Home Depot is hiring bi-lingual supervisors? Do they hire people that can't speak English? I have applied for a lot of jobs there and not heard one thing. So maybe if I pretend to be some other nationality I may have a chance.

Since my comment earlier did not show up, here it is again. Why is Home Depot hiring bi-lingual supervisors? Do they hire people who don't speak English? I have applied for more than 20 jobs at Home Depot and have not gotten a call or anything. If Patch decides to print this comment, as well as the original one, I apologize for the duplicate.
