    Pros

    really enjoyed working with HD Supply! Very nice team who is always there to support you in both professional and personal life situations. Good caring managers who really take care of you. Constant holiday parties/picnics/potlucks ;), never a boring moment! You are as involved as you want to be, nobody pressures you into extra stuff. I had to relocate in less than a year to another state and everyone on my office team, as well as clients tried their best to help me find a new gig at the new place.

    Cons

    did not find observe/go through any bad things with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good work!

    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.

    Pros

    Immediate paid vacation & sick time, opportunities to advance. Company appears to care about the health and well being of employees and offers many programs to assist those values.

    Cons

    The pay is above minimum wave, more like medium range, but you are stuck there for a long time. Yearly raises aren't really that great, and the company is going downhill since they've become publicly traded. Management doesn't seem to care about the opinions of employees and often make poorly informed decisions that they end up retracting later because of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people that actually do the job. You'll find out where the weaknesses are.

    I worked at HD Supply full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I really liked the company and my team. We had great collaboration and could speak our minds. More often than not our concerns were addressed and reasons given for why we went in the direction we did. I was afforded many opportunities for getting widespread work experience.

    Cons

    While I was there I was told repeatedly that I was overdue for a promotion by my management team. The red tape for promotion and entrenched management made forward progress very difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you cannot promote a valuable employee, put something in place that allows for economic progress to show how they are valued.

    Pros

    Steady salary with a competitive portfolio of products.

    Cons

    Can be micro managing. Company is on the market because it went public. Bad move for the employees.
    Did ruthless layoffs a few months ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most managers are good and have a Home Depot background.

    Pros

    Great benefits, no weekends, normal 9-5. Pay is good, not great. Managers seem to always be fair and understanding. Field sales has a lot of freedom. Solid company, leader in the facilities maintenance industry.

    Cons

    Moving up can be difficult, company was growing fast 3 years ago but after we went public everything hit a plateau. Company is nepotistic. Micromanaging is obnoxious. Cross department communication is poor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tightening your belt does not instill confidence in loyal employees who have been here for years

    I worked at HD Supply as an intern (less than a 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.
