Home Depot loves their employees. With the raises, profit sharing bonuses, environment, staff, etc. They have it all.

Sometimes it is very hard to speak with the customers because they do not let you give your opinion or get impatient very easily. As for policy of Home Depot, we keep our calm at all times and... continue to help them in any way possible.
