    I worked at HD Supply full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the employees were friendly. The job was very easy. They have a profit sharing program, where employees get a decent bonus check each year.

    Cons

    Sometimes it was very slow paced. Mostly male environment with some attitude towards women. Lot of exposure to the weather due to doors constantly being opened.

    Advice to Management

    Give the person in this position more responsibility and more closely monitor your workers. There were some that slacked quite a bit while others did the majority of the work. Also, be more competitive with salary for this position.

    I worked at HD Supply (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, very nice facility and working conditions, open door policy seemed legitimate, nice cafeteria, friendly security

    Cons

    Very very poor health benefits, very high deductibles on insurance, little to not very much opportunity for promotion within creative department, HR department not very helpful, lots of company shifts cause shocking annual layoffs

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if there were more opportunity for growth and promotion to aspire to. Please, for the sake of all employees, improve health insurance. HDS aims to be the "healthiest company on the planet" but provides insurance that discourages employees from seeing the doctor.

    I worked at HD Supply full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    -Great Benefits, especially if you are in Sales I used to be able to say much more, but once they went Public, nothing mattered by the bottom line.

    Cons

    -Middle Mgmt likes to take ideas and present them as their own. -No Employee Loyalty. After 15 years, I was part of a 200+ RIF, which also included others with more years in than myself. They had to cut cost with a short deadline and those of us that worked so long to make a decent salary, were the quickest way to do it. -A great deal of Narcissism among the NA Mgrs., and they tended to treat others as their own personal attendants

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget all the chains in the link that work hard for you to get that Bonus.

    Pros

    Great people to work for, and and with. Fun work environment

    Cons

    Can get really busy and have to put in some long hours at times.

    Advice to Management

    In general Management is trustworthy and helpful. One piece of advice would be to just give people more of heads up when changes are coming.

    I worked at HD Supply full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Potential to make handsome commissions in addition to a fair hourly wage. 401k and health benefits are not bad.

    Cons

    HR "RIFs" (Reduction in Force) people regularly without attempting to place loyal employees in other positions. I have been squeezed out twice in 12 years. This time I'm done.

    Advice to Management

    All your "Team Spirit" and "Be Healthy","Be Happy", "Be Prepared" crap isn't worth a damn if you don't put your money where your slogan is! How about making employees feel secure in their jobs? I've had empty boxes under my desk since I came back 3 years ago just to be prepared for yesterday's boot. I was a top producer for a long time. I know I did my job well. Telling me I've been an asset to the company and it wasn't my ability or value that was the cause of losing my job made me feel even worse... And it reflects badly on you to let a valued employee go "for now". Seriously... You think I might come back again?

    Pros

    Very friendly employees. Approachable executive leadership. Multiple lines of business for career growth.

    Cons

    The company is a conglomerate of previous acquisitions. There a number of cultural and operational issues with no known plans to overcome. Long-time career outlook is questionable.

    Advice to Management

    Develop and share plans for future growth--and profitability. Address disparate processes and inefficiencies rooted in decentralized sales and operations. Instill a culture of accountability. Seek outside counsel.
