Complaint Review: The Home Depot
The Home Depot3020 US Hwy 301 S. Riverview, Florida U.S.A.
The Home Depot Customer Contact Center 750 Employees layed-off before the holidays Riverview Florida
Many of our employees had ten to twenty-five years with the company and our center has existed for six years. Everyone from managers to associates were given the same treatment; all that is required by law: a WARN notice.
In March Home Depot closed it's contact center in Addison, Texas after only nine months of operation. These employees were given ninety days notice; thirty days of work and sixty days of pay after closing the building. They had job fairs and help during their last thirty days at work.
It is nearly impossible for a person to find work during the holiday season and it's even more difficult to look for work while still employed. A job fair is scheduled in January, right before our doors shut.
My main concern is not just for the employees, but the customers in the states we support. The stores are not trained to build orders and deal with the additional work required. Also the company has put a freeze on hiring in the stores. The Home Depot is within the law; but morally lacking.
