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

Pros

The people that best contribute to the store are great personally. Every day presents new problems and opputunities to be creative in finding short and inexpensive solutions. You're never restricted to one department in the store and this allows one to quickly expand their diy knowledge. For the most part there is always something to do, especially if you keep your eyes open and are a self starter.

Cons

Sales bring out the worst types of customers to the store. In some instances such as cleaning supplies there are too many duplicates and options to stock in a store. Some departments in my opinion are hardly worthy of a hardware store concerning itself with, for example hobby department.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Monitor the seasonal sales that are put on yearly and try to avoid repetition. Otherwise the stores are stuck with much useless inventory that was sold to customers in last year's ad. Bring in more Made In America vendors, its a growing trend.
