Packer/Picker (Current Employee) – Northlake, IL – July 15, 2016
Working here for 8 months and I have no positives. The only thing uplifting about this job is the people whom you work with. The managers are all up-tight and really have no regard or care for their employees. While Working in the pick mod for 8 months 4 people quit and 3 were fired. Not to mention our district manager quit, or hr manager quit and so did another area manager. I feel like this Job is ok. The hours are way to hard especially on a young mother with a 2 year old , which mangers don't care about. The company point system is ridiculous. I feel like any bad manger can take a great staff and make everyone want to quit. If you enjoy working from 10am-10pm under mangers who just sit around and watch you work, then this job is for you
Productive and fun place to work at....and it does have a ping pong table
Senior Order Coordinator (Current Employee) – Capitol Heights, MD – July 14, 2016
Working with HD Supply has given me the opportunity to utilize my administrative skills. On a daily basis 85% of my work is done through my emails. We are currently working on the SAP system, I have now 5 years experience on this system. I guess you can say I set up the contract for the installers to installs, wood, carpet, vinyl, backsplash, & wall tile in to new homes that have been built. When I first got here we went through 6 supervisors only to have them leave. The supervisor I have now is great, he not one to micro manage. He give you your space and allows you to do your work accordingly.
As a forklift driver you spent a lot of time in the sun.
FORK LIFT OPERATOR (Former Employee) – North Hollywood, CA – July 7, 2016
This was actually a fun place to work at when I was employed there, lots of friendly employees and and the job was not difficult if you were comfortable loading things into customers cars/trucks with a forklift. Ive since been back as a customer and the vibe is different now.
Fun machinery and time to yourself.
Gets really hot and cooling down is very difficult.
Driver (Former Employee) – Hanover, MD – June 28, 2016
I was hired to get 1 of 4 routes available. Once I started they took me off of the route that I had then told me that I was going to do a Virginia route. I became a cover driver which did not sit well with me, but being a team player I did that for a month. I still never was given my own route and continued to be thrown on different routes. I did my Job well and HD did not care as long as a body was on a route all was good..... DO NOT SETTLE FOR THEIR BULL!!!!
Field Account Manager (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – June 23, 2016
Long fast passed days.I learned many needs and products multi family facilities use to operate. Management is helpful but lots of chiefs, not always clear who you need to go to for help. Co-workers were fantastic. Very helpful from outside sales along with the fantastic sales support team. Hardest part of the job is the many departments and wide range product line. Most enjoyable part of the job is the freedom and most of the customers... some customers you will never make happy.
Reciever/Stocker (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – June 15, 2016
I worked at HD Supply in St. Louis Mo. The actual work was easy and could be fun, but the G.M.. was only interested in the shipping dept, and actively disrespected the recieving department. Would have us go and help pull orders for sghipping letting our own work back up and then tell us we had to stay late to get our stuff done. if we were able to get done on time an were gettiing ready to leave for the day, he would stop us and tell us we had to go pull orders so that "shipping could get out at a reasonable time". We were told that everyone would be accountable for what they did, but recieving always had to come behind shipping and clean up their trash messes. I walked out one morning when I was told to clean up after shipping, and if I didnt like it I could leave. So I left. Write ups were and everyday thing in recieving
SE Regional HR Director (Former Employee) – SE Region, Atlanta, GA – May 21, 2016
Working with 20 different warehouse facilities, and hundreds of Drivers and Outside Sales people was very rewarding. The successful merger of Hughes Supply with HD Supply was due to caring leaders. I visited my facilities and others to solve employee relations and other problems and educate new team members about their new company. Stretching associates for their day and training them simultaneously on performance management or benefits programs and was a big hit.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Marietta, GA – May 11, 2016
The employees are great but management is horrible with the exception of maybe 1 or 2 managers. Gossiping and bullying comes from the management team who talk down to the reps. If you apply shy away from customer service and go to another department with level headed individuals.
Friendships override experience when trying to advance
