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

    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!

    I have been working at HD Supply as an intern (less than an year)

    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.

    I worked at HD Supply full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Not many, due to the fact that we were unable to see how good *as they say* the benefits were!

    Cons

    That they hired a group of people for a position that after a month decided to "restructure" and let them all go. These people left other good jobs for the opportunity to "grow" within the company that they say promotes from within, when really they just put 13 people out of work after a month of working and trying hard.
    Not good practice. They did not try and offer them another position somewhere in the company they waited until the middle of the day to let them go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you have a long term position available before you hire people, ask them to leave their current employment to work for you and then let them go after a month.

    I worked at HD Supply full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    None. I was lied to from the first interview. I am not sure if anything that was ever discussed to me by my immediate supervisor was honest or true.

    Cons

    Unethical.
    Self centered Local Management that is more interested in themselves & their status instead of employees. Human Resources is non-existent.
    Any top revenue salesperson can break absolutely every basic company policy-from Policy "A " thru Policy "Z" and all management personnel from the Regional Manager level on down will turn their head & act as if no policy has been broken. If you produce > $2 MM in Dollar Sales anything that you do (sexually harass another employee, bribe a customer, bring a weapon onto the workplace), will be swept under the rug!
    The absolute worst workplace environment ever.
    How they have never been sued is beyond my comprehension.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck!
    For all of the Town Hall meetings, etc, someone needs to drill down, Branch by Branch & learn about the real serious unethical & HR problems that exist.
