Supervisor of 15 people (Former Employee), Concord, NC – July 24, 2013
I worked for HD Supply for more than 14 years and they always treated everyone with respect, high regard for family. HD Supply always looked for better benefits for their employees. Great company. Typical day at work was satisfying, meeting deadlines on time. High moral. I learned how to be a better manager. I came to this company already knowing the – more... product. Learning more about computers would have to be the hardest part. Traveling was the most enjoyable part. – less
Training Specialist (Former Employee), New Braunfels, TX – July 19, 2013
Associates at HD are very good to work with. I developed training content for the majority of the day and facilitated training classes on other days. I was constantly learning new things because the system is always changing for the better. I believe that the management does need some work. There is too much leniency with the HR policies and they are – more... not always enforced such as the dress code. – less
Materials Manager/ meter tech (Former Employee), field ok, tx, tn – July 12, 2013
Pros: great pay, advancement oppertunities
Cons: some employees are union
HD supply is a great company. Management always let me do my job without micromanaging my work in the field. I knew what was expected of me and did not even see my boss for two years. It's a great company to work for if you are self motivated.
Field Sales Representative (Current Employee), Aliso Viejo, CA – June 27, 2013
Pros: somewhat open schedule, great boss
Cons: some back-breaking days.
I typically start my day at 5 am. Get in, get my product and start putting it away. During the day I may have to execute some or all of the activities listed above. If there is only one thing I could take away from this job it would be how I have become better at time management. My direct superiors are amazing people and I will hate leaving them. I – more... don't want to leave this job, I like the work and I like the company. My problem is due to the lack of economic growth, the company can't grow, and thus promotions are lacking. I am forced to wait for a position to open up in a place I would like to move my family to. I want to grow in this field and unfortunately I feel as though I have stalled here. – less
Manager of Wire Department (Current Employee), 4545 Lanfield RD Houston,Tx – June 19, 2013
Pros: constant hours never a layoff period
Cons: no promotion or good raises
Been here for 8 years they expect you to go above and beyond without correct compensation. I have great reviews but my raise doesn't match. Definitely not a place you want to try and make a career out of.
Portfolio Inside Sales Rep (Current Employee), New Braunfels, TX – June 17, 2013
Pros: family orientated
Cons: 30 minute lunches, not a lot of room for advancement
Very hard to advance to higher positions. Its a customer service based company. If you like customer service, this is the job for you. That is one of my most enjoyable parts of the job. Management is not always available to help you
