I used to be a great lot associate on May-June because we had 2-5 lots working at the same time. Lots at my Home Depot had to do ladder checklist, and store checklist. Once the hours get cut, I was by myself. I had to do store checklist, ladder checklist, and sweep all of the entrance. Right before I finish the ladder checklist, the lumber carts were empty, and there were lots of carryouts. Because of this, I couldn't sweep the entrances and was given a hard time. I left at the end of Dec of 2018... The managers kept saying "you were a great lot, but now you're just good". the worst part is that other managers trained their associates that I should pick up their slacks like patdown and I was pressed to do it while I was struggling to get my stuff done.

Favoritism.
Mean managers
Specialist employees would disappear as soon as freight team is in the floor.
Full time is bad hours.
Management literally doesnt help unload trucks and waited untill its 90 percent finished to help. (In the store i was at)
If they want you gone they will find an excuse to get rid of you.
No appreciation for years of work.

What they preach they don't practice. Lots of nepotism leads to favoritism, bad treatment, no upward mobility and DO NOT COMPLAIN OR CALL AWARELINE. It is not confidential as touted. You will get fired..they don't want to hear input. Investigations needed. Training not provided to everyone- only favorites. Almost cultish attitude.

Seems stores are only as good as management. Starts at top & rolls downhill. We are only warm bodies in Atlanta area! If manager, regional & district persons are knowledgeable, know labor laws and critical thinking skills, the store is fun. My store morale & work ethic ruined by new District/Regional bosses & new scheduling matrix.Store management no backbone for workers interest. Treat workers bad, demoralize them, Companies wonder why labor unions are popular again.

It seems store management, head cashiers, regional persons do not care about cashiers at all. Dangerous when customers become angry because new labor module creates less coverage. If you walk through alleged open door policy, you are fired for disrespect!
