    Who is running the stores?

    I have owned home depot shares for years now,..I retired a few years ago and recently decided to go back for part time work and Home Depot came to mind. This is the company I have spent so much money at over the years. Well 10 weeks into working freight (4hrs per night weekends off) I must say what an eye opener. Due to the cheaper young labor I see so much money wasted in excessive labor by the socializing (young females employees having the young male management team at their beck and call, with little to no production ), talk and walk around management, with most of the regular employees doing the same. The F bomb seems to be a large part of their vocabulary. A hand full of good workers with good work ethics are stand outs. Coming from a Customer Service background, I see that too a great need of improvement by most of the under performing employees. I do love going and keeping the old work ethics when I clock in for the workout feel great. Don't know if I'll keep this stock.
