We're promoting social distancing in our stores and distribution centers, which includes stores limiting the number of customers inside at any given time.

My feeling are mixed. I come to Home Depot because it’s convenient, prices are fair, product selection is good and the customer service I always receive from individuals like Susan, Linda, Kim, Bobby, Havi, Beatrice, just to name a few These individuals are what I call quality employees. There’re not just here for a check. They enjoy what they do and take pride in it. Now, I do have issues with the way the store is operating especially on Sunday. Most days I have to walk around to find help and I never do. I often go to Susan and if no one is available she will help me. It’s very frustrating because it seems like everyone except the cashiers are on break at the same time. Then comes the issues of product knowledge. There should be more training

I was not able to scan an item. Next to me there was a Home Depot staff female named on tag was Jesse speaking to a coworker about how she wanted to smack on the face another coworker (can’t post the inappropriate language she used because it’s not allowing me to post it ) and I asked if she could assist me, she took over the scanner and was unable to scan the item nor even find the item in the system per she was still too busy Explaining to a coworker the kind of hate she felt towards someone else that works there. So she proceeded to call someone else to take care of me (a gentleman that was playing around with a stick behind us) he walked over to take over with an attitude and she stepped to the side to continue on with her conversation. The gentleman that she called over was rude , It took him 10 minutes to find the item in the system, i was asking him if he could please watch my items per he was dropping them, yet he payed me no mind and he stepped on them, overall it was an awful experience

Always find store personnel friendly and helpful at this particular location. Also, like the straight forward layout and organization of the merchandise. Compared to Lowes (sorry guys!) where I feel like I'm at a department store that is trying to distract me and slow me down from my specific project at hand.
