    Current Employee - Sales Floor Associate in Oklahoma City, OK

    I have been working at Ace Hardware full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I love the people I work with and I'm always learning something new everyday.

    Cons

    ... where to start...... well it took 3 different Store Managers in 8 months to get me set to full time so I could get benefits, vacation time and all that other stuff I thought I already had and I had been working 40+ hours every week from the day I started and was only put as part-time in the system.... and did they back pay the error of vacation/sick time I would have earned? No they did not. I work closing shifts constantly even though everyone knows I am a single mother and I requested to work morning or mid shift when I was hired. I make minimum wage.... and no minimum wage here isn't $10 it's 7.25 here in oklahoma after taxes, insurance, and the hour cuts the new (yet awesome) store manager has instated, I only bring home around $350 every 2 weeks i'm sorry but that just doesn't cut it! We do not get paid enough for everything we have to deal with and have to learn and know. Our equipment needs updating in fact the whole store does. We are subject to asbestos, no hot water, and so many more heath risk factors...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please look at how hard we work and things that can be changed... I absolutely love my job but, I'm having to search for better opportunities because you are paying us table scraps and we work so hard for nothing.

    Customers are great, the knowledge gained is wonderful, the employers not so much.

    Even if people aren't managing a person, you can promote them to manage a product or department. This is the best way you'll keep people.

    Current Employee - Customer Service Associate in Ashland, VA

    I have been working at Ace Hardware part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pleasant and rewarding work experience, great staff, helpful and knowledgeable associates, experienced managers.

    Cons

    some lifting, standing for long periods during the shift, sometimes not enough associates staffed to stock shelves on stock days, sometimes not enough associates on duty to serve customers, who may have to wait. Store well stocked but cluttered in some areas with too many non-hardware items.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider more flexible schedules to have maximum associates on duty during peak periods, such as 4 or 6 hour work schedules to cover these peak sales periods.

    Some of the pros become the cons with many people hanging around too long without bringing new ideas and techniques to the mix.
