    Pros

    The company is great always allowing you to interact with other stores and members. Really great learning opportunities and working on making it easier for the members to learn. Really trying to modernize and grow the company. And always able to give you answers.

    Cons

    Sometimes their product decisions for sales not always the best need to get more creative but also keep it simple such as Black Friday ads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create opportunities for retailers the ability to grow into corporate and or ownerships so that the young people can create careers.

    Pros

    With John Hartmann at the helm and huge investments in growing the business announced in Q4 of 2014 it's a great time to join True Value. Having spent much of my career recruiting for technology professionals I'm excited to join the company just in time to see heavy investment in some really interesting IT projects. Not to mention all the other new roles that are being introduced in 2015.

    Cons

    True Value has traditionally not been know as a great place to work if you're an IT professional looking to build on the latest technology infrastructure. It will be interesting to see how that presentation changes as the company invests heavily in upgrades and new initiates.

    I have been working at True Value part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    While working there I felt like the people that I worked with became like a family to me. I looked forward to going to work every single day. The managers were always more than helpful to teach you everything they know, they were really good about taking my under their wings. They also taught me the real-life side of business, nothing was fabricated to make it seem better than it was. They are extraordinarily knowledgeable and experienced.

    Cons

    The only con for me really was progressing upwards. The pay did increase slightly year by year but as far as obtaining new responsibilities I did find that I eventually hit a wall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. I learned so much about sales, hardware, and customer service.

    I worked at True Value full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Management was thoroughly dedicated to community and flat out doing good business. We strived for an atmosphere and to provide a service to keep our customers coming back, and were successful in doing so. Work was fast paced and demanding at times, but extremely satisfying.

    Cons

    Employee schedules seemed difficult to coordinate, especially in such a small business.

    I worked at True Value

    Pros

    Customer based, the people really like their job. It's fun to see how your advice helps make peoples lives easier.

    Cons

    It is though to move up in position beyond a manager. Although that is a pretty high position and comes with good responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They're doing a good job. I think they need to inject more finances into the stores and help with promotion and advertising to further customer awareness.
