I worked at Ace Hardware part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

You learn a lot of home improvement skills and meet very educated people working in their departments.

Cons

Not much room to grow vertically. Best you can hope for is maybe get a manager position but working to get to that point isn't worth it

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep an eye on the workers who are genuine and actually try to help the customers

    OK but very seasonal offering too few hours for most needing a job.

    Pros

    This is a nice little company with good managers and staff that does a good job with team work and do not leave their work for others to do but carry their load. All employees appear to be honest with good work ethic and give good service to the customers.

    Cons

    Not enough hours and a specific employee consistently carries mis-information about fellow employees to one of the owners. This employee is a favorite and uses the method to elevate self in eyes of owner. If favorite does not like you you will never get more than a few hours. It is a shame because it is really not that competitive an environment.

    A very rewarding experience in service and ingenuity with every day bringing new projects and an oppurtunity to learn.

    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.
