    I have been working at HD Supply full-time (more than 3 years)

    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

    Pros

    Latest IT software, salary, location

    Cons

    Company hypes itself too much. No room for advancement that is get stuck in a rut. Not able to use your talent. The management is very tight in accepting anything creative, that is there is a lot of political jungle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please train your managers to 1. accept suggestions for improvement. 2. Train them in good management practices

    Pros

    Except under unusual circumstances there is adequate parking.

    Cons

    Marketing/upper management has absolutely no clue how to manage the website, content for the website or basic inventory systems in the 21st century. The company is manually entering in website and email orders via fax machine. They have no content management system and no idea why one is even necessary. The lack of basic business intelligence is disturbing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire actual eCommerce and marketing professionals.

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

    Pros

    Good people to work with, willing to work with you. Company interested in good work-life balance

    Cons

    Within a month of being hired they had a RIF and laid us off. Not enough time to really formulate much of an opinion but this was very hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider alternatives to just letting people go, perhaps giving them an opportunity for other positions open in the company.

    Pros

    Pay is decent, co workers are okay overall , getting new equipment, okay health insurance. Opportunity to buy stock in company.

    Cons

    Current management is only concerned about numbers not the staff. There has been a total purge of management ( good and bad managers were let go ). Management really doesn't have a clue about what goes on in the field. High rate of on the job injuries and management blames staff for getting hurt. All parts of the DC are under staffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to needs of the staff, especially why injuries are occurring. Stop worrying about why the numbers are low and pay more attention what is working and build on it. Add more staff and get them trained properly, not just thrown out there. Hire good and knowledgeable supervisors, not your friends.
