Policy dating customers
As a Key Carrier, you have to be held to the same standard as the rest of the management staff, and as sad as it is, give up your keys.
If you complain or whine, you can pretty much bet that you will never be more than a DH anyway.
I expect something would be said if a supervisor or manager was dating a grunt, but it's never come up, so who knows... I've dated a patron who later became a co-worker (albeit, in a different building) who later became my wife. At my first place of employment, there were lots of married couples.with a reporting relationship to each other.
We also have a number of military folks and their rules are pretty clear - no officer/enlisted fraternization. Lucky for me, that rule wasn't in effect 27 years ago. Of course, after I had the audacity to marry him, there were officers in my squadron who would not speak to me. My sweetie and I finished our obligated time and joined the civilian world.... At my second (or third, depending on how you count corporate takeovers), my department admin married our director. I make a really good sour cream and chocolate chip coffee cake, and I often took it to the office to share. At my workplace it's fine to date peers, and it's fine to date someone you supervise/are supervised by...until it isn't (so the "no harassment" qualifer in the poll).
So, making hateful and generalized statements might be a reason to re-evaluate yourself and your job choices instead of blaming others or a company.
i work at ahome depot in PA, there was a dh dating a hc, not only did they date but they got married and had a baby together, and everything was fine, yet two cashiers started dating and they were told that one of them had to leave the store, yet the dh who is also a key carrier and the hc were not only dating but were married so why was it that one of the cashiers had to go but it was fine for those two, but i guess it all depends on who you know and who you blow, a lot of things what go on in the home depot is not fair and i think that a lot of managers need to take their head from their asses and stop playing favorites, if there is going to be one rule for one then there should be the same rule for all, and they should not pick and choose as to who can do what and who cant do what because then that causes a big divide within the store and if you are not part of the "click" then you have to always mind your p's and q's and walk on eggshells because anything that you do will be put iunder a microscope Had a DH and HC who were married.....of a sudden "policy" changed and one had to leave the store and transfer to another. just got told today that i have to turn in my keys due to policy changes in may of this year.
I hope it won't result in drama, but if it did, it would be on her end, I hardly even talk to the boss himself.
In another instance a manager was dating a co-worker from the same team, and it was a very well kept secret, however they were both fired because supposedly he was misusing the employee discount to buy her stuff.And the other one was Paul Bertencini, of Norwood, although i don't know if he is working there still. AT MY STORE IN JERSEY WE HAVE ASSOCIATES UNDER SAME RANKS.. I BELIEVE SOP IS THAT IF U ARE ON ANY UPPER LEVER U CAN NOT DATE WITHIN STORE. If associates show up to a bar that a salary just happens to be visiting the salary is expected to leave. This company is 2 steps away from being a concentration camp Things are not always perfect.He got a little too horny and had his way with Andrea. I shit you not that is HD's policy for "officers of the company" (you're ALWAYS on the clock with depot for salaries) dont know about dating / but asm at the store i was at was doing two women, both dept. All companies have SOP's and Policies, however, human beings are just that, human.I expect something would be said if a supervisor or manager was dating a grunt, but it's never come up, so who knows... Theoretically it's fine to date clients too, but most of them are only on-site a few days a year so the odds of meeting them and hitting it off are pretty small. In fact, getting really drunk and doing embarrassing things you regret is somewhat a past time in the industry.Yeah, the poll doesn't take into account that some of these "rules" aren't written explicitly anywhere. Relationships with customers is often frowned upon though.
I used to work for a major corporation...rules explicitly stated that one could not date their co-workers, or even work in the same dept.
