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

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.

    I worked at Ace Hardware full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.

    Current Contractor - Financial Consultant in Oakbrook Ter, IL

    I have been working at Ace Hardware as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Its a good company to work for if you are a contractor and do not really care about anything else other then a paycheck

    Cons

    Just too unprofessional in a lot of ways. Have way to many contractors who are told from day one that they should not have any hope of becoming permanent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some kind of structure for your employees. Cross department involvement should be there so that a person can grow in the long run.
