred to Solar for the repair. Well, after scheduling a service call, which took 6 days for them to actually come out to my home, I learned they had to order a part. Now I am waiting for the part to come in. This is completely ridiculous. The washer is still not fixed and I have to wait another 6 days.

I seriously doubt I will ever purchase another appliance from Home Depot again. The service warranty is a Joke!! But the laugh is on the customer. I will never recommend to anyone the use of Home Depot appliances. As I write this letter, I am still without a washing machine, and I am sure there will be some other excuse from Solar again next week.

Horrible service by Solar, and I am frustrated totally with Home Depot's input, or lack thereof, since I have called several times regarding this matter.

The service at Home Depot was awful and the information the Home Depot representative gave me was incorrect and sent me on a wild goose chase. After finding what I was looking for, I returned to him and explained that next time he needs to tell the customer that he didn't know what they were looking for instead of sending them on a while goose chase.

After many words went back-and-forth the Home Depot representative told me "I can take this apron off" as if he wanted to go to the parking lot and fight. Not sure if this is standard for Home Depot, but I thought someone should know what is going on at the Pearland store.

The manager, John, was very respectful and did take the time for me to discuss this issue and then asked was there anything else he could help with. I said, I would like to file a complaint and he gave me everything I asked for and took charge of the situation.

This happened on 5-21-15 around 7:00pm. Not sure what the gentleman's name was but John, the manager, should know him well after this ordeal. The Home Depot store in located on the west side of Pearland on Highwayay 518.

If I could give them zero stars I would!

I ordered an electric dryer not realizing I needed a gas dryer. No biggie, when the dryer came I denied the delivery as instructed and called to order the gas dryer. I was assured by the sales representative that my card would not be charged for the electric dryer because it had not been "delivered." Fine, yes let's order the right one if you are sure I will not be charged twice. "No worries, if it does get charged, by the time the new charge is due to be deducted, your money for the electric dryer will be refunded automatically." Ok I ordered it.

Fast forward a week, check my account and I have bounced items, bank charges and a negative balance. Sure enough Home Depot charged me for both dryers. Called them and was told to wait 3 - 5 business days and the money would be refunded. On the 7th business day I call and was told, "We have to wait for the third-party vendor to refund us our money before we can refund your money." WHATTT????!!! What happened to the 3 - 5 business days, and why do I have to wait for a third party, I didn't pay a third party I paid Home Depot.

Needless to say, it is supposed to take another 3 - 5 business days to get my "refund." In the meantime, my account is in the negative with no end in sight, my bank can't do a thing until Home Depot refunds my account and all I keep getting from Home Depot is, Sorry. I will never make a big purchase with Home Depot, and I have made it my mission to tell everyone I know how horrible this company treats people!!

On 5-8-15 I went to the Home Depot in Salem Or (3021 Cherry Ave) to buy some outside plants. They were advertised for $7.88. When I looked at them they were too small for what I wanted to do. There was a display that had the flowers I wanted but were not a hanging basket. I have baskets and decided to get the plants and make my own baskets. The sign on the display said "marked down" from $9.88 to $2.88. Great deal, so I got four of them.

When I got home and checked the bill I was surprised to find out they were really $7.88 ea. I went back to the store and ask what happened to 2.88 The lady took me to the display and showed me the sign. I ask her so what it says 2.88. She informed me I was reading it wrong that they are 7.88 but the sign does look like 2.88. I am pissed and might shred my card and start shopping at LOWES. Not happy at all with you guys!

Had bought Ridgid Pressure washer model RD 80971 with an extended warranty. Ridgid gives a 3 year warranty plus the extended 2 years. Pressure washer pump stopped producing high pressure on 05/06/2015, so I called and they said the warranty was expired. The machine was bought on 12/19/2010 and that is only 4&1/2 years old. I faxed papers to you and I was told I would here IF they would repair on 05/13/2015. Then you would set up a repair date.

I waisted my money on this plan and expect my money back. I am having it fixed because I need to finish around the house before I go on Vacation. I DON'T have a month to waist on waiting for you to repair it. I expect a response and then will decide to cancel my credit card and have any future dealings with HD.

After consideration, feeling that Home Depot was a reputable company and under the assumption that they would staff competent and skilled professionals, I entered into a contract with them to provide what was called a “small” bathroom remodel project at my home. Home Depot assigned and directed this work to be performed by a third party contractor known as Romanoff Renovations. The project began Tuesday, September 2, 2014, and was estimated to take 4 or 5 days. Sadly this project escalated into a 6-week fiasco due to incompetence, negligence and mismanagement on the part of Romanoff Renovations personnel.

As a result the entire remodel is substandard and non-conforming to basic standards and practices. The drywall finishing is substandard, the shower curb tiles are misaligned and the entire shower structure is out-of-square. The glass shower surround key components were initially installed backwards and had to be re-ordered and re-installed. All of this was a direct result of Romanoff Renovations knowingly assigning duties to persons that were neither trained nor skilled to perform the work.

Six weeks later on, December 7, 2014, damage was discovered in the great room that shares a wall with the shower. The water pipe that connects to the shower head was not fitted properly. This connection was made by Romanoff Renovations personnel but not by the project plumber. This negligence caused a leak to occur every time the water to the shower was turned on. Water had destroyed all the wall insulation, the drywall and a large portion of our hardwood flooring in the great room and a portion of the bathroom wall adjacent to the shower. This damage was reported to my local Home Depot, as instructed on my contract, who in turn contacted Romanoff Renovations.

The local Field Manager contacted me and had a plumber come out and fix the leak, however, black mold was found throughout the wall, base molding and hardwood flooring and, therefore, a mold remediation company had to be contacted to perform mold removal at my home and air testing completed before repairs could be started. This required them to remove a large portion of the wall in our great room and bathroom and remove a large area of our hardwood flooring. Following that we had to have new drywall installed, taping, mudding and sanding performed over the next month requiring three (3) attempts to achieve acceptable results.

Damage to our hardwood flooring was so extensive that total replacement of the entire floor was the only option. Our current flooring had been discontinued and was no longer available so, over the next month, I was instructed to find new flooring. Each time I approached them with a possible material I received some reason they would not agree. A Regional Manager for Romanoff Renovations took over my case and told me I had to select flooring from Home Depot only, even though my current floor did not come from Home Depot or any other box store, and I was given a “not to exceed” cost per square foot. The amount allotted did not equal what my current floor was worth per square foot. When I objected, I was met with a “final settlement” monetary offer she stated was “fair market value”. I told her I did not want money, I wanted my home back the way it was before they damaged it. Even though Romanoff Renovations admitted total responsibility for all our damages they were not willing to provide satisfaction.

I once again contacted Home Depot for their help in resolving my damage issues. The local Store Manager attempted to help but was told by his District Service Manager that he would be taking over my case going forward. I was told he would be “reaching out” to me on several occasions and attempted to contact him several times but could not reach him or get him to call me back. I finally sent him a letter requesting nullification of my current Home Depot contract and a refund of the money I have already paid to date. In my Home Depot Contract it states that “Home Depot will attempt resolution of any claim within sixty (60) calendar days of receiving notice”, it also states that “Home Depot warrants the workmanship of the installation for one year from its completion date. During the warranty period Home Depot will repair, at no costs to consumer, any defects due to faulty workmanship.” I believe failure to honor these conditions constitutes nullification of my contract, however, when he finally did respond it was to reject this nullification. They were negligent in assisting with resolution to a problem caused by a party they employed to perform services on their behalf and they clearly violated the terms of their own contract. Now they are unwilling to offer satisfaction to me although I have incurred costs; not to mention mental anguish, physical illness, overwhelming disruption of our day-to-day living, etc. (too many to list on a single page.) They want their money.

This has been such a horrible experience and I do not want another consumer to go through this. It has consumed and wasted time in my life I can never get back. Neither the Home Depot District Manager nor Romanoff Renovations Regional Manager cared about my home or the stress and frustration this situation caused. They appeared only concerned about their bottom line. I found them both to be extremely unprofessional and condescending. So please reconsider before you ever allow any of these people to enter your home. I certainly wish I had the opportunity to reconsider.

I purchased a new Fridgedaire Range which was delivered today soon after lunch. At the time of purchase I was told that a new appliance cord was required for installation of a new range. I paid for the new cord ($22) at that time and it was to be delivered with the range.

Luckily, my kitchen wasn't ready for the installation and they left it for my remodeling guy to install. I went to check on the cord and found that I did not have a new cord but my old one was put on the new range. I would have never have discovered this if it had been installed. Feeling ripped-off, I called the appliance department of the Home Depot. I was informed that the new cord was needed or the warranty would be invalid. They said they could have a new one delivered on Friday. I said no way, it must be here today (Monday) or I would report a fraud. A subsequent return call revealed that a new cord would be delivered to me today. It was also revealed that the delivery person stated that he did not have a new cord on the truck and therefore installed my old one.

Why didn't he tell me that that was what he did? If this would void my warranty, why not say that someone would deliver the correct cord? OR - Why not tell me that I would get a credit for the undelivered new cord? He knew that it was on the delivery slip. He admitted to the salesperson that he know that I was to get it.

Later, the delivery guy called and said that he was on the way with the cord. Also, said that old cord use did not void the warranty. Still waiting for delivery person - wonder where he got the new cord from? He knows that I am pissed. He does not know that I will have a recorder recording every word that he says.

So, who is lying, Home Depot or delivery guy? He also said that Home Depot always tells customers that they must buy the new cord - but is is not needed. Is this an ongoing FRAUD? FRAUD by Home Depot and FRAUD facilitated by delivery people? Do they split the take?

We purchased a patio set from the online store as they did not carry size of table we needed or chairs in store - we selected the set from a larger display set - we did purchase the umbrella and stand within the Glen Mills, PA store on April 12, 2015. My husband is a Vietnam Veteran, they would not accept his license (which states he is a Vet), or the DD214 discharge form. Need to have an ID from the VA hospital or Vet Admin. - which forces us to use their doctors/hospital. This is discriminating. He served for 1 year in Artillery and put his life at risk. 10% discount is the least he deserves. Also, product when received in shipping was damages/legs dented and bent and tiles do not sit flat on table top & boxes were torn. We are NOT packing it up and shipping it back or paying for the cost of either. But your company needs to send a representative to our home to inspect it. That is real customer service.

I would like to make you aware of the issue I have encountered at a Home Depot store in Indianapolis.

My husband and I closed on our new home April 20th 2015. We went to Menards the same day to order 3-rail white vinyl fencing. We were told they could not get the posts here for 2-3 weeks. At that point, I called the Home Depot on High School Road in Indianapolis. I spoke with someone who called the distributer and assured me that if I ordered it through Home Depot and paid for it by end of day Tuesday, April 21st, it would be in by Friday, April 24th, 2015. This is crucial because my husband has taken off work from the 28th to the 2nd to help me put up this new horse fence.

I was told that they could not take my debit card information over the phone as it exceeded the 500$ limit. So I drove over an hour to the store Tuesday morning. Upon arrival, I asked an associate if they would price match with Menards as your posts are 24.97 and Menards are 17.99. I was told that you would not price match. I agreed to pay your price because I was assured the posts would be here that Friday. I paid for the entire order in full and was told I would receive a call when it arrived.

Fast forward to yesterday, April 28th, 2015. I called first thing in the morning to come pick up the posts. I was informed by a different associate that my order would not be in until May 5th. I explained that that was unacceptable and that I had been ASSURED it would be here by the end of the previous week. The associate said she would call the distributer and call me back. I never got a call. So my husband and I drove over an hour to the store to get some clarification.

Upon arrival, I spoke with Tony D, and assistant manager. He told me that there was no way that my order could or would be here before May 5th. He apologized profusely but couldn’t offer any solution other than 10% off my order. That does not solve the problem. I have spent over 1300$ on just posts for fencing, 130$ does nothing for me and is honestly insulting. Tony said he would try to look for another solution and promised to give us a call. Again, no one called me.

Today, Wednesday April 29th 2015. My husband and I are traveling to Terra Haute, Indiana, to pick up the remaining rails for the fence (your company doesn’t carry 16ft rails). I have yet to hear from your company so I called corporate. At around 9:15am I was connected with Yolanda. She listened to my issue and contacted the store manager. When she came back on the line she told me that the store manager, Erica, was on the phone with the distributer when I first placed the order and heard them say the posts would be delivered by Friday, April 24th, 2015. Yolanda put me on hold and continued speaking with Erica. Yolanda came back several times while I was on hold and updated me as to what was going on. By the end of the call (9:32am), I was informed that Erica was in contact with the distributer and she would call me back with shipping information with in an hour. She did not call me back.

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015 11:31am. I called Erica back and she said that the distributer told her it was being put on today’s truck and should be there tomorrow but to call back before 2:30pm to get confirmation that it got on the truck. Erica told me that she would call me back with that confirmation. I thanked her and hung up. She did not call me back with confirmation.

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015 2:43pm. I called Erica again to check on the confirmation. I was told she just got back from lunch and needed to call the distributer then she would call me back. At 2:54pm Erica called me back to tell me that the post did NOT make the truck today and they would “hopefully” make tomorrow's truck. I asked Erica if it would have made a difference if she would have called BEFORE 2:30 as the distributer had asked her to do. She said she didn’t think it would have. She told me that she repeatedly asked to speak to a manager and was told they were in meetings all day thus not available. I asked when I could expect the posts. She said it would “hopefully” go out tomorrow and would take 1-2 business days to get here. She then told me that she would give me a call tomorrow afternoon with an update.

I then tried to call Yolanda back at the number and extention she gave me but only got her voicemail. She had said to call her if things were not resolved. So I left a message for her to call me back at 3:22pm. She did not call me back.

My issue has not been resolved. It is about to be Thursday, April 30th and we are without posts for our fencing. My husband works for the USPS and only gets one day off of work every 2 weeks. His next day off is Mothers Day and we will be putting up dog fence that day. This week was scheduled time off of work that could not be rescheduled.

We must get this horse fence up this week. If we do not get these post by Friday, we will not be able to put up the fencing ourselves. I cannot put this fence up myself once my husband goes back to work as we have a 5 month old son that I care for. This means that we will have to pay for someone to install the fencing before May 12th so that we can move our horses to our new property when we move.

Because your company has dropped the ball numerous times, I would like this situation resolved quickly and adequately. I am losing money by ordering these posts through Home Depot. I am losing money by having to hire someone to install this fencing if your store cannot get me the posts by Friday May 1st. My husband has lost money by taking off of work and not getting this project done. Due to these facts, I would like you to either get me these posts by Friday morning May 1st or pay for the fencing to be installed once the posts arrive.

My father-in-law purchased a Powermate Tiller on 03/22/2014 for $311.79. He is retired from the military and is 78 years old. He and his wife live on a fixed income each month. Each year he can't wait for me to plow and help him plant his garden. He has used the very old worn out tiller for 25 years.

Last year, he decided to purchase a new tiller from Home Depot. He normally makes his purchases at Lowes, but this time I talked him into spending his money at Home Depot. We used the tiller for about 3 hours last year. We then winterized the tiller according to the manual.

We started to use this tiller this spring, and it will not run longer than 20 seconds. I went to the local store in Danville, Virginia to return this tiller and get a new one. I did this at the beginning of March, less than a year since the purchase. They told me the store warranty was only 30 days; therefore, I would have to bring it to the store and they would send it off to be fixed. They told me this would take at least 3 weeks. They also gave me an option to drive it 60 miles myself and drop it off.

This was heart breaking since my father-in-law was ready to start the garden process. He swore he would not spend his money at Home Depot again if this wasn't corrected. I also spend money at Home Depot and I tend to agree. If we had made the purchase from Lowes, we would have had a year to return it to the store. Once again, the tiller still appeared new with only 3 hours of work used on it. I feel I am responsible since I persuaded him to make the purchase at Home Depot. Please Let me know what I should do?

I worked for HICKMAN for assembly of gas grills at the Dearborn Heights and Southgate, Michigan HOME DEPOT locations and I have never been paid. Many phone calls have been placed, time submitted as stated to do, and I would like to know how to proceed with filing a complaint. My own personal Tools were taken by workers, I was told that a check was in the mail almost a month ago. Has anyone else had this problem??

I wanted to have a Gate Replaced at my home and was scheduled to have a home estimate. The contractor was late and dismissive. And at the end of the conversation, I was told they would reply to me in writing an estimate. After waiting a week for a reply I presented to the store. The response I got from the company was that not our department. I was given a 1-800 number which I called and spoke with a CS rep who tried to call contractor they did not answer the phone at 4:40 in the after noon. I guess it is Miller time. I was treated as if I was unimportant which is contrary to the mission statement of home depot. I does not matter how good your products are if the staff don't care about what they are doing.

I purchased a vacuum cleaner with a 2 year warranty and the manager was very rude. he said that my warranty didn't start until after the manufactured warranty and refused to give me my money back even though I had receipts of purchase and extended warranty. This person even embarrassed me by telling me I was talking to loud to him. I want justice done on this matter or else I will go as high as it takes to see my boss handled appropriately.

On 11/08/2013 i purchased two frigidaire wall ovens. Today 4/22/2015 i turned the lower oven on and it is making a loud noise. I called the eldorado home depot and explained to one of the sales reps what was happening. She looked up information told me i had an extended contract that would cover repaires. I called 800-466-3337 and was transferred to a trouble shooter named sandy she asked me if i could turn off the breaker to the oven and i told her i could not because i did not know which breaker it is. I told her my husband was not home to assist me she asked me if could wait until he comes home and he turns off the breaker i told her no.

She then said to me that if a service person comes and if the breaker reset the oven i would have to pay for the service. I told her i did not agree because i had an extended warranty. In a very nasty tone she said to me you don't have a warranty you have a service plan. I immediately said to her give me a manager or some one other than you because you an i cannot get along she stated certanily and put jeff on the phone. Jeff comes on the phone and said to me sandy is right and if you dont know the difference between a service plan an a warrant i will explain it to you. Hearing jeff say this made me very upset and i told him i did not call to get to learn the difference between a warranty and a service plan. And that i wanted some one to come out and service my oven. In his ugly tone he told me that he would set up a service but i would pay it what is wrong was not under my plan.

I am very angry at sandy, jeff, and venessa because instead of them addressing my problem they a talking down to me and trying to educate me on the difference between a warranty and a service plan when all of this was said and done my problem was not solved. My over is yet screaming. Jeff said to me i will give you an appointment but it will be just like sandy said you will pay if it is the breaker. I hung up on jeff and called back to the department and i asked for a manager. I was given venessa. Venessa was also laid back and making sure she keep in tune with the two reps but i told her that i was no longer calling about the service i was calling about how i was talked to by jeff and sandy. In a very no caring voice she said she would address this issue.

Then she went on to tell me that they were right to try an trouble shoot before service what i have to do before a service person comes out should be explained to me before i buy a warranty oh no correction service plan. Because of the insults i relieved by all three of these reps. I am going to go back to the store and request my money back. It is my goal cancel this warranty oh my bad service plan or what ever you all names it. I am so pissed that i want to say bad words curse words is not my first language. I was born in the error that the customer is always right and i have spent my hard earned money for something that requires me to climb in a crawl space find breaker and then i will be given the service i paid for. I have been a customer of home depot for 20 years. I will not accept or tolerate any down talk from any one i give respect and i demand respect. As you read this you too may be like jeff, sandy, and venessa you may not care about how i feel. But there is a god that sits high and he looks low and he see service contracts written that cannot be used by customer when needed. This is a sad thing.

I am so angry that i will not come back to home depot any more if you check my track record from california to arkansas i have rentals that all merchandise is purchased at home depot however there is other places i can spend my hard earned money. People like jeff, sandy, and venessa should not be allowed to communicate with a customer that are in need of immediate service. They haven't learned how to talk to customers and address there needs.hours later i am yet in my kitchen listening to a singing oven. I am not pleased with the service i have recieved from your warranty oh i mean service plan. When i bought this warranty i thought i would be able to use it without having to solve the problem my self.
I am a mad customer with a singing oven in eldorado arkansas.

On Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 2:49pm, I bought a 10 FT Harper Gazebo, along with other items from Home Depo at 150 Midland Ave, Portchester, NY 10573, Manager Trevor Meinke. They said it will be delivered Mon. April 20th. I called when there was no delivery. They said it rained and there were no deliveries made. On Tuesday, everything was delivered except the Gazebo. Home Depot Delivery man stole the Gazebo. I paid over $2,000.00 for merchandize on Saturday, and I did not get my item! That is Grand Theft. Home Depot, you are a thief. You are responsible for all employees. I have to call the police and get Attorney's involved. Why should I have to do this. I just want my Gazebo delivered this week.

Order ID 1212-360058 1,072.68, SKU#1000-023-721 10 FT Harper Gazebo. The store Inventory is not updated. Now, they tell us that it's on back order but on Saturday it was not. You need to fire every manger who does make sure inventory is updated, delivery items are moved immediately from store floor so they won't be sold. The Gazebo was there on Saturday and now its on back order. Home Depot doesn't care at all, its just another stolen item at another store. Home Depot's Motto "more savings, more doing"--well its like "more slacking & more stealing and no doing."

Purchased quite a few items as this used to be my store for home repair. I went to check out and was having a problem with one of the items. The item was grass sod. Apparently, there was no sku on the sod only a price. I was told by the cashier to go find a sku for the product or it could not be purchased. When my wife looked around for help, none was to be found. I was told by several employees that it would be a while before it could be found. Cashier was pretty annoyed by now and was told that the sod could not be purchased, and I would have to come back because I was holding up the line. Can you imagine that? I left my 400.00 worth of purchases at the check-out, asked for the store manager who was out to lunch, and drove off. I never will shop at Home Depot again!!!

I purchased a set of shower doors and the installer did a terrible job with the installation. I went into the Commack, seeking help and possibly someone to take care of these doors for me with a proper installation. A lady named Nancy listened to my dilemma, and I was told she would have someone come to my home with a NEW set of doors and install them free of charge and return my original purchase for the old doors.

She came to my home 2 days later with a man named Peter, and my wife said they brought in a new set of doors. I was at my job at the time. When I returned home a few hours later, my wife said the new doors were not installed and that they put them back in the truck. They supposedly repaired the old doors and left. At that time, the doors were worse than before they did the so-called repair. When I went back to the store on Friday evening at 6pm, I spoke to the manager on duty and told her my story. She said she new about the situation, and that she was told that new doors were installed. They Never were as I stated. I still have the OLD Doors and the same off the track problem.

At this time, I threw up my hands and knew Home Depot would DO NOTHING about this fiasco and the night manager got very huffy. This is not a good story to go around, and I would like to know WHAT HAPPENED to the new doors that were never installed. Were they used for another use for someone else?? I still have not received my credit I was promised for the junk doors I now have hanging in my bathroom with a wife that has M.S. I'm sure you know what that means, and I know no one at home depot cares. I intend on contacting the better business bureau, consumer affairs, and small claims court about this matter of lies and phony promises. I have been a customer of home depot for years but will never buy another item from your franchise again.

My name is Dominick Iannizzotto and you can check your records for my purchases for many years. I will eat the $215.00+ and advise my family friends and neighbors of this fiasco.

Today, I visited home depot and purchased a hanging plant. When I left the store and got to my truck, I was stopped by a young man who came running from the store and said to me "show me your receipt". I replied, "why and who are you?"..he said "I am security for home depot" I said show me your ID, he refused and to prevent an altercation, I showed my receipt. I returned to the store in shock, but most of all deeply humiliated because, this person was really accusing me of stealing. I am a senior citizen who go in home depot 1 or 2 times a day. I spend a ton of money in this store, I am extremely angry that I would be approached in that manner.

I can clearly understand asking to see a receipt at the door when leaving the store, but at my truck, as if he expected to catch me with a stolen item. I remain in disbelief that I was profiled as a possible thief. This is unacceptable. In today's society I understand and appreciate security, but please train them on how and when to approach people. This incident could have ended with me in handcuffs being accused of something that I have never done in my 73 years on earth, stealing.. I patronize this store because I would like it to stay in Jackson, but I will not be humiliated and spend my money.

On 2/10/15 I went to Home Depot to buy a hot water heater. I found the one I wanted (sku0000-100-979) and when I went to pay, they asked if I wanted installation. I asked what that would be, and they said $892.00. I thought that was high and told the women at the checkout counter. She said that also included a $200.00 permit required by the City and if I found an independent installer it would be required as well. She said if I didn't pay it there were stiff fines as much as $600.00. Based on that information, I paid $892.10, with an install date of 2/12/15. I asked for a breakdown of the charges, they gave me a receipt of the bundled $892.10 with no explanation of the permit.

On 2/12/15 the installer came as planned and efficiently changed out the h/w heater in 30 minutes. There was no paperwork left with a permit number so I called Home Depot and asked about it. I spoke to a manager at the store I purchased it, and he ensured me the cost included a "required" $200 permit fee. I called the installation company and they said they weren't sure of the permit fee and would call me back. The next day I called them back and they told me I didn't pay a permit fee. I asked for a breakdown of what the $892.10 involved and again I received a bundled invoice. I called Home Depot back they said they would get back to me. I received a message on my phone while I was on vacation from Dee saying she sent me a copy of my invoice to my email address. AGAIN a bundled invoice with no description of what the charges were for. I am very disappointed in this scam! Had I known I didn't need to pay a $200 permit fee, I would never have agreed to the $892.00 charge. I believe this practice is fraudulent and a misrepresentation of city code requirements! If Home Depot wasn't acting in a fraudulent manor the invoice wouldn't be bundled into one charge and the charges would be transparent! Shame on you Home Depot!

On 03/08/2015 I purchased two Highline Wht Complete Toilets from your store in Fayetteville, Ga. They contracted with Bynum and Sons Plumbing, Inc. to remove two toilets from my home and install the new toilets that I purchased from your company. On 03/17/2015 Bynum installed one toilet in the master bedroom bathroom and before 7:00 p.m. that night the bathroom floor was covered with water. I removed the soaked rugs and replaced them to make sure that the toilet was leaking and yes water continued to cover the floor. I attempted to contact Bynum but there was a message that stated it was after hours. I contacted them the next morning and the receptionist stated that the service would be a recall. I had to leave work in order to meet the plumber at my home. The plumber came and corrected the problem.

On 03/06/2015 the second toilet overflowed when it was flushed with only urine in it. Again, I attempted to contact Bynum but heard the after hour message. I then contacted the Fayetteville Store and they said they would contact Bynum again. However, I contacted Bynum before Home Depot did and spoke to the receptionist and explained the problem with the second toilet. She explained that the plumber could not come before Friday. I explained that I had appointments on Friday, then she said the plumber would be at my home between 3 and 6 p.m. on Thursday. The plumber did not show up nor did he call. I again was inconvenience. I am disappointed with the manner in which the person you contracted to install the toilets that I purchased from your company is completing the job. Please help me in getting this situation resolved. I can not leave work early and I can not take off work.

On March 31, 2015, I purchased a new toilet at your Porter, Texas Store; invoice number 6523-239121. I paid for toilet, delivery and installation. On April 2, 2015 ARS Plumbing Company was given the assignment to do the work. The Plumber, Domingo Lopez, called prior to coming and in that first phone call he stated the box had been crushed and that I knew about it. This is his first lie. I picked out a toilet from display only and Home Depot did not call me to say the box was damaged. When the plumber arrived I asked if the toilet was damaged and he said no. I checked it and could not see anything. I questioned him twice, are you sure you are with Home Depot to install my toilet and he said he is Home Depot. He started to change his tone. I did not care for his attitude, so I showed him the bathroom. He removed the toilet quickly and called me to the bathroom to see the corroded flange. He said, this will need to be changed out. I said, ok change it. He said well, it will cost you more for installation and I asked how much is that? He said around $600.00. I said, so what is the real price, $6.00 to $12.00 for a flange? He repeated the total and I said, show me where that is the price. He went to his truck and made a phone call . He turned to a page and said, $675.00 I immediately called Home Depot and asked to speak to the manager and I spoke to Tammy. I told her that Lopez is trying to strong-arm me and to pay a huge amount for a $6,00 flange. She said that can't be right. Let me call ARS and I will call you back. At that time, I was trying to explain to Lopez that my paperwork states: IN SOME INSTANCES, EXISTING PLUMBING FLANGES, SUPPLY VALVES, ETC MAY REQUIRE OR UPGRADE TO BE FUNCTIONAL AND CODE COMPLIANT. WE WILL DISCUSS OPTIONS AND POSSIBLE ADDITIONAL CHARGES WITH YOU IF THIS OCCURS. WE mean HOME DEPOT. That is who I have a contract with, not ARS Plumbing Company. No one at Porter, Texas store would discuss how much more for a new flange. I feel totally cheated and pushed around by you and ARS Plumbing.
Tammy called and stated that she could not do anything about it. I told her my paperwork on page 3 did not show a price list for a replacement of a flange. She had no resolve for me. I argued with Lopez on the issue of having this work inspected. He said yea when a replacement is warranted, but they don't have enough inspectors to go around. I was so frustrated and outdone on this situation and felt I was being pushed around from an outside company like ARS. Since they are representing Home Depot, I feel Home Depot don't care how ARS treat customers.
I reluctantly let this horrible company put a $675.00 flange in because I did not have a choice. My 94 year old dad needed this toilet to use because he is unable to walk that well and this bath is very close for his use.
I watched Lopez replace the flange. I helped clean the area where the old flange had been removed. I helped to clean the tile around area also.
Lopez installed a new flange and had a bit of difficulty in drilling in the screws into the concrete around the main drain. He place that blue liquid around the pvc and laid the flange on the concrete. He did not put caulking around the flange that lay on the concrete.
After he was finished, he said that the concrete around the drain was like sand and I should watch for leaks. Well, I said, what do I do with that????
He said, I'm just saying, just check it often. Well, I'm really upset now, will I have watch My toilet all day to see if it leaks?
On Monday, April 6, 2015, I went to the City of Houston Permit office in Kingwood, Texas to ask if they let ARS Plumbing slide on their installations because the city don't have enough inspectors. They said definitely not. The assistant give me a phone number to talk to the City of Houston Assistant Chief, Mr. Carlos; (832-394-8870). Mr. Carlos indicated that if a new flange is warranted due to damages, and anytime a further repair is needed. a permit is required.
I want the Regional Manager for The Home Depot to hear my plea for help on this situation I'm in. I was not treated fairly, nor did I get the reasonable price for a flange from your store nor did anyone care to resolve this . The asst. manager in Porter office indicated that they don't put companies like ARS Plumbing Company on a list for installations, the home office make that call.
Your help is truly needed and I want the $675.00 taken off my Home Depot credit card. My balance at the time of this purchase was $152.00 AND now its $1,100.00 for a $178.00 toilet. I feel so mistreated, disrespected and lied too. Please help me .

This isn't as much a complaint as it is suggestion. I was in your Bennington Vt Store buying some 4X4's. They too high for me to reach so I ashed for help. There where 3 guys standing around not really doing much. One of them came over with no problem and got me a latter so I could climb up and get them myself. I'm white haired and 70+ years old, it would have been nice if the worker climbed up and handed them down to me. He was many in his 50s and should have known better. I'm just saying. I love your stores and wish you the best...

Exactly two years ago I purchased a heating system from Home Depot,and within the required eighteen (18) months, I paid it off. Since that time I have had to call for service at least six (6) times, and on each occasion it cost me some money, some times as much as two hundred (200}dollars. As I write this complaint I have been without heat for the past three weeks. I had to use space heaters the first two weeks of this last dilemma, and I am still without heat as I write this complaint. This is the worst heating system I have ever had, and I have had several in my different homes. The mere fact that the system is suppose to be new makes it even worst. Home Depot had no problem cashing my checks' and and receiving the entire pay off within the allotted eighteen {18) months, but they seem to have difficulty providing a reliable heating and air conditioning system. Last July the air was not working and it destroyed my first,last and only 72 year patriarchal birthday party, The system has been operating as if it may have been a used system or one that has been re-manufactured. Therefore, after six (6} inconveniences in a two year period, I will be seeking relief from Home Depot in the form of a replacement. Furthermore, since this failure and detestable situation has occurred, I have had to sleep in other than favorable conditions which could have been the cause of the colds that I have experienced during that period of time, This lack of customer service and satisfaction is going into the fourth (4) week. I want my money back or a new system. In closing I'd like to say that I am appalled at this treatment and this is the type of thing that makes for very bad press.for ARS and Home Depot.

We had two windows and a patio door installed. We have had some one come back on the door three times. It was icing over and air coming in. Pictures were taken and we were told they would be sent to head office and to Stanley. We have not heard back from either. Customer service has being poor at best. It has being I am sorry pass the buck or cover your butt. We will never shop at home depot again. We were told that Stanley made a good door. This one is poor or badly installed. The three visits have being band aid fixes. This experience has not being even a one star

right before x-mas we bought a dryer from home depot, which used to be our favorite store. we just bought an older house. a lot of appliances are old. the men who delivered could not hock it up, due to wrong wire. They said leave both old and the new one here. we will give you a number and someone will pick up old dryer any time free of charge.after few days my hubby hocked up the new home depot dryer. my hubby and I called a few times to have old dryer picked up. the home depot staff said we will get back to you when we are in your area. waited couple of weeks called again same answer. then I called they of too late now we can't pick it up free of charge. Then after I spoke with a few supervisors, home depot said ok for 25 bucks they would pick up old dryer. I said ok,very good ( I always talked nice) then they said no we cant because I waited too long! I explained how many time I called and no one would give us a pick up date. this was a false promise by the home depot!! now we have 2 dryers in my basement. we now need a refrigerator. I don't think we should shop at home depot . what do you think? t

We had roller shade blinds installed in our vacation home in Lake Tahoe CA. The install was done we we were not there; a friend let them in the house. Home Depot had an installer they contract with do the installation. When we got up here to the house a month later, half of the shades won't role up all the way, one shade fell down and one shade was never installed, but we paid Home Depot for the work and the contractor that installed the blinds won't return our calls and all Home Depot says is that they will call the contractor and have them call us. This has been going on for four months now. Home Depot should take responsibility for this poor work performed by the contractor, but they are not doing so. The Home Depot store is located in Carson City, Nevada.

I am a general contractor in North Cariolina and I have a home owner that purchased appliances in Orlando Florida . He had the appliances ship to the Hendersonville NC store and I have the PO #and invoice # but the hendersonville store can not pull up the numbers . They said there computer systems do not inter change with one another . (That has been a big headache for me ) They finally were able to find the appliances and we got them set up for delivery on Thursday . They only brought out part of them . We got the other set up for Saturday and then they shorted me 6 items . Took me 2 weeks to finally got them which is not good. They left 3 items that had been canceled and have been given the money back for . They are not ours to keep and I have a dryer that has a dint in the front BUT they don't want to take them back because the where not purchased at the Hendersonville store . The problem is it is two Home Depot stores that are competing against one another FL store made the sale and the NC is going to lose money on them . They are not worried about the customer, only the store . I live 40 miles away one way and have made 5 trips over there . I have called and called each time they take my # and never call back . This job is on a tight schedule and this mess has delayed to job by a month.

Three weeks ago (approximately) I purchased a "smiling face " sponge. (AShark Tank) product. It was the last one in stock. This is the store in Bartonsville, PA. I had wanted to buy at least two. The sales person was sure another shipment would arrive soon. Today (two weeks later) I stopped by to purchase more for my daughters and myself and none were in the store as yet. The salesperson was very diligent and got the manager on his cell beside asking other salespeople,but no satisfaction. Why was the store out of stock?

I purchased a storm door about six months ago if not less. The store door has dislocated from the bottom of the base board four times. Today being the fourth. Your repair man keeps repairing it the same way everytime. The bottom portion of the base board riped out from the door way the first time the door came off. A hollow space was left when the base board separated from the doorway. Whenever your repair man has come to repair the door he constantly puts another board over top of the old base board where the space is. He proceeds to put nails in the base board but never fills in the space left behind from when the door originally came apart. The wear and tear from opening and closing the door puts stress on the bottom portion of the baseboard until it comes apart. The door has fractured the exact same way as it did before. Can you give me my money back or send a person out who will repair the door correctly? I have pictures if you would like to see.

March 23,2015 I found a Cub Cadet ZT riding lawn mower for about $2700 and went to local store and asked they order it for me. Theu proceeded to order it and when the price was displayed found that it was a clearance item for $1777 and I told them to order it for me. I was told the mower would be in by 3-31, I went to store on 4-1 and after waiting about 35 minutes was told the mower had not been ordered because the store could not order clearance items. Apparently they were not aware of this rule. I came home and tried to order the item on line and found that it was available but no longer at clearance price. I am very frustrated and believe I should be allowed to buy this item at the clearance price. I would appreciate an immediate reply. Thank you, Charlene Warren

March 23 2015 I had found a Cub Cadet Zturn riding lawn mower on Home Depot web sight for $2700 (approx.) so I went to local store and asked them to order it for me. They proceeded with order and found that it was a clearance item for $ $1777.00 so I asked them to order it. Told me it would we delivered to store by March 31st. Meantime I received a bill by e mail, so went to store on 4-1-15 and after a long wait, was told that it was not ordered because the store could not order clearance items, I came home and tried to order the mower myself and found the item was in stock but was no longer clearance price and I would have to pay full price. My experience was totally unfair and entire transaction mishandled. The local store employees apparently were unaware the store could not order clearance items and in their defense were not aware of this until 4-1 when I went to pick up the mower.

On March 24,2015, I bought a Garage door to be installed by you ( Home Depot) from your located store of East Meadow, New York, store # 1201.
Of course I paid for the door and the installation and for Medallion Hardware Upgrade, The sales person explained about the upgrade charges and how important to have it. Next day or day after a man came to my house and look to the old garage door and to measure the size and left. Two days after a man came to install the new door and when he was done, he left the old door on the side of the house .I asked him why he is not taking it with him, he said: he is not suppose to take it.
When I bought this door (new) 20 years ago (old door) , the installation company then took the old door without asking of me. Therefore when I bought the new door from Home depot, I did not talk to the salesperson if they taking the old door or not because I thought this is the norm.
The sales person never mention any thing about removal the old door. I called the salesperson on the store, she claimed that she told me about taking old door for extra charges, and promise me to call back because she had another line on hold. Two days are gone and of course she did not called. Now I am stock with old door.
I called the collection Garbage of my town, they requested the door to be cut to pieces not long that 4 feet by 4 feet.
I am an old man (73) and I suppose to take care of that.
This is the services I got from ( your subcontract and the salesperson)
Honest, I wish I never bought the door from you store and probably do not buy any thing from store in the future. And I have to learn the salesperson's tricks , and games they play.
Thanks for listening to my complaint

We purchased granite for countertops on 3/22 at the Mohegan Lake , NY receipt number 1251-548150. We were told that in 3 days someone will contact us for an appointment to make the template. After numerous calls we have yet to have an appointment. We need an appointment this week as it will then take 3 weeks to come and install. We need someone to get back to us ASAP. We are extremely angry at how we have been treated . This is not a way to do business!

I wish to lodge a formal complaint about how you people discriminate with your handling of what you consider to be a "veteran" when giving a discount. I proudly served in the US Navy for 11 years in the 70's and 80's. I asked for the veteran discount at your store here in Kerrville TX today and was told I didn't qualify while showing them a copy of my DD214 honorable discharge in 1981. Basically they told me I wasn't the "right kind" of veteran. Please explain to me what makes me not a veteran. I will not return to Home Depot. And, will stop using your credit card. Respectfully, but, honestly disappointed with that kind of treatment.

Over the last 18 months i have purchased in excess of $40,000 as a single consumer vs a business, in renovation material for 2 homes from home depot in north Miami Beach Florida.
Though my experience with the facility has been truly magnificent, specifically when dealing with certain outstanding individuals; Shauna Brady, Sam in the windows dept. They should be commended for trying so hard to resolve the issue considering limitations. However, my issue is with your third party provided of windows and doors, TM Windows. I purchased in excess of &10,000 for one renovation project in particular from homedepot/TmWindows. All were installed by my installer. One door in particular, front door, was mistakenly installed incorrectly by us initially. Seperately we noticed that the lock mechanism on this door did not work properly.

We contacted tm windows (through homedepot), their representative, Scott informed us that they did not have time to send someone out, he instructed us (and considering house was under renovation) to rig the lock shut by taping it, since he would get to us for 3-4 weeks out. We did as instructed, in the mean time, during renovation the house was broken into and sevreral tools, appliances were stolen. This incident prompted me to call Tm again and escalate the request. At that point they made is go through home depot again, to place another "ticket" for service.
Once they contacted me again (after numerous calls and emails ftom myself and folks at nmb home depot) they sent their guy. He brought a new lock installed and informs us door was installed wrong way.

I contacted them before paying to have door reinstalled in hopes that they might offer some guidance (i did not request they install or even guide the installation). They became so incensed by my requests that it prompted a torrent of disrespectful and useless emails from their management, Michael Arrango. I can provide if necessary. All along, all i was asking for was reassurance before i paid an installer that doors would be installed correctly, they refused.I hired another installer snd re-installed the door. Again only to find that the locking mechanism was still defective. Again this prompted a new set of email exchange, to the degree that Mr arrango became incredibly rude, sarcastic and delusional considering what he claimed they had done and what had actually occurred. Recap: they only sent 1 person out, once.. Installed new lock. He claimed they had completely gone out of their way. I do have over 20 email exchanges, perhaps this is efforts he is referencing.

At the end of the day, we still have a defective lock. They have not solve a problem that has taken an inordinate amount of time and my effort. It is disappointing when one deals with a respectable company such as home depot and then discovers that we are really dealing with companies that are non customer centric and irresponsible. It defeats the home depot slogan.. "Do it yourself" when a service provider of the home depot compromises those efforts. Their approach it seems us to maintain a complete "hands off" the problem for feat that they might have to take back a door or worse yet go through the exercise to send someone out again.

Seems to me (as a business owner) that the cost of solving such a problem could have been addressed easier, cheaper and faster initially if they have taken the time to send someone out again and just provided guidance to a legitimate "good" and valuable consumer/customer of the home depot. I am still in talks with tm Windows and their distasteful Manager Michael Areango. I am hoping they will resolve. As a consumer just thought i needed to advise you on your choice of providers, disgraceful!

I just had the worst customer service experience at store #8440 in Wilmington, Delaware. My girlfriend attempted to purchase me the current offer being run by DEWALT of the 12inch, 15 amp miter saw model #DWS780 (store sku #190262, currently 6 in stock) with the free stand DEWALT model #DWX723 (store sku #235294, currently 6 in stock) as a surprise. She went to the store and visually saw that they were both in stock this afternoon. She came home and attempted to order them online. However, the buy one get one offer is not available for immediate store pick up option at the store (it is at the local Lowes). She came home and ordered it online for store pick up, but it said that she had to wait to for the items to be shipped. She thought no big deal take the email and the store will honor it, if it is in stock. Wrong!!!! Not only was it not honored, there was no effort by the customer service to even attempt to honor it.

I presented all appropriate paperwork, was told both items were in stock, but because it was supposed to be “delivered to store” that I had to wait until it was. After confirming both items were in the store, I attempted to politely explain the situation, however it got me know where. I asked to have the order cancelled and I would go to Lowes, and the customer service representative said “fine: but I have to call and cancel the order. She called the number to cancel the order and they asked her a series of questions. I could tell when they got to why the customer wants to cancel because she paused and I said “tell the truth” and she didn’t. This is the last straw for me. Unfortunately, this store is very convenient for me. I know several of the employees on a first name basis (I also work part-time for a contractor), but from now on, I will drive the extra mile to go to Lowes.
Bottom line, what was ordered was in stock at the store, I had an email saying it was purchased, but because of faults on Home Depots end I am without a product. I will take my money elsewhere.

On 3/19, I had a washer/dryer set delivered to my home. The installer initially refused to install the washer, stating the connections needed to be replaced. To demonstrate, he twisted something, spewing water all over the floor of the laundry room. When I told him to hook it up because I had a plumber coming the next day, he couldn't get out of there fast enough. Left the room in a mess, water everywhere, failed to position the appliances (which I had to do), and after cleaning the water, found that my linoleum had been damaged when they moved the old washer out. Plumber checked all today and stated that everything was just fine, there was nothing wrong w/the connections. Sleazy and unprofessional - and cardboard and Styrofoam debris in the street in front of my house. WO# 1HSS131760, my order # 8572-120385. I am requesting that I be reimbursed for the floor. This was a very traumatic thing to go through. Would be happy to provide picture of damage upon request. Thank you. As it is, I would not refer Home Depot to anyone right now.

I had two windows Installed $1000.00 for one. They were installed Jan. 26 2015. It is now March 10,2006. The springs??? on one Window do not work, Broken. The second Window has a couple defects in the bottom Glass. They have been telling me since the day installed, two to three weeks. The Springs that came in finally, were the wrong color, White instead of Bronze, to match my windows. Had to re-order. Twice, I have informed them about the glass in the second window. And as of today March 10th , since Jan 26, 2015, no one seems to know about the order. I was told it had been ordered. Guess what nobody has any paper work.

Really, for such a Large Company, they are very poorly organized and the communication is pretty sucky. Also the Caulking around the New Windows have been done Three Times, they just keep putting the Caulking over the old. Instead of removing and putting it around new. What I expect is my Windows done correct, since its been 1 1/2 Months. And for the Cost, I expect at least $500.00 refund for my Stress and not getting this job completed by now. Taking time staying Home waiting for Home Depot. This is so pitiful and unacceptable. I Will Never Buy a Screw from Home Depot. I think I have already been Screwed. Home Depot is a very poor excuse for a Company.

I just stopped by my local Home Depot on the way back to the shop to pick up a few items. I had thing that I needed and on the way out I went through the tool /hardware section. They had some Ryobi sale items in the main isle that interested me. We had just purchased a the Ryobi Lithium drill set a week earlier so I was curious about what other items they might have on sale. So I walked down to the power tool isle where all the other Ryobi tools were displayed. I did not stay long. The constant alarm ringing in this section was a major distraction to my concentration to the products. I thought it was crazy to treat regular customers like common thieves by asserting their right to video and have the loud beeping indicator to let you know they were videoing. I spoke to the sales guy working in that department and he stated that they had to by law notify us they were recording. I said OK. I am notifying you that I will not be treated like a common thief and I will no longer be shopping at Home Depot. I liked it better when they had the tool corral. In the old days they had enough employees to be in the department at all times and monitor the area. I wonder why there is not beeping all over the store since they are monitoring us with all the other camera they have.

Any if I was Ryobi I would pull my inventory or maybe pay a little more for a better spot that is away from this distraction. I have had it with Home Depot but love Ryobi. Where to go now. No I won't shop on line with them either.

Purchased a refrigerator December9, 2014. Began having problems with the water filter within a few days was a loud annoying noise. Called after the Christmas holidays lodged a complaint. Was informed by Home Depot it was the manufacturers problem to fix during the first year of service. Home Depot provided a number of a shop that fixes G.E. appliances in my area. They set up the first service call by 1/23/2015. The technician was a 25 year veteran worked on the refrigerator but could not resolve the problem had to return the following week January 27, 2015 for another try at repairing the noise. This time he stated he needed to order parts and did so. He returned on February 6, 2015 to install parts but was made aware by my wife before he left that the noise continued. Have been in touch with G.E.'s twice since then but we were told a chief engineer must come out and make a determination. We were never informed of when this would take place and for the most part have been put on hold all the while we are paying over $1200.00 for this appliance. We seek that they take the refrigerator back and credit our account.

Extremely bad costumer service (1160 Sherman way location). Jose G. Who was supposedly helping me for renting an equipment was very rude for no reason, didn't help out with the carry out at all, and when I retured the equipment 1:23 min late instead of him charging me hourly he charged me for an extra day, even though the invoice he gave me gives an hourly payment rate of 16.71 instead he charged me $65.00 more, replaying that it is the policy of Home Depot! Will not use their services anymore.

Purchased 8/15/12 Home Depot CS CO $1698 incl HD ext war. Within 2 mo's of purchase started having problems with cooling & icemaker. Please note this unit is not overused (1individual gone 6 mo's yr) or abused (no minors). Contacted store w/concern told to call Maytag warranty. Purchaser left for winter residence 12/12 - returned 6/13. Immediate problems. $1100 compressor & condenser need plus new icemaker. Alarmed by such extensive expensive problems to brand new fridge went back to store to ask for new fridge. Told nothing could be done until Maytag warranty over. Both Kevin HD appl sales & Mike Leonard mgr (both wonderful guys) stated knowing the troubles w/both Maytag warranty & the fridge stated "e are so much better once HD warranty kicks in 1 problem & we will switch it out for a new fridge". NOTHING could be farther from the truth.

We are now 1/2 yrs into the HD warranty. Over $2200 worth of parts & labor -literally everything has been replaced but the box it came in & it's still not working. Dealing with BOTH Maytag & Home Depot warranty companies are time consuming & labor intensive. Terrible frustrating maddening hair pulling blood boiling customer service. There is no need to provoke decent hardworking good paying customers to rage over such awful dissatisfaction. The worst game of pass the buck kick the can down the road circle jerk ever encountered. You should all be ashamed. Both warranty companies claim the service repair company will assess the need for a new fridge.

The service repair company denies that saying they are only authorized to make repairs. Met w/Greg HD store mgr 1/24/15 & 1/26/15 - expressed outrage & gave him an 8 1/2 page documentated report of repairs with receipts stating unequivoacably a new fridge was needed. No more repairs. (A Heather in HD warranty in ARK on 1/19/15 stated an "accelerated claim for buyout would be started - something later found not to be true - along with dozens of other false promises) Greg agreed. He promised to "look into it & get back to us. Instead almost within days the repair service co called to schedule more repairs. Once again we were being ignored. In phone calls to HD warranty/Greg/ & repair co they now all had the AUDACITY to state "well we are now dealing with an OLDER fridge." UNBELIEVEABLE. Also HD is saying we should deal with Maytag for replacement & Maytag is saying we need to deal with HD.

COME ON. I'm begging anyone at either or both companies with an ounce of sanity decency & that still values excellent customer service to reach me at 719-428-9890 for a resolution. In this case the customer is right. Very mad but right.

In our newly purchased house, we decided to replace the laminate countertop with Silestone countertop. We selected a design and Home Depot sent the contractor to take measurements in about 15 days. We placed the order on July 27, 2012 and paid in full around $6,200. After about a month of order placement, We received a call from the installer that they want to come for the installation on a week day no later than 3 PM. I told them that on week days no one is at home before 6 PM and requested if they can come after 6 PM on a week day or at any time of their choice on a weekend. They told me that this is not possible. Therefore, I had to take day off from my work to get the countertop installed.

They came to install the countetop and found that they had made mistake in measurements of the two pieces for the sink and breakfast nook. After about a couple of weeks a person came to take the measurements for the those two pieces. After another couple of weeks later I received a call from them that the new pieces of the countertop are ready to be installed and someone should be available at home on a week day before 3 PM. Again I requested them if that can be done after 6 PM or on a weekend. The answer was the same "No". I had to take time off from work again.

Finally they came to install the two new pieces at the time of their choice. This time the new pieces were of correct dimensions but they looked different in color (shade) from the rest of the pieces. Also the breakfast nook piece was not installed horizontal. It was leaning by 1/2" from outer side. When pointed this to the installers they said it is because of problem with the brackets and nothing wrong with the coutertop. The old Laminate coutertop was perfectly horizontal with the old brackets though. When informed the salesperson at Home Depot about these issues, he assured me that they will compensate me and fix the problems. Then started a period of inspections of countertop. The Assistant Branch Manager came to see the countertop herself. She noticed the difference of color between the new and old pieces but she wasn't sure whether this was due to different lighting in different sections. We provided them the picture of the old and new pieces which were clearly showing difference.

After about 5 months, today, Dec 01, 2012, I was informed by the manager that there is nothing Home Depot can do and I have to accept and live with it. So here I am after spending close to $7,000, taking two day off from work and living about 5 months with broken kitchen walls (they broke the dry walls while removing the tiles from back splash). I am wondering do I have any recourse? In this case they (Home Depot) are the party and the judge too. Is any body at the top in Home Depot who cares for customer satisfaction? I have had absolutely no complaints against Home Depot before this transaction and for any renovation project, my first stop has always been Home Depot. However, after going through all this, I feel like I have been ripped off and I will think 100 times before turning towards Home Depot.

I had Bailey's Co coming to install a dishwasher and was told between 3 and 7. Called @ 6:00 and said it would be an hour, called back again @8:00 and said they had 1 more drop off and would be there. I told them I have two small kids that I need to get to bed and this was too late anyway. I told thr driver to put us first on the list for the next morning and to call me back for the confirmation, by 10:00 no call by Bailey's. I called them and explained the situiation to the manager (Sam) and said I wanted the dishwasher installed that day and he said he could not do that and it would be another week. He did not offer an apology or even act like he cared, he was too busy too deal with customer service complaints. Home Depot these are the people that are repesenting you company, you might want to look into this. If this what I can expect in the future Lowes can have my business.

I purchased a Maytag front load washing machine Oct 2010. I also purchased Maytag dryer. The dryer had to be repaired soon after purchase. The washer had to be repaired within 2-3 months after purchase. I paid about 700.00 for washer. The first repair was done by A& E Service. They were horrible. They came in to diagnose it and ordered the parts. They said the parts were being delivered via UPS on a certain date. Took the day out of work no delivery. called them they said the parts were on backorder. How do you come up with a delivery date if the parts are not in stock?? The parts totaled 693.00. This went on for 5 weeks and the customer service was horrible. Finally the parts arrive. It was fixed on April 12,2011. That was covered under manufacturer warranty. So 700.00 worth of parts, my cost of 30.00 week to Laundromat for 5 weeks, plus the original price of the machine. Now the second repair was done Jan 15, 2013 $350.00 for parts. New England appliance was great to work with. I took out extended 2 year warranty. Just placed another call for yet another repair the machine is not pumping water out instead it's draining on my cellar floor. I also purchased Maytag OTR microwave with glider tray on March 12, 2011. On March 11, 2013 it has also failed and is currently not working. I'm starting to believe Home Depot bought Maytag appliances at a good deal before Whirlpool bought them out. These appliances are horrible. I'm so disappointed with the whole situation. I don't think I should have to keep renewing my warranty through Home Depot to cover these bogus appliances. I read many negative posts on complaint boards and didn't want to resort to that so I felt a direct e-mail would be better. I don't see me purchasing anything else from your store and if friends say they are looking for appliances I will just shake my head no.

I placed an order for same day store pick up. When I arrived at the store, half the order was missing and there was no record in Home Depot's system that I ever ordered anything else. I cancelled the order completely. 13 days later, the ghost order showed up. I got an email letting me know it was ready for pick up. I called the store, cancelled it again...it had not been charged to my credit card at this point. The next day I got a call from the local Home Depot that my order was ready for pick up. I again cancelled the order(3rd time). The next day, my account was charged for the amount of the order. I now have encountered a $37 overdraft fee which Home Depot refuses to pay for.

4 weeks ago I ordered mini blinds and installation from the Harrison, Ohio store. They didn't give too much information about the process, they just said it would be about 2 weeks. Well the contractor Arts blinds took 2 weeks to come measure. then I had to go back to the store to get blins well the store was out so the store called me when they got the blinds back in. another week.

The store said they would call Arts blinds and let them know that I had the blinds. well when I called Arts blinds 2 days later no one from home depot called like they said they would. so I had Arts coming out today because they only come to Indiana once a week they say and I had my 18 year old son stay home from school. He was supposed to be there between 9 and 11 a.m. Brandon called and left a message saying to call the store Arts blins .

Well when I did no answer I left a message. No response so I call on my 10 minute break and the lady said he couln't find a place to enter the house that wasn't muddy. If he would have pulled in the drive about 10 feet there was a sidewalk and grass and another door . Well the lady said he can't come for another week and I think he should've come back today or at least this week.

So I'm having someone else install my blinds and I just want you to know what kind of people are representing your name..By the way when I called the store al I got was thats your right no apology for the worst experience I have ever had with any store. Believe me when I get my money back I will never go there again even if I have to drive further.

I buy and spend money quite often and have never had a problem but after a recent home tree job I bought
A copule chains for my saw witch is a larger size and I expressed my concerns but was still told I could bring it back
I did this twice until I bought an entire new bar hoping it would work. But none of it does. I also have been
Told I am blocked out of the system for 90 days. I have laytex driveway sealer that I bought more than I needed and
By the time 90 days comes around there is a good chance it is bad.... This is going to make it so I can not send any of my men to homedeot I am not happy with this policy and have never had this problem before. The amout of this complaint is around $200.
But with the driveway sealer it will be more like $2000. I want to be contacted ASAP. Also use the system lowes has with the phone number system

August 2012 we decided to call Home Depot for window replacement. We had the district manager come by our house to set this all up. He promised us that they would be in on labor day and no later. The date that we had them complete this project was the week before Christmas 2012. There was alot of problems with scheduling and the contractors they would hire always seemed to quit when our job needed done. They ended up putting the windows in October and they measured 4 of the windows incorrectly. We also made two appointments for them to install. The first time they were to come they no showed us on a Sunday and then they lied and said we made the mistake. The other times my husband took off of work and he was no showed. The next time which was in December when I took off my job and they never showed and I had to call them. I called the district manager and he wanted to make another appointment. I asked him where they were and he had no idea what was going on. The district manager was covering for them the whole time and he lied every chance he got so he could look good. I was also promised compensation for the days that we took off of work for the no shows. They lied again to my face. The day that they no showed in December my windows were still in Baltimore and no one had them on a truck here in Hagerstown to come at 11:00 a.m They caused us alot of stress around the holidays to top it off. My house was a mess for four months and no one cared about it at all. I payed good hard earned money to have this done right. I could have went to your competitors and got it done in a day. What is up with that? Yet I chose Home Depot because I had other work done before and it was professionally done and in a timely manner. Yours standards has went down hill and I will never have work done again by your establishment. I am still waiting for that call since December 2012 on my price cut. I guess you need four months for that too.
Let me know what you decide.

Good day,

I am contacting you in hopes of resolving an issue which came about by trusting the advice of one of your associates to provide the right product for the right job.

My wife, myself and a friend of ours were to install clay tile on a pitched roof of our garage. My wife and I went to the local Home Depot in Signal Hill, CA. at Spring Street and Atlantic. We were directed to the area of the store which has roofing supplies. We spoke to an associate in that area and asked if he could reccommend what underlayment type paper to use to install clay tile on a pitched roof. He said that he didn't have knowledge of that, but that he could get the indivdual that is knowledgable in roofing. Just as we finished this conversation, the individual that he was going to contact showed up. We relayed our inquiry to him regarding the proper underlayment to use for installing clay tile on a pitched roof. He walked over to section of rolled paper and informed us that this is what we needed to purchase for the job. He then asked how many square feet of roof, and based on our answer told us that we needed two rolls. We purchased the 2 rolls of GAF TRIPLY #75 BASE SHEET that he suggested. Our friend installed the clay tile roof after laying down the TRIPLY. All appeared to be well.

At this same home, we had a contractor doing some more extensive work at our home. While he was on the jobsite he noted some rot on roof plywood planking over the porch. We had him include that in his bid. He removed the clay tile and the damaged plywood planking. He replaced the plywood planking. We informed him that we had leftover under layment from installing the garage roof. We brought it to him and he took one look at it and said, this is not the right paper to install for this type of roof. He told us that the TRIPLY #75 BASE SHEET is only used for hot mopped flat roofs, and not to be used under clay tile roofs. My wife immediately went over to the Home Depot to speak to the supervisor on duty. Her name is Letty. My wife explained our dilema. Letty went to her computer, went on the web and pulled out the information sheet TRIPLY Design and Application Instructions. She read through the information and informed my wife that this product can very well be used for application of clay tile on a pitched roof. My wife brought the information home and I reviewed it when I returned from work. After reviewing the information sheet for this product it clearly states that it is not for pitched roof application. It is a product used for a flat roof much like my contractor indicated.

The following day my wife went back to Home Depot. Letty was not on duty. She spoke to another supervisor that was on duty, his name is Alex. My wife again explained our situation, adding the newly acquirred information I had read from the information sheet for this product. At that moment the associate that had suggested the TRIPLY arrived at the customer service desk. He immediately spoke up. His memory was clear about our visit and about the job we told him we were going to perform, but he said he did not remember giving us any paper. My wife asked him; you remember our visit, our questions to you about the product to use for this type of roof but you don't remember providing us the paper? Other customers who were standing at the desk and Alex looked at him in disbelief. My wife then asked Alex if someone from Home Depot could come out and evaluate the cost of a corrective repair. He said Home Depot would noy do that. He said all that he could authorize is to return the money for the TRIPLY paper which was purchased. My wife was very dissatisfied with his offer and asked for the corporate contact number. He told her it was on the receipt.

My wife contacted Cindy at 1 800 654-0688 ext.76526. She was given a case number of 51625944. She said she would investigate. The same day Letty, the first supervisor my wife confronted about our situation, called my wife and offered $200 plus the cost of the material we bought for the inconveinence. My wife informed her that the lowest bid we had to replace the paper on the roof was $1,650. My wife asked her to send someone out from Home Depot to replace the paper for that cost. Letty said that would be impossible. My wife then called Cindy at corporate customer service to update her on the conversation she had with Letty. A few days later we received a letter of intent to provide us with a gift card of $250 to compensate us for our troubles. I have attached the letter with this email.

What I am asking for, is more reasonable compensation for the troubles your associate has caused us. If he hadn't been presented to us by the first associate we spoke to as being the technical person to speak to regarding roofing material; I wouldn't have put as much faith as I did in his decision to provide us that paper. Please review the trouble your employee has caused us, and provide a equitable compensation.

Thank you for your time in reviewing this matter

Sincerely,

William

On 11/21/12 I purchased a refrigerator from the Home Depot store in Fishkill, NY. We were told that we could have it delivered by the 26th and that the item was in stock. We opted to have it delivered on December 10th. A few days later I contacted customer service for delivery and asked if it was possible to switch the delivery date to 12/1/12 and was advised yes. They changed the date. We did receive a confirmation phone call the day before and advised they would be at our home between 2-6 on that date. We sold our old refrigerator and had them remove it on the day the new one was to arrive which was 12/1/12. It was getting late so I called delivery and was assured they would be there but probably running late. They never showed. I called again but they were closed. I then called the Home Depot where I purchased the refrigerator. After two days of calls back and forth I found that there was a mix up with the customer service in delivery. I am livid. I had to throw out food as we did not have a refrigerator then had to buy a dorm size refrigerator from Lowes for the rest of my food. Our refrigerator will not be delivered until 12/10/12. I feel we should be not only compensated for my loss of food but also for the inconvenience of having to buy a dorm size refrigerator of which I will have no use for once the new one is delivered. I was going to purchased all my appliances at Home Depot since I just moved into my new home, but because of this I had second thoughts.

i purchased a toro recycler lawnmower in oct.2012- i bought it early so that it would be available when i needed to use it.it started when i assembled it according to instructions. the next time i tried to start it was without success. i returned it to the home deport where it was purchased at 6708 e. mckellips rd in mesa,az. they basically told me tough luck, the store manager did not try to communicate with me,even though i waited for over an hour,and not only that they also would not direct me to a place that covers toro warranties. the mower has a three year warranty but i can't ship it back to iowa,in my opinion home depot should exchange it. but i guess they were right- tough luck- i'll remember this and alert any and all who may ask about the practices of home depot.

On September 2nd I ordered a LG Washing Machine on the condition that it would deliver on September 7. The order was taken by the web and the delivery confirmed on September 6 in the afternoon – as scheduled. Approximately 7:00 PM on September 7, I was notified from the LG Home Depot Support desk that the order would not be delivered as scheduled – no reason was given. I called the LG support desk at 8:10 PM and learned that it was closed for the day.

I then contacted the HOME DEPOT support team. That was a colossal waste of time. During this call, I was told that an appointment was made for September 14. At no time was I contacted about that delivery date – frankly it is unacceptable. The customer service representative and her supervisor were unable to insure the order would deliver as scheduled and the best they could do would be to an email because LG was closed for the day.

I then cancelled the order after telling them in no uncertain terms I would no longer do business with HOME DEPOT. I want to make sure that you all fully understand the ramifications of this in action.

1 – The order was canceled. I will go to LOWES and order a similar device for about the same price. LOWES will deliver next day. So, instead of a making good on your promise to deliver, you have lost sale.

2 – I will not shop at HOME DEPOT again. The last major purchase will be paid off by the end of the month and totaled about $2K. The previous year I re-did my kitchen using the Depot program. That cost approached $20K. Since 1996 (my retirement from the army), I have been a loyal customer – generally spending a conservative average of $2.5K a year on everything from wood to plants. You have lost these sales.

3 – I am a logistics professional. I fully understand inventory, manufacturing and shipping – that is my life. To suggest that the delivery is manager by LG is purely a resource driven decision. I may be made by efficiencies, but there are hundreds of work arounds. None of which were explored ore even offered. Why pick up the phone if you can’t fix something.

4 – I will tell all of my friends and family of this transgression and urge them to not shop at HOME DEPOT

In sum, the inability to even offer any alternative options or delivery for this device and failure to understand the consequences of this failure speaks volumes for HOME DEPTOT’S inefficiency and management style. It is not my concern – nor should it be – that this decision was made by LG – they are your vendor and should not be managing you.

I you would like to chat or if you have a resolution, but given the inept customer service and inefficiencies I’ve experienced in this debacle, my guess is DEPOT will not attempt to salvage my relationship.

I was making a payment on line and thought the transaction was complete but got a notice (on the web-site) that there was a problem. So I called the customer service and told them I wanted to pay the bill but I wanted to be sure it didn't get paid twice.
( I was paying off the total of over $4,700+ !!)
The lady said, "Oh, not to worry, if that happens we'll refund it no problem! So, I gave the info again and the next day I found out the payment had indeed been taken TWICE!!
So, I called customer service again. They said, "Oh yes, we see the balance was paid twice and you have a $4,700+ credit balance and we'll be happy to refund but it will take about THREE WEEKS!!!!!!!
$4,700 is a lot of money to me! I'm bouncing checks, even to the I.R.S.!! I need that money back NOW!!

My husband and I were at the Bossier City, LA(#364) Home Depot on February 21, 2013. After waiting for 40 minutes to be helped we finally got a manager to come over who was anything but courteous. Due to time restraints we had no option but to continue our purchase, however we will not be shopping at this store again. We spent over $800 and were treated very rudely. We spend a lot of money at Home Depot as we are doing a complete remodel of our home.

I've call the home depot on 12 Coliseum Dr. Nashua, NH twice now at different occasions. The first time I waited 20 minutes and gave up. I again called back hoping to speak with a person in the a specific department and waited another 25 minutes. Is there only ONE incoming line? Very disappointed.

The Home Depot lessons or teaching sessions that they have make doing it yourself possible.  I have recently purchased a home and my wife and I found it easy to make the home improvements necessary when owning a new home.  We rebuilt the fence, hung shutters and blinds, repainted the rooms, and change all the light fixtures all under the tutelage of the Home Depot lessons.  It truly is a store where you can save more and do more.

Simply put Home Depot does not stand behind the contractors poor quality work. You are on your own when it comes to finding and hiring a contractor that you can trust. They don't even think they need to reply to the BBB. Just a friendly warning from someone who has learned the hard way about Home Depot.

Hi, I hope I have enough space, because this is a long story. I ordered on line ( dec28,2014) a stove #Model JB250DFWW, for a rental I have, the renters glass top stove had a crack on it, they delivered the 31 of December, Xmas eve, they took the old one, and installed the new one, and after tryng it, there was electrical problem, so they called the Office and told the delivering men to take the new one back to the store and re-install the old one. We had a big argument with the customer support team, so we cancel that stove. got our money back as soon as they could send it, after we complained and complained. Now we went directly to the store #4614 the 4th January to order one in person, (mean while we had to deduct the rent to our renters because we thought it was a danger to cook in the broken glass top stove, so they had to order food ) okay we liked a stove and the sellesman told us that the one next to the one we were looking at , was less expensif and right for a rental, we agreed with him, the stove looked real nice, the add on top of the stove said it was $ 349 , so we deceided to get it, he went and did all the paper work , we paid for it , and told the renter they were going to deliver it the 1/7/15, she was happy. They delivered the stove on that day and installed it. the renter did not know what kind of stove we bought. so after they left, my renter had an emergency call and had to leave for new York, she came back on the 1/16/15 and gave me a call, asking if I knew the stove had only one big burner and 3 small one. I did not think it was right, so I went back to the store next day, and asked a sellperson in that dept. about the order, I showed her the one I ordered and after she checked on the computer, she says, they delivered the wrong one. What happen is that they had the wrong add on top of the stove and the number was wrong, the number was for another one (the one they delivered) we had to call one the manager and he did took care of every thing, so now I have to wait to see if they will deliver the right one model # RB526DHWW- store SO SKU # 1000050834, meanwhile I had to pay for this one, and wont get my money back for the other one till they take it back to the store. This is a real mess and somebody is not doing their job. Since Xmas I am having night mares about stoves... The last person who really knew what was going on , was very smart and knew the problem right away, she printed all the paper work so my rental can see wich stove we bought, her name is Ms. Martha Lambert, she needed the help of her supervisor Mr. Raffael Santana and he was a super first class supervisor he did everything he could to make things right for me. They have to be aknowledge for thei work to help and please a customer. So now I am going to have more night mares till the new stove get delivered the 1/22/15. and then wait till I get my money back. So now Is my question ? why I had to go through all this hard time just to buy a stove from Home Depot.??? Do I have to write to B.B.C. to complain ? are you going to get in touch with me to discuss all this mess ? what is going to happen ? do I have to write to Mr. Craig Menear to let him know whats going on with his Home Depot ? Please let me know...

A new dryer was purchased for my rental property from Morgan Hill CA, Home Depot. The Dryer kept blowing a fuse in the unit, making it not operable. I paid an Electrician $125 to check my electrical. He assured me that there was no problems with my electrical wiring in the house, I called GE Service Department to have the fuse replaced. There were no fuses in stock throughout the whole state of California. I had to pay $88 to have two new fuses rushed in as replacements. Another fuse blew, as soon as the dryer was turned on. At this point I was so mad and discussed,! This dryer was under a warranty, but no one could fix the problem, or willing to replace it. I contacted Home Depot and demanded a different brand of Dryer. A Maytag was delivered to replace the GE. The Maytag Home Depot refused to pick up the GE dryer from my house. It has now been a month since the Maytag was delivered, of course this dryer is working fantastic! No, problem with it at all! Another month has passed and Home Depot is refusing to come and collect the GE Dryer, and they have informed me they will not give me a refund until the GE dryer is returned. What kind of a company is this anyway! Charge me for two dryers, making me pay for additional costs to trouble shoot the problem, purchase fuses, and not make things right! A company of this size should have there act together! I will never buy another appliance from Home Depot again!!! I recommend everyone to shop somewhere else!!!

I traveled approx 35 rt miles to pick up a replacement unit coming from Nogales Az Home depot via a manager from that store, dropped off at the Irvington store in Tucson, Az. The box was open, so I asked them to check the heater top. It was used and they said just take it home and see if it worked. They refused to return my money so I could get a heater. I am diabetic and spent the night in the cold due to your employees non caring attitude. I am finding this is a big issue with home depot. I have been on hold with the dyna glo company to see if they will do what you refused to do. My next step is to go to ripoffreport.com and file and the social sites. I am disabled and this is just wrong. I am giving you a chance to make it right.
My phone number is 520-551-3282.

Your computer system that talks to your card holders tells the customer one thing and when I called the service dept and talked to a service rep I was told something different and he also give me the impression that he didn;t really care if I shop at Home Depot or not. .As of right now I believe that I will pay off my balance of $130.25 and then make my purchases elsewhere.

On Wednesday 3-19-14 we sat down with one of the kitchen specialist to design our kitchen we added installation and counter tops. The total at the time for both with installation and taxes came to 17893 dollars. At that time the sales rep said they would decline such a large purchase and a check would be better. I went back on Friday with a check for the purchase amount he gave us and we all agreed upon. When I sat down with him to pay the bill, he told me it was $19464.00.

When asked why so much he said the underwriter added two pieces of molding. The molding only came to $500. I asked him to go over it again with his underwriter and he told us we are wrong. He said we heard the total wrong and we have to pay this amount. I am very dissatisfied as a customer. I will be reporting home depot to the BBB and will never shop there again! I would please appreciate either and email or phone call back. This purchase was at the Copiague Home depot in New York.

On March 22, at 9:30 am I went to our local Home Depot at Cedartown GA. I was shopping for 15 bundles of roof shingles for my new garage that was being constructed. When I entered the building “Yavonne ” was the cashier. I told her that I would be needing some help loading the shingles. She told me she would get someone. After waiting several minutes and still no help I loaded the cart by myself. ( I am 68 years old). I went to the front checkout where “Yavonne” was still there.

She said she couldn’t find anyone, but she would find someone to help me load my truck. After waiting again for several minutes and still no help I started to load my truck with the shingles by myself. When I was almost done a girl came out and told me that she would help me. The shingles weighed more than she did.. During this whole process I did not see any associates at all. With service like this I think that it is time I start doing my shopping at Lowes.

Ordered door November waited through the holidays and excuses that they had numerous issues with the shipping co that damaged my door. Reordered and waited until March to finally get a partially complete door. Wrong door locks made 5 trips to the store, made over 20 phones calls spoke to manager, promised to make good finally after finally got the door installed after two carpenter visits, Home Depot took the joy out of having this door installed 4 months later, they offered a can of paint labor to finish the trim as their compensation. Every time I look at the door reminds me of the hassle I went through what a horrible feeling to pass on to your customer Home Depot . Not even a letter of apology, not even a follow up by the manager shows how much you don’t care how you treat your customers or want them to come back.

On several occasions, in the last 6 months to a year, my sub-contractor and I have purchased smoke alarms which would not connect with each other. After having the wiring inspected by a licensed electrician, he said the smoke alarms are probably faulty. Needless to say after several trips back and forth to Home Depot, trying alarms, the problem was not resolved. My sub-contractor got smoke detectors from another company, and they work fine and are connecting.

The second problem I have had is we pickup an Elegonated toilet cover with a new toilet, sicks and faucets. Again, my subcontractor had to go back to Home Depot to pickup the right toilet seat, as they gave us a regular toilet cover instead of elegonated one. He just recently had to go back to Home Depot again because of a faulty value in the toilet cover. I just recently picked up a faucet (Delta) and found that the spray hose does not work correctly, and my contactor has to back to Home Depot. Needless to say, this is costly and time consuming for him, and inconvenience to me, as I have to keep taking time off from work for him to come back and forth and fix problems or replace defective items that we bought at Home Depot.

I am very disappointed, needless to say, with the products that I have bought at Home Depot, not to mention to inconvenience for my Sub-Contractor who has to go back and forth and change these products and has to spend more money to get a better product and is costing me more money in the long run.

Twice in the last eight months or so, a home depot customer has phyiscialy assuallted an assistant store manager at home depot, not once but twice. The first time it happened (with witnesses) the comment was made “If it happens again, we’ll talk with customer about it”. Well it happened again with the same customer and the same assistant store manager. I expect this to be retified within the next 24 hours or I will obtain legal consul . At no time will someone lay hands on a member of my household and be held accountable and if Home Depot does not step up to this, I will step up to Home Depot and the lack of concern it has for its employees and their safety. My telephone on this matter is 205-753-1695 and I will inform you of the store location

I would like to file a complaint about port huron home depot. I went to home depot and purchased a lg pantry cabinet on 4/21/ 2013. When we got home and opened the box. The doors were ripped off the cabinet. The whole cabinet had cracks on the side and gouges in it.I drove 130 miles round trip to buy this product. I had to make another 130 miles round trip to take it back and they did not have another one. I think i should be reimbursed for my gas mileage. I asked about it and was told they dont do that. Im one very unhappy customer. And i will tell people to stay away from home depot.

Last week, at the Fort Walton Beach, FL store there was great rep named Manela. She helped me order my products over the phone so I can get the military discount and shipped to my house for free. Today at the same store, there is a rep named Cecelia. She just sat in her chair looked it up on the internet and asked if that is it. I said yes. She said go on the internet at home and order it. She doesn’t call in orders. I said this is what the other lady did for me. She said she never did that for the past 4 years. If Home Depot is wondering why they lose money, this is why. POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE.

I bought a shed on 3/11/13 from Home Depot Columbia, S.C. Harbison store. I found out after they received complete payment by me and my USAA credit line account that they outsource to a HIp out of maine, and the installation company is almost 100 miles from me in Aiken, S.C. Home Depot was paid in full and said they were not responsible for the shed? What kind of crazy crap is that? On my statement with USAA Savings Bank credit line they were paid one thousand sixty eight dollars for the shed and it is not in my yard yet! Then I found out they changed the installation date from 4/8 to 4/15 today and they are still not here and I am going on a second payment on the shed that is not in my yard yet. The installer said they are almost 100 miles away in Aiken , S.C. They are supposed to come today but are still not here.
If they are not here by this afternoon I want all of my money back on my credit cards, and the 159.00 tie down fee on my USAA American Express card also, which have all been paid out to Home Depot Harbison, Columbia, S.C. and HIP installers. I would never recommend Home Depot to anyone as it has become a nightmare, see my facebook page also. Bettie Taylor

I have recently purchased a house and planned on getting most of the remodeling done by Home Depot. The first thing started was a $4k purchase for carpet that went smoothly from the Everett, WA Home Depot. Then we found the Snohomish, WA Home Depit close to our house and were going to do the entire house in window blinds $2k worth… This has been the absolute sorriest experience I have ever had. Owen the sales person was great and informative. This past Wed. I received a voice message saying my blinds came in. At 4 pm I called back and spoke with a a person and they asked for my phone number and would call me back in a min… That phone call never came back. Thursday I tried calling back once again to be transferred to several different department before speaking with a lady that said the installers will contact me in 48 hrs. Friday at approx. 3pm would be 48 hrs… Still no phone call… Sat I decided to call back to the Home Depot only to be told that my blinds were still ready for pick up when they should be installed… This time I asked to speak to a manager that couldn’t tell me much except for that they would call the installers and see what they could do with a promise to call me back… This is from the Service Desk at Snohomish, WA Home Depot at 10:45 am… This way you can locate which manager it is bc I didn’t catch his name. This promise doesn’t mean too much bc I had already been promised a call back and never received it. Unless this goes any better next time ill drive further and work with Lowes. I feel like I’m dealing with a bunch of children at the Snohomish location. Customer Service must be on the low end of the priority list and i will be glad to share my experience with anyone looking to have work done if this doesn’t change. Please feel free to call me or have someone from the store call me and apologize to show that someone believes that an honest apology for poor customer service from the people responsible not a corporate place still exists.

Just returned from the home depot neshaminy where I purchased (3) pressure treated boards. I’m a retired Marine and asked for the military discount. The checkout girl told me to go to self checkout and pay there then come back to the other end of the store where my items were. I get to self checkout and there is no one there to help me, after 5 minutes someone shoued up and pretty much made me feel as if I was annoying them. The only place you had a real person was the original checkout person who couldn”t help me. I have been a loyal customer at that location since the store opened and have spent at least 50 thousand dollars at the neshaminy store. Someone should look into how that store is being operated, I know they lost me as a customer.

On April 9, 2013, I visited the above mentioned Home Depot at 7:40 pm with the intention to purchase shrubs and mulch. I have a gift card with a balance of $120.00. As I approached the register in the outside Garden center, the tatttoed cashier violently flung the booth window open. She said, “We’re closing this register right now” (with a lot of attitude). Then she rolled her eyes and said, “I’ll ring you out”- again with attitude. I told her to forget about my purchase and that I wanted to speak to a manager. She then said,
“I didn’t do nothing wrong and I’m in charge out here”. She proceeded to page a manager. A young lady came and apologized for her behavior. Noone is going to want to make any purchases with such a rude cashier handling customers in the Garden center. If you were to view the security camera, you would be able to verify the unacceptable behavior of this rude employee. I was so disgusted that I no longer wish to shop at Home Depot. By the way, this incident occurred at 7:45 pm which was 15 minutes prior to your Garden Center closing.
If you want to improve your sales, you need to lose this horrible Garden Associate with the awful attitude towards customers.
If you’d like any further information, please call me at 440-884-1851.
Sincerely,
Gary J. Brezina

I just wanted you to know why I am not shopping at Home Depot stores anymore. The reason is thus: The ‘beeping video monitors’. One day last week, I was in need of a copper fitting for a job. I needed to ‘think’ and find the correct part. Every time I moved, I heard this annoying and distracting beeping sound. Then I noticed that every 20 feet or so, there was a video monitor displaying ‘me’.

And when I moved, it beeped. Then I began to notice these devices were installed through out the store in places, no doubt, where shop lifting might be relatively easy. So, I brought this to the attention of a female employee who told me that the beeping was to alert the employees to my presence so they could assist me. Not only do you think we are all thieves, you think we are all stupid!

I am not a thief. Nor am I stupid. Now, when I visit Home Depot, I feel like the Corporation ‘thinks’ that I am a thief. Who ever is responsible for this idiotic installation of such devices should be given a pink slip. I spend alot of money at HD and Lowes. …and I don’t get the ‘evil eye’ when I go to Lowes…so…why would I subject myself to that level of ‘scrutiny’ at Home Depot? I will not!

I am astounded at the incompetence exhibited by two of your Home Depot employees at the Bonney lake, Washington store. They should be somewhat knowledgeable about the products they are selling/recommending…especially in the Home Depot paint dept. Last August, I asked your employee what I should use to paint my outside deck. What she recommended (and what I bought based on her recommendation) turned out to be some kind of porch paint, not to be used for uncovered surfaces.

It looked nice, but didn’t last more than a few months (about 90 days) and now it looks worse than when I started. So……not only am I out the $100 or so it cost me to do the job, I now have to invest more money and all of the labor to do the job right. I understand that people make mistakes, but if I did that in my business, I’d be out of business.

So today, I went back to the Home Depot store and mentioned the issue to the person who waited on me. She said ” Yeah, I know who told you that…..she’s been here for 7 years, you think she would learn…especially when she’s been told repeatedly”. Then today’s clerk recommended the Restore product which looks very good. Based on my square footage, she told me that I would need 6 to 7 5gallon pails to cover the deck.

At a cost of approx. $550 to $650 to do the job. After my first Home Depot experience, I decided to investigate myself….and after reading the back of the product, I found that I only need 3-1/2 5 gallon pails to do the job (which was then confirmed by your chief competitor. If I had listened to your so called expert, I would have invested approx. $350 more than I should have. When combined with the previously spent $100 plus all the wasted labor…..well you get the picture.

I have been a loyal Home Depot customer and have become increasingly disenchanted with the competency of your employees and also the quality of your products. I am sure that there are many others like me. Bottom line……your competitor is going to get the Restore sale and all the related sales that go with it.

I went to Mattoon illinois Home Depot to purchase 1700 sq ft of hardwood flooring, I ask to speak with the manager on this purchase, the lady setting at the desk in the floor dept was busy eating but did advice me the manager was to busy doing paperwork to come and help me, I walk away and go to the contractor area , they call manager for me.

I speak with the manager I ask if they have any discounts on this purchase, like the credit card deals you sometimes run, he informed me there were none. Mind you I have check in hand and ready to buy ($6000.00 worth) I walked out the door with my check, I now get upon the computer and find that you will give a 10 percent discount for disable vets up to $500.00, also read that large purchases Home Depot would call home office for discount.

I called lumber liquidators they did work with me and that where I am going to purchase my flooring. Had the manager at home depot worked with me you would of had the sale. I like Home Depot and would hate to lose this store , losing sales like this isn’t good for business I would of like to of spent my money here in Mattoon instead of Champaign in the end I ended up with getting a 25 year warranty and saved myself $350.00 dollars and free delivery and this is after I figured sales tax, what a shame.

Lazy Employees!!! email i sent to homedepot complaint center: I was just at the home depot on 800 North Brookhurst Street in Anaheim, CA 92801. I never write to complain but my latest experience at this store was just ridiculous and I am compelled to say something about it, in hopes that it gets to the right people and something can be done so that it doesn’t happen to someone else.

I went to the store looking for a carpet rake that I saw on the HD website. I couldn’t find it in the broom and mop area so I asked an employee named James. He said he has never seen it in the store before. He called the carpet department for me and we walked over to the department. James and I were met with another employee…

I did not see his name, but he had tattoos (sleeves) to both arms. The employee told me they didn’t carry it in the store. He asked me if I was sure it wasn’t an “online only” item. I told him I was certain it was available in the store. He said he and another employee had both tried to look for it already with no luck. Both of them said no its not here. I think it is impossible to believe that 2 people walked around the entire carpet department to look for this item in the time it took for James and I to get there.

I don’t believe they even bothered to look… but reluctantly I went on my way a little upset because I felt like I had wasted my time driving here if the info on the website was incorrect. Before I left I went back to the mop and broom area just to make sure I hadn’t missed it when another employee named John approached me and asked if I needed help. I told him I was just looking for carpet rake but a couple employees already told me it is not available.

I kept walking pass him and didn’t really pay attention to him. I walked to the broom and mop aisle and again, no luck. I was about to walk out of the store when I see John walking up to me with a carpet rake!!! He had found the item I was looking for at the carpet department! The carpet rake that 2 other employees that actually worked in the “carpet department” just told me they didn’t have.

This guy John (I don’t know his last name but he is an older Caucasian male with grey hair and wears glasses)… needs to be commended because he went out of his way to find an item that I was already told wasn’t available. I didn’t even ask him to do it. On the other hand the 2 other employees need to be fired because they were just too lazy to help me actually look for an item. Either that or they just don’t know the inventory in the store they work at. Both offenses I feel warrant termination, but then again i’m not the boss.

All i can say is if it wasn’t for John, I would’ve walked out of that store and headed to Lowes to buy my product. And home depot would have lost my business. Granted it was only a $12 purchase I hope home depot still cares about its customers. And I hope to hear back from someone regarding this matter.

Be very careful in getting the details of what is included when you purchase doors at Home Depot. Nevermind that they screwed up the installation date and insisted I had scheduled the installation of my storm doors on my son’s birthday and then could not reschedule it for the date that it was actually set up for in the first place. The installation was supposed to include removal of the old doors however it would appear they use a different dictionary than the rest of us. When I talked to their contractor about his removing the doors to the dump he stated that was not included.

Rather than argue with him I called HOME DEPOT and told them what was going on and that removal was included. They backed the contractor and told me that removal only means removing the old doors from the frame and I would have to take care of the debris removal. The fact that in order to install the doors automatically necessitated that the old doors be taken out to make room for the the new ones apparently should have made it clear to me that that was the removal they meant when they sold me the doors. I was told I should have asked what removal meant which amazes me.

If they were replacing old doors and told me removal was included one would assume that means removal of the debris as they certainly could not have meant that unless removal was included the homeowner would have to remove the old doors before their contractor installed the new ones. BUYER BEWARE as the other contractor I talked with first had indicated that he was removing the doors during cleanup as part of the deal but Home Depot uses the word but gives it a completely different definition

I ordered 1,000 square feet of tile from the Home Depot in DICKSON CITY, PA. and received great assistance, at least I thought so at the time. The salesman told us he had all the tiles we needed for the job but failed to let us know it was made up from 3 different dye lots. I had a professional do the install and I wasn’t home when it was installed. To my surprise I found out the hard way that the tiles in the order was not the same. Not only was the color off, the tile s varied in size by 1/16 of an inch. That might not sound like much but in a large room it’s very noticable. When I called to complain the manager listened to me for 2 minutes before speaking with the installer.

No call backs and 8 hrs later I learned that they didn’t want to hear my complaint and blamed it on the installer. While I agree the installer is partially to blame, the so called PRO salesman that HD advertises never once mentioned dye lots or variations in color or size. HD managers spoke to the sales person and never listened to me. I should have known better when the salesman said to me “This is your lucky day. I may be a Fat, Dumb and Irish but we have all the tile for your job”. Before I received the delivery I thought about sending a letter to HD thanking them for the service. Now an old saying comes to mind, If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is.

I have spent over 50,000 bucks at HD over the years and they don’t even want to hear my complaint. Can you help in getting this complaint some attention. I have the boxes showing different dye lots. an experience like this is what drives people to Lowes. What ever happened to the old Loyal customer…

I would like to express in the strongest possible terms my disappointment and outrage at the low level of service I received at your Home Depot store in El Escorial shopping center in Carolina, Puerto Rico (Store no. 6402). The management of this store not only has chosen dismal-quality subcontractors to do vital service operations, but also has shown to me a shocking insensitivity to the needs of handicapped persons. On Friday, June 10th, I went to the above mentioned Home Depot store to buy a portable generator for my aged parents, who reside in the Island.

After finding the right model (thanks to the help of a friendly and attentive employee), I made my way to the customer assistance counter where, again, I received friendly and competent service regarding the generator’s installation service. The problem started when I went to the contractor’s services counter, to arrange for the delivery of the item. First thing I noticed was that the lone (working) Home Depot employee behind the counter was a young woman on a wheelchair. I was shocked to see her having to prop herself up from her wheelchair in order to reach the register, the computer and the printer, since none of the stations there were adjusted to facilitate her use.

Despite her kind assistance, I could see that she was obviously greatly inconvenienced and pained by this situation. I thought it was ironic that a chain that boasts such a passion for remodeling cannot do the proper physical adjustments to accommodate their less body-able employees. I asked her if she was aware that by disregarding her needs, Home Depot was actually violating the disabled persons act and could be cited for being out of compliance. She nervously looked over her shoulder and did not answer, but her expression was all the information I needed.

I think that it is unacceptable that in this day and age someone has to fear losing her job for just demanding basic human needs already guaranteed by law. I would like to see that your chain corrects this situation with all due speed without it resulting on this young woman’s losing her job or suffering any retaliation by management.

My second shock came when I asked this Home Depot employee about the delivery itself. She explained to me that the store contracts these services through a private contractor, and that they do only deliver merchandise to the sidewalk. This is understandable for a pallet of cinder blocks, but not for a portable generator that could be easily carried on a dolly or a similar manual equipment. I explained that dragging a generator from the street would be not a possibility for a couple of disabled elders or their caretaker, as I do not reside in the Island, and all my able-bodied relatives work. She apologized but did not know what could be done.

I asked the young woman to call the company on my behalf and see what were the options, if any. It took a lot of back and forth over the phones and hour and a half before getting an answer from the company. They said that since they would have an additional person in the truck, it would cost me a double rate, or $158.00, to have it delivered to my parent’s doorstep, and into a storage room in the house. I asked to talk to her Home Depot manager and he vaguely repeated what the young woman had told me, and that nothing could be done. “They only use a mechanical finger when they deliver”, he offered as some sort of explanation, “so that’s why”.

I retorted how in the world could old, disabled people then receive delivered goods from his store. He simply shrugged his shoulders and offered no answer. I demanded to talk to the delivery company itself but I was told that they were an internal service and I could not do that. At this points I was upset, I asked the employee to keep my item in the store until I could find someone to pick it up and she was kind enough to accommodate me.

Let me be clear that I understand where this is coming from. I am Puerto Rican. I understand my culture. We have been a colony for all of our history. As such, people are usually not likely to complain or stir trouble. As a result, shoddy practices like the ones described above occur daily, even in open defiance of established law. I would like Home Depot to understand that I just invested almost $800 of my family’s hard-earned money in their company and yet not only received shoddy service which caused great inconvenience to me and my relatives, but I also had to witness an episode of unacceptable on the job discrimination. Plus, I was expected to spend an additional $158 for this!

I demand to receive from Home Depot the satisfaction and the assurance that the level of service and employee protections in that store will sharply increase as soon as possible, even if this implies changing subcontractors for others who meet acceptable standards of service. I have been a loyal customer of your chain both in the US and in the Island and I sure will take my business (and that of everyone I know) elsewhere should I not receive it nor hear from you.

We puchased a Maytag Dishwasher Serial 41962555N Model MD8H964AWB in July of 2008 from Home Depot. In Oct of 2009 the Control Panel shorted out and had to be replaced. Since we had purchased the extened warranty it was covered BUT we paid $129 labor. NOW in May 2011, the control panel is shot AGAIN! Now we have to replace this piece of crap vs paying extra dollars to repair. We purchased based on the Maytag name. I will NEVER purchase one of Home Depot’s products again and will tell everyone I know not to do so.

I just visited this home depot location at Cerritos California. They had some sliding closet doors on sale. The one that I wanted was just on top of the display unit, so I requested for help to bring it down. A guy sitting just 10 feet away was talking on the phone. After his phone call was terminated, I requested for assistance and he said he’ll go and get it. After about another 10 minutes wait with no help I walked around for someone else till I found help bringing the unit labeled J046. I took it to the cashier to pay for it but the cashier couldn’t get the price from the sticker.

Another wait for someone to provide a price check. After a while, the cashier said I couldn’t buy because it was probably a recall item. I said that recalled items are not placed on the shelf with discount price. I was thinking that someone else was going to buy it and they just were giving up excuses. Roxane the store manager was nowhere to be found.

The Home Depot uses unethical sales practices. Throughout the ‘black friday’ sales event, there were no appliance packages available. Nor on Monday. Tuesday, every item was available at the higher prices. I was a dedicated Home Depot shopper until now.

Home Depot at Home Services installed a roof on my house 6 years ago. I bought the top-of-the-line Timberline Ultra lifetime shingles. They made a mistake and installed a thinner lower quality shingle (the Timerline 30 year shingle). My insurance company recently caught the error after the roof was totaled in a hail storm. After a month of calling I have been unable to get Home Depot to come and look at the roof and the GAF (shingle manufacturer) inspector will not come look at it either. GAF issues the warranty for Timberline shingles installed by Home Depot, guaranteeing proper installation and protection against material defects, etc. So far, GAF has said that putting the wrong shingles on my house does not qualify as “misapplication”.
