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
