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

    Pros

    Very good work life balance, most of the people are very good to work with

    Cons

    High employee turnover, especially contractors and consultants. Systems needs lot of improvement and upgrades. Too many changes taking place without due diligence or proper transition midstream of an ongoing business process/framework. At times management is quick to blame the employee for lack of framework and system deficiency that they have.

    Advice to Management

    About time to upgrade and fix the old systems....

    Pros

    No pros at all

    Cons

    1. HD Supply has release every month and employees would be on fire every month.
    2. For every release you might need to work for two days week end.. i.e 24 days extra work per year (no money)
    3. There is bonus of 3% which is negligible compared to other companies
    4. Managers are directed to perform micro management which they show their talent in harassing.
    5. They might ask for each and every small change to document which is good one way but it frustrates from employee prospective
    6. They follow charm approval process which is another mess, it requires lot of approvals and documents for a small change
    8. Medical , 401K benefits are not that great.. No way compare with other companies
    9. Managers try to cover themselves and do not listen what you suggest and propose. They try to impose what they think,
       If something goes wrong ultimate blame would be on you.
    10. Since it is medium level company they do not allocate budgets for new technologies
    11. They are way behind in Technologies and lot of failures in implementation
    12. Some of employees work remotely all the time and do not expect any response from them in timely manner
    13. Remote working employees are doing multiple jobs outside of HDSupply and they do not concentrate on the projects,
        and they do not respond.

    My suggestion would be if anyone is on job, do not take a risk to join in HD Supply for career purpose. If you do not have job then
    consider to join here.
    Think twice before taking decision.

    I have been working at HD Supply full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are amazing. Down to earth, kind and nearly everyone is good at what they do / works hard. A fast-moving, engaging environment that provides both challenges to navigate and opportunities to make a difference. An over-achiever's dream

    Cons

    Definitely some challenges and complexities to doing your job due to the fact that HD Supply is a company built on acquisitions with a dispersed workforce. But that at least means you are never bored!

    Advice to Management

    Be open to doing things differently. Cross-functional, cross-BU collaboration is key

    I worked at HD Supply (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very knowledgeable, dedicated and team oriented sales force.

    Cons

    Top management changes too often with Facilities Management. Current management has taken micromanagement to new heights.
    Currently having major inventory and transportation issues and upper management either can't or won't address the problems.
    Not sure what the plan for Facilities Mtnce is, if there is one, but it won't survive long the way it is being managed currently.

    I worked at HD Supply full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some departments are more flexible than others. The corporate office is nice but the warehouse environment needs improvement which the company is aware of and working to improve.

    Cons

    As with any company, corporate politics play a large role. If you are in with the right group of people, there are plenty of opportunities, if you are not, you are limited.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with your employees. People value honest feedback.
