    Pros

    Flexibility, you work on your territory, possible overtime

    Cons

    Sometimes not very well appreciated by other positions. Benefits are not as great either, but it seems we are not the only one with that problem. Overall, no cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a great place to start as this is a position that sees everything and is easier to move up within company. Training is alright, but I haven't been in any place prior to this one that had something better to offer in terms of training. It's a busy place so you do get to jump right into work. Other positions that you communicate with don't see the value of order processor and hard work that is being put in, which might be frustrating at times, but have great upper management that can help you over come any miscommunications.

    I worked at HD Supply as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company encourages a work-life balanace. Employees are supportive instead of overly-competitive with coworkers. During my time there, I saw someone move departments or roles almost every week or two. Huge room for growth.

    Cons

    Some of the upper level management struggle to move the company towards innovation. Moving from a catalog-based company to a company that finds success in online channels and new technologies is a struggle, but they are trying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in people who are innovative and entrepreneurial in their mindsets. Continue the internship program as it allowed opportunities to shape and teach the next generation of leaders.

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

    Pros

    Great co-workers, fast paced work. There is room for advancement, promote from within mentality. Management is open to listening to new ideas.

    Cons

    Benefits are good but could be better. Summer is the busy season so getting time off could be troublesome, you need to schedule it off at the beginning of the year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to spend more time in the field to get a better understanding how the market is acting.

    Pros

    Very solid company, each facility is pretty close knit. The regional managers treat employees well, my regional manager was a great people person with many years experience in the industry. Pretty good benefits.

    Cons

    Upper management and corporate needs to be reduced in size. Each facility is very unique to its location, so a one size fits all approach wont work. Too many people at corporate trying to justify their job by wasting employees time at individual facilities.

    Salary low, but better than no salary
