    I have been working at HD Supply full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pay is decent. Nice customers and great frontline employees. Which is where the money is made, but the top heavy leaders take all of the credit and play golf.

    Cons

    All of senior leadership are pals, and they're either in the in-crowd or they quickly find themselves out. Line them all up and compare notes, they have all worked together in the past and/or know where the skeletons are, and they take good care of their buddies. Definitely a "Not what you know, but who you know" atmosphere. It is tough when you are more intelligent than your boss. Plus, health benefits are HORRIBLE!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together! Quit with the Values and Culture du jour. You will never be First Choice!

    I worked at HD Supply part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    For the pay, like a summer job, and some work experience. The one in Santa Clara hires just about anyone if they pass the drug test. Usually there are a few nice people to be around, and can usually enjoy working there when not having to deal with the leads and management.

    Cons

    Terrible management. They play favorites. And at the Santa Clara one, females get favored over males. They have set schedules that do not change. So it can be difficult as a student to try and work and get the classes needed. And unless you are favored, don't expect any progression for a career. They constantly lose employees. Soon that $10 an hour isn't worth it in the long run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management. And basically new employees, so you can revamp your store so you can keep employees. Also set scheduling is ridiculous. Especially if the majority of your employees are college students, like your Santa Clara store. No wonder you almost hire anyone.

    Pros

    Hd Supply waterworks has a long history of sucesses in market. By keeping eye on ball.Great management within Hd supply waterwork at most level.

    Cons

    Spend too much time on things that have no benefits to growing the company. Have many programs forced on them from persons that have never been a branch or sold one thing. Most turn out to be total failures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    \Spend time with the people that make you the money. Believe me accounting, HR or some planning groups have never produced a single cents for this comapny. THIS is not GE.

    I worked at HD Supply

    Pros

    Had a blast getting to know other interns. My manager and mentor also worked closely with me (although without having to micro-manage). They were very supportive in my professional learnings.

    Cons

    Other managers, I could see, would have been difficult to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that managers who request for interns don't leave their interns in the dark. I know some of my intern colleagues who only saw their managers a few times during their program.

    Pros

    Orlando is a great location although the headquarters is located in a rather unsafe part of downtown Orlando. Good workout facility.

    Cons

    Very negative culture, full of passive aggressive behaviors from executive leadership. Run like an old style GE company and a very cut throat environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fake it until you make it is not a viable leadership strategy. Own your mistakes, don't ask employees to fix divisional relationships you have damaged.

    Pros

    The pay is not bad. Located in the middle of the county so, it has easy access, Used to be a subsidiary of Home Depot, don't think that it is anymore...

    Cons

    Bad hours. Now part of a National corporation, which, now has call centers all over the US, not just in SD anymore. Not enough training for first time call center employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-imagine your strategy and align your company to fit personal needs and encourage within company promotions.
