    I worked at HD Supply full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    the people (in SD at least)

    Cons

    In November 2015, the Marketing team was told that we would not be relocated.
    In December 2015-January 2016, about a dozen new marketing employees were brought onboard.
    January 12, 2016- everyone was laid off, with the option to move from SD to Atlanta if we reapplied to our jobs and took pay cuts. Hmm, decisions, decisions.
    January 12-June 3, 2016 (last day at HD), no acknowledgement of company relocation and mass layoffs except for a small unnoticeable memo.
    The way they handled layoffs was horrible, degrading, and disrespectful to the hundreds of loyal employees who dedicated their hard work to the company for 20+ years. Really shows what kind of company it is.

    Advice to Management

    Grow hearts. In the end, your actions will affect your business in the same way you treated your SD employees.

    I have been working at HD Supply full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    None, this used to be a very solid company. Once we went public we changed what made us great.

    Cons

    No leadership. No manager since beginning of year other managers leaving. Outsiders come to help, but it isn't working. You will work long hours and not be thanked. Everyone is leaving, warehouse is s mess, attitudes are bad, too many clicks. This place is becoming a laughing stock to everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Get on the floor and work with your people. Stop trying to run Dallas from an ivory tower. We are real people trying to do our best. You guys are leading us in the wrong direction. Let's put the customers and associates first. Open your eyes and figure this out.

    I worked at HD Supply full-time

    Pros

    Customers interaction an building relationships which HD cant

    Cons

    Still looking for drivers. Unbelievable lack of leadership, direction and any advancement. No monkeys no show. Cleary nothing changes. Very sick place to work. Recommend to know one. Btw. No respect for opinion to help make things better.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, allow advancement not continue to suck the life out of people and make them feel dead for their hard work. Experienced 5+ years of that and had horrible upper management like the guy from st. Loiuis belittle me for standing up for myself. Management needs change in the Minneapolis location. Too much turnover. Company has no direction.

    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.
