    I worked at Ace Hardware full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The pay,
    The horizontal co-workers,
    The benefits if you use them,
    Incentive pay, if you can ever get it,
    Weekends off,
    The life lessons learned.(get back in school, never work hard labor for a living).

    The pay is tough to put as a pro, because it isn't worth the extent of work that you preform

    Cons

    No flexibility,
    Negative atmosphere,
    Standards are next to impossible to meet,
    Turn-over rate is HUGE,
    Long hours(4:30-1:30),
    HOT(+100 degrees),
    Supervisors Treat you as a number and expendable.

    I highly do not recommend e er working in break stock. It is horrible. HORRIBLE. Turn over rate is average of 5 months in that department, on 2nd shift. However, the other departments probably aren't as bad. It's still super hot and there is no air conditioning.

    Look, I wasn't a bad worker, i was one of the fastest and best, and my opinion isn't the odd one out of the bunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adjust the standards that we have to meet, fix the formulas for the run times. Get AC. And a raise would be nice. 10.00/h isn't worth all the BS dealt with daily.

    I have been working at Ace Hardware full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    health insurance, 401k, schduling flexible

    Cons

    *no 401 k matching
    *the bonus you get is insulting an below market rates- make 300,000 in a month, get 20 dollars
    *bad culture which fosters unethical behavior
    *no training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take stock of store management and get rid of the deadwood. review current business practices and take a class at the community annex because it isn't the 80's anymore. make a better handbook. come in the store once a month.
