How to sign up for home depot kids workshops? I vie seen that home depot has these kids workshops. I want to know if we need to sign up or register to attend or can Jud walk in. Have a yr old who loves to build.
Answer: I would visit the Home Depot website and/or call your local Home Depot and ask. Ours requires you to sign up ahead of time. Also, I am not sure if it is intended for children as young as 3 so you might want to inquire about that as well. For your information, Lowe's has similar workshops. Arts and crafts stores such as A.C. Moore and Michael's do as well.

Has Anyone Purchased A Central Conditioning Unit From Home Depot?From Maintenance & Repairs Forum:
Has anyone purchased a central conditioning unit from Home Depot? Our local Home Depot sells and installs Tirane and Rheum central air conditioning units. Like to know your experience if Home Depot installed one for you. I assume that Home Depot contracts the installation to a certified installers. The pricing seems like a great deal. Are there any "gotcha's" or added expenses. Thanks for your help!
Answer: I had an estimate from Home Depot on a Tirane system. They gave me a price of $8500. I thought this was high so I looked around to other Tirane dealers and got the same unit for $5300. Their salesman told me that places like Home Depot just contract it out to a local company and tack a hefty profit on for themselves. I check out who was doing the installs for Home Depot and he was right. It was a local company contracted to Home Depot. Herb.

How Does Home Depot Measure Customer Satisfaction?From Corporations Forum:
How does Home Depot measure customer satisfaction? Does Home Depot have or rely on some type of metric to measure customer satisfaction? Do they have surveys or things for customers to participate in to measure how customers feel about the store and the service they received? Will vote for the best answer.
Answer: I was employed at a Home Depot most of 2005 during a "career change". I worked in many areas because it also, was and still is, the Home Depot I routinely shop, therefore, I knew about most items and locations. I could also, as a "home handy man", explain some items, i.e., home repairs, in some cases, best product for needs, etc. I never saw a survey, a cash register receipt with number to call, nothing for "customer satisfaction" info. Home Depot, Lowe's continue with increased profits, every year. I would say this is THEIR customer satisfaction indicator. In today's world we live in a society of "negative" people. Why? Too many of us form opinions, not on FACT or PROOF, but what we want to believe. We "dwell" on the "problems" of others, only "seeing" and "hearing" the "bad", NOT willing to understand. "Losers" in life that come home and watch TV, only see "negative" news, maintaining their individual "boring" life. MOST Americans will, as soon as possible, call to report a "complaint" on an employee if there was a problem. HOW ABOUT those that go beyond expectations, do their job as expected, help in any way possible, DO WE on average get their name and make a "positive" call, NO!!!! ONLY when same employee makes a "mistake" in any way. I did ask once about "complaints" our store received, by the way, I had none. We were a very busy store daily until late hours and averaged 15 daily complaints, only few in a week complimenting. Home Depots, I'm sure with Lowe's as well, are extremely dedicated to insuring proper "training" and "orientation" is conducted before anyone starts work. This is a 4 day event and is very "detailed". Before I was a Home Depot employee I often wondered why employees were or seemed unfriendly. Informative if I needed help on an install but very brief, to a point of being NO help at all. Almost "robotic" in nature at times was my personal description of employees, NO personality with any, saying a simple hello to "cashiers" you would think you "bit" off their arm, BUT now I know these answers. Here is what employees are "trained" to do at Home Depot. Never offer too much "detailed" information on any product, if so, and the customer has a problem or gets injured, LAW SUIT. Being overly friendly, i.e., "You look great today" (seen by some as a "suggestive", "pickup" move), etc. LAW SUIT. Allowing a customer to assist "holding" wood or a "rug" while cutting, LAW SUIT. Any "presumed" cuss word, as a "simple", DAMN a customer may hear, LAW SUIT. Every imagine able way anyone can "think of" to "sue" has been done and will continue. Remember, Home Depot, as I now know, is extremely "wealthy" and "profitable". "Look" at "all walks of life" doing business, and as you "cruise" the store, concentrate on what YOU see for possible "injury" or just a "bruise". Many LAW SUITS presented daily to Home Depot stores, are often in the 'customers" favor, regardless if an employee is "guilty" or not. Last thing Home Depot wants is "negative" publicity, it WILL NOT hurt business, but put into "individuals" (low life's) heads ways to also "profit" in the store, if on the "news". Typically, cash settlements are "offered" and "accepted", lying customer got what they wanted, although, much less than originally "suing for", but know, in court they will lose. Important to understand, "legimate" claims must be "dealt" with under the "laws" swiftly, agreeable by both parties, mainly the customer "injured" or "insulted". Legate claims are those requiring services of a doctor, emergency, possibly a "cut". "Word of Mouth" claims (cussiing, insults) usually require a "witness", especially if employee is a "good" employee. Hope this helps. If you speak to or request help from a Home Depot employee it usually is not the nature or character of that employee if seemingly "brief", not smiling, etc. it is the Home Depot way.
How To Get A Job At Home Depot?From Other - Careers & Employment Forum:
How to get a job at home depot? I went to the home depot web site and applied a month ago for another job no response. And 2 weeks ago I applied for the Merchandising Execution Associate, I have more than 3 years of Merchandising experience. My question is for anyone who works for home depot or use to, how can I get this job?
Answer: I am the best person to ask about this because I am a direct recruiter for The Home Depot. Home Depot is what they call a "Government Contractor" because they do lots of contracts with HUD, and government backed housing agencies. You're probably saying so what...well this means that Home Depot is very strict with their job requirements. You MUST, I repeat you MUST have exactly what the job description says before they will contact you. If you do not have every skill set on the job description that you saw, you will NOT get a phone call from them. I know it sucks but that is how they operate due to their strict government regulations. Now if you do have every single skill they are looking for, and still haven't got a call, their recruiting process is very, very slow so just be patient and if they are still recruiting for it, they will call you.
When Remodeling An Entire House Is Home Depot The Best/Cheapest?From Decorating & Remodeling Forum:
When remodeling an entire house is home depot the best/cheapest? We need to buy new everything and I can't decide weather it is Worth my time to run around to all of the different stores to price match or if generally home depot is cheaper or equal? We need all new flooring, doors, windows, paint, cabinets, vanity for the bathrooms mirrors, etc...i mean we need everything. so should I go to Sherwin Williams, and a window supply store and flooring store... any experience would be appreciated. thanks in advance
Answer: We have done lots of home remodeling and generally prefer Low es over Home Depot. I am not saying it is better, but they do have a larger selection of things, like vanities, lighting, fixtures or other things that HUD simply did not carry. We also found the "help" to be very knowledgeable, but that will depend on each store itself. But for some things, it might be worth checking out a few other places, like outlet places for tile. We found that both Low es and HUD has lots of broken tiles in their boxes. If you need big ticket items like windows, it wouln't be a bad idea to call around for pricing, if you plan to have those delivered and installed by the seller. But if you are doing all of the work yourself (like us), it is handy to shop at one store. For a big project like a deck, Low es also will help you select all your materials and give you a printout. If you pay for a large bundle like this (look for their fiance specials), you can just pick up the stuff as you need it and they will take it off your list. This saved us from hauling stuff home that we did not end up needing and they credited our account. You might want to go to each large store in your area and see which one has the stuff you like and will need. As for paint, we like the Low es Val spar much better than HUD Be hr. Yes, some stuff at Low es may have been a few pennies higher, but not enough to make a difference and it was worth it to get what we wanted.
Can I Rent A Chem Dry Carpet Cleaner From Home Depot Or Lowes?From Cleaning & Laundry Forum:
Can I rent a chem dry carpet cleaner from home depot or Lowes? I have really nasty stains on my carpet. My carpet overall is just very dirty (I'm talking about my room). I've tried many home remedies, but none of them seem to work. I was wondering if Chem dry carpet cleaners can be rented from home depot or Low es, and how much do they cost? Which one is better Chem dry carpet cleaners or steam cleaners? Thanks worthless response by S
Answer: I know you can rent a carpet steamer from Lowe's/Home Depot. As for a dry chem machine, I am not so sure. I personally only steam clean my carpets (they are white) because I felt the dry chem process didn't work as well. For spot cleaning Home Depot sells a dry carpet cleaning product called "Capture"...that works well in a pinch.
