underpaid

Workplace Safety

They talk "safety" to death but in the end it always depends on how much it costs them.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Follow thru on your talk on safety, pay your employees enough to give them liveable salaries, respond to the programs that you set up such as the "employee suggestion" program sometime.

What I like about the company

Some autonomous work feeling, general teamwork, but understaffed.

What I dislike about the company

Home Depot makes billions, but store employees are absurdly underpaid for their work and knowledge, safety is limited to how much it costs them, upper management "waves the flag" but does NOT value their employees.
