There are mixed reviews for Home Depot. Some customers were unhappy with the delivery, the pricing, the quality of the products, and the customer service. One customer said, "Very bad experience. The initial did not go through online. Had to call customer support in the morning. At first it seemed like it was an easy fix but then it ended up take her (name was Shantay) about 30-40 minutes to re-enter my order. After all that, she charged the wrong price. After I made her aware, she wanted to give me a gift card for the difference. Why? Who knows. Anyways, I cancelled the order with her and told her to have her supervisor call me back. No one ever called!! I went back online and re-entered the order in 3 minutes max. Then, I get a call from another store that told me that Shantay had already charged me the incorrect amount and I had to give them my credit card number, again! Just to get the credit back, even though the order was already cancelled. Bad customer service at all levels!".
