I worked at HD Supply full-time (More than 3 years)

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.

    Some of the most real, hard-working people I have ever worked with. Field sales reps are honest and have a good relationship with product teams and distribution centers

    Cons

    Very segmented company, little tie in or support from corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Break down the barriers between the business units, create a cohesive central brand.

    I worked at HD Supply (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Seemed like a stable place to work. While understanding more about the company in the detailed interviews, they have good programs for the employees and seem to look to improve in processes and procedures. The warehouse supervisor and associates I talked with during the interviewing process seemed happy and there looked to be inclusion at every level for ideas to improve the operation.

    Cons

    The initial interviewing process went very well. However, though my first interview was 4 hours long, the manager took me through a complete tour of the facility and I met many associates, he even eluded to having had hired previous managers that were on interviews that long, I was called back for a face to face with the director. I was told I was one of the top candidate if not the top candidate. After the face to face with the director I never heard back from them. Not even to let me know they were passing me up. I don't expect a reason, but this was very unprofessional. I called the manager, he was very open and candid with me during the process and I felt I have known him for years, and left a couple of messages over a 3 week period. I even called the HR rep that spoke very highly of me and left her a message. No response whatsoever. In the end I am happy I was not called in as with that amount of unprofessionalism from the manager and HR, I would not want to work with them.

    Advice to Management

    Remain consistent in the interviewing process and keep the communication open. You never know when you may be working for one of the interviewees or if they will ever be a customer of your company.
