    I worked at HD Supply full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some great hard working sales employees
    Decent compensation

    Cons

    Poorly managed upper and middle management - no one watching them - micro manage to extremes - head hunting is common if you are not in lockstep and is seemingly encouraged - many great sales people have left due to this aggressive culture that is allowed to go unfettered - this creates a very toxic culture - this may create compliance but does not create loyal employees
    Senior management seems to turn a blind eye

    Advice to Management

    Remove and or re-train the upper and middle managers - very serious problems there -

    I worked at HD Supply as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    National company with large footprint in the areas served. Flexibility in employment location.

    Cons

    Large company that operates in a very segmental fashion. Potential to truly maximize on its shear size to grow exponentially. Had not prior to my departure.

    Advice to Management

    They have the potential to be the Grainger of the construction supply market in the the US. A more intentional evaluation of methods to operate more cohesively could make them the largest construction/safety distributor in the Chicago Market as well as the country
