    Pros

    Upper Management is great, clientele is the guy/gal next door. Company culture is "Be Healthy", nothing wrong with that. Encouraged to get out in the community and make a difference. Most important is the encouragement to have a healthy work/life balance.

    Cons

    Salary low, but better than no salary

    I worked at HD Supply as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    I worked here as a design contractor in the Creative Services department. This was good for my overall experience as an entry-level designer at the time.

    Cons

    I felt very disrespected here, often, and the overall vibe was extremely negative. I observed others being treated poorly as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be respectful of temporary employees. Just because someone is not a full-fledged employee of the company doesn't mean he or she shouldn't be treated as an intelligent human being who is of worth.

    Pros

    HD Supply is a company who believes in the happiness and well being of its employees. It has many initiatives in place that allow a person to maintain a healthy working relationship directly at work and socially outside of work. They promote health, family, and overall integrity

    Cons

    HD Supply is a spin off of Home Depot, it hasn't yet found it's full growth potential. It recently went public and that made it change some financial objectives by way of "cutting excess fat". Some employees got laid off, a very small percentage, and some extra spending was cut back by way of perks, etc, but that's typical for any healthy functional profitable company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to lead from the top down, keep your ears open to suggestions and allow feedback that is healthy to assist in the growth and prosperity of your company. Continue to offer excellent perks to those who show Best Effort.

    corporate change in directions regarding market share causes confusion within the ranks.

    Pros

    There are not any pros

    Cons

    The worst management EVER!! They treat you like dirt and expect you to do everything but your job. The management is unrealistic and has employees perform cleaning bathrooms so mgmt can pocket money saved. No class and treats employees like dirt. HR is also a joke. If your accounts are growing, the take them away and give to their favorite sellers. Run do not walk if they contact you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up your branches and get new mgmt

    I worked at HD Supply

    Pros

    Location is great (San Diego), the facility and environment were very positive. I liked the ability to talk with anyone in the organization from the top down.

    Cons

    Management did not have clear direction. I started with no clear directive and really thought they were innovative in there approach (IT). That was not the case they were to focused on other priorities.
