Good learning experience, gets dull after a year or two

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Colonia, NJ

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

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

ConsNot 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 Senior ManagementKeep an eye on the workers who are genuine and actually try to help the customers

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
