Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – November 7, 2013
Pros: lots of overtime
Cons: long commute, no drivers license at the time.
Full-time position as a shipping/receiving clerk. Day consisted of unloading and loading trucks and picking orders. Co-workers seemed to be a little more held back and kept to themselves. Although co-workers weren't as friendly, my job at hand was not effected. I resigned due to long commute on subway and conflicted with my lifestyle.
Answer all email and voice mail for the first hour, per-approve credit applications; call up customer for payment information, release credit holds. I learn a little about the Construction Industry, who to give credit to and who not to extend credit to. My manager was a terrific person, always ready to lend a hand and motivate his team. No distortion – more... here; it was a really hot political environment to work under, I was considered a threat to my co-worker because I was new temporary employee and I was doing very well productivity wise, many people have already lost jobs.
There was no hard part about this job, being the temp- they loaded the work on me but I endured.
The most enjoyable part of this job was helping out the customers, many of our customers thanked me for my determination to sort out their problems and the Salesmen also liked me and even brought me treats, Coffee and donuts. – less
Stocking Supervisory/Entry level management (Current Employee), Industry, CA – November 25, 2013
Since my first day as the supervisor for the stocking department I was able to tell that this company was a land slide waiting to happen. Unfortunately, a joining a fortune 500 company like HD Supply isn't all it's cracked up to be. Senior management is a joke, never knowing when an issue should be made. The managers and those who you report to on a – more... daily basis have been there so long that they are blind to the necessary changes that needed implementation. When I innovative idea is presented, they merely look away as though nothing was needing improvement. Management and management alone is going to be the downfall to this fortune 500 company. Currently, and for the past year, they have been using SAP ECC-EPP, a system that they know very little about. They waste your time with useless seminars and meetings, but non of which carry any importance or weight when it comes to daily functions. The amount of brainstorming that is being done only to have to action taken is ridiculous.
Just to sum up the ridiculous nature of this very family oriented and lack of acknowledgement business, HD Supply (City of Industry) has numerous associates related to one senior manager, if you can call her that. Their stocking department has to pick up the slack for the inventory mismanagement, and employee who have been there longer then some senior managers still ask the same questions and are one dimensional. Is this or has this ever been a company that would recommend to a friend or even family member, not a chance. At the end of the day it's all business, but unfortunately this business looks good on paper but not in reality. – less

Customer Service/Warehouse (Former Employee), Kent, WA – October 10, 2013
Fast paced job, constantly on the go. I've learned moving at a fast pace, making sure all customers orders are correct. Management was helpful and supported us. My co-workers there we were like a big family, people would bump heads here and there. But at the end of the day we would always push and pick each other up. The hardest part of the job was – more... when we were hit hard with orders and be short staff.
