I avoid going to this store because the service is so horrible. I went there today because the item I wanted to order wasn't available to order online, only in-store pickup. I had to ask three very disinterested employees before I could find it. There was only 1 when the store inventory said 23. It took forever to get someone to look for more, I had to ask 5 different people, but nothing was found. I had to go buy it somewhere else.

Though customer service varies greatly from one individual to the next on any given day, this store generally rates high. Today I had one of the worst experiences and one of the best. As a female DIYer I’m deeply offended by male employees who talk down to me, are curt, & seem bothered when I ask for advice or assistance- the point of HD. I’ll not linger on that negative. The best part of my visit today was Arman in lumber who was diligently manning the cut area. He was friendly, respectful, & helpful. He didn’t hesitate to go the extra mile. He seemed to be swamped helping customers, but took his time with me, explaining & price checking items before cutting everything. I watched him field questions while continuing to help others. His demeanor was calm & positive. I appreciated the service he provided. It’s tough working with customers especially when you’re being overworked. I hope HD appreciates Arman and the other employees there who make it a positive experience to shop in San Marcos.

TRISH was one of the best customer service people I have met. She knew her products and more important, she has great customer service skills. She could be a great asset as a customer service trainer so that all HD people had her skill set.

A lot of employees in this store are very helpful. They go above in beyond in helping customers with the assistance they need: LUMBER, GARDEN, CASHIERS! SHOUT OUT TO DARIN in Lumber, SCOTT from Garden, and UTAH from Cashier's! Store needs to do more sanitizing and physical distancing. Please! I rate EXCELLENT for service and only Fair for safety of employees and customers.

Jason in the San Marcos store gave great customer service. I was looking for a 25 ft hose.Two people brushed me off with "If it's not on the shelf, we don't have it. Jason was near and they passed me off. I have been teaching Customer Service for many years, and Jason is a great example. He was cheerful, professional, and efficient. He took the time to search for the item, and researched when it would be in stock. That's the kind of service that brings me back to you store.

all big box improvement stores are the same. lots of stuff at ok prices, not the best prices, but they are always missing something you have on your list that should be in stock. this makes any project a pain. You have to go to multiple locations to get a full list of materials. waste of time.

I've always been able to find what I needed and if they didn't have it on hand they would search it down and find it for me. If another store had the product I needed, they would have it held for me or they would have it delivered to the San Marcos store. Great place to shop by far. I've always been treated with fairness and respect.

The San Marcos store is our home store. Today it's raining but I stopped anyway for a couple of items. Julie, a Home Depot employee, was waiting just inside as I ran for the front door. She took me straight to the items I needed, was business-like, professional and friendly. Then she took me to the new checkout area and rang me up. Because it was pouring outside she grabbed an umbrella and walked me to my car. This is outstanding customer service.
