    Pros

    Good locations in the U.S. Benefits were good overall.

    Cons

    Most of the managers were terrible, too many favorites and clichés, not competitive and run like a small business, not great place to grow and too unstable.,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some decent training and learn your talent.

    Pros

    It is a good company to work for.
    Pay is good to market
    Benefits are good

    Cons

    Company worries about saving itself money. they shut the doors to a lot of Warehouse Branches and put a lot of people out of work.
    - Long Hours
    - Upper management has no clue about whats going on in the field
    - Worst product control ever, employees steal

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves... or make deliveries for a while and see what the company is actually like.

    Pros

    Was going to say benefits, but that changed in 2014. Still trying to figure out who this change is better for, the employee or the company.

    Cons

    Management is a joke, from Managers all the way down to Team Leads. Unless you started working here straight out of high school and never left, don't expect to get very far within the organization. I was even told by one of my supervisors, that it doesn't matter what you did before you started working here, it is what you do once you are here," We don't care if you have a college degree, or what other job experience you may have."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more faith in your employees. You have tons of talented people working within your company, but the instant they try to improve or introduce something outside the Antiquated ways of the company, and by the time you share anything with anyone to just get ahead, and it goes through the corporate red tape and closed minded professionals including HR. Those talented people have left the company for better pay and less stress.

    Pros

    The systems and employees are wonderful. They way the company works delivery, products and overall treatment is great.

    Cons

    The pay in odd. You don't get you incentive until you reach a certain percentage. You can make the company more money and make less money for you. It doesn't make sense

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the way pay is structured

    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

    Upper management is strong and has an aggressive, exciting plan for the future. Upper management's long term goals are well thought out and plans are carried out when decisions are made.

    Cons

    HD Supply was built through acquisition, therefore everyone is a Sr Manager or VP of something. Their corporate structure is so complex that decisions are slow to be made, if they get made at all. Communication between the lines of business is poor. Communication between the central corporate management and the "field" is poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a cohesive corporate culture that flows through all the business groups. Life at the corporate office is much different than at a garden variety branch. Stick to the culture you say you want to build.

    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.
