Thread regarding Home Depot Inc. layoffs

You think it can't get worse? Think again.

Spoke to my District manager who is retiring soon so is a little more forthcoming. By end of this year nearly half of our staff will be eliminated. Those that remain will be expected to move between departments, no more assigned departments. Some sort of employee tracking and productivity system is being installed to monitor employees and make sure they are always working. All breaks will be assigned by management. DM said corporate believes they can always find someone who needs a job and will be happy to take whatever they are given. Told me he's glad he is getting out now.

I just stopped showing up for work yesterday. Found a job at McDonalds paying $3 more an hour. The pay at Homedepot is piss poor and they expect you to work yourself to death for it.

The company is moving to an online only sales presence which is scheduled to be completed by 2022. They believe that they can have same day delivery on products with the distribution centers(they have and more coming) and the distribution network they are currently in the planning stages with. The loss in sales is expected to be small and with the massive reduction in payroll, lease expenses, utilities ETC. that comes from operating a brick and mortar business the Senior Executives have a stock price target of $450 a share by 2024.

Most of the people who work here don't even know anything about the products they sell in their department. If they try to get me to work in another department I'm going to play dumb and make the customers go find a manager to help them. I don't know anything, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Yeah half the time at Home depot its hard to find a worker. and some of them seem like you are bothering them with a question about where a product is. MAybe this will improve customer service.

I don't get paid enough as it is. I'll find a new job by the end of the week and just stop showing up.
