    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

    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

    Pros

    San Diego is a beautiful area with plenty to do on the weekend. Pricey yet still very nice for Southern California.

    Cons

    The place is plagued with EX GE stooges and Bain Capital flunkies who don't care about nothing but profit. Benefits suck, 401k sucks and the lack of clear direction hurts the organization. Lots of layers of people who don't do anything but manage pivot tables and PowerPoint slides. Company has potential once it sheds itself of incompetent management who can make a profit and care about its employees by providing decent compensation and bonus. This is "Not" a fun place to work! Don't be fooled by the volleyball nets out front. Layoffs are always happening here when profitability is not met. Don't believe anything you are told here. Run fast when the try to recruit you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no advice as the management do not care. You are just another "Cog" in the proverbial wheel. I read the reviews before coming and should have taken my other offers as this place truly sucks!
