    The Depot

    I found this recently, an employee giving their opinion.

    "Home Depot, deconstructed
    January 8, 2007

    Re "$210 million to step aside," Jan. 4

    As a Home Depot employee for 15 years, the last six under Chief Executive Bob Nardelli's watch have been the most disappointing. Although he presided over record sales and profits, the tangible benefits to the average worker were reduced to mediocre levels. While he was making $140 million to $200 million, the average worker's longevity bonus was removed, merit awards were taken away, a cap was placed on pay and our stock plan was altered in Nardelli's favor. Under his watch, we have seen our perks quietly taken away.

    As a parting shot, Nardelli now walks away with $210 million. The stewards of our company made a costly mistake in keeping him so long, but alas we were the ones who had to pay. My hope is that we can start a new chapter in our company and try to reclaim some of the greatness lost under Nardelli's watch.

    I was at H.D. the other day and I was special ordering some doors, I brought up the subject of Nardelli leaving and the lady said she was sick of hearing about it. I told her that "I" am in favor of him leaving and the money would/should be better spent on retaining the good employees and hiring more good folks and that the higher moral of the company would be a long needed boost. She replied that's never going to happen.

    I cannot predict the future but at least in my idealistic mind, it would be a good start.

          Another two-year-old thread being revived...I guess it might be interesting to discuss the HD developments over the past couple of years.

            Re: What's with Home Depot?

            I went to get information about the new granite top table saw (R-4511) and no one at Home Depot could give me any information. I went to 3 different H.D. stores and only had one person who would even take my name and number in order to try and get back with me about the saw. Ridgid says the saw is in production and that I can get one through H.D.. What's up with that, is there an alternative?

              Isn't Nardelli one of the car CEO'S asking congress for money to help them stay in business now?
