    Pros

    Great work environment. Managers are selecting new hires who fit well with the current team (in my department, at least), which makes everyone's job easier. Advancement options, if you put in the work.

    Cons

    Benefit package is not as good as I believe it could be. It seems some departments like to hire people as young as possible in order to keep salary averages low, which may have an effect on the salary of people who deserve more.

    Pros

    -Easy work load for the most part
    -immersive experience across all lines of business
    -Team first atmosphere

    Cons

    -"We've done it this way forever" mentality
    -Power of customers heavily outweighs your power as a distributor
    -Interaction with exceedingly difficult customers and co-workers daily

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Do more reviews to allow associates opportunity to improve work habits
    -Support each branch as its own entity, the entire market is not the same across the board

    Pros

    The work schedule was flexible. Overall quality depends on the other people you worked with. Management is very open to suggestions.

    Cons

    The quality depended on the people you worked with. This could be both a pro or con depending on the team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be beneficial for management to provide more perks to improve overall company morale. Suggestions are taken into consideration, but management should take a pro-active role in making the workplace a better place.

    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.
