    I have been working at HD Supply as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    As an Intern, most companies give you useless projects to do. At HDS I fel incredibly involved in every aspect of my department. The people are amazing and you really feel like you are a part of a big family. The company seems to truly care about their ideals and pushes every associate to succeed.

    Cons

    Changes are incredibly slow to come about because of the high number of managers. There are, in my opinion, too many layers of management to allow for an effectively run machine.

    Pros

    Pay is decent. Nice customers and great frontline employees. Which is where the money is made, but the top heavy leaders take all of the credit and play golf.

    Cons

    All of senior leadership are pals, and they're either in the in-crowd or they quickly find themselves out. Line them all up and compare notes, they have all worked together in the past and/or know where the skeletons are, and they take good care of their buddies. Definitely a "Not what you know, but who you know" atmosphere. It is tough when you are more intelligent than your boss. Plus, health benefits are HORRIBLE!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together! Quit with the Values and Culture du jour. You will never be First Choice!

    Pros

    Upper management is strong and has an aggressive, exciting plan for the future. Upper management's long term goals are well thought out and plans are carried out when decisions are made.

    Cons

    HD Supply was built through acquisition, therefore everyone is a Sr Manager or VP of something. Their corporate structure is so complex that decisions are slow to be made, if they get made at all. Communication between the lines of business is poor. Communication between the central corporate management and the "field" is poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a cohesive corporate culture that flows through all the business groups. Life at the corporate office is much different than at a garden variety branch. Stick to the culture you say you want to build.

    Pros

    Great idea - to be the best wholesale building supply company. They have the ability to define the market and be #1 in the world.

    Cons

    Too focused on being GE, Motorola, or Home Depot. They should not try to be any of those.

    Pros

    Just for the overtime hours

    Cons

    The way of the management run this warehouse so bad that they talked about the problems every single work day but they didn't nothing to fix the problem at all. Also there was so much in favor person that they just give higher job position for their favor persons or friends only. If you were th hard work person and you try to apply for better position they wouldn't let you have it. they tried to keep you at where you worked.
