New Home Depot

The title of this campaign is Baseline which usually denotes studies done to formulate a standard for future projects.
I though this would be one of the normal quarterly Home Depot shops where you have 2 interactions then do a purchase and return. Nope, silly me. Not only do you have to do the 2 interactions, all the shopping including waiting for the associate to unlock a drill but also inspect the restroom, and get an employee to get a table saw down from the rafters, then change your mind about buying. There are also additional inventory questions for each item on the shopping list. No increase in fees due to COL but more work. This MSC is really pushing the envelope.

I guess now we know why you can never get assistance in those stores. The employees are all busy doing stupid, needless crap for mystery shoppers!

I'm pretty sure I'm invisible, I can walk into any store and no store associate can see see me, no matter what I do. In a store when I was shopping, I stood stood 2' in front of an associate that I needed to speak to for the shop. He looked right through me and asked the man at the end of the aisle behind me if he needed help. This isn't a new occurrence, it doesn't matter what store I'm in, or whether I'm shopping for me or shopping for mystery shopping, this is how I am treated at stores. Grocery stores, department stores, electronic stores, Home improvement stores, it doesn't make any difference, I am the very definition of invisible, packaged in the form of a short fat woman.

Actually, today the associates were getting ready for inventory. It was difficult to get the pictures because there were a lot of extra people in the aisles.

I was particularly fond of the ones who would ask if i needed help then after i asked for help the person would say I don't know, this is not my store. /s

It's sad. When Home Depot first opened around me years ago, they had employees who had worked in the trades as employees/contractors. They could answer your questions about projects you were working on.

Now the majority of their employees are high school kids that have no knowledge about the products they're selling let alone the projects they would be used on or how they should be used.

Hell, it's even an issue when trying to return items with a receipt because majority of these kids have no common sense.

A perfect trait for a mystery shopper!!!

The older I get, the shorter and rounder I get, too; pretty soon I, too, will be invisible!
