    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

    I was given a lot of opportunity at HD Supply. Because the company is fairly new, there has been a lot of unique projects to work on, which has been good for career growth.

    Cons

    Unique culture that you'll need to adapt to in order to be happy and successful.

    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.

    Fun, challenging, and rewarding internship!

    Pros

    You never feel alone during your internship at HD Supply. With the support of nearly each employee or fellow intern, it makes it a great work environment.

    Cons

    Lots of different software available for use but no clear instructions on how to obtain the software or how to use them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The intern program is fantastic and you should never do away with it. Although it is great to expand the program, it can get pretty chaotic trying to coordinate with so many other interns for projects.

    Cons

    There are a lot if opportunities for growth, but you have to work there a long time before you will get to move up or get promotions. Work Schedules werent very flexible.

    Pros

    Great benefits and opportunities to advance. There are a lot of contacts and opportunities to network. Everybody is very friendly and focused on making the company the best in the industry.

    Cons

    The work environment is fairly fast paced with a lot of pressure to meet expectations. Management has a lot of plans and a strict timeline.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management should spend more time evaluating how corporate decisions affect the lowest level employees and the lines of businesses.
