Great Experience!

Intern (Former Employee)
Oak Brook, IL

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

ProsThe 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
