Pros

The company culture is easy going and positive. The Internship program is well organized and includes a business case competition which gives you great leadership, team working, and presentation experience.

Cons

To my understanding some interns felt they were under utilized, but I believe those few that felt that way simply did not take the initiative.

I personally had no negative experience at Ace Hardware Corporation

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Video record the business case competition presentations and try to get a few chief executives to sit in on them.

    Pros

    growth in work place, knowledge, and employee loyalty. The training that ACE offers is a great tool and will teach you a lot in the retail field that you can use anywhere.

    Cons

    Not to flexible with schedule, with long hours. Although it is retail, you have to work almost every weekend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start high with wage negotiations. Use the training program to it fullest.

    Pros

    Laid back, easy, good hours

    Cons

    pay, always made minimum wage. Each store is separately owned so everyone one has different rules. We had to wear slacks instead of jeans which was bad cause they aren't very cheap and they would get ruined.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    set some universal standards and do more mystery shops
