Allie in Ypsilanti, Michigan said: Sure, we will try that. Can you explain why we recieved the COBRA letter but no information on the part time insurance? We will see if that is even available to us now. He is quitting as soon as he finds another job.
If they had told us the truth in the first place he could have got another job by now. Instead they string them along. Due to their lies and deceit neither I nor none of my family will ever shop at Home Depot again.
They are trying to make all of the people who get paid more quit so they don't have to pay unemployment. Cutting their hours down to an unlivable wage is the best way to make them do that.
Then they can keep the unknowledgable college part time employees that they hired when they reduced everyones hours. Why hire more people when you are cutting the hours of everyone else on staff?
Home Depot has lost all credibilty in our eyes. If you can't tell the truth to your own employees then why should the customers trust them?
I have no idea why the COBRA letter was sent when your husband is
still a HD employee. As long as he is employed, they can't refuse to give him the part time associate insurance. If he has a problem with the Benefits Choice folks, have him contact his
District Human Resources Manager and demand that she/he step in and take care of things. Tell him not to let anyone brush him
off - we both know how things work at HD.
I'm lucky, I left HD and now have a job which I really enjoy. And,
I don't shop there anymore either. I'll spend my money at my
local hardware store, where the management isn't over paid and
cold hearted. The part time associates at the store where I
worked are getting just a few hours a week because sales are
awful and not generating enough hours. Sad situation.
Let me know what happens.
